Notes & Reviews:

In the 'Fantasia Contrappuntistica,' his magnum opus, Busoni brought together the many sides of his creative personality-scholarship, craftsmanship, occult visions, irrational abstraction-in an experimental idiom aimed at realizing both his intellectual aspirations and his near-mystical musical visions. His point of departure was Bach, though he did not advocate the "back to Bach" veneration of, say, Reger, or seek devotedly a magister in absentia. For him, rather, Bach was the focus of the Western musical canon, and he saw in 'The Art of Fugue,' especially, a spiritual bequest to posterity-and to himself. Commissioned and premiered by Carlo Grante, Roman Vlad's 'Opus Triplex' is a triptych based on the Bach motif, and the result of lengthy, deep analysis of the many potentialities of that particular melogram, which Vlad uses as a building block to create sonic complexes, in light of his own dodecaphonic experience both as a composer and as a scholar of the music of the 20th century.
