Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred Schnittke was a Russian and Soviet composer. Schnittke's early music shows the strong influence of Dmitri Shostakovich. He developed a polystylistic technique in works such as the epic First Symphony and First Concerto Grosso. In the 1980s, Schnittke's music began to become more widely known abroad with the publication of his Second and Third String Quartets and the String Trio; the ballet Peer Gynt; the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Symphonies; and the Viola and 1st Cello Concertos. As his health deteriorated, Schnittke's music started to abandon much of the extroversion of his polystylism and retreated into a more withdrawn, bleak style.Schnittke's father, Harry Viktorovich Schnittke, was Jewish and born in Frankfurtshow more
