Summary
Claude Vivier's haunting and expressive music has appealed powerfully to audiences around the world. But his name is memorable also because of the dramatic circumstances of his death: he was found murdered in Paris at the age of thirty-four. Based on unrestricted access to Vivier's archives and on interviews with his family, teachers, friends, and colleagues, this book is the first to tell his story, from his beginnings as an abandoned child in a Montreal orphanage to his posthumous acclaim as one of the leading composers of his generation
