"This well argued book piques one's curiosity"
-J.Behrens, The Pennsylvania Academy of Music
"A valuable and persuasive contribution to our understanding of contemporary music, and one with which anyone with any investment in this, our own, musical period, should be familiar."
-Mark Sealey, Classical Net Review
In this book, David Metzer provides intriguing perspectives on both developments in music from 1980 onwards and the larger history of modernism, showing how modernist idioms remain vital in the contemporary scene. The study investigates what makes the decades after 1980 a distinct period in the history of modernism.
