Music of Many Means: Sketches and Essays on the Music of Robert Erickson (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Music of Many Means introduces musicians, scholars, and listeners to composer Robert Erickson's artistic journey. His reluctance to court national and international recognition kept him out of the contemporary music spotlight, but his best known works include Kryl for solo trumpet, General Speech, and The Idea of Order at Key West. This book combines autobiographical sketches by Erickson and essays by John MacKay that provide the reader with insights into Erickson's creative process along with an objective, analytical discussion of his works. It includes lists of compositions, a bibliography, a discography, and musical examples scattered throughout the text. Music of Many Means will provide scholars with avenues for further research and listeners with a deeper appreciation of Erickson's music.
