Description - Bruckner Studies by Timothy L. Jackson
Bruckner Studies, first published in 1997, presents musicological and theoretical research on the life and music of Anton Bruckner. It is one of the most important English-language books on the composer since Robert Simpson's The Essence of Bruckner. The essays provide fresh biographical insights into his enigmatic personality, working procedures, and circle of students and friends; consider the fascinating history of the dissemination of his music during his lifetime and in this century, including its reception in Nazi Germany; and provide analytical perspectives on his musical style and its origins. The volume challenges the reader to reassess the man and his music in a fresh light, unencumbered by decades of special interest and propaganda which have coloured perceptions of Bruckner for more than a century.
