The scandal over modern music has not died down. While paintings by Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock sell for a hundred million dollars or more, shocking musical works from Stravinsky's Rite of Spring onward still send ripples of unease through audiences. At the same time, the influence of modern music can be felt everywhere. Avant-garde sounds populate the soundtracks of Hollywood thrillers. Minimalist music has had a huge effect on rock, pop, and dance music from the Velvet Underground onward. Alex Ross, the brilliant music critic for The New Yorker, shines a bright light on this secret world, and shows how it has pervaded every corner of twentieth century life. The Rest Is Noise takes the reader inside the labyrinth of modern sound. It tells of maverick personalities who have resisted the cult of the classical past, struggled against the indifference of a wide public, and defied the will of dictators. Whether they have charmed audiences with the purest beauty or battered them with the purest noise, composers have always been exuberantly of the present, defying the stereotype of classical music as a dying art. Ross, in this sweeping and dramatic narrative, takes us from Vienna before the First World War to Paris in the twenties, from Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia to downtown New York in the sixties and seventies. We follow the rise of mass culture and mass politics, of dramatic new technologies, of hot and cold wars, of experiments, revolutions, riots, and friendships forged and broken. In the tradition of Simon Schama's The Embarrassment of Riches and Louis Menand's The Metaphysical Club, the end result is not so much a history of twentieth-century music as a history of the twentieth century through its music.

(Schott). Carl Orff devoted much of his life to music for children. His pioneering work continues under the guidance of teachers and educators in many countries. The five basic German volumes of "Music for Children" by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman were published between 1950 and 1954. The considerable growth of Orff-Schulwerk in the United States led to the publication of the American Edition (1977) to satisfy the requirements of a different educational system and national heritage. Music for Children is a stimulating source of material for music teaching. Contents of this third volume: The instrumentation and range of keys are increased. The settings include the chords on the fourth and fifth notes of the major scale. The Dominant Triad: If all the world were paper * Bass parts for timpani * For recorder and timpani * The riddling knight * Ten short pieces for dancing * Carillon de Vendome * The old woman and her pig * A good-night * Morning * Other Keys: Deux chansons de jeu: Sur le pont d'Avignon * En revenant de Versailles * No John, No * Beauty's spell * Riddles * The Sudominant Triad: Street song * Pieces for xylophone * The man in the moon * Malbrough * Dance-song * Festive procession * Lord Thomas of Winesbury * Dashing away with the smoothing-iron * Sevenths and Ninths: This old man * Fior di viola * La Violette * Rundadinella * Sacred yodelling song * Mater et filia * Polka from the Ennstal * Two polkas * English dances: Rufy Tufty * Rakes of mallow * Hunt the squirrel * Up tails all * The phoenis * Time-change dances * Two dances for singing and playing: Dance-song * Hector Protector

(Schott). Presented in score format, these percussion parts are to be used in performing the two pianos and percussion version of Carmina Burana. Five percussion players are required for performance. Carmina Burana, first performed in 1937, is based on an important collection of thirteenth-century poems found in the monastery of Benediktbeuren. Carl Orff made selections from this collection and in robust and delicate musical colors painted a manifold picture of life. "Everything I have written up to now, and which you have unfortunately printed, you can shred into pulp. My collected works begin with 'Carmina Burana'." Carl Orff wrote to his publisher after the premiere. And so it was that his work caused a sensation in the whole world and continues to delight people of all cultures.
