Edgard Varese, the pioneering composer of electronic music, formed the subject of a major exhibition in Basel in 2006; it displayed many previously unknown documents from the composer's estate, including manuscripts, letters, and other material. This volume contains detailed commentaries on all the items on display, as well as thirty-two essays by leading authors from Europe and America. Varese's life and music are discussed under the following headings: Influences - Points of Orientation; Conductor and Initiator in New York; Probing Uncharted Territory; Impact and Reception. Many previously unknown documents from the composer's estate, recently acquired by the Paul Sacher Foundation, form the basis of a nuanced picture of Varese's life, musical thought, and compositional output. The book is lavishly illustrated with facsimiles of manuscripts, letters, and other documents from the composer's collection, as well as reproductions of paintings, drawings and sculpture documenting Varese's close ties to the visual arts. Contributors: JONATHAN W. Bernard, Gianmario Borio, Diane Bouchard, Austin Clarkson, Hermann Danuser, Michel Duchesneau, Sabine Feisst, Kyle Gann, Fritz Gerber, Theo Hirsbrunner, Anne Jostkleigrewe, Matthias Kassel, Sylvia Kahan, Klaus Kropfinger, Ernst Lichtenhahn, Malcolm Macdonald, Guido Magnaguagno, Olivia Mattis, Ulrich Mosch, Helga De La Motte-Haber, Felix Meyer, Dieter Nanz, Robert Piencikowski, Wolfgang Rathert, David Schiff, Anne C. Shreffler, Heinz Stahlhut, Jurg Stenzl, Denise Von Glahn, Chou Wen-Chung, and Heidy Zimmermann. It is published in cooperation with the Paul Sacher Foundation.


What...should be emphasized is the enormous contribution this volume makes to our understanding of a composer increasingly recognized as central to the timbral, technological, and aesthetic developments of twentieth-century music. MUSIC & LETTERSThis book will likely impel readers to immerse themselves in the forceful, pioneering music of Varese. Recommended. CHOICEThis large and handsomely-designed volume...encapsulates a mass of fresh information, letters and tributes from Varese associates all the way from Debussy...to Boulez and Frank Zappa. No-one interested in this composer, or indeed the 20th century modernist adventure as a whole, should be without it. BBC MUSIC (Bayan Northcott)Lavishly illustrated...this publication becomes, at once, the first port of call for information about the composer and his music. There are discoveries everywhere.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x8675d918) THE last word on Varese 2015/6/19

Dr. Felix Meyer of the Paul Sacher archive has, along with a great collection of scholars, produced this beautiful book documenting all the items in the archive. This alone would be worth the price of the volume. Along with that we are treated to essays and commentary on the man and his music. This is a visually beautiful volume as well with hundreds of photographs depicting people, music, letters, etcetera., even other composers scores with Varese's conductor markings. Until some lost Varese work surfaces (unlikely) this will remain the last word in Varese scholarship. Indispensable!

Varese always had an overflow state, he had more conceptual frames,more ideas on timbre, sound, its form and structure,projection, tension in linear arrays/lines than he knew what to do with, he fairly much pioneered, ushered in the utilization of electronic sound in music,he had the courage to introduce all this at times when pratically no one was really interested in musical academia, it was more corporate science entities who supported his ideas as the Phillips Pavilion in Brussles World's Fair circa 1958, for his "Poeme Electronique", the first musique concrete piece that had any influence and later Bell Labs and electronic music producers gave bucks in support; Varese's life implied one of questions, although he was a really down-to-earth guy, early acting as Rodin's assistant, meeting Debussy and Stravinsky,much of the music from the earliest of times is now lost.He also crossed paths with Duchamp,Breton,Rivera,and Trotsky I believe,also begging nagging questions on what is music?,(there was a time when this was a hot topic) what is noise?, what is form? what is aesthetics?, how does the industrialized city impact on how one writes music, Varese also had incredible influence on many composers,Cage,Harrison,Zappa, Boulez, Stockhausen Shapey, Xenakis, not to mention the hundreds of electronic and percussion composers,also rockers; you never hear about and never will within the neo-liberal order.

We are indeed fortunate that The Sacher Foundation provided the funds to produce this glossy, tomb of a book,discounting the price, to make it within reach of poor stuggling composers and musicians;all with wonderful essay contributions(some quite glib) from hard-core academia,Schreffler,Wen Chung; Schiff, Bernard,to maverick journalists,Gann, to unmentionable writers to tried, true and tested ones as well. There is also wonderful graphic,pieces never completed, sketches, work drafts, tables, combines,shibboleths,notes,scribblings,restaurant writings;all items from the Archive reproduced herein,((although the paper is turning(has already) turned brown on some)) you will never see anywheres else, and you learn of his interesting commonplace way of working, editing by simply taping things together with black encumbered electrical tape, or utilizing lumbered eroding pieces of corroding cardboard, and cabbage-condition accounting paper, whatever was at hand. Who knows how Varese supported himself, he was able to hear all his works during his lifetime thanks to conductors as Ralph Shapey when they both lived in New York City, later Boulez educated the great unwashed on the mysteries in his music, music like the imploding tension of a suspension bridge. Great Read. . .

You cannot find a more beautiful and all-encompassing book on Edgard Varese than this one. One doesn't exist! Bursting with detailed essays, anecdotes, pictures, scores, interviews, and etc. It's a show-stopper of a tome, a coffeetable piece worthy of a museum exhibit. I only know of one other book that's like this one: "Vertical Thoughts", covering Morton Feldman. It's another magnificent giant picture-&-essay book that encapsulates one of the 20th century's greatest avant-garde composers. If only Stravinsky, Ligeti, Takemitsu, Reich, and many more deserving composers could get this kind of treatment!
