  •  Nono Was an Italian Composer (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    From Answer.com:

    "Luigi Nono achieved prominence after World War II as an uncompromising modernist seeking to revolutionize music in Europe. Along with fellow Italians Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, Nono attended the influential Darmstadt Summer Courses and became associated with other young modernists such as Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen. In many ways, Nono was the most radical of them all, choosing to combine a keen political engagement with a musical orientation that mixes austere beauty with fierce intensity."

    He was anything but a dinosaur. He was "radical."
    Why demean the name of poor dead Nono? Maybe you people are anti-Italian? Well. That's sad.

    Vote for Gipper. Or else.

    The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
