Harwood Academic Publishers, 1995 - Performing Arts - 533 pages
Until now, Ferneyhough's writings about music have been scattered, published in various languages and difficult, if not impossible, to find. This present collection brings together the majority of the composer's extant writings, many of them appearing in English for the first time, along with some edited transcripts of informal talks, and a number of important interviews. Although the vast majority of the texts deal with Ferneyhough's compositions, others reflect his activities as a highly influential composition teacher, and some touch on his recent work as a poet. Together, the writings provide a fascinating and engaging means of insight into the workings of the mind of a composer whose output could be regarded as one of the most significant of this century.
