Stravinsky the Music-Maker is the third incarnation of a book that has been greeted with superlatives on each previous appearance. Hans Keller and Milein Cosman collaborated down the decades of their married life, Keller’s pen analysing music, Cosman’s catching its makers at work. Stravinsky was a source of fascination for them both, and their Stravinsky at Rehearsal appeared in 1962, to be expanded, two decades later, as Stravinsky Seen and Heard. Stravinsky the Music- Maker offers the most generous compilation of their work yet: it includes Keller’s complete articles on Stravinsky, written between 1948 and 1983, and augments Cosman’s celebrated prints and drawings with a number not previously published. The introduction, by the composer Hugh Wood, sites the Keller-Cosman partnership in the framework of the British musical life they enriched. This special evening will be introduced by Martin Anderson, the editor and publisher of Stravinsky the Music-Maker. The composer Hugh Wood will talk about the Keller-Cosman partnership, the musicologist Christopher Wintle will outline the ongoing project to publish all of Hans Keller’s major writings, and the formal part of the evening will end with Milein Cosman in conversation.
