Stravinsky's Sacrifice to Apollo





Description on the dust jacket: "'This book is the first full-length critical study of Stravinsky's music to appear in England. It deals with the whole of his output during the last twenty years (from The Fire Bird to the Capriccio) in such detail as to provide a complete guide not only for the theatre and concert-goers, but also for wireless, gramophone, and pianola enthusiasts; and it discusses the problems raised by his frequent changes in style. Although by no means laudatory, this study is sufficient answer in itself to Stravinsky's recent complaint in which he says the greater part of criticism directed against me comes from England."
