The aesthetics of survival : a composer's view of twentieth-century music by George Rochberg( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, the author addresses the legacy of modernism in music and its related effect on the cultural milieu, particularly its overemphasis on the abstract, rationalist thinking embraced by contemporary science, technology, and philosophy. Rochberg argues for the renewal of holistic values in order to ensure the survival of music as a humanly expressive art."--Jacket

A dance of polar opposites : the continuing transformation of our musical language by George Rochberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Dance of Polar Opposites : The Continuing Transformation of Our Musical Language, the renowned American composer George Rochberg distilled a lifetime of insights about Western music across some three hundred years. Rochberg describes how the asymmetrical tonal language of the late eighteenth century--the era of Haydn and Mozart--evolved through the gradual incursion of symmetry into a system based on the juxtaposition of tonal and atonal, asymmetrical and symmetrical--as seen in notable composers such as Webern, Prokofiev, and Rochberg himself.
