Manifesti dei Musicisti Futuristi

by [Futurist Music] Pratella, Balilla

Condition: See description

Milan: Direzione del Movimento Futurista, [1911]. Single sheet folded once to make [4]pp. Soft horizontal fold to middle with a few tiny spots of loss to the rear, else a very good example of this early Futurist manifesto, the first on music.

The first musician to "surrender to the persuasion of promises and liberation", Pratella was courted early on by Marinetti to join his new movement that he hoped would breathe new life into Italian culture. Though not as nihilistic as Russolo's Art of Noises published three years later, he still makes what at the time, were revolutionary demands that musicians break from the traditional, proclaiming in a later manifesto that" the new order of disorder should be created by destroying the ancient schemes." Ref: Pontus Hulten. Futurism and Futurisms,525-7; 544-5.
