Memories And Commentaries

by Igor Stravinsky, Memories And Commentaries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Memories And Commentaries books, For the first time in one volume--the celebrated Stravinsky and Craft Conversations Few would dispute that Igor Stravinsky was the greatest composer of the twentieth century. Conductor and writer Robert Craft was his closest colleague and friend, and for over twenty-one years he lived with the Stravinskys in their Hollywood home. In the early 1950s he accompanied the composer on his concert tours, and from the mid-1950s to Stravinsky's death in 1971 he co-conducted his concerts. Together Stravinsky and Craft published five acclaimed collections known as the Conversations series, which sprung from informal talks between the two men. In this newly edited and re-structured one-volume version, Craft brings Stravinsky's reflections on his childhood, his family life, professional associates, and personal relationships into sharper focus and places the major compositions in their cultural milieux. The Conversations books are the only published writing attributed to Stravinsky that are actually "by him" in terms of fidelity to his thoughts and opinions, making this volume required reading for all fans and students of Stravinsky's music.

Stravinsky And The Russian Traditions

by Richard Taruskin, Stravinsky And The Russian Traditions Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Stravinsky And The Russian Traditions books, Taruskin demonstrates how Stravinsky achieved his modernist technique by combining what was most characteristically Russian in his musical training with stylistic elements abstracted from Russian folklore. The stylistic synthesis thus achieved formed Stravinsky as a composer for life, whatever the aesthetic allegiances he later professed.

Stravinsky

by Robert Craft, Stravinsky Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Stravinsky books, The standard biographical source for the last decades of Stravinsky's life and a unique trove of primary material on twentieth-century cultural and intellectual history, now again available, in expanded form. For nearly the last twenty-five years of Igor Stravinsky's incredibly full life, the noted musician, conductor, and writer Robert Craft was his closest colleague and friend, a trusted member of his household, and an important part of all of the composer's activities. Throughout these years, Craft kept a detailed diary, impressive in its powers of observation and characterization. That diary forms the basis for Stravinsky: Chronicle of a Friendship, now released in a substantially revised and expanded new edition. This edition includes nearly twice as many illustrations and more than 35% entirely new textual material. In addition, Craft adds an evocative "Postlude" in which he summarily brings matters forward to the death of Vera Stravinsky, several years after that of the Maestro.
