Product description

Review

'This first comprehensive monograph on Eisler describes the man and the composer with, as yet, unequalled precision and wealth of detail. The author's aim is to portray the conflicts and development of the last 50 years as focussed upon the historical personality of Harms Eisler. Special attention should be called not only to the amount of new information the book contains, but also to the author's concise style.' Radio Bremen

Book Description

Albrecht Betz divides Eisler's life and music into four periods, and shows how Eisler is distinguished from other great twentieth-century composers in his belief that music had a social function. Originally published in German in 1976, this English edition is illustrated with music examples and includes a complete list of works and a bibliography.
