9781580464857: Claude Vivier: A Composer's Life (Eastman Studies in Music)

Claude Vivier's haunting and expressive music has captivated audiences around the world. But the French-Canadian composer is remembered also because of the dramatic circumstances of his death: he was found murdered in his Paris apartment at the age of thirty-four. Given unrestricted access to Vivier's archives and interviews with Vivier's family, teachers, friends, and colleagues, musicologist and biographer Bob Gilmore tells here the full story of Vivier's fascinating life, from his abandonment as a child in a Montreal orphanage to his posthumous acclaim as one of the leading composers of his generation.
Expelled from a religious school at seventeen for "lack of maturity," Vivier gave up his ambition to join the priesthood to study composition. Between 1976 and 1983 Vivier wrote the works on which his reputation rests, including Lonely Child, Bouchara, and the operas Kopernikus and Marco Polo. He was also an outspoken presence in the Montreal arts world and gay scene. Vivier left Quebec for Paris in 1982 to work on a new opera, the composition of which was interrupted by his murder. On his desk was the manuscript of his last work, uncannily entitled "Do You Believe in the Immortality of the Soul." Vivier's is a tragic but life-affirming story, intimately connected to his passionate music.

About the Author :

Bob Gilmore was a noted musicologist and performer who taught at Brunel University in London. He wrote or edited five previous books, including Harry Partch: A Biography.

Review :

A labour of love on [Gilmore's] part, more than ten years in the writing, and making much use of interviews with friends and colleagues. Interweaves biography and discussion of the music in a single narrative, which is clear and very readable. --BBC Music Magazine

The Quebec composer Claude Vivier made some of the most haunting and personal musical statements of any composer of the later twentieth century, and in recent years his music has been entering the canon of twentieth-century concert music. . . . Gilmore deftly describes [the biographical] contexts and then reaps maximum literary mileage from an analysis of the ways Vivier was both in and out of phase with his environment. An astounding late work by one of the most sensitivecommentators on the music of the second half of the twentieth century. --Music and Letters

Gilmore moves gracefully between the gay scene in Paris or Montreal and the scores on the composer's desk (as Vivier himself did) to create a deeply engaged and engaging portrait. *TLS Books of the Year. --The Times Literary Supplement
