In this significant study of the music of Pierre Boulez, Dr. Koblyakov provides a complete analysis of "Le Marteau sand Maitre" and deals with the development of serial music in the twentieth century and the problems of serial organization in general. He reaches stimulating conclusions about serial thinking and harmony in themusic of Pierre Boulez, thus enabling an understanding of the intricacies of this major composer's compositional techniques.

Industry Reviews

"A goldmine of information...this is probably the single most important examination of a Boulez composition." -Jason Gibbs of Notes, December 1992 "An important part of the work is dedicated to a minute analysis of my Marteau sans Maitre. I was very much impressed by his knowledge and acute sense of analysis." -Pierre Boulez "It is still the greatest single step forward in Boulez studies so far published...and serves to renew one's admiration for the fact that such eloquently febrile music should stem from such coolly calculated mazes and matrices. The mystery may be reduced, but the magic is enhanced." -Arnold Whittall of Music and Letters, April 92 "Legions of serial analysts...will study and quote from it for some time to come. Koblyakov's penetration of Boulez's compositional processes is extraordinarily deep and thorough." -F. Goosen of Choice, July/August 91
