Description
 
Traces the development of classical music from the early years of the 20th cent. to the present day. Covers the major figures of the past hundred years, from Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Varese, and Webern to Boulez, Cage, and Stockhausen. Offers a guided tour of the sense behind the sound and an analysis of major musical trends. Using insights gained from interviews with key figures in modern music -- incl. Pierre Boulez, John Cage, and Milton Babbitt -- Peyser brings the personalities behind this dramatic musical revolution to life. Then, based on her knowledge of rising stars such as Anthony Cornicello and Augusta Read Thomas, she offers her thoughts and predictions about the future of serious music. Photos.
