Abstract:

"Throughout the greater part of the twentieth century, Michael Tippett (1905-1998) was a prolific letter-writer. His many correspondents included family, friends and lovers, colleagues in the music world, journalists, poets, dramatists and political activists. Published to coincide with the centenary of his birth, these carefully selected letters provide us with a first-hand account of the composer's private and professional life, revealing a uniquely personal view which until now has remained largely unknown to the public." "From the bombing of his cottage in Oxted and the highs and lows of teaching amateur musicians at Morley College, to the ecstatic experience of artistic breakthrough that led to progress on a new composition, each new event and accomplishment is documented with honesty, clarity and urgency."--BOOK JACKET.
