This title was first published in 2001. Ever since its completion in the 14th century, Dante's great epic poem Divina Commedia has been adapted in a variety of musical forms by composers across the world. Drawing on primary research in sources and recordings and on interviews with contemporary composers, the author provides this introductory survey to the types of musical adaptation that the Commedia has attracted, including symphonies, chamber pieces, operas and ballets.
