(Collected Essays)Igor Stravinsky/ed. Heidy Zimmermann & Hermann Danuser - Boosey & Hawkes
This richly illustrated collection of 18 essays provides an overview of current research on The Rite of Spring, opening new perspectives on the work and its impact. Turning to previously unknown sources, the essays cover the circumstances of the Rite's emergence, its contexts and revolutionary potential, as well as its cultural background, poised between archaism and modernity. The myths surrounding the work are critically examined, and the first century of its international reception is viewed from a wide range of vantage points, from choreographic and musical realizations to the responses of composers and analysts. Special introductory price: $67.00 until March 31, 2013. Price after April 1, 2013: $95.00.
