BBC MUSIC MAGAZINEFascinating and persuasive blend of documentary and critical study. MUSICAL TIMES [Arnold Whittall] Essential reading. MUSIC AND LETTERS Engaging and thoughtful, offers new insights and enriches the reader's understanding of the influence of Balinese, Japanese, and Indian music on Britten's compositions. CHOICE
