Sample text

During the 1970s his left-wing politics led him to write for ensembles. Two pieces, De Volharding (Perseverance, 1972) and Hoketus (1975-77), blurred the distinction between “high” and “low” culture, its searing rhythmic drive. With De Staat (1973-76) he began a series of pieces for large ensemble. De Materic (Matter, 1985-88) – an exploration of the relationship between spirit and matter in four interdependent non-narrative woks. He also produced pieces such as Trilogie Van de Laatste Dog (Trilogy of the Last Day, 1998).

His final piece Elegy for Brahms, written in the same year and given a posthumous premiere in 1918. Hugo Wolf. 1860-1903 Born in Slovenia, Hugo Wolf was taught by his father until 1875, when he entered the Vienna Conservatory, where one of his contempories was Gustav Mahler. He was a fractious student, and in 1877 – the year he contracted the syphilis that was to kill him – he was expelled from the conservatory. For the next decade he made his money chiefly from teaching, but in 1884 his songs aroused the interest of the greatly influential critic Edvard Hanslick, who recommended Wolf to two publishers, neither of whom was prepared to back the young composer.

Born 23rd November 1876, in Cadiz, Andalusia, Spain. In 1888 after learning the piano and music theory, makes his public piano debut. Enrols at the Madrid Conservatory of music in 1896 and begins to study composition. In 1905 he wins a competition at the Real Academy de Bellas Artes for his opera, La Vida Brave (‘The Short Life’). Moves to Paris in 1907. The first production in 1913 of La Vida Brave, in Nice brings him fame. Premiere in 1915 of his ballet El Amor brujo in Madrid confirms his status as the new star of Spanish music.
