Luigi Boccherini – Musica Amorosa

Boccherini, after being ignored for so long, is starting to re-engage our attention again and Kaiserkern’s book will go a long way to giving us the background we need.

He was highly regarded throughout Europe during his lifetime and the author of around 500 compositions, including symphonies, chamber music and vocal works as well as sonatas and concertos for the cello.

Gavin Bryars

Gavin Bryars

Essential reading for understanding – and playing – Bryars’s music.
Claire Jackson, BBC Music Magazine

Arguably the most important British post-minimalist composer, Gavin Bryars has worked in classical music, jazz, free improvisation, minimalism, historicism, avant-garde, and experimental music. His style has evolved since his first piece, The Sinking of the Titanic (1969) and he remains a provocative yet accessible composer capable of working in a variety of different musical genres.

With a Foreword by Steve Reich, this book celebrates his 80th birthday by bringing together musicians, colleagues and collaborators who have worked with Bryars, each discussing one particular aspect of his work.
