Tavener: A Portrait

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Sir John Tavener has been a unique, controversial and ever-evolving figure on the contemporary music scene since the late sixties. Although his music was strongly influenced by the Eastern Orthodox Church for twenty years, he has recently started to move in a new direction. This e-book includes a representative cross-section of his music, including the world premiere of Prayer of the Heart, written for and sung by Björk, and part of his most popular work The Protecting Veil. The composer himself also speaks in detail for the first time about his new sources of inspiration, and reminisces about his early career, his passions, and his struggles with serious illness. Combined with a comprehensive essay, this portrait paints the definitive picture of one of the most charismatic and important composers working today. This portrait comes with 2½ hours of music by Tavener. Audio samples are contained in the text: just tap to listen while you read.
