One writer and musicologist who embarked upon a deep study of the essence of Stravinsky, was the great Hans Keller - a Viennese intellectual who became a cultural Svengali at the BBC in the 1960s (...) This extremely well-produced, well-organised book (is) a fitting tribute, both to the critic and his composing hero. (...) what undoubtedly "lightens the load" of this Stravinsky treasury, are the many curious and engaging illustrations from the pen of Keller's wife, the artist Milein Cosman. (...) Cosman's work provides the ideal epilogue to this survey of a great man's life. QUARTERLY REVIEW Now there is more than ever to provide insight into the variety, profundity, breadth and genius... of Stravinsky's work. It's meticulously-produced, well-indexed, closely annotated and referenced. ... (a) useful and recommendable book which you should certainly consider adding to your collection if you are interested in Stravinsky's work at all. CLASSICAL.NET
