The Radical Romantic - John Weinzweig

Top of page

For fifty years John Weinzweig has fought on all fronts for the cause of new music. Throughout, he has maintained the dry and often acerbic wit that sustains his music. The Radical Romantic, while being an intimate portrait of a composer, is the universal story of a visionary's struggle against a conformist world. It is also an entertaining inside view of the compositional process and serves to demystify the unfamiliar sound of new music.
