Michael Tippett: The Biography

16th April 2020


Out of stock

The music of the British composer Michael Tippett – including the oratorio ‘A Child of Our Time’, five operas, and four symphonies – is among the most visionary of the twentieth century. But little has been written about his extraordinary life. In this long-awaited first biography, Oliver Soden weaves a century-spanning narrative of epic scope and penetrating insight. Soden has discovered troves of unpublished letters and manuscripts, and recorded moving interviews with Tippett’s friends and colleagues.
