Christian Wolff (1679-1754)
Wolff attempted to systematize Leibniz's philosophy, the product becoming the predominant philosophy in Germany during Kant's formative years. Kant began his career as a member of the Wolffian school, then broke decisively with it. Kant's attack on metaphysics in the Critique of Pure Reason was primarily directed against the so-called "Leibnizian-Wolffian" system. Later, Kant wasto fight off the inevitable Wolffian counter-attack, led by Eberhard Kant stated in the Preface to the second edition of the Critique that Wolff had precribed the correct method for metaphysics: "orderly establishment of principles, clear determination of concepts, insistence upon strictness of proof, and avoidance of venturesome, non-consecutive steps in our inferences" (Bxxxvii). But though methodologically sound, Wolff had neglected to prepare the ground for his demonstrations by undertaking a critique of the organ of metaphysics, pure reason. In particular, he treated sensibility as "nothing but a confused representation of things, containing only what belongs to them in themselves, but doing so under an aggregation of characters and partial representations that we do not consciously distinguish" (A43/B60). In treating the difference between sensibility and understanding as merely "logical," Wolff (along with Leibniz) "has given a completely wrong direction to all investigations into the nature and origin of our cognition" (A44/B61).
Wolffian Metaphysics
The Wolffian theory of reality is broadly divided into two parts: ontology, which treats of possible things, and metaphysics, which treats of actual things. Metaphysics itself has three special subjects: the universe, the soul, and God. The three corresponding branches of "special metaphysics" are cosmology, rational psychology, and rational theology. This distinction forms the basis of the division of Kant's "Dialectic" into Antinomy, Paralogisms, and Ideal of Pure Reason, respectively.

Sospeso presents the world premiere of Christian Wolff's homage to Elliott Carter a work written for Sospeso, on Friday, January 30, 2004 Sospeso also presented the world premiere of Mr. Wolff's Exercise 28 at the Lincoln Center Festival 2000 theremin concert with grand thereminist Lydia Kavina The French-born American musician came to prominence in the 1950s as an associate of John Cage , Morton Feldman, Earle Brown and the other American experimentalists of that period, later working with Cornelius Cardew and Frederic Rzewski . His work has gone through many transformations, including minimalism (the early 1950s), indeterminancy, open form and works connected with political issues. Born March 8, 1934 in Nice, France, Mr. Wolff has lived mainly in the U.S. since 1941; he became an American citizen in 1946. He studied piano with Grete Sultan and composition (briefly) with John Cage , but he describes himself as an autodidact. It was early contact with Cage, Morton Feldman, David Tudor and Earle Brown—and, later, Cornelius Cardew and Frederic Rzewski —that helped form the direction of his work. His academic training in classics and comparative literature at Harvard University lead him to professorships in classics at Harvard and, since 1971, at Dartmouth College, where he also teaches comparative literature and music.

15. Biography - Christian Wolff
Christian Wolff, back. Christian Wolff (born 1934 in Nice, France, livingin the United States since 1941) holds a doctorate in classics
Christian Wolff back Christian Wolff (born 1934 in Nice, France, living in the United States since 1941) holds a doctorate in classics from Harvard, where he taught until 1970. Between 1970 and 2000, Wolff was the Strauss Professor of Music at Dartmouth College where he also taught classics. As a composer he is basically self-taught, although his association in the early 1950s with John Cage, David Tudor and Morton Feldman provided a music background unmatched by any formal education. He has received a number of commissions, was "Ford Composer" at Mills College and was composer/lecturer at the Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik in Darmstadt. He has written for numerous music periodicals, and has organized and performed in concerts in Europe and the U.S.A.
Wolff's work has concerned itself principally with the introduction of various new modes notation and freedom of the musical event, both for the composer and performer as well as the listener. Wolff described his current concerns in the following manner: "To turn the making of music into a collaborative and transforming activity (performer into composer into listener into composer into performer, etc.), the cooperative character of the activity to the exact source of the music. To stir up, through the production of the music, a sense of social conditions in which we live and of how these might be changed."
In 1995 Petr Kotik commissioned Wolff to compose Spring, which was performed by The Orchestra of the S.E.M. Ensemble in New York and Europe. After a performance at Prague Spring 1999, where Kotik conducted a program featuring Gruppen by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Diamonds by Alvin Lucier (commissioned by SEM), and Modules I, II, III by Earle Brown, Kotik began creating a repertoire for three orchestras. In 2000, Wolff composed Ordinary Matter for an ensemble of 80 musicians, divided into three orchestras. Ordinary Matter was premiered at the Ostrava Days Festival in 2001 and a version with a reduced ensemble was performed last December by SEM at the Paula Cooper Gallery.

The works on this disc, volume 3 of Mode’s Christian Wolff Edition, belong to his minimalist, and open-form, styles. The Tilbury pieces (1969–70) are named for the pianist John Tilbury, whom Wolff had recently met at that time. Snowdrop (1970), from the same period, was named for the snowdrops among the earliest Spring flowers found in the Vermont countryside where Wolff lives. They attempt to integrate a systematic way of writing with chance and the excitement of early minimalism from Riley, Glass and Reich along with their English counterparts Hobbs, Smith, Nyman and White. A reaction against Serialism, their sound motifs come in fixed cycles, now and again two or more sounds appear at the same time, coincide and collide, making chords. Tilbury 5 was written 25 years later at the request of the performers Dahinden, Kleeb and Polisoidis to extend the

Born March 8, 1934 in Nice, France; lived mostly in U.S. since 1941; U.S. citizen since 1946. Studied piano with Grete Sultan, composition (briefly) with John Cage. Mostly autodidact, but early contact with Cage, Morton Feldman, David Tudor and Earle Brown, later Cornelius Cardew and Frederic Rzewski has helped form the direction of his work. Academic training in Classics and Comparative Literature at Harvard University. Has taught Classics at Harvard and, since 1971, Classics, Comparative Literature and Music at Dartmouth College (Hanover, New Hampshire). Compositions include works for piano(s), miscellaneous keyboards, instrumental solos, chamber groups, unspecified groups of players and sound sources, tape, chorus and orchestra. A particular interest in Wolff's work has been to allow performers flexibility and ranges of freedom at the actual time of a piece's performance; to devise notations to make this practicable; to foster among both professional and lay players a spirit of liberating interdependence; and to draw material from traditions of popular political music.

19. Christian Wolff Interview- Perfect Sound Forever
christian wolff. Interview by Jason Gross (April 1998) who had his own distinct ideas about composition. christian wolff briefly studied under Cage but soon took up his own
Interview by Jason Gross (April 1998)
Praise be to Christian Marclay for helping with this. PSF: You were originally studying with John Cage. What kind of effect do you think that had on your work? All kinds of effect! (laughs) Practically, he was my first and only composition teacher. He taught me a handful of practical things and then he basically let me go ahead on my own. Our lessons lasted for about six weeks. He taught me about rhythmic structure, Webern, did some counterpoint exercises and that was it basically. After that, I was doing my own pieces. I would make up my own systems for my pieces and he figured that was good enough. I didn't have to go on with counterpoint or other peoples' systems as long as I knew systems and knew how to work with it. That was the point. PSF: Did you find shortcomings with counter point? To tell the truth, I wasn't very good at it and he wasn't very interested. That's somewhat ironic because over the last ten years, I've become very interested in it and I've used it all the time in one form or another.
PSF: At that time when you began, Cage as well as David Tudor, Morton Feldman and Earle Brown were all active as well. All of you were seen together as a musical movement. Did you see similarities there or mostly differences in styles?
