Tchaikovsky and His Contemporaries: A Centennial Symposium

Synopsis

Commemorating the centenary of Tchaikovsky's death, these essays reassess the life and work of the composer from a variety of perspectives, ranging from the musicological and biographical to broader ones addressing his place in the development of the arts in Europe and America. As they make clear, there is much about Tchailkovsky's achievement that has been taken for granted, and the essays included in this collection represent as much acts of reevaluation as of celebration.
