His allegiance to the austere rigor of Arnold Schoenberg's musical revolution was balanced by a lifelong devotion to the warm sensuousness of Viennese musical tradition and a love of lyric utterance, the emotional intensity of opera, and the expressive nuance of late-Romantic tonal practice. The essays in this collection explore the specific qualities of Berg's brand of musical modernism, and present newly translated letters and documents that illuminate his relationship to the politics and culture of his era. Of particular significance are the first translations of Berg's newly discovered stage work Night Nocturne , Hermann Watznauer's intimate account of Berg's early years, and the famous memorial issue of the music periodical Contributors consider Berg's fascination with palindromes and mirror images and their relationship to notions of time and identity; the Viennese roots of his distinctive orchestral style; his links to such Viennese contemporaries as Alexander Zemlinsky, Franz Schreker, and Erich Wolfgang Korngold; and his attempts to maneuver through the perilous shoals of gender, race, and fascist politics.

Giacomo Puccini is the first Italian composer upon whom Bard has trained its perceptive lens, joining such other recent subjects as Franz Schubert, Jean Sibelius, Alban Berg and Carlos Chavez. A complicated figure whose story is a paradox of popular success and the loss and gradual regaining of critical esteem, Puccini makes a perfect choice.
Situated at the advent of Modernism, his work represents both the popular apex and the beginning of the decline of his own chosen form. His critical reception is a case study in the turbulence and upheaval of Modernism and the First World War.

Hailey's introductory chapter is remarkable for the amount of evocative and trenchant detail he has managed to offer in a small space;.
Through operatic excerpts and more, this cluster of concerts and discussions examines the ways in which Italians perceived their newly unified homeland in the comparatively peaceful half-century between the Risorgimento the Italian unification movement of the 19 th century and the First World War.
