Overview

(Unlocking the Masters). From Mozart to Debussy to Olivier Messiaen, the works of 50 composers are closely examined in The Great Instrumental Works . It is a book for anyone who enjoys the lively arts of opera, drama, film, literature, and popular song and who wants to find out what is really going on in the symphonies of Mozart, the string quartets of Beethoven, the orchestral works of Debussy and Ravel, and the contemporary pieces of Olivier Messiaen and Arvo Part. The author, Father Owen Lee, is an internationally known commentator on music and the arts, and writes with a style that has been called "rich, dense, and profound" (Citizen's Weekly), "highly readable" (Choice), and "often irreverently amusing" (Opera News). With Father Lee as a guide, the intricacies of classical forms and key relationships are rendered not only intelligible but meaningful, the music itself becomes life-enhancing, and its great composers come vividly to life.
