About this item
Giacomo Puccini is one of the most frequently performed and best loved of all operatic composers. In Il Trittico, Turandot, and Puccini's Late Style, Andrew Davis takes on the subject of Puccini's last two works to better understand how the composer creates meaning through the juxtaposition of the conventional and the unfamiliarsituating Puccini in past operatic traditions and modern European musical theater. Davis asserts that hearing Puccinis late works within the context of la solita forma allows listeners to interpret the composers expressive strategies. He examines Puccinis compositional language, with insightful analyses of melody, orchestration, harmony, voice-leading, and rhythm and meter.
