Three seminal figures in 20th-century music are considered in this volume. First, the life and works of B la Bart k, the Hungarian composer who drew deeply on the folklore of his homeland to bring a fresh vitality into 20th-century music, are treated by L szl Somfai and Vera Lampert, working with resources of the Budapest Bart k Archive. Second, Igor Stravinsky, whose life--from his upbringing in prerevolutionary Russia, through the intellectual crucible that was the Paris of the 1920s, to his final years in Los Angeles and New York--is charted by Eric Walter White, while his works are tellingly set in context by Jeremy Noble. Third, Paul Hindemith, the craftsman/composer par excellence, is considered by Ian Kemp. Taken together, these articles brilliantly illuminate the forces bearing on Western music in the early to mid-20th century.
