schema:description"Raymond Fearn suggests that Dallapiccola should be understood not only as an influential figure in the postwar development of Italian music, but also as one who renewed and revitalized the older traditions of Italian music."--Jacket."@en

schema:description""The Music of Luigi Dallapiccola is the first book in English which deals with the work of Dallapiccola as a whole, offering a survey of his development as a composer from the first, hesitant vocal compositions of his student years up to the works of his last decade, in which Italian lyricism is combined with great formal and constructional rigor. Dallapiccola was the first Italian to adopt the twelve-tone techniques of Schoenberg, but he placed them within a "Mediterranean" ambience of sensuousness and sharply contoured formal outlines."@en
schema:description""Most prominent of these is the three-movement Canti di prigionia (Songs of imprisonment), in which the composer created a powerful piece of "protest music" against the oppressions of fascism by setting prayers by three prisoners awaiting execution: Mary Stuart, Boethius, and Savonarola. Dallapiccola also set texts by writers as diverse as James Joyce, Salvatore Quasimodo, Antonio Machado, Goethe, and Heine.""@en
