Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The memoirs of the Russian-born German composer Georg von Alberecht (born Kasan 1891, died Heidelberg 1976) are an important document of 20th-century musical history. Dictated to his son Michael von Albrecht and first published in German, von Albrecht's autobiography recounts his dramatic experiences during the 1917 Russian revolution and the Nazi terror. His reports of encounters with such other composers as Taneyev, Glazunov, Scriabin, Stravinsky, Hindemith, Frommel, David, and others, and his thorough discussion of tonal systems and compositional methods, reflect the approach and critical response to many procedures typical of the 20th-century music. His analyses shed light on the works of other composers and the development of modern and postmodern compositional strategies.

Translated by Michael von Albrecht and Francis R. Schwartz, and edited by Elliott Antokoletz, these memoirs offer the English-speaking reader a first-hand account of some of the most dynamic political, social, and musical developments in 20th-century Europe.
