I’ve been inspired by the creators of The Taruskin Challenge.
They’re reading and blogging about Richard Taruskin’s 3,856-page The Oxford History of Western Music. There are lots of interesting discussions happening there. I highly recommend you check it out!
I have a number of books on my shelf that I’ve been meaning to read or meaning to read again. The books are about theory, or composing or about the arts in general.
Now I have incentive to read them: to share with readers! Starting next month, I’m going to read them and post summaries, discussions and my own personal reflections.
First up: Igor Stravinsky’s Poetics of Music
