Product Description

From the Back Cover

'Of the greatest significance... The first volume of George Perle's two-volume study on the two operas of Alban Berg... is one of those few works of scholarship and analysis you can label 'definitive'; it may in time be supplemented, but not superseded.' - Richard Dyer, Boston Sunday Globe.

HASH(0x9c549e34) out of 5 stars Detailed analysis of Berg's first opera. 26 Dec. 1998
By Fred A Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author has written perhaps the definitive analysis of Berg's Wozzeck. Mandatory backgound reading for true students of Berg's idoms.
