Pierre Boulez: Pli Selon Pli (1983)

Pierre Boulez - Pli Selon Pli (1983)
Classical | EAC (APE, CUE & NO LOG) | 260 MB

Pierre Boulez's masterpiece, Pli selon pli, is a portrait of Mallarmé, whose Surrealist approach is aptly mirrored by Boulez's post-serialist musical language. The verse is a succession of vivid, picturesque, even sinister images unfolding cheek-by-jowl and making no linear sense — it's a series of non sequiturs, inviting you to contemplate the poetic images both alone and in juxtaposition with each other. This verse can engage listeners on a highly personal level, because no two encounters with its imagery are likely to yield anything close to the same reaction. Boulez's natural mode of expression could hardly be more distant from functional, essentially predictable harmony, so his music lends itself to Mallarmé's poetic cognitive dissonance—particularly given the composer's keen sense of color and proclivity for ejaculatory solos, duets and (for lack of a better word) instrumental collisions.
Without further ado, allow me to resurrect what has been out of circulation for nearly two decades. To this day, it remains downright puzzling but still profoundly beautiful.

Nel 1927 Paul Valéry, nominato Accademico di Francia, inviò una breve nota autobiografica che in ultimo decise di non utilizzare. Di fronte all’uditorio, tenne invece un elogio del suo predecessore alla carica, Anatole France, riuscendo a criticarlo senza mai pronunciarne il nome. Una polemica correva infatti tra Valéry e France, da quando quest’ultimo aveva rifiutato di pubblicare alcune poesie di Mallarmé, amico e idolo di Valéry. Questo e altri retroscena vengono narrati da Walter Benjamin nell’introduzione. Dall’amore per il mare, alle prime poesie, ai saggi giovanili, sino al suo capolavoro, Monsieur Teste, nei tre scritti qui presentati emerge un ritratto folgorante e inaspettato di quello che fu definito per antonomasia il poeta “puro”.

A student of Massenet and Fauré, winner of the Prix de Rome in 1900 and friend to Ravel and Satie, Florent Schmitt had a style that blended influences and inspiration from wherever the spirit took him. His incidental music for Antony and Cleopatra originally formed ballet scenes between the acts, evoking and enhancing Shakespeare’s saga of rivalry between the Roman Empire and Egypt, and the tragic consequences of star-crossed love. Schmitt’s The Haunted Palace follows the nuances of Mallarmé’s translation from Edgar Allan Poe in lush orchestration and a sound-scape of enigmatic symbolist imagery.

Scénario du film Passion, Godard constructs a lyrical study of the cinematic and creative process by deconstructing the story of his 1982 film Passion. “I didn’t want to write the script,” he states, “I wanted to see it.” Positioning himself in a video editing suite in front of a white film screen that evokes for him the “famous blank page of Mallarmé,” Godard uses video as a sketchbook with which to reconceive the film. The result is a philosophical, often humorous rumination on the desire and labor that inform the conceptual and image making process of the cinema.
