Notes & Reviews:

Betsy Jolas' father, poet and journalist Eugene Jolas, founded and edited the magazine Transition, which featured the greatest names of literature, painting, and music - notably James Joyce, whose entire Finnegans Wake came out in serial form under the title " work in progress." Thanks to her family background, Betsy Jolas was initiated at an early age to words and the recitation of words, and it was through her enthusiasm for the human voice that she was later able to temper her participation in the post-Webernian adventure of the immediate after-war. Thus, although she followed the fortunes of Pierre Boulez's Domaine Musical in the '60s, she was more a "fellow traveler" of serialism than an unconditional disciple. An avid contemporary music enthusiast, Geraldine Dutroncy's encounter with Betsy Jolas in 2007 gave birth to a series of concerts devoted to her piano work.
