schema:reviewBody""Lutoslawski Studies presents for the first time an overview of the great Polish twentieth-century composer Witold Lutoslawski's works and his compositional style. Whereas most previous literature on Lutoslawski's music has focussed on disparate or isolated aspects of his compositional technique, this study encompasses areas such as the composer's aesthetics, the evolution of his style, and the compositional strategies which apply to broader areas of his creativity. The international team of contributors (including the leading Lutoslawski scholars Steven Stucky, Charles Bodman Rae, and Martina Homma) bring to this study the results of recent research, offering a broader approach that links many issues which have been treated selectively in former studies, as well as throwing new light on the essences of the composer's music."--BOOK JACKET."
