Description - Joaquin Rodrigo: Writings on Music by Raymond Calcraft

  • This volume makes available Rodrigo's writings to English-speaking readers throughout the world.
  • The generous selection reveals an outstanding critical mind, equally illuminating on the main developments in the history of classical music and its most important composers, from Bach and Mozart to Verdi and Puccini, as well as Rodrigo's contemporaries.
  • Rodrigo's writings also cover many aspects of the culture and music of Spain and the country's major composers, as well as being an invaluable guide to an understanding and appreciation of Rodrigo's own works.
  • The composer's style of writing is extremely varied: by turns incisive, eloquent, poetic, or delightfully humorous.
  • Given the world-wide fame and popularity of his music, the availability in English of a large number of the composer's many articles and critical reviews will be of the greatest interest to musicians, scholars, music critics, and music-lovers alike.
