Nature et Musique (French Edition) by Emmanuel Reibel

By Emmanuel Reibel

Son essence mystérieuse semble faire de los angeles musique le langage même de l. a. nature. Rêvant de pouvoir agir sur elle à los angeles façon d’Orphée, les compositeurs ne cessent de l’écouter pour intérioriser ses voix : ils s’emploient journey à travel à l’imiter, à reproduire ses mouvements, à peindre ses effets sur los angeles sensibilité, à enregistrer et métamorphoser ses sons, ou à puiser en elle de puissants modèles formels.
Des Quatre Saisons (Vivaldi) à La Mer (Debussy), de l. a. Symphonie pastorale (Beethoven) au Catalogue d’oiseaux (Messiaen) et à l’écologie sonore, Emmanuel Reibel met ici en lumière los angeles façon dont les représentations musicales de l. a. nature se sont articulées à l’histoire de l’idée de nature.
En traversant les saisons, les paysages et les jardins, parfois troublés par des tempêtes, nous découvrons ainsi remark los angeles musique se nourrit de tout ce qui constitue notre environnement – minéraux, végétaux, ou animaux, qui ont donné lieu à un foisonnant bestiaire musical – sans oublier les préoccupations les plus actuelles liées à l. a. préservation de cette nature qui nous est chère. 


 Emmanuel Reibel, maître de conférences à l’université de Nanterre et membre de l’Institut universitaire de France, est l’auteur de Les musiciens romantiques, Fascinations parisiennes ; Faust, los angeles musique au défi du mythe et Comment l. a. musique est devenue romantique.
