Eleven video clips of Grock in performance. The son of a watchmaker, he became an amateur acrobat and was allowed to spend each summer with a circus, where he performed first as a tumbler and then as a violinist, pianist, and xylophonist. He became the partner of a clown named Brick and changed his name to Grock in At Berlin , appearing on a stage instead of in an arena, they failed at first; but, by mastering the stage technique, they obtained a London engagement in Two years later Grock perfected those adventures of a simpleton among musical instruments that made many a European audience laugh -- at his wonder as to where the strings had gone when he held his fiddle the wrong side up.

The talented musician, who could play 24 instruments and speak many languages, became the king of clowns in the early s. He also started a successful music publishing business for his popular songs. In he left England and remained on the European continent until his farewell performance at age 74 in Hamburg, Germany , on October 30 , His performances have been preserved on film. The highest-paid artist at one time in Europe , was broke after buying a circus tent for his variety show after World War II , but recovered financially through successful tours.

He retired to the villa he had built in the s in the surroundings of Imperia. Grock was my neighbor at Oneglia: he dwelt in an odd and complex country house in the hills, in a sort of oriental garden with small pagodas, small lakes, bridges, streams and weeping-willows. During that performance, just once, he suddenly stopped and, staring at the audience, he asked: WARUM why. If you have already looked at the videos, all the better.

He was a music clown. Notice how repetitions and pauses in just announcing the name of the song builds tension. A similar effect can be created with music. He entrances us with his charm and relative earnestness and then trips backward into a bass drum.

How can you entrance people when you play a phrase of music? How do you surprise them with the turns it can take? Grock appears to be almost crotchety and stiff which makes his feats of virtuosic athleticism even more astounding.

What is the secret of imbuing music with a kind of modesty that only makes its virtuosity even more revelatory?

Sequenza V (author's note)

Sequenza V for trombone Sequenza V for trombone can be considered as an essay in the superimposition of musical gestures and actions: the performer combines and transforms both the sound of his voice and the proper sound of the instrument. In other words, he must perform two functions simultaneously: playing and singing. As in Sequenza III for voice, also in Sequenza V I tried to develop a musical commentary between the virtuoso and his instrument, by disassociating various types of behaviour and then putting them together again, transformed, as musical unities. Thus Sequenza V can also be heard and seen as a theatre of vocal and instrumental gestures. Grock was my neighbour in Oneglia. He lived in a strange and complicated villa up the hill, surrounded by a kind of Oriental garden with small pagodas, streams, bridges and willow trees. Many times, with my schoolmates, I climbed a high iron fence to steal oranges and tangerines from his garden.
