Summary: 'This welcome addition to an already distinguished body of literature on Grainger is remarkable for its strong focus on the composer's music . for a detailed, analytical look at the music and an insightful assessment of Grainger's hard-to-classify contribution, Mellers is indespensable. In his analyses of specific compositions, Mellers penetrates to the heart of Grainger's contribution and demonstrates the powerful link between Grainger the man and his music. Highly recommended.'Choice d 02/06/1993. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0198162707
Riassunto: A man of extraordinary charisma, Percy Grainger was at once a legendary virtuoso pianist, a composer of highly original music, an arranger, and a "disher up" of folk music who pierced to the music's heart, and figure of some historical significance in relation to ethnomusicology and music education. A study of the music of this paradoxical figure, this book looks at the musical influence on his compositions of folk-song and of Grieg, and of those apparent polar opposites, Delius and Bach. It examines some of his more significant pieces in detail; considers his work in recreating traditional material and the music of others; sees him as a champion and transcriber of what is now known as Early Music; and looks at his sometimes alarmingly eccentric notions as to music's nature and purpose. Overriding barriers between art, folk, and pop music, Grainger is difficult to categorize, and is, in the history of music, unique.
