Part artistic study, part intimate memoir, this book illuminates the technique and repertory of American dancer Isadora Duncan (1877–1927) and her enduring legacy from the perspective of an artist and scholar who has reconstructed and performed her work for 35 years. Providing an overview of modern activities and trends in the teaching and performance of Duncan’s dance, the author describes her own work directing The Isadora Duncan Dance Ensemble, the company that sought to implement Duncan’s mission to create not a school of dance but “a school of life.”

This unique collaboration between a musicologist and two pianists – all experts in Russian music – takes a fresh look at the supercharged music and polarizing reception of the Russian composer Alexander Scriabin. From his Chopin-inspired miniatures to his genre-bending symphonies and avant-garde late works, Scriabin left a unique mark on music history. Scriabin’s death centennial in 2015 brought wider exposure and renewed attention to this pioneering composer. Music lovers who are curious about Scriabin have been torn between specialized academic studies and popular sources that glamorize his interests and activities, often at the expense of historical accuracy. This book bridges the divide between these two branches of literature, and brings a modern perspective to his music and legacy. Drawing on archival materials, primary sources in Russian, and recently published books and articles, Part One details the reception and performance history of Scriabin’s solo piano and orchestral music. High quality recordings are recommended for each piece. Part Two explores four topics in Scriabin’s reception: the myths generated by Scriabin’s biographers, his claims to synaesthesia or “color-hearing,” his revival in 1960s America as a proto-Flower Child, and the charges of anti-Russianness leveled against his music. Part Three investigates stylistic context and performance practice in the piano music, and considers the domains of sound, rhythm, and harmony. It offers interpretive strategies for deciphering Scriabin’s challenging scores at the keyboard. Students, scholars, and music enthusiasts will benefit from the historical insights offered in this interdisciplinary book. Armed with this knowledge, readers will be able to better appreciate the stylistic innovations and colorful imagination of this extraordinary composer.

Rudolf Nurejew galt als einer der größten Tänzer aller Zeiten. McCann begibt sich in seinem Roman auf die Spuren eines Künstlerlebens, das rätselhaft bleibt. Aus der Sicht der Wegbegleiter des Genies erzählt, entsteht ein schillerndes Kaleidoskop, das von Ost und West, Partyleben und Künstlereinsamkeit, Genialität, Trieb und Tod erzählt. Ein Leben wie ein Roman – ein wilder Tanz. «Das Buch ist so schwerelos wie ein Grand jeté seines Helden.» (Der Spiegel) «McCann ist ein Geschichtenerzähler, wie wir wirklich nur wenige haben.» (Elke Heidenreich) «Der sowjetische Tänzer Nurejew (1938–1993) setzt sich gleich bei seiner ersten Tournee 1961 in Paris von seiner Truppe ab und bleibt im Westen. Von nun an ist der Tatare ein internationaler Superstar. Rasant erzählt der irische Schriftsteller Colum McCann von den glorreichen und tragischen Lebensstationen im wüsten Leben eines Jahrhundertgenies. Im doppelten Sinn des Wortes wird die Lektüre zu einem schwindelerregenden Erlebnis.» (Focus) «Man muss rein gar nichts von Ballett verstehen, um den fast überirdischen Zauber auch beim Lesen zu spüren. Was daran liegt, dass der Autor ebenfalls ein Genie ist.» (Brigitte)
