Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

the reader is granted a more detailed picture of Tchaikovsky's day-to-day life than has been achieved in any singly-colume biography of the composer to date (Music and Letters)

An excellent, informative, often surprisingly moving book full of warmth and wisdom. (Classical Music)

The book is serious and valuable, and presents an excellent synthesis of scholarship that would otherwise almost certainly be inaccessible. (J.P.E. Harper-Scott, Times Literary Supplement)

A new, authoritative and agenda-setting biography. (Classical Music Magazine, Michael Quinn)

Cogently written, this is a hughely valuable addition to the Master Musicians series.

An excellent, informative, often surprisingly moving book full of warmth and wisdom. (Classical Music Magazine, Michael Quinn)

Wiley is authoritative but never unapproachable - and also refreshingly unsensationalist. (Liz Thomson, The Independent)

A dedicated and erudite volume that re-stimulates interest in this so-familiar composer. (Gramophone)

This coolly magisterial book...builds up a picture of this profoundly conflicted man, and his wondrous music. (Michael Church, The Independent on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

A giant in the pantheon of 19th century composers, Tchaikovsky continues to enthrall audiences today. From the Nutcracker--arguably the most popular ballet currently on the boards--Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty, to Eugene Onegin and Pique Dame, to the Symphony Pathetique and the always rousing, canon-blasting 1812 Overture--this prolific and beloved composer's works are perennial favorites. Now, John Wiley, a renowned Tchaikovsky scholar, provides a fresh biography aimed in classic Master Musicians style at the student and music lover. Wiley deftly draws on documents from imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet era sources, providing a more balanced look at recent controversies surrounding the marriage, death, and sexuality of the composer. The author dovetails the biographical material with separate chapters that treat the music thoroughly and fully, work-by-work, with more substantial explorations of Tchaikovsky's most familiar compositions. These analyses present new, even iconoclastic perspectives on the music and the composer's intent and expression. Several informative appendices, in the Master Musicians format, include an exhaustive list of works and bibliography.

HASH(0x94b17d74) étoiles sur 5 Crisp Prose, Objective Scholarship, and a Fun Read! 1 mai 2010
Par Lee O. Stokowski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In a volume that has brought forth criticism of "turgid, plodding, and pointless" from a News Junkie, one wonders what The Spare Bedroom Press has brought forth on the public. Well, quite simply what's been done here is a soundly researched and intelligently voiced biography of a composer who desperately needs it. So florid is the usual writing about Tchaikovsky that it's difficult not to think that the writer is trying to imitate the character of the music itself, rather than the person who composed it.

It a forthright, exceptionally well researched and purposefully well mixed scholarly and popular melange of prose, Roland John Wiley has managed to bring off a first rate volume. Would that this kind of dedication and puckish humor extended beyond the confines of his preferred specialities of Russian music to a larger canon of 19th century Beethovinian, Schubertian, or Chopinesque repertoire.

We would all be the richer for it.

HASH(0x94b17dc8) étoiles sur 5 This is a very good biography for students of music 20 décembre 2014
Par Terrence R. Calabrese - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a very good biography for students of music, musicians, and those who love the music of Tchaikovsky. It is an in depth portrait of the man and his musical genius. Being there are many pages of music provided, it helps if you can play the piano.

HASH(0x94b17f9c) étoiles sur 5 Save your money 4 novembre 2009
Par Forrest Chisman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Although it has been well reviewed, this book is turgid, plodding, and pointless. The pointlessness is deliberate. Amazingly the author goes out of his way to state that his thesis is that an accurate and insightful biography of Tcshaikovsky CANNOT be written. He proves his point, which may satisfy him personally, but leaves the reader wondering why he wasted his time and money.
