Fifties


Capricious witticisms

Oct 18 2013

Open any book on music history at the year 1950 and you will read about young, daring composers and performers and boundless experimentation. However, the post-war years had more to offer than, for instance, the modernism of Bruno Maderna.

This is made apparent by the capricious witticisms of André Jolivet’s Rhapsodie à sept or by the septets of Igor Stravinsky and Kees van Baaren, in which twelve-tone serialism enters into a fresh alliance with neoclassical forms. The fifties were also the source of inspiration for Michael Daugherty’s Dead Elvis, a hip-jerking requiem for the ‘King of Rock ‘n Roll’.
