Listening to Jennifer Higdon : The Musical Style of the Pulitzer Prize Winning Composer Paperback / softback

Description

Renowned composer Jennifer Higdon is best known for her symphonic pieces "Blue Cathedral," "Concerto for Orchestra," "City Scape," "Concerto 4-3" and "Violin Concerto" (2010 Pulitzer Prize).

These compositions illustrate her breadth of style and avant-garde technique, inspired by bluegrass and folk melodies.

The author examines these works-with commentary by Higdon-as well as the music of her first opera, with a focus on compositional history, musical characteristics, formal analysis and critical reception.
