Format: Hardcover
this collection of seemingly provocative essays is not what you think it might or may have been, an extemporaneous excursion into the uses,and abuses of Brecht or the theatre of Piscator, or the Latin American film or novel. No there are actually essays on the Victorian dimensions of Sir Edward Elgar, and Henry Purcell, the recluse symphonist Robert Simpson, and a fascinating opera"Behold the Sun" by Aleaxander Goehre, on the Anabaptist movement in post Peasant War Reformation Germany.Mr. Norris proclaims an slight marked emphasis on British musical creativity.
However appearances of the Other,the Hungarian exile composer,now a German citizen Gyorgy Ligeti would be the last and final person I would ever/forever associate with the vigours of the political. Ligeti was more a liberal with anarchist leanings philosophically,as in his erosive/corrosive opera "Le Grande Macabre". I was quite disappointed for Mr. Norris has scoured the theoretical body politic quite profoundly well with a book on intellectuals and the Gulf War,a Derrida biography,and countless essays on the vigours and vagaries of postmodernity. This work for me had a powerful import of suggestion rather than affirmation. Mr. Norris should have engaged the more directly focused political composers the sight of his analysis as editor- instigator. Writings invitations should have made the work of Luigi Nono, or Hanns Eisler,Paul Dessau,Isang Yun, Hans Werner Henze, or Mikis Theodorakis or closer to British home the late Cornelius Cardew,or Alan Bush.
