  11. Linda Jo Scott column: Silence, repetition can say so much in musicRead the original story

    Thursday Aug 21 | Battle Creek Enquirer

    Callas. In order to be appreciated, however, both pauses and repetitions obviously have to be part of a melody. I disagree with people who actually praise John Cage's "4 Minutes and 33 Seconds," which he created back in 1952. There has been a performance, which you can see on YouTube, by a full symphony supposedly playing this work. They are really doing nothing at all, for the whole work is totally silent. After that orchestra ends the work exactly 4 minutes and 33 seconds later, the audience amazingly claps loudly and stands up to congratulate the composer, Cage, the conductor and the symphony. Apparently this work was debuted outdoors the Boston Symphony Orchestra's famed Tanglewood so there were probably more interesting sounds there than in the symphony hall. Even so, many music lovers did not like the work, and it affected Cage's reputation negatively. As one man put it so well, "It has to be the worst piece of music I have never heard.?" All of this business of silence and repetition may seem like an obvious aspect of music, but composers like Bach, Beethoven and Schubert knew instinctively how to use those techniques to create true masterpieces.
