Wegman, Rob C.


"One of Rob C. Wegman's central concerns in this book, the first full length study of Jacob Obrecht and his music to appear for a quarter of a century, is imaginatively to recreate the composer's world, to recover, from the sometimes pitiful scraps of historical information that is known, what it meant to be a musician living and working in some of the major urban centres of Northern Europe in the closing decades of the fifteenth century....the impressive scale on which music was cultivated in the main cities of the Low Countries during the fifteenth century--both new music and the performance of existing repertory--comes through very powerfully from Wegman's ingenious contertextualizations of Obrecht's life. This is one of the most successful aspects of the book..."Wegman, Rob C. is the author of 'Born for the Muses The Life and Masses of Jacob Obrecht' with ISBN 9780198166504 and ISBN 0198166508.
