Förlagstext om boken:

Available in French only
This book explores the deep connection between Chagall and music. The omnipresence of music, which ran deep in both his family history and the Jewish culture of his native city, was particularly meaningful in his creation of scenery and costumes for the stage. His works for the Jewish Theatre (Moscow, 1919-1920) and the ballets Aleko (Mexico, 1942), The Firebird (New York, 1945), Daphnis et Chloé (1958) et The Magic Flute (New York, 1967) celebrate the links he established between music, large-scale set design (décors) and material technique (costumes). Chagall’s monumental projects in the 1960s, such as the ceiling of the Paris Opera (1964) and his decorative and architectural programme for the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center in New York (1966), are a reflection of his notion of “total art”, and his explorations in the universality of music and its representation in the architectural dimension.

Music was a constant source of inspiration to Chagall, the subject of his creations, providing internal rhythm and strength of composition, and the measure for the intensity and ranges of colour he used. Unexpected and offering a resolutely fresh approach to iconography, music in Chagall’s work is the mark of incessant and brilliant modernity.

Book prepared under the direction of Bruno Gaudichon (head curator of La Piscine Museum, Roubaix), Ambre Gauthier (art historian) and Éric de Visscher (director of the Museum of Music, Paris).
