Schoenberg and his school : the contemporary stage of the language of music by René Leibowitz( Book )

53 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Schoenberg and His School, Ren#65533; Leibowitz performs a threefold task. He relates the music of Schoenberg and his followers to the age-old tradition of Western polyphony, of which, he says, it is but the latest product. He discusses, with numerous musical examples, all known major works of Schoenberg and of his two great disciples Alban Berg and Anton Webern. And, in the final section of the book, he considers what the tradition represented by these three men could bring to the future, if carried still further by the young composers of today. Contents: Prolegomena to Contemporary Music; Arnold Schoenberg: The Origins and Foundations of Contemporary Music; Alban Berg: The Awareness of the Past in Contemporary Music; Anton Webern: The Awareness of the Future in Contemporary Music; The Structure of Contemporary Musical Speech

Introduction à la musique de douze sons : les variations pour orchestre op. 31 d'Arnold Schoenberg by René Leibowitz( Book )

30 editions published between 1949 and 1997 in French and Undetermined and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chef d'orchestre - il a enregistré, entre autres, les neuf symphonies de Beethoven - et compositeur - citons son "Concerto pour orchestre" et ses deux opéras : "Les Espagnols à Venise et Circulaire de minuit" - René Leibowitz (1913-1972) compte aussi comme un important théoricien, grâce surtout à cette "Introduction à la musique de douze sons". A la fin de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, dans le temps où le dedécaphonisme de Schoenberg reste méconnu ou semble une tentative avortée. René Leibowitz commence à enseigner ce "langage musical nouveau" à un petit groupe de jeunes compositeurs (Boulez, Philippot, Le Roux, Martinet, Nigg). Il lui consacre la plupart des articles qu'il publie dans "Les temps modernes" dont il tient la rubrique musicale. Fondée sur l'étude des "Variations pour orchestre", op. 31, de Arnold Schoenberg, l'"Introduction à la musique de douze sons" constitue la première vaste synthèse, de cette technique dodécaphonique à partir de laquelle la composition musicale a connu une véritable mutation

Petrouchka = Petrushka ; Le sacre du printemps = The rite of spring by Igorʹ Stravinskiĭ( )

3 editions published in 1990 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für Serge Diaghilews Ballets Russes schrieb Strawinski einige Ballette über russisch-märchenhafte Stoffe. Der Feuervogel wurde 1910 zum ersten großen Erfolg Strawinskis. Die ursprünglich für 100-köpfiges Orchester gesetzte, impressionistisch gefärbte Partitur wurde 1919 noch für mittelgroßes Orchester uminstrumentiert, der man heute den Vorzug gibt. Sie ist auch auf der vorliegenden CD eingespielt. Auch den aufwendigen Orchestersatz des Balletts Petruschka von 1911 hat Strawinski 1947 umgearbeitet und vereinfacht. Die Bedeutung des Rhythmischen kommt bei beiden Werken in der geänderten Fassung viel deutlicher zur Geltung. Das kurze Scherzo à la russe ergänzt diese Aufnahme mit dem Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra unter Paavo Järvi, die in jeder Hinsicht "outstanding" (Gramophone 5/03) ist und einen hervorragenden Einblick in die Ballettmusiken Strawinskis gibt
