While often regarded during his lifetime as an open-minded musician of wide tastes whose music spanned many styles from avant-garde to jazz, he is revealed here as a thinker of note and a graceful writer. He depicts with great generosity of feeling the revolution that modern music has undergone this century and his own role in it, giving a clear account of his attitude towards his work and that of his fellow composers.
