Lady Alessandra, half Italian, has a fiery, passionate nature, tempered by her cool British half. After the death of her husband, she has fled Italy to escape dark rumours of her involvement with a radical group. She scales the heights of London's Polite Society, but with the arrival of Italian scholar Frederico Bellazoni, she knows that her dark past has followed her to England. Lord James Pierson, famed for his career in the British army, senses that the lovely lady is running from something. Drawn to her beauty and vulnerability, Lord James soon learns her secret, and vows to protect her. Yet even his help may not be enough to extricate her from Bellazoni's maniacal plans.

Authors:
Barney Childs, Elliott Schwartz, Jim Fox

This anthology of essays, interviews, and autobiographical pieces provides an invaluable overview of the evolution of contemporary music,from chromaticism, serialism, and indeterminacy to jazz, vernacular, electronic, and non-Western influences. Featuring classic essays by Stravinsky, Stockhausen, and Reich, as well as writings by lesser-known but equally innovative composers such as Jack Beeson, Richard Maxfield, and T. J. Anderson, this collection covers a broad range of styles and approaches. Here you will find Busoni's influential "Sketch of a New Esthetic of Music" Partch's exploration of a new notation system Babbitt's defence of advanced composition in his controversial "Who Cares If You Listen?" and Pauline Oliveros's meditations on sound. Now updated with fifteen new composers including Michael Tippet, György Ligeti, Gunther Schuller, Ben Johnston, Sofia Gubaidulina, and William Bolcom, this important book gathers together forty-nine pieces,many out of print and some newly written for this volume,which serve as a documentary history of twentieth-century music, in theory and practice. Impassioned, provocative, and eloquent, these writings are as exciting and diverse as the music they discuss.
