British Music and Modernism, 1895-1960
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2010 - Music - 329 pages
Critical work on British music of the early 20th century has been hindered by perceptions of the repertory as insular in its references, escaping the modernity that surrounded its composers. This book explores how research has now begun to break down these perceptions.
