Intellect’s Critical Guides to Contemporary Composers are accessible but rigorous introductions to key figures in the world of contemporary music. Neither simply biographies, nor exclusively analytical discussions, the focus is on critical issues highlighted by historical and biographical context and the musical content of the work. Particularly, the series seeks to engage with composers whose place within contemporary musical cultures is prominent and secure, but who have been overlooked within the Anglo-American sphere. Designed for scholars and students alike, this series presents insights into vital figures in contemporary music, previously unavailable within English-language musicology.
