Ce texte n’est pas disponible en français.

It is a common misconception that it is difficult or impossible to discuss music, that a piece of music simply speaks to the listener — or not. Paul Steenhuisen, in conversation with composers, offers readers insight into the creative process, and ways of listening and entering into works of new music. Steenhuisen, himself a composer of merit, talks one on one with 32 of his contemporaries — 26 of whom are Canadian — with a colleague’s candour, sympathy, and expertise. These rare intimations afford fellow composers, musicologists, students, and inquisitive listeners a comparative look into the lives of the people who write some of the most innovative, challenging, and sublime music today.
