Prophets Outside their Own Country

Arciuli.jpgI have in my possession a handsome book titled Musica per Pianoforte negli Stati Uniti – Piano Music of the United States – by pianist Emanuele Arciuli (EDT). It’s in Italian, but I can read that there are sections on postminimalism and totalism in which I am quoted heavily. I see Daniel Lentz mentioned, and John Luther Adams, Eve Beglarian, Janice Giteck, William Duckworth, Harold Budd, Jerry Hunt, Jonathan Kramer, Ingram Marshall, Mary Jane Leach, Elodie Lauten, Peter Garland, David First, Jerome Kitzke, and other names that formed the daily currency of my Village Voice years. I’m glad at least the Italians get to read about this music.

    (Nit: you misspelled “negli” in the title. I selected your text and Googled the result and came up empty until I made this correction.)
    What was the source of Arciuli’s quotes from you? Your Voice articles, or this blog, or some other source?
    KG replies: Thanks for catching the typo. I can’t completely translate it, but I think mainly my American Music in the 20th Century book.
