- About this book
This correspondence represents a suggestive complexity of documents. As it bears witness to the past sixty years of 20th century Italian musical life it also illustrates the laborious poetical and critical emancipation of the Italian avant-garde from the bonds of conformism of régime and provincialism and the sometimes unbearable weight of comparison with European musical cultures. It then becomes the vivacious narration of a brotherhood between personalities who are completely different yet are forced to combine the themes of their ways of thinking and working against stream in a «conventionally rebellious» agreement.
