Card catalog description
"It has become increasingly apparent in recent decades that Stravinsky's music has had a far-reaching influence on the development of music in our century. Stravinsky's modernist innovations - evident in such features as his music's discontinuity, its stasis, its ritualised anti-narrative, its novel rhythmic and formal structures, its articulation of new kinds of musical time, and its reinterpretation of music and materials from the past - have helped shape much of the music of our time. This book represents a first substantial attempt at evaluating Stravinsky's technical and aesthetic legacy."
