Description: In the first full-scale biography of a dominating figure in twentieth-century American music, Anthony Tommasini tells the richly textured story of Virgil Thomson's experiences as a composer, influential critic, and gay man. Writing with exclusive, full access to Thomson's papers and from extensive interviews and research, he recounts: . Thomson's early years in turn-of-the-century Kansas City's strange mixture of antebellum racial divides...his first steps in the arts, guided by a troubled older man, himself a closeted homosexual in a time when disclosure could destroy a life... the crystallizing of his musical ambitions as an often-contentious student of Nadia Boulanger's in Paris...his pioneering collaboration with Gertrude Stein on Four Saints in Three Acts...his rivalry with fellow composers such as Aaron Copland...how he settled personal scores and advanced his own agenda during his reign on the New York Herald Tribune as America's most important, and best, music critic...his lasting impact on, and sometimes troubled interactions with, younger composers such as Leonard Bernstein, John Cage, Paul Bowles, Ned Rorem, and Philip Glass...and through it all the unending struggle to write, and win an audience for, music that spoke directly and simply to the life of his time.
