內容簡介

低限音樂大師菲利普‧葛拉斯傳奇般的音樂人生回憶錄

「這是一本最令讀者期待的回憶錄,紀錄作品產量驚人及最受歡迎的當代作曲家菲利普‧葛拉斯的精湛人生。」─《紐約時報》


世界知名交響樂、歌劇及電影配樂作曲家菲利普‧葛拉斯主宰了20世紀音樂界。在他的個人回憶錄中,以最貼近他人生的敘述手法,紀錄他精彩的音樂人生,而他又是如何達到創作的最高境界,將人生與藝術融合。菲利普‧葛拉斯早年曾拜法國經典傳奇音樂人娜迪亞‧布朗熱(Nadia Boulanger)為師,更成功打造享譽世界的知名歌劇《沙灘上的愛因斯坦》(Einstein on the Beach)及《Satyagraha》。葛拉斯在成為偉大的音樂作曲家前,也曾在伯力恆鋼鐵公司當過一般的上班族,70年代甚至在紐約當過計程車司機。他也回憶曾與許多知名藝術家及音樂人合作的種種過往,包括美國詩人艾倫‧金斯堡(Allen Ginsberg)、拉維‧香卡(Ravi Shankar)、國際知名戲劇導演和舞台設計師勞勃‧威爾森(Robert Wilson)、英國女作家多麗絲•萊辛(Doris Lessing)及電影導演馬丁•史柯西斯(Martin Scorsese)等。也因為葛拉斯在音樂上的偉大成就,徹底改變許多人的世界,導演馬丁•史柯西斯就是其一。他提到葛拉斯的音樂充滿律動、色彩及神秘感,尤其是與他合作電影《達賴的一生》(Kundun)配樂時,深深感受到他的音樂創作已經超越一切,宛如讓他走進平靜的禪世界中。這本回憶錄讀者可以感受到葛拉斯生動的寫作方式,如同他的音樂一樣能深深打動你的心,喜愛葛拉斯或是傳記作品的讀者絕對不能錯過。

The long-awaited memoir by 'the most prolific and popular of all contemporary composers' (New York Times)

Rapturous in its ability to depict the creative process, Words Without Music allows readers to experience that sublime moment of creative fusion when life merges with art. Biography lovers will be inspired by the story of a precocious Baltimore boy, the son of a music-shop owner, who entered college at age fifteen, before traveling to Paris to study under the legendary Nadia Boulanger; Glass devotees will be fascinated by the stories behind Einstein on the Beach and Satyagraha, among so many other works.

Whether recalling his experiences working at Bethlehem Steel, traveling in India, driving a cab in 1970s New York, or his professional collaborations with the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Ravi Shankar, Robert Wilson, Doris Lessing, and Martin Scorsese, Words Without Music affirms the power of music to change the world.

Martin Scorsese on Words Without Music:
'I came to Philip Glass's music very simply, without any critical prodding or guidance. I listened and I was transfixed. The music was dynamic and colorful and mysterious all at once, and it put me in mind of the Zen exercise of sitting before a blank wall and contemplating the question, "What is this?" It's music that seems to go beyond music. It doesn't just stay with you, it infuses and energizes and haunts you, and carries a sense of being alive, a perception of existence itself, the rhythm of living this life. Philip's music has come to mean more and more to me as the years have gone by.
I was excited to work with Philip on Kundun, and he exceeded my wildest expectations by giving us a score that was genuinely transcendent. He's exceeded my expectations again with this rich and beautifully written memoir. Who knew that he was as good a writer as he is a composer?'
