Xenakis Synaphai Aroura Antikhthon

{PARAGRAPH}The works of Takemitsu and Cage are discussed as though the composers are still alive and active, and an opportunity to place these pieces in E Smoove Down The Drain broader historical Messengers Incorporated Soulful Proclamation is lost. Yet it is good to have these pieces in the CD catalogue, especially Henze's song cycle Voices, with its 22 settings of authors ranging from Xenakis Synaphai Aroura Antikhthon Heine to Ho Chi Minh; the songs may be uneven, but the best of them are as fine as anything Henze has composed, and this performance, conducted by the composer, has never been bettered. Iannis Xenakis. Formalized Music: Thought and Mathematics in Composition Portal:Classical music. Categories : Compositions by Iannis Xenakis compositions Contemporary classical compositions Compositions for piano and orchestra Piano concertos. Certain characteristics apply to all these works, including the use of textural variety as a significant structural element; explosive, Xenakis Synaphai Aroura Antikhthon frenetic energy; a dense and dissonant harmonic language that rarely allows a suggestion of tonality; orchestration that heavily relies on extended instrumental techniques; and mind-boggling rhythmic complexity. The overall effect can at any given moment sound chaotic, but each piece has a logic that makes it a coherently satisfying, visceral experience. The virtuosity it calls for involves agitated, athletic pounces from one end of the keyboard to another, and articulating the independence of a number of simultaneous gestures. Aroura, the classical Greek word for earth, is for an orchestra of strings, and consists largely of primal groans and bellowings created by glissandi, tremolos, and heaving clusters of pitches. The minute Antikthon, a Pythagorean word meaning anti-earth, is scored for full orchestra, and was written for George Balanchine and the New York City Ballet. Recognizably melodic fragments occasionally punctuate its turbulence and violent sonic eruptions, and it's the most diverse, colorful, and expansive score on the CD. The performances are appropriately savage, but the playing is never just wild and sloppy; Xenakis is a composer whose writing is clear enough that bad entrances and poor ensemble playing are easily noticeable.

  5. The title means "connexities," and Xenakis makes use of this notion by trying to get the pianist to play in as smooth a manner as possible, to sound, in other words, like a wind or string instrument. He complicates the business by giving the player as many as ten lines to play at once. Xenakis: Synaphai; Aroura; Antikhthon. Elgar Howarth.
