"[Tippett's] importance lies not only in his revitalizing contribution to the genres of symphony, concerto, opera, string quartet and sonata, but also in his awareness – displayed in his writings as well as his compositional practice – of the complexities of the modern condition and the artist’s role in relation to this."
