SOBRE LA ÓPERA
Williams, Bernard; Menéndez Torrellas, Gabriel
Publishing House: Alianza, Madrid, 2010
[Machine Translation:] This volume brings together a number of workers, many of them unpublished, Bernard Williams wrote on a variety of topics, concrete operas and composers. Two aspects of music have special significance for him: the demands of composition, interpretation and performance of the opera, on the one hand, and the immediacy and strength of its emotional impact, the ability of music to stir both heart and the intellect, on the other. These trials, in which Williams displays his passion and lucidity, discussed and illustrated the continuing appeal of opera as an art form.
