    Léo Ferré. Artiste de vie by Thierry Rollet

    Présenter Léo Ferré permet de redécouvrir l’un des plus grands personnages de la chanson et de la poésie françaises. C’est du moins ce que comprendra aisément le grand public. Les aficionados et surtout les héritiers de Léo sauront en plus qu’il s’agit de redécouvrir un apôtre inconditionnel de la musique. Ferré était un musicien dans l’âme, même s’il a surtout chanté. Mais c’est la musique qui a porté son œuvre multiforme, qu’elle soit poétique ou littéraire. ____________________________________ « Notre langage, à nous autres artistes, est à la portée de toutes les oreilles et de tous les yeux, parce qu’il est chant, lumière, galbe, sourire. » - Léo Ferré, la mauvaise Graine

    114 Songs (First Edition) by Ives, Charles E

    Redding, CT: Charles Ives, 1922. First Edition. First Edition. Second issue, in publisher's blue cloth with titles and rule in gilt on the front board and spine, and with pages 37-39 printed, and no dust jacket as issued. Fine condition. A collection of avant-garde short pieces in every imaginable format (marches, violin sonatas, group sing-a-longs, etc.) written by Ives using the poetry of Walt Whitman, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Wordsworth, Keats, James Fenimore Cooper, and others as lyrics. Notable as much for musical content as for the long essay by Ives at the rear regarding his typically involved conceptual intentions for this particular gathering of compositions. An eccentric publication by one of our greatest and certainly most eccentric twentieth century composers.

    50 Songs (First Edition) by Ives, Charles

    Redding, CT: C.E. Ives, 1922. First Edition. First Edition. A self-published volume of songs by Charles Ives, selected from a volume published earlier the same year, titled "114 Songs." Like "114 Songs," this was printed for distribution among the composer's friends, and judging from the small number of copies in world libraries (OCLC locates 12 libraries with copies, whereas 106 are listed with copies of "114 Songs"), it must surely have had a much smaller printing. A selection of "folk songs" by Ives, many dedicated to the work of literary greats of the generation that preceded him (Shelley, Wordsworth, Goethe, Longfellow). Characteristically, simple melody lines are played against a complex and sometimes argumentative accompaniment. Very Good in tan paper-covered boards, with a brown quarter-binding, moderately worn at the corners, brief spotting to the front board, and a touch of wear to the paper spine label, firm and clean overall. Contemporary owner name in fountain pen at the top right corner of the front board and the front endpaper.
