Notes & Reviews:

Anthony Burgess, celebrated author of A Clockwork Orange so memorably filmed by Stanley Kubrick, once said that "I wish people would think of me as a musician who writes novels, instead of a novelist who writes music on the side". Thwarted in his desire for a professional musical career he later turned to writing but retained a fascination with the interrelation of music and literature. Composing in a vigorous, tonal style - a hybrid of Holst and Hindemith - Burgess evokes the Elizabethan era in his inventive, imaginative Mr W.S. and moves toward 12-tone in Mr Burgess's Almanack.
