The Triumph of Music

Tim Blanning’s new book has attracted a good deal of review attention. Amongst the most interesting:
(i) a joint interview with Blanning and Ian Bostridge in Standpoint
(ii) Simon Heffer in the Telegraph – very critical of the book, particularly its apparent neglect of 20th century English music, and its ‘navel-gazing expatiations’ on John Coltrane or Eric Clapton.
(iii) James Penrose in The New Criterion
(iv) further reviews in the Guardian and Independent
