Editorial Reviews

Review

"Carol Oja has recounted [McPhee's] story with outstanding thoroughness and sensitivity.... McPhee's legacy is a small body of specialized work, creative and scholarly, that suggested new paths in the music of this century. It deserved--indeed, awaited--the full and well-balanced study Oja has given it."

About the Author

Carol Oja is William Powell Mason Professor of Music at Harvard University. She is co-editor of Aaron Copland and his World, as well as author of Colin McPhee: Composer in Two Worlds, which won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award, and American Music Recordings: A Discography of U.S. Composers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Colin McPhee lived in Bali in the 1930's and learned first hand from the Balineses the art of Gamelan. Incredible story, rich in detail by the biographer. A must for anyone interested in the lives of ethnomusicoligists. See also House in Bali by Colin McPhee for his personal story about living in Bali.
