Luigi Nono

Luigi Nono studied with Malipiero at the Venice Conservatory (1941-5) and with Maderna and Scherchen, both of whom orientated him towards 12-note serialism (he married Schönberg's daughter Nuria in 1955). His avant-garde partisanship was inseparable from a commitment to socialism, twin aspects of a revolt against bourgeois culture: hence his avoidance of normal concert genres in favour of opera and electronic music, his frequent recourse to political texts and his work in bringing music to factories. In contrast with many of his contemporaries, who will be remembered foremost for their early work, Nono (1924-1990) came to full bloom only at the end of his life.
