schema:description""The often violent extremes of opinion which he aroused in others created a legacy of prejudices and assumptions which has for three-quarters of a century remained largely unchallenged and has militated against a more sober assessment of his music and its place in musical history."--BOOK JACKET. "Stephen Studd's biography offers just such an assessment. Together with an extensive bibliography, appendices with selections from the composer's essays and poetry, and an up-to-date discography of the ever-growing number of recordings, this biography is much needed and timely."--Jacket."@en
