9:30 Illegal Harmonies

Ten programmes written & presented by Andrew Ford

(6) The Zero Hour

The German critic, Theodor Adorno, famously warned against poetry after Auschwitz. For young composers in the early 1950s it was time to start again, to rethink musical syntax from the ground up, to embrace the mathematical logic of serialism wholeheartedly and to shake off the trappings of neo-classicism. But even as the barricades went up and Pierre Boulez pronounced Schoenberg dead, musical revolutions of another sort were occurring in the United States. 1955 may have been the year of Le marteau sans maître, but it was also the year of Rock Around the Clock.

Music by Igor Stravinsky, Hans Werner Henze, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage, Edgard Varèse, Leonard Bernstein, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and the voice of Elvis Presley (ABC Classic FM)
