Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This excellent study complements rather than competes with Eric Walter White's magisterial (and much longer) Stravinsky (Univ. of California Pr., 1980. 2d ed.). Griffiths, music critic for The New Yorker , provides the customary chronological narrative but organizes each chapter into two parts: a brief sketch of Stravinsky's activities during the period of his career under consideration and then a description and analysis of that period's compositions. Griffiths makes stimulating connections among Stravinsky's oeuvre and groups the works to emphasize larger trends. For example, Chapter 25 ("Stories from the Bible") focuses on the major works of the composer's ninth decade, which draw from biblical sources. For libraries that already have White's volume, which discusses individual compositions at greater length, Griffith's would be a superb addition. Highly recommended.
