Irving Fine: An American Composer in His Time

Front Cover
Pendragon Press, 2005 - Music - 334 pages
"Fine's growth stemmed from not only his probing musical and creative intellect but also his personal and professional relationships with Aaron Copland and four Boston-associated composers: Leonard Bernstein, Lukas Foss, Harold Shapero and Arthur Berger. In addition to their Harvard and Brandeis connections, these men all worked at Tanglewood under the guidance of the legendary conductor Serge Koussevitzky." "The images in the book's photo section were gleaned from the albums of family and friends and show Fine from his youth to a few days before his death. They include his family, his Tanglewood and Brandeis activities, Koussevitzky, and contemporary composers such as Copland, Bernstein and Darius Milhaud, as well as the row chart for his String Quartet, from the Library of Congress's Irving Fine Collection."--BOOK JACKET.
