ARCANA VARESE PDF

In this work, a kind of a freely extended passacaglia, a basic note musical idea is subjected to all kinds of permutations and variations, eventually returning in an echo of its original shape just before a coda. The works repetetiveness, revealing certain obvious patterns, also allows the listeners to better appreciate the painstakingly chosen and constructed timbres. The orchestra required for Arcana is enormous: players on a greater number of instruments, including 40 different percussions that are a constant presence in the overall sound. The harmonic stasis of the piece and its emphasis on color -- it is a kind of visualized music -- do invite such analogies. In their efforts to describe the music vividness, writers have reached for extreme images.

On 9 October, he wrote to his wife: " The two Fanfares I dreamed—I was on a boat that was turning around and around—in the middle of the ocean—spinning around in great circles. In the distance I could see a lighthouse, a very high—and on the top an angel—and the angel was you—a trumpet in each hand. Alternating projections of different colors: red, green, yellow, blue—and you were playing Fanfare No. Then suddenly the sky became incandescent—blinding—you raised your left hand to your mouth and the Fanfare 2 blared.

And the boat kept turning and spinning—and the alternation of projections and incandescence became more frequent—intensified—and the fanfares more nervous—impatient…and then—merde—I woke up. But anyways they will be in Arcana". Yet, their presence is undeniable in the explosive opening of Arcana.

The title refers to the mysteries of alchemy. As an epigraph to the score was an excerpt from Paracelsus's Hermetic Astronomy : " Six stars are established. Besides these there is still another star, Imagination, Which gives birth to new stars, And a new heaven. Within these swarming motifs lies therefore an idea essential to the general cohesion.

The momentum is occasionally broken, interrupted or simply halted by long silences, but each element seems launched in the same direction, as if subservient to a vectorial force dictating the direction for all objects to follow, no matter their temporal differences or registers.

From this is born an irresistible music from start to finish, climaxing in the highest registers over an enigmatic percussion accompaniment. However, countless composers have dabbled with the science in search of the philosopher's stone or immersed themselves in mysterious tomes: Jean de Garlande in the Middle Ages, or the Pascal Colasse from Versailles. In Mantua, Monteverdi himself fell in love with the dangerous discipline whilst serving the Gonzague family.

The composer explained: " I hope to find a je-ne-sais-quoi, to make then a je-ne-sais-quoi, and then, if it pleases God, to explain a je-ne-sais-quoi ". Though ultimately unconcerned by this unlikely quest, Monteverdi's son on the other hand would later require the help of his father in getting out of the jails of the Inquisition, imprisoned for the possession of censored books.

He coined the term "organized sound" in reference to his own musical aesthetic. Although his complete surviving works only last about three hours, he has been recognised as an influence by several major composers of the late 20th century. His affection for his grandfather outshone anything he felt for his own parents. After being reclaimed by his parents in the late s, in young Edgard was forced to relocate with them to Turin, Italy, in part, to live amongst his paternal relatives, since his father was of Italian descent.
