Lutoslawski Studies presents for the first time an overview of the great twentieth-century composer Witold Lutoslawskis works and his compositional style. Whereas most previous literature on Lutoslawski's music has focussed on disparate or isolated aspects of his compositional technique, this study encompasses areas such as the composer's aesthetics, the evolution of his style, and the compositional strategies which apply to broader periods of his creativity. The international team of contributors (including the leading Lutoslawski scholars Steve Stucky, Charles Bodman Rae, and Martina Homma) bring to this study the results of recent research, offering a broader approach that links many issues which have been treated selectively in former studies, as well as throwing new light on the essence of the composer's music and the way in which modern and traditional elements co-exist.

An indispensable read for specialists and students of his music. Refreshingly, its 14 academic essays, fastidiously edited by Zbigniew Skowron, also have much to offer the braver Lutoslawski enthusiast BBC Music Magazine
