Lavishly illustrated with photographic and musical examples, this book provides the first comprehensive evaluation of Koechlin's life and works. As well as concentrating on major symphonic works like Koechlin's jungle Book cycle, it also discusses his attraction to the early sound film and themusic inspired by such stars as Lilian Harvey, Marlene Dietrich and Charlie Chaplin in the 1930s.
Koechlin's career provides a fascinating study of the triumph of integrity and independence over almost overwhelming odds and his rich and varied output offers a veritable treasure-trove for performers, scholars and enthusiasts alike.
In 1942, Wilfred Mellers classed Koechlin ''among the select number of contemporary composers who really matter'', yet it is only in teh 1980s that Koechlin began to achieve the recognition he deserves as a composer of breadth, vision andpowerful originality: a pioneer of polytonality and a master orchestrator who was greatly admired by contemporaries such as Faure, Debus

'It isn't often that one can say of a book about music-as one can of Charles Koechlin: His Life and Works-that it is necessary, admirably executed, and will be of lasting value. His book is a model of what a study of a little-known composer, published by an academic press, ought to be.'.
–Wilfred Mellers of The Times Literary Supplement
