Anmärkning bestånd: B25.581 Libris-ID: 10613584Summary: Albright offers insights into how composers of genius can help us to understand Shakespeare. Musicking Shakespeare demonstrates how four composers - Purcell, Berlioz, Verdi, and Britten - respond to the distinctive features of Shakespeare's plays: their unwieldiness, their refusal to fit into interpretive boxes, their ranting quality, their arbitrary bursts of gorgeousness. The four composers break the normal forms of opera - of music altogether - in order to come to terms with the challenges that Shakespeare presents to the music dramatist
