"Catalan-born composer Roberto Gerhard (1896-1970) left significant musical and documentary legacies. Exiled to Britain, with the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Gerhard eventually achieved wide recognition by performers and conductors as a composer whose music was essential to the modern repertoire. In this, the first book in English to be devoted to Gerhard, Meirion Bowen collects many of the composer's articles, reviews, lectures and broadcasts to demonstrate the full extent and continuity of Gerhard's artistic and creative thinking."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
