Tippett on music by Michael Tippett ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aesthetics, the role of the artist in society, music by other twentieth-century composers, and above all Tippett's own works are the subjects treated in this book. A whole section is devoted to questions of interpretation and performance, and should be especially useful to performers, conductors, and opera directors. Tippett on Music distils the intellectual opinions and artistic experience of an internationally celebrated composer, one whose life-span has stretched through almost the whole of the twentieth century, and whose compositional output has remained consistent and challenging, right into his late eighties. The book ends with a glimpse of what Tippett thinks composers could achieve in the next millennium

Gerhard on music : selected writings by Roberto Gerhard ( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Catalan-born composer Roberto Gerhard (1896-1970) left significant musical and documentary legacies. Exiled to Britain, with the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Gerhard eventually achieved wide recognition by performers and conductors as a composer whose music was essential to the modern repertoire. In this, the first book in English to be devoted to Gerhard, Meirion Bowen collects many of the composer's articles, reviews, lectures and broadcasts to demonstrate the full extent and continuity of Gerhard's artistic and creative thinking."--Jacket
