Summary
"From Daniel Albright comes a collection of recent essays on music and on dance. In these essays, Albright strives to show that music history has an aesthetic of its own, and how music history interacts with intellectual history (from Rousseau and the Encyclopedistes to Paul de Man). The method of these essays is juxtapositive: by abutting music against literature and painting, and by abutting the musics of different centuries, Albright tries to frame a particular work, to isolate what is arresting and important in it." "The essays range widely, from Schubert Lieder to Loie Fuller to Xenakis and Elliott Carter; but they rarely stray far from opera, for the opera house is the venue where the performances speak the most intricate and significant language invented by our culture - a language that speaks in music, and words, and pictures, and light."--BOOK JACKET
