No violin concertos. No symphonies. No sonatas, duos, or string quartets.

That's the wonderful thing about Varèse's music.

He reshaped musical form to fit his needs and designs.

Octandre and Hyperprism are small masterpieces in form.

Noise is important. He was the Frenchman in New York.

Oh. And I still think that Carter's Cello Sonata is the best thing he ever wrote.
