This is the first book in English on Mauricio Kagel, and the first in any language to consider his entire output (up to the time of writing). Reviews: Werner Klueppelholz, _Neue Zeitschrift fuer Musik_: 'For the first time the whole Kagel, from the Argentinian beginnings to 2004... very readable book... In his own words, Kagel is trying to write music "which encourages thinking and has to complemented by thinking". Heile's monograph completely fulfils this demand. It is as useful for looking up factual information as for reflection on a composer who, like no other, brings ideas to sensory perception. That is the best that can be said about a Kagel book.' Christopher Fox, _Musical Times_: 'masterly guide to Kagel's music'
