Chester Music, 1984; ISBN 0906594014; 152 pages
Witold Lutoslawski (1913-1994), who claimed that 'talking was not his speciality', emerges during a series of conversations with the music critic Tadeusz Kaczynski as a most lucid and articulate commentator, not only on his own compositions, but on every aspect of twentieth-century music and musicianship. This updated record of those conversations makes for compelling and thought-provoking reading, offering a fascinating insight into the mind of this great composer. Price indication: $ 23.95
bookZbigniew Skowron Lutoslawski Studies
Oxford University Press, 2001; ISBN 0198166605; 392 pages
Lutoslawski Studies presents for the first time an overview of the great twentieth-century composer Witold Lutoslawski's works and his compositional style, focusing on areas such as the composer's aesthetics, the evolution of his style, and the compositional strategies which apply to broader periods of his creativity. The international team of contributors bring to this study the results of recent research, offering a broader approach that links many issues which have been treated selectively in former studies, as well as throwing new light on the essence of the composer's music and the way in which modern and traditional elements co-exist.
