Extractions: Reluctant Celebrity by Kyle Gann Hardly anyone knew of Nancarrow's music until he was 65. There had been a little bit of attention. Aaron Copland had reviewed his Prelude and Blues for piano in New Music in 1938. Elliott Carter published an article about Nancarrow's Player-Piano Study No. 1 in 1955. And around 1960, the composer sent John Edwards, librarian at the New York Public Library, a tape of his music, which Edwards gave to John Cage, who gave it to his partner the dancer Merce Cunningham, who choreographed several of the studies for player piano. That exposure led to a short-lived Columbia recording in 1969. This slim list just about exhausts Nancarrow's public career in the first 65 years of his life. The dramatic turnaround came between 1977 and 1983: Peter Garland started publishing Nancarrow's scores in his

Z Conlon Nancarrow Biography Conlon Nancarrow (October 27, 1912 - August 10, 1997) was an American composer who took Mexican citizenship in 1955. He is remembered almost exclusively for the pieces he wrote for the player piano. He lived most of his life in complete obscurity, not becoming widely known until the 1980s. Today, he is remembered as one of the most original and unusual composers of the 20th century. Nancarrow was born in Texarkana, Arkansas. He played trumpet in a jazz band in his youth, before studying music first in Cincinnati, Ohio and later in Boston, Massachusetts with Roger Sessions, Walter Piston and Nicolas Slonimsky. Later still, he went to New York City and studied with Henry Cowell, another great iconoclast. Nancarrow had a machine custom built to enable him to punch the piano rolls by hand. The machine was an adaptation of one used in the commercial production of rolls, and using it was very hard work, and very slow. He also adapted the player pianos, increasing their dynamic range by tinkering with their mechanism, and covering the hammers with leather or metal so as to produce a more percussive sound.

Nancarrow's isolation was such that he was not recognised widely until the 1980s, when Gyorgy Ligeti described him as "the best of any composer living today" and the MacArthur Foundation of Chicago gave him a "genius" award of $300,000. Nancarrow was born in Texarkana, Arkansas in 1912. He studied at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and a performance of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, at a time when he had heard very little contemporary music, made an enormous impact. Because of this he cited Stravinsky and Bach as his favourite composers in an interview in 1980.

Extractions: Conlon Nancarrow has been hailed as one of the most important American composers of the 20th century. His work has been performed by an impressive array of contemporary musicians ( Ursula Oppens , the Arditti and Kronos Quartets among them), his name invoked in scholarly texts. In addition to the lucrative commissions he received before his death in 1997, he was one of the first recipients of the MacArthur "genius grants" in the early 1980’s. And yet it was not always this way. For most of his long life, Nancarrow was all but completely unknown by the musical establishment. Indeed, few artists of any discipline have experienced such a dramatic reversal in the trajectory of their careers. Even so, he is still practically invisible to the general public his name not resonating like those of renowned fellow American composers like Philip Glass John Cage , or even Charles Ives That such obscurity has dogged Nancarrow can be attributed in no small part to the composer's music itself unprecedented constructions of multiple meters and tempos that are extremely difficult or even impossible for musicians to play. Rather than compromise his exploration of the limits of rhythmic complexity, Nancarrow, beginning in the late 1940's and continuing for 35 years, chose to "compose" exclusively for that jukebox of a bygone era, the player piano heartland , but lived most of his life in Mexico, where (after having fought against fascism in Spain with the famous
