Nadia and Lili Boulanger
Potter (music, Kingston U., UK) presents a study of composers Nadia (1887-1979) and Lili Boulanger (1893-1918) that considers their careers in connection to each other. She focuses on their musical achievements rather than their lives and discusses their early compositional development, entries in the Prix de Rome, issues of gender, their impact, and Nadia's reputation. She does not delve extensively into Nadia's life after her sister's death, but does examine her teaching career, methods, and content of her classes. Parts of some of the chapters have been previously published elsewhere. Catalogues of both composers' works are appended. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
