Style and Idea in the Lyric Suite of Alban Berg
"Perle's contribution in both domains, the analytical and the biographical, have their original and primary impetus in his studies of the Lyric Suite, a work that has preoccupied him since 1937. This Pendragon edition brings the wealth of his earlier writings on the Lyric Suite together for the first time and includes, in addition, new material on the quartet's history, new analytical observations, and a comparative study of the sketches and drafts that allows the reader to convert the currently published score into an authoritatively corrected edition."--BOOK JACKET.
