Conlon Nancarrow, Irene de Groot (1987)

The exhibition incorporates Nancarrow’s original papers and reproductions as well as works by other artists that accompanied him, personally or remotely, in his work. Parts of his quirky and innovative composing techniques and instrumental devices, developed in the early 1950s, have been rescued and restored after more than sixty years.
This is just one among a number of contemporary gestures – such as recovering “lost” tapes, tuning a piano, writing and re-writing letters – which act as narrative joints to the missing links in Nancarrow’s story.
