BeschreibungFeatures biographical insights into two outstanding musical personalities and commentary on the vitality of the British musical scene of the period.
PressestimmenVigorous and humorous, these Letters can be strongly recommended. TEMPO One of the delights is the peephole it gives onto the musical scene in (and out of) London during the period... Invaluable...will be read not only as a reference and source book, but also for its own intrinsic pleasure. It gives far more insight into the personalities of its two protagonists than either Banfield's biography of Finzi or Ferguson's tight-lipped memoir. IVOR GURNEY JOURNAL (Trevor Hold) Valuable collection... illuminates the character of two remarkable British composers. A fascinating aspect of this volume is the evidence it provides of the richness and variety of English musical life between the wars...challeng(ing) conventional assumptions concerning the supposed insularity of the British musical establishment during this period.
