Notes & Reviews:
"Modernity is 600 years old," said Kagel; at the heart of his conception of tradition is what Baudelaire called correspondence, or the illumination of the past by the present and vice-versa. Kagel's development was Promethean, only comparable to that of someone like Stravinsky. One of the reasons for this is his lifelong heightened sensitivity to repetition. We understand Kagel in the same way we understand a foreign language we do not speak fluently. We may know a certain word, but one of its multiple meanings will remain hidden.
