Furtwängler on music : essays and addresses by Wilhelm Furtwängler( Book )

96 editions published between 1948 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wilhelm Furtw?ler left not only some of the greatest interpretations of operatic and symphonic music on record, but also expressed his views on musical issues of the moment in a number of outspoken essays and talks. His writings range from practical matters of performance and interpretation to aesthetic reflections on what he saw as the alarming direction in which music was developing in the wake of Schoenberg and the twelve-tone system of composition. Professor Ronald Taylor has here, for the first time, translated and annotated a selection of Furtw?ler's writings covering the four decades from the First World War to the conductor's death in 1954, and prefaced them with an essay on Furtw?ler's controversial career and complicated personality. The result is a collection of stimulating pieces with a claim on our attention, made all the greater for reflecting the musical and philosophical ideals of one of the great conductors of the twentieth century."--Provided by publisher
