Subject:QotD: Alex Ross on Mahler and Schoenberg
Time:02:05 pm

Читаю "The Rest Is Noise" (Оксана, спасибо за наводку). Жёлтенькое порадовало.

Mahler found Schoenberg’s music mesmerizing and maddening in equal measure. “Why am I still writing symphonies,” he once exclaimed, “if that is supposed to be the music of the future!” After a rehearsal of Schoenberg’s First Chamber Symphony, Mahler asked the musicians to play a C-major triad. “Thank you,” he said, and walked out. Yet he made a show of applauding Schoenberg’s most controversial works, knowing how destructive the critics and claques of Vienna could be.

Но вообще конечно ощущение от книжки один в один "очень точно станцовано про архитектуру". Я слышал где-то процентов 40 упоминаемой музыки и хотя бы чуть-чуть понимаю текст. Как это должен читать человек, девственный в музыке вообще, я не понимаю. Написано тем не менее опять-таки хорошо и по делу.
