By Pascal Quignard,Matthew Amos,Fredrik Rönnbäck

As a musician he geared up the foreign pageant of Baroque Opera and Theatre at Versailles within the early Nineteen Nineties, and therefore used to be instrumental within the rediscovery of a lot forgotten classical song. but in 1994 he all of sudden renounced all musical actions. The Hatred of Music is Quignard’s masterful exploration of the facility of tune and what background unearths concerning the hazards it poses.
 
From prehistoric chants to tough modern compositions, Quignard displays on song of every kind and eras. He attracts on immense cultural knowledge—the Bible, Greek mythology, early sleek heritage, glossy philosophy, the Holocaust, and more—to advance ten available treatises on song. In each one of those small masterpieces the writer exposes music’s power to govern, to mesmerize, to cultivate. particularly irritating is his scrutiny of the position tune performed within the focus camps of Nazi Germany. Quignard’s provocative booklet takes on specific relevance this present day, as we discover ourselves surrounded through track as by no means earlier than in history.
