Following the success of On Music; Essays and Diversions Vol I Robin Holloway's collection of writings covers a wealth of new ground. Containing substantial studies on Wagner, Strauss and Britten, the collection includes a fascinating piece on Edward Elgar which will be of great interest in the 150th anniversary of his birth.  Shorter pieces cover individual composers and particular works as well as individuals and issues in musical life, as Holloway considers the Twentieth Century as a contradictory yet unified whole.   Gathered from a wealth of published and unpublished work, including the popular Spectator columns, Robin Holloway brings together some of his highly entertaining accounts of travelling around the world with his music; of travel in America and Europe, a kaleidescope of festivals and of life as Professor of Music at Cambridge University.

Review:

"[S]timulation, amusement and enlightenment for anyone who cares about how music is made, heard and understood." Reviewed by Geraint Lewis in Gramophone, 2008 Reissue of previous review, Classical Music. 20 December 2008. "As ever, Holloway's prose is rich, dense and stylistically idiosyncratic." Reviewed by Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine, 2008 "endlessly diverting and superbly readable. .. rare to find such combination of exuberance, clarity, erudition and humour. Holloway is incapable of writing a dull sentence... This volume is a model of lively, informed writing on all aspects of music, leaving most other practitioners' well and truly in the shade" - Classical Music

Robin Holloway is well-known as a versatile and lyrical composer, who has written many chamber, orchestral and vocal works.
