Thank God, I say, and not for the first time, for Sir Simon. Leaving Home is a good series, and it's Rattle who makes it so. He chose the contents, he wrote it and he conducts the music in it.

Why "Leaving Home"? The story of twentieth-century music is one of leave-takings in many ways

Why "Leaving Home"? The story of twentieth-century music is one of leave-takings in many ways. Many had to literally leave home, displaced by political upheavals. A remarkable diversity of expression developed - not all of the difficult or discordant variety commonly associated with modern music.

This film, written and directed by Sir Simon Rattle, examines the effect of fundamental political upheaval on the music of Bela Bartok, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Witold Lutoslawski. The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is featured. Rattle explicates some of the musical aspects of each piece and is seen conducting long passages from each of the works, as well as passages from such other works as Bartók's 'Bluebeard's Castle (with Anne-Sofie von Otter and Willard White) and Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony.

The story of music in this century is one of leave-takings. Accompanying the television series of the same name, Leaving Home looks at the central preoccupations of composers in this century and their relationship to the other arts

Hardcover published 1996-09-19 in United Kingdom by Faber Film. The story of music in this century is one of leave-takings. Traditional relationships with tonality, rhythm, form and sound have been left behind or radically reinterpreted. Accompanying the television series of the same name, Leaving Home looks at the central preoccupations of composers in this century and their relationship to the other arts. Michael Hall examines how the impact of their sounds and ideas can be seen finally to have the most acute and elemental resonance with this century of turmoil and diversity.

Music's confrontation with modernity has been difficult, and has often involved the artist leaving his country for political and social reasons. In the company of a range of performers,this work reflects the difficulties encountered and the audiences' often reluctant attitude towards them.
