Music as Dream free pdf Music as Dream: Essays on Giacinto Scelsi showcases recent scholarly criticism on the music and philosophy of the brilliantly original composer Giacinto Scelsi. In this collection, music scholars Franco Sciannameo and Alessandra Carlotta Pellegrini select and translate into English for the first time essays that reflect the evolution of recent scholarship on Scelsi's oevre since his death in 1988. Music As Dream opens with the event known as "The Scelsi Case," which erupted shortly after the Scelsi's death in 1988, when composer Vieri Tosatti claimed paternity for his works. This quarrel reached its apogee in the pages of Piano Time's March 1989 issue, musicologist Guido Zaccagnini questioned a group of noted composers, writers and arts managers on whether a composer can claim sole authorship for a work accomplished in collaboration with others. In the essays that follow, French musicologist Michelle Biget-Mainfroy, a specialist in "gestural" piano writing, offers an in-depth look at Scelsi's complex piano output- Gianmario Borio looks at Scelsi's "Sound as Compositional Process"- Alessandra Montali examines and details Scelsi's theoretical and literary writings- Luciano Martinis and Franco Sciannameo explore the lives and whereabouts of obscure composers Giacinto Sallustio, Walther Klein, and Richard Falk--Scelsi's collaborators until the early 1940s when Vieri Tosatti took sole charge- Alessandra Carlotta Pellegrini elaborates on Scelsi's most important composition of his first period, propounding a tour-de-force of genetic criticism that pieces together the complex story of this composition through research at the newly organized Scelsi Archive at the Fondazione Isabella Scelsi in Rome- Friedrich Jaecker and Sandro Marrocu each also offer essays drawing on research conducted at the archive of Fondazione- and finally, an updated Bibliography and Discography edited by Alessandra Carlotta Pellegrini and Simone Caputo respectively, conclude the volume.
