Vagn Holmboe (1909-1996), was one of the most important composers of his era, and the most important Danish composer after Carl Nielsen. In a book intended for the general reader, he discusses the nature of music, from the point of view of the composer, the performer and the listener. This is the first appearance in English of these important essays, originally published in Danish, under the title 'Music: the Inexplicable'. To the translation of this book several other essays have been added: Holmboe also writes on Stravinsky's 'Symphony of Psalms', 'Haydn and Tradition', on Nielsen, and his own early career, and on human responsibility and artistic freedom.
