Barraque, Jean - Au Delà Du Hasard (1959) Au Delà Du Hasard (1959)
Classical Audiophile - LP AS 50 Astree
1981 Laminated Gatefold Original In Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “Barraque Was One Of The First Serialists With A Unique Style That Combined A Rich Impressionism And Extremely Formal Pointillism. His Beautiful "Sonate Pour Piano" (1950-1952) (Recorded By Claude Helffer On Astre AS 36, Out Of Print Disc) Was Praised By Jazz Critic Andre Hodeir In An Early Book; This Praise And Barraque's Use Of Jazz Instrumentalists (Playing His Serial Music) Sitting Together With Classic Ensembles Led To Barraque Being Stigmatized Socially -- This Was The Late '50s After All. "...Au Dela Du Hasard," Like "Chant Apres Chant" (1966) For Six Percussionists, Voice, And Piano, Was Inspired By Hermann Broch's Poem The Death Of Virgil, Not Merely Setting The Text, But Reflecting Upon It. The Titles Of The Movements Give Some Idea Of This Impulse: "The Night Without Rays," "Unable To Evolve Or Regress," "Which Ephemeral Signs?," "Abusive Exaggerations," "In The Wandering Multitude," "For The Unknown Edge Of Chance," "Before The Quotation," "Blinded By The Dream (Quotation)," "Beyond The Direct Line Of Sight," And "On A Thought Without Night."
