Gunther Schuller, a composer, conductor, author and teacher who coined the term Third Stream to describe music that drew .

Gunther Schuller, a composer, conductor, author and teacher who coined the term Third Stream to describe music that drew on the forms and resources of both classical and jazz, and who was its most important composer, died on Sunday in Boston. He was 89. The cause was complications of leukemia, said his personal assistant, Jennique Horrigan. Some of his arguments found their way into a compilation of his essays, Musings: The Musical Worlds of Gunther Schuller (1986), and his 1997 book, The Compleat Conductor. But if Mr. Schuller learned composition on his own, he approached it with a solid grounding in musical basics.

"Scholar, composer, conductor, teacher, author, music publisher, indefatigable advocate--Gunther Schuller isn't merely a musician; he's a monopoly." So wrote Alan Rich of New York Magazine in 1978, and his description still holds. Musings is a marvelous introduction to Schuller and his extraordinary range of musical experience, taste, and learning. The book is devided into four sections offering a rich sampling of Schuller's musical interests. In Part I, "Jazz and the Third Stream," Schuller gives us his definitions of jazz as well as insightful pieces on such figures as Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins, and Cecil Taylor. Part II, "Music Performance and Contemporary Music," includes pieces on conducting, the future of opera, the question of a new classicism, and the works of Monteverdi and Stravinsky, Part III shows us "Schuller the Composer" with such pieces as "Shapes and Designs," "Composing for Orchestra," and "In Praise of Winds," as well as Schuller's own thought about his controversial opera The Visitation. The final section, "Music Esthetics and Education," finds Schuller reflecting on such matters as form, structure, and symbol in music, and the need for broadening the audience for quality music. From the scholarly to the popular and the polemical, Musings will delight Schuller's admirers and win new converts.About the Authors:Gunther Schuller is the author of Early Jazz which Nat Hentoff proclaimed a "remarkable breakthrough in musical analysis of jazz." In addition to composing and conducting, Schuller has been President of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.
