9.30 Illegal Harmonies (90’00)

Written & presented by Andrew Ford

(1 of 10) What’s Modern?

The American composer, John Cage, said there are legal harmonies, the ones in the text books, and illegal harmonies, which is everything else. For Cage this meant listening to passing traffic, road drills, air conditioning and anything else he could lay his ears on. But the truth is the whole history of music has depended on illegal harmonies, composers tearing up those text books and breaking the rules. This was never more true than in the 20th Century.

Music by Arnold Schoenberg, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Erik Satie, Claude Debussy, Percy Grainger and Charles Ives.
