Que lisez-vous cet été ? Les conseils lecture des écrivains
The first ever book to be published in English about the momentous Russian composer Alfred Schnittke (1934-98), this extensive biography presents a fascinating portrait of a man whose musical output was inextricably linked to the strictures of life in the Soviet Union. His music - a strong reflection of Russian cultural and social traditions, and underlying mentality - enjoys tremendous popularity in his own country, and increasingly on an international level.
The author gives a detailed and admiring discussion of Schnittke's music and his theories, arguing that the various stylistic elements in his works - his characteristic polystylism - may be perceived as part of a new, more universal musical language.
