L. Grigoryev (au); Y. Platek (au); Yuri Sviridov (tr)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
The first book in English about the greatest living composer in the Soviet Union, Tikhon Nikolayevich Khrennikov. Not only is he a successful composer in almost every facet of “classical” music, but he is also a pianist who has often performed his own works, he is an actor playing in his own operas, & he is an administrator, being the Secretary-General of the Union of Soviet Composers since the days of Stalin. He has composed music for the theater, opera, film violin, cello voice, & much more. His music has often been played in America, introduced by such giants as Leopold Stokowski, Charles Munch, Eugene Ormandy, & Franz Waxman. Khrennikov is the man most responsible for the shaping of Soviet music during the last half of the 20th century. Illustrations.
