LISTEN WITH INTELLIGENCE.
Whether they listen to Mozart or Duke Ellington, Aaron Copland invites you to ask two basic questions: Are they hearing everything that is going on? Are you really being sensitive to it? If you cannot answer yes to both questions, you owe it to yourself to read this book. With his provocative suggestions, Copland guides you through a deeper appreciation of the most rewarding of all art forms. This classic work, the only book of its kind written by an eminent American compser, features:
In this edition, leading music critic Alan Rich continues Copland's discussion of contemporary music for today's listeners and traces the composer's success in bringing music lovers 'closer to the magical mysteries of the music we can hear and want to hear better.'
'By far the best thing of its kind yet to appear.'
- Modern Music
'One of the most helpful, sensible, and enjoyable discourses on the subject ever published.'
- Victor Record Review
WITH FOREWORD AND AN EPILOGUE BY ALAN RICH AND A NEW APPRECIATION BY LEONARD SLATKIN
