Pierre Henry, ou, L'art des sons ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and Multiple languages and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the fifties, Pierre Henry provoked a scandal by inventing musique concrète with Pierre Schaeffer. Music was no longer written with notes on a score for instrumentalists but was based on sounds and noises from our environment, collected, edited and transformed by machines. A radical innovator, he composes several 'hits' that mark their times. Today, young musicians from all over the world, and strangely enough, electronic buff DJs claim to be followers of his fabulous work in fashioning sound. In Pierre Henry the art of sounds, we follow him as he brandishes his boom on which two microphones are mounted in search of in the Coulée Verte, in Paris. As the journey unfolds we are brought forty years back to Bordeaux where people are leaving the 'Concert Couchè' ('lying down concert') with reactions from the audience ..."--Éditeur
David Oistrakh, Yehudi Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovich Bach, Mozart, Brahms by David Oistrakh( Visual )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nulle star du violon n'est une île - bien que certains virtuoses semblent vouloir affirmer le contraire -, et pourtant l'esprit de collaboration de David Oïstrakh était certainement unique. Il est donc tout à fait approprié de le voir ici savourer la compagnie d'autres grands musiciens. Plusieurs paradoxes sont en jeu ici, tenant avant tout à cet esprit affable et généreux, tout simplement grand de naissance. D'une part, il était comme le dit un de ses collègues, "un virtuose qui se moquait de la virtuosité" ; de l'autre, même s'il disait à son fils Igor qu'il n'existait pas de violoniste "numéro un", mais plusieurs "numéros un", ses pairs étaient prompts à le placer sur un piédestal, en tant qu'homme et en tant que musicien. Une saine constance caractérise les trois interprétations réunies ici, qui s'étendent sur sept années ; mais l'intensité personnelle avec laquelle il répond à chacun des ses trois collègues varie subtilement."--Brochure
