Opera In The Twentieth Century, Sacred, Profane, Godot
Ethan Mordden      
ISBN: 0195022882
Oxford University Press New Y ork 1978  8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Hard Cover Music. Opera. Tracing the rise of modern music drama from its 19th century Wagnerian peak, Mordden shows how modern opera has evolved along two revolutionary lines of development; first, the increasing importance of the poetry in relation to the music, and second, the blending of the traditional themes of classical opera with the contemporary emergence of surrealism and vernacular comedy; within this analytical framework Mordden examines the significant works of Puccini, Strauss, Debussy, Poulenc, Britten and Henze as well as the twelve tone experiments of Schoenberg, Berg and their disciples. Poor insect-damaged and price-clipped d/j, 357 pages, book itself is very good with just light foxing on edges of pages.  Very Good/Poor
