Francis Poulenc : A Bio-Bibliography Hardback
Part of the Bio-Bibliographies in Music series
Francis Poulenc: A Bio-Bibliography is a thorough presentation of the works of this often performed and critically appreciated 20th-century composer.
George R. Keck traces events in Poulenc's life and offers a list of works and performances with the primary focus on those facts and influences which contributed to the development of the composer's distinctive musical style.
Included in the text is a substantial discography as well as annotated entries by and about the composer which cover every phase of his career and affirm Poulenc's place in 20th-century music. The highly selective annotated bibliography comprises the major portion of the text.
Since Keck's documentation of the development of Poulenc's style covers only representative works, he includes a list of all of Poulenc's compositions, arranged both alphabetically and chronologically, in the two appendixes.
A complete index of names, places, and titles concludes the book.
