Description
The compositions of Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998) are known for their exquisite construction, their unlikely embrace of material from disparate sources, their predisposition for melancholia, and their tremendous beauty.

This compilation is one of the composer's last works, assembling previously published and unpublished essays, and supplementing these with an interview with a friend (cellist and scholar Alexander Ivashkin). Always keenly perceptive, the book is illustrated with musical examples, many of them in Schnittke's own hand.

In his Schnittke Reader, the composer speaks of his life, his works, other composers, performers, and a broad range of topics in 20th-century music. The volume is rounded out with reflections by some of Schnittke's contemporaries.
