MUSIC; Conlon Nancarrow, On A Roll - New York Times After decades of struggle and neglect, conlon nancarrow is finally being recognized as one of the major American composers of the 20th century. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE3DF143DF936A15753C1A96194826
Extractions: Since the early 1980s, ask any musician whom they associate with compositions for the pianola or player-piano, and Conlon Nancarrow's name will top the list. This is not the main specialist website for Nancarrow and his music , and there are links at the foot of this page which will take you to a number of alternative sources. However, you will find here a clear perspective on the technical aspects of Nancarrow's studies, and the way they compare with the techniques of music written for other types of player-piano. You will also find a rather fond memory of a man devoid of pretention, gently but also sharply humorous, sometimes almost childlike, and with a deep musical intelligence and seriousness of purpose. Biography Although there was a player-piano in the family home in Texarkana, Nancarrow's decision to use such instruments for composition came mainly from reading a book by Henry Cowell, New Musical Resources , which suggested experimenting with player-pianos for music too rhythmically complex for human beings to play by hand. Visiting New York in 1947, he obtained a secondhand Ampico upright, and also a hand perforating machine, copied from one (probably a Leabarjan) owned by J. Lawrence Cook. The names of Leabarjan and Cook are familiar to player-piano enthusiasts around the world. Leabarjan and similar perforating machines are occasionally still to be found, while the memory of

Rite of Spring, and soon turned his interests from performance to composition, studying with Nicolas Slonimsky, Walter Piston, and Roger Sessions. During this time, Nancarrow worked briefly as a conductor through the federal Works Progress Administration, but found he did not have the temperament for the position. "I had the musical knowledge, and I guess even my technique was alright, but I was too easygoing. In order to be a good conductor, you have to be a bit of a tyrant," he told the New York Times. Nancarrow continued to work for the WPA as a composer for the theater. He maintained his political interests in Boston as well, joining the Communist Party there and arranging a musical program for the organization. Nancarrow picked up the trumpet again in 1936, playing with a dance band on a cruise ship bound for Europe. He returned to Europe the following year to serve as a soldier in the fight against General Franco in the Spanish Civil War. Upon his return to the United States he was refused a passport and, fearing further problems with the government due to his political activity, he moved to Mexico City. Nancarrow had married in 1932, but his wife divorced him while he was serving in Spain. He remarried in 1947, but divorced again four years later. He became a Mexican citizen in 1956.

Extractions: an ARTSJOURNAL ArtsJournal Home AJ Blog Central Main In my book on Conlon Nancarrow I analyzed 65 of his works, which was everything known to me at the time. However, like Schubert, Conlon goes on producing music posthumously, and recently Ive been getting information on three pieces I didnt include. First, pianist Helena Bugallo, who has been performing his player piano works in piano duo arrangements, has just completed her doctoral dissertation at SUNY Buffalo, entitled Selected Studies for Player Piano by Conlon Nancarrow: Sources, Working Methods, and Compositional Studies . (Its available from the ever-helpful UMI Dissertation Services .) She lists two works Id never heard of, called Didactic Studies and For Ligeti , with dates 1980 and 1988 respectively, but neglects to mention what medium theyre written for. [2/14 UPDATE: They're for player piano. I'll be writing more extensively to give all the details soon.] These may have come from about 60 unnamed (and unnumbered) player piano rolls that Conlon had left in his studio as unfinished or abandoned works or sketches. Bugallo did her research in the Nancarrow archive at the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, whence all of Nancarrows materials were moved before he died. I knew that a group of odd little piano pieces (for live player) had been found, but they were written clearly in Conlons 1940s style, and cant have been the Didactic Studies referred to if the latter truly came from 1980.
