Description - Masterworks of 20th Century Music by Douglas Lee

From Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring to Gustav Holst's The Planets and Igor Stravinsky's Le sacre du printemps , Masterworks of 20th-Century Music collects over 100 of the most celebrated and frequently played compositions by world composers. Based on the author's survey of dozens of American orchestras, these are works that we all recognize, but whose history we may not know. Each entry gives the reader a wealth of information about: the composer, when and where the piece was first performed, the "style" of the composition, and a basic analysis of the music. From the general reader to the music scholar, this book will prove a source of valuable information and a constant pleasure.
