Product Overview

"Music at the Limits" is the first book to bring together three decades of Edward W. Said''s essays and articles on music. Addressing the work of a variety of composers, musicians, and performers, Said carefully draws out music''s social, political, and cultural contexts and, as a classically trained pianist, provides rich and often surprising assessments of classical music and opera. Said saw music as a reflection of his ideas on literature and history and paid close attention to its composition and creative possibilities. Eloquent and surprising, "Music at the Limits" preserves an important dimension of Said''s brilliant intellectual work and cements his reputation as one of the most influential and groundbreaking scholars of the twentieth century.
