 About the Book 

This anthology contains eighteen representative examples of the particular difficulties presented by twentieth-century scores, stimulating consideration of the relationship between what is seen (the score) and what is heard (the music). The emphasisMoreThis anthology contains eighteen representative examples of the particular difficulties presented by twentieth-century scores, stimulating consideration of the relationship between what is seen (the score) and what is heard (the music). The emphasis in the period before 1945 is on major composers: Mahler, Debussy, Schoenberg, Ives, Stravinsky, Bartok, Varese, Webern, and Messiaen. For the period after the Second World War the authors have chosen examples of what is new from a notational point of view in works by Cage, Boulez, Stockhausen, Penderecki, Riley, and Cardew.
