French Music Since Berlioz explores key developments in French classical music during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This volume draws on the expertise of a range of French music scholars who provide their own perspectives on particular aspects of the subject. D?dre Donnellon's introduction discusses important issues and debates in French classical music of the period, highlights key figures and institutions, and provides a context for the chapters that follow. The first two of these are concerned with opera in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries respectively, addressed by Thomas Cooper for the nineteenth century and Richard Langham Smith for the twentieth. Timothy Jones's chapter follows, which assesses the French contribution to those most Germanic of genres, nineteenth-century chamber music and symphonies. The quintessentially French tradition of the nineteenth-century salon is the subject of James Ross's chapter, while the more sacred setting of Paris's most musically significant churches and the contribution of their organists is the focus of Nigel Simeone's essay. The transition from the nineteenth to the twentieth century is explored by Roy Howat through a detailed look at four leading figures of this time: Faur?Chabrier, Debussy and Ravel. Robert Orledge follows with a later group of composers, Satie & Les Six, and examines the role of the media in promoting French music. The 1930s, and in particular the composers associated with Jeune France, are discussed by Deborah Mawer, while Caroline Potter investigates Parisian musical life during the Second World War. The book closes with two chapters that bring us to the present day. Peter O'Hagan surveys the enormous contribution to French music of Pierre Boulez, and Caroline Potter examines trends since 1945. Aimed at teachers and students of French music history, as well as performers and the inquisitive concert- and opera-goer, French Music Since Berlioz is an essential companion for an

Six French Poets of Our Time

A Critical and Historical Study

During the last sixty to seventy years avant-garde poetry in France has evolved in two directions: one toward poetry conceived as a means to an end, the other toward poetry as an end in itself. Focusing on Pierre Reverdy, Francis Ponge, René Char, André du Bouchet, Jacques Dupin, and Marcelin Pleynet as the modern French poets who most faithfully reflect these directions, Robert Greene's chronological study allows us to follow the two-pronged evolution of French poetry since 1910. Situating his argument in a detailed historical context and basing it on comparisons with artistic movements and the poets' own writings on art, and on extended analyses of selected representative poems, the author is able to establish a new intellectual-historical perspective on contemporary poetry. Professor Greene finds that whereas Reverdy, Char, du Bouchet, and Dupin all embrace a conception of poetry as quest, as a search for the absolute, as the Way of beauty or truth, Ponge and Pleynet hold to a view of poetry as jête, as a celebration of the relative, as the play and display of language in action. What knits them together, he concludes, is the way in which each poet sums up his era as a stage in the development of twentieth-century French poetry. Originally published in 1979.

"Ce recueil, publié en 1934 puis 1945, témoigne de la proximité de Char avec le mouvement surréaliste, auquel il n'a appartenu que quelques années, par amitié pour Eluard. Cependant il n'a pas adhéré à la doctrine surréaliste, et n'en a pas utilisé la méthode d'écriture automatique. A la fois une proximité et un passage.

Collaborative form attempts to show the nature and limits of works of art that are made up of two or more artistic forms. The first task of this book is to analyze and interpret a set of combinations. Each chapter treats one collaborative work and attempts to show that the principles of collaboration are the same, whether the components are poetry and graphic works as in Lettera Ambrosa by Rene Char and Georges Braque, poetry and music as in Herzgewachse by Maurice Maeterlinck and Arnold Schoenberg, or more complex sets that include painting, music, dance, lighting, and drama as in Der gelbe Klang by Wassily Kandinsky, Morder, Hoffnung der Frauen by Oskar Kokoschka, and Triad by Alwin Nikolais.

Boulez and Mallarmé

a study in poetic influence


Author: Mary Breatnach

Publisher: Scolar Pr

Mallarme died in 1898, but his centrality to the aesthetic thinking of the twentieth century is firmly established. Of this there exists no more striking affirmation than the association of his name with that of Boulez, a musician renowned for his commitment to the new. In the late 1950s, at a crucial point in his development, the composer chose the poet as his guide. In this study, Mary Breatnach looks at a fascinating irony in Boulez's choice. Mallarme's work is shown to be a special kind of 'music', set against the art of sounds with which we are familiar, in part a result of his avowed intention to take back from that art an allusiveness and structural complexity which, he believed, belonged to poetry. The central chapter focuses on Pli selon pli, Boulez's 'portrait of Mallarme'. Arguing that the originality and significance of the piece are inseparable from the poetry and, more particularly, from the literary thinking which inspired it, Dr. Breatnach shows that knowledge of that background serves as a heuristic aid to an understanding of the very nature of the music. The book concludes by defining the special place occupied by Pli selon pli in musical and aesthetic history.
