LUIGI NONO, INTOLLERANZA
RADIO LIVE (30’)
Intolleranza, which, when premiered at the International Festival of Contemporary Music of La Biennale di Venezia in 1961 provoked fierce controversy and even physical violence, was for Luigi Nono an attempt to create a new genre of music theatre. The work includes both live and recorded music at the same time, while on the stage different events are superimposed on each other. According to the composer, it was “a simultaneous and successive stage composition”, a revolutionary dramaturgical experiment. The lecture considers the various components of the work and highlights the interpenetration of the “political” and artistic aspects, a central feature of Nono’s focus and, more generally, of the avant-garde in the sixties.
