Summary This title explores the varied aesthetic impulses and ever-evolving personal motivations of Russian composer Arthur Lourié. A St Petersburg native allied with the Futurist movement and profoundly sympathetic to Silver Age decadence, Lourié was swept away by the Revolution; he surfaced as a Communist commissar of music before landing in Europe and America, where his career foundered. Making his way by serving others, he became Stravinsky's right-hand man
