    schema:description "Aesthetics, the role of the artist in society, music by other twentieth-century composers, and above all Tippett's own works are the subjects treated in this book. A whole section is devoted to questions of interpretation and performance, and should be especially useful to performers, conductors, and opera directors. Tippett on Music distils the intellectual opinions and artistic experience of an internationally celebrated composer, one whose life-span has stretched through almost the whole of the twentieth century, and whose compositional output has remained consistent and challenging, right into his late eighties. The book ends with a glimpse of what Tippett thinks composers could achieve in the next millennium."@en ;
