About this Item

Folio. Original publisher's dark ivory wrappers printed in black and sepia. 1f. (blank), [i] (title), [i] (dedication and note), [i] (named cast list), [i] (cast), [i] (instrumentation), [ii] (synopsis), [i] (contents), 369, [i] (blank) pp. Wrappers very slightly worn with light crease and small price label affixed to upper. "One of America's most important composers of operas and large-scale song cycles, the literary merit of his works, their original vocal style, and their serious attention to musical and dramatic detail mark a significant contribution to these genres. Six Characters in Search of an Author (1953-6) fuses these two procedures [large symphonic structures alternating with arias and smaller musical segments following a single character's volatile shifts of mood] as well as using transformed recapitulations and epigrammatic musical ideas to punctuate events or sections." Bruce Saylor in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 27388
