...can be heard on many of the group's recordings. In 1965 he formed the Philidor Trio with the soprano Elizabeth Humes and the harpsichordist Edward Smith; the group toured and recorded until 1980 when it was dissolved. A versatile and spirited player, Gruskin has done much to dispel long-held notions about the intractability of early woodwind instruments. He taught music history and early-music performance practice at the New England Conservatory of Music, the Hartt College of Music, and Queens College in New York. In 1978 he became artist-in-residence at...

...performance. He continued to sing until 1939 . Hackett made a number of records, including duets with Maria Barrientos and Rosa Ponselle; they document a secure technique and a certain elegance, though there is also a sense of routine about them. That sense is completely dispelled by the sweep and finesse of his style in a recording of a Metropolitan Opera broadcast of Gounod's Roméo et Juliette from 1935 . Bibliography L.F.

...as the “Album of the Century.” The 1978 follow-up Kaya (Island) provoked criticism that Marley was losing his edge, seemingly focused on love rather than revolution. The world-conquering tour that produced the Babylon by Bus live double album (also Island, 1978 ) dispelled doubts, although that album's sales were significantly lower than the three preceding studio projects. Survival in 1979 (Island) reasserted Marley's political commentary credentials, aptly demonstrated on “Zimbabwe,” which he performed during that country's independence...

...may be derived from idiosyncratic features of a composer's notation, and his book Serial Composition and Atonality has become a standard text. His most extensive work was on the music of Berg and revealed in great depth and detail the richness and subtlety of Berg's work, dispelling popular notions that Berg's music, in contrast with that of Schoenberg and Webern, is arbitrary in its use of 12-note and serial procedures. After studying the materials for the incomplete third act of Lulu , in 1963 , he published a series of articles which conclusively...
