Eurythmy as Visible Singing

The German title (GA 278 Eurythmie als sichtbarer Gesang)

This book is about Eurythmy with music (also known as tone eurythmy), the book is in two parts: Part I, Rudolf Steiner, EURYTHMY as VISIBLE SINGING Verbatim report of a course of lectures held in Dornach 19 Feb. 1924 – 27 Feb. 1924, 4th Edition, newly translated, including a facsimile, transcription and translation of the Lecturer’s Notes, with an introduction and index. Part II, A Companion to Rudolf Steiner’s "Eurythmy as Visible Singing", compiled and expanded by: Alan Stott, together with Josef Matthias HAUER “Interpreting Melos” (1923)

Eurythmy was born out of an enquiry about a profession in meaningful movement. The response was an “art for everyone”. Eurythmy researches “the original language of total bodily gesture” (to borrow a phrase of R.C. Collingwood). The source of movement and gesture in the human being is the focus of the eight lectures Rudolf Steiner gave in founding “visible singing”. The movement in musical experience is traced back to its origin in the human instrument itself. Like the degrees of the musical scale, the lecturer led his small audience of young artists in eight stages through the living principles of discovery and renewal.

In the turbulent artistic decades of the new century, Steiner (1924) took the latest manifesto, the artistic protest Interpreting Melos (1923) by the composer J.M. Hauer. Steiner answers Hauer’s deepest questioning with a hands-on activity. The spirit of renewal, he claims, has to grow out of the basics. These are available to everyone. Today, music eurythmy, along with speech eurythmy, is practiced as an art, taught as a subject in schools, enjoyed as a social activity, and applied as a therapy.

This definitive translation of both Hauer and Steiner comes with a full commentary, “a Companion”, with copious suggestions for further enquiry. Its publication marks 100 years since the birth of eurythmy.

“A rich handbook for active eurythmists and musicians, a text for advanced study” (from the Foreword by Dorothea Mier).

“Some pages are inspired, most are inspiring, some are both of these things” (Hugh O’Connor, reviewing the original edition of “A Companion…”)
