Trackings: Composers Speak with Richard Dufallo

Richard Dufallo, Author Oxford University Press, USA $40 (432p) ISBN 978-0-19-505816-1
Dufallo, a distinguished conductor of contemporary music, here interviews European and American composers whose works he has performed. His penetrating questions explore musical philosophy, compositional methods and his subjects' relations with other musicians and composers. Dufallo's chosen 26 are prominent figures in contemporary music (the oldest is Aaron Copland and the youngest David Del Tredici) so the discussions--intense, technical and permeated with excitement--concern the most significant musical developments and controversies of the 20th century. In between the interviews, Dufallo recounts his own career and clarifies his commitment to new music. Photos not seen by PW. (Jan.)
