内容紹介

A composer of enormous musical innovation and influence, Marc Blitzstein remains one of the most versatile and fascinating figures in the history of American music, his creative works running the gamut from Broadway musicals and film scores to concert and chamber pieces. As an open homosexual and a prominent leftist, Blitzstein constantly pushed the boundaries of acceptability in mid-century America in both his music and his life.
Award-winning music historian Howard Pollack's new biography is the first to put Blitzstein's music on equal footing with his politics, theatrical innovation, and other aspects of the composer's life. Pollack covers Blitzstein's life in full, from his childhood in Philadelphia to his violent death in Martinique at age 58. The author describes how this student of contemporary luminaries Arnold Schoenberg and Nadia Boulanger became swept up in the stormy political atmosphere of the 1920s and 1930s and throughout his career walked the fine line between his formal training and his populist principles in his composition. Indeed, Blitzstein developed a unique sound that drew on everything contemporary, from the high modernism of Schoenberg to swing and jazz. Pollack captures the astonishing breadth of Blitzstein's musical language?from politically scandalous Broadway musicals like The Cradle Will Rock and No for an Answer, to the patriotic Airborne Symphony, to lesser known early pieces, film scores, and chamber works. A fearless artist, Blitzstein translated Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera during the heyday of McCarthyism and the red scare, and, with Leonard Bernstein and Lotte Lenya, turned it into an off-Broadway sensation.
Beautifully written, drawing on new interviews with friends and family of the composer, and making extensive use of new archival and secondary sources, Marc Blitzstein presents the most complete biography of this quintessentially American composer.

レビュー

This is a thorough, in-depth, comprehensive exploration ... A momentous achievement indeed. (K.S. Todd, Choice)

Howard Pollack's massive new study reminds us that Blitzstein composed a huge amount of music, much of it virtually forgotten, still unpublished and unrecorded. (David Schiff, Times Literary Supplement)

A brilliantly researched new biography (Benjamin Ivry, Forward Newspaper)

5つ星のうち 5.0 Amazing contribution to American music history 2012/12/18
投稿者 Jack C - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
At a brisk 500 pages, Howard Pollack has done it again. In addition to his comprehensive biographies on John Alden Carpenter, Aaron Copland and George Gershwin (as well as a wonderful early book on Harvard composers), Pollack has created a true masterpiece with "Marc Blitzstein: His Life, His Work, His World." What I love most about Pollack's work is his ability to appeal to both scholars and laymen alike: his assessment of Blitzstein's contributions to American music as well as his social conscientiousness during an integral time in American history is impressive and masterfully crafted. Pollack's portrayal of Blitzstein, a significant composer who has, unfortunately, fallen into obscurity amidst our rapidly changing society, makes us contemplate what other American treasures have been cast into the shadows of our all-to-quickly depleting cultural memory. We can only hope that Howard Pollack continues writing books about other forgotten gems of American music, but regardless of his subject, Pollack's work is not to be left unread: it's just too darn good.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Required Reading 2012/12/29
投稿者 Daron A. Hagen - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazonで購入
As one who has spent a lifetime musically trawling the same professional and aesthetic waters as Blitzstein (music-theater, the Curtis connection, the unstable tonality gambit, and so forth) he has served as an example (both positive and negtaive) for me over the years. In light of that, from Eric Gordon's wonderful book to this irresistable and crucial one by Howard Pollack, I've followed the literature about MB closely.

This book should be required reading for every young composer thinking about a career writing music theater, any artist devoted to the proposition that good art can effect positive social change. (Blitzstein was a shining example of that.) It should also be required reading for contemporary conductors, who sometimes abrogate the normal order of things by directing the creative efforts of the living composers with whom they collaborate. (Blitzstein brooked none of that.)

I find it an essential addition to the literature, and am grateful to Howard Pollack and to Oxford for creating it and bringing it out.

A superb full biography of the artist: both good life-drama & top-of-the-ladder musical scholarship. A first-rate companion to Eric Gordon's biography of Blitzstein of thirty years ago
