Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Music's inclusivity--its potential to unite cultures, disciplines, and individuals--defined the life and career of Lou Harrison (1917-2003). Beyond studying with leading composers of the avant-garde such as Henry Cowell and Arnold Schoenberg, conducting Charles Ives's Pulitzer Prize-winning Third Symphony, and staging high-profile percussion concerts with John Cage, Harrison has achieved fame for his distinctive blending of cultures--from the Chinese opera, Indonesian gamelan, and the music of Native Americans to modernist dissonant counterpoint. Miller and Lieberman also pull readers into Harrison's rich world of cross-fertilization through an exploration of his outspoken stance on pacifism, gay rights, ecology, and respect for minorities--all of which directly impacted his musical works. Though Harrison was sometimes accused by contemporaries of "cultural appropriation," Miller and Lieberman's brisk study makes it clear why he is now lauded as an imaginative pioneer for his integration of Asian and Western musics, as well as for his work in the development of the percussion ensemble, his use of found and invented instruments, and his explorations of alternative tuning systems. Harrison's compositions are examined in detail through reference to an accompanying CD of representative recordings. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Lou Harrison, who celebrated his eightieth birthday in 1997, has often been cited as one of America's most original and influential composers. In addition to his prolific musical output, Harrison is also a skilled painter, calligrapher, essayist, critic, poet, and instrument-builder. During his long and varied career, he has explored dance, Asian music, tuning systems, and universal languages, and has actively championed political causes ranging from pacifism to gay rights. This book, based on extensive research and nearly seventy interviews, examines the ideas that have shaped Harrison's creative output, as seen through the eyes of the composer and his associates. A seventy-minute compact disc included with the book illustrates in sound various aspects of the written text; most pieces are recorded here for the first time.

Review: "In Lou Harrison, Leta E. Miller and Frederic Liberman provide a loving, but not uncritical, introduction to the man and his music. As authors, they are excellent teachers: their explanation of different systems of tuning is the cleverest I've read."--Times Literary Supplement, 8 December 2006 "Lou Harrison is published under an academic imprint, but the authors adopt a user-friendly approach, aiming to connect with non-specialists. They ... offer informative commentary and a thoughfully compiled CD in order "to introduce readers to Harrison's world through the lens of repreesntative compositions". -- The Wire Feb 2007
