Four Days of Luigi Nono in Boston Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

Even in contemporary music circles, Luigi Nono remains a peripheral presence. Rectifying that was the aim of “Utopian Listening,” a fruitful conference held from Wednesday to Saturday at the Granoff Music Center at Tufts University here, with cosponsorship from Harvard.

On one level, Nono’s near invisibility is strange. His compositions are hardly more challenging than those of his contemporaries, avant-gardists such as Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen. At times he was just as innovative, particularly in his embrace of electronic and spatial techniques, starting in the mid-1970s and lasting until his death in 1990. And he had international notoriety on his side: The 1961 premiere of his strident opera “Intolleranza 1960” in Venice was halted by neo-Fascist protesters wielding stink bombs and “shrieking unprintable names,” as this newspaper delicately put it.

Stockhausen’s Klang Reviewed

Religion as art, art as religion: This is the dual ethos of the modern encyclopedic museum, preserving objects of devotion in a secular age. It could also be the motto of the composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, the creator of grandiose spectacles of sublimity and kitsch, whose works fed his deeply idiosyncratic spiritual practice and vice versa.

So it was a perfect match of music and place on Saturday morning at the Cloisters, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s medieval outpost in Upper Manhattan, when the sound of the organ in Stockhausen’s “Himmelfahrt” (“Ascension”) filled an airy 12th-century chapel, punctuating periods of velvety richness with gusts of discordance and cleansing pings of a bell.
