Format: Hardcover
I can wholeheartedly recommend this book. It deals with a wide range of cultural questions surrounding the issue of modernity. John Borstlap has a passion for the subject and communicates with great precision and thoroughness. He is not afraid to argue his points with force but, I think, always with dignity and a dash of humour.

This book reveals the extent to which modernist ideology has inhibited (after reading Borstlap, I'm tempted to say 'prohibited') any alternative aesthetic principles. It's a real eye-opener; I hadn't realised the extent of the problem.

Despite its controversial findings and forthright tone, 'The Classical Revolution: Thoughts on new music in the 21st century' exudes optimism and can be enjoyed by the non-musician. In fact, anyone with an interest in the cultural activity of our times, with an eye to the future, should read this book.
