Author by: George Perle Language: en Publisher by: Univ of California Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 40 Total Download: 579 File Size: 42,7 Mb Description: Widely recognized as the definitive work in its field ever since its original publication in 1962, Serial Composition and Atonality remains an unsurpassed introduction to the technical features of what is probably the most revolutionary body of work since the beginnings of polyphony. In the analysis of specific compositions there is first and last of all a concern with the musical surface--an attempt to trace connections and distinctions there before offering any deeper-level constructions, and to offer none where their effects are not obvious on more immediate levels of musical experience.
In this sixth edition of the book, George Perle employs the new and more consistent terminology for the identification of transpositional levels of twelve-tone sets that he first proposed in Twelve-Tone Tonality (1977). Author by: George Perle Language: en Publisher by: Univ of California Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 28 Total Download: 160 File Size: 42,7 Mb Description: In this classic work, George Perle argues that the seemingly disparate styles of post-triadic music in fact share common structural elements. These elements collectively imply a new tonality as 'natural' and coherent as the major-minor tonality that was the basis of a common musical language in the past. His book describes the foundational assumptions of this post-diatonic tonality and illustrates its compositional functions with numerous musical examples.The second edition of 'Twelve-Tone Tonality' is enlarged by eleven new chapters, some of which are 'postscripts' to earlier chapters--clarifying, elucidating, and expanding upon concepts discussed in the original edition.
Theorists such as George Perle codified serial systems, and his 1962 text Serial Composition and Atonality became a standard work on the origins of serial composition in the work of Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern. The serialization of rhythm, dynamics, and other elements of music was partly fostered by the work of Olivier. George, serial composition and atonality an introduction to the music of.

Others discuss new developments in the theory and practice of twelve-tone tonality, including voice-leading implications of the system and dissonance treatment.

This Pendragon edition brings the wealth of his earlier writings on the Lyric Suite together for the first time and includes, in addition, new material on the quartet's history, new analytical observations, and a comparative study of the sketches and drafts that allows the reader to convert the currently published score into an authoritatively corrected edition.' --BOOK JACKET. Author by: Sabine Feisst Language: en Publisher by: Oxford University Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 12 Total Download: 328 File Size: 55,6 Mb Description: Arnold Schoenberg was a polarizing figure in twentieth century music, and his works and ideas have had considerable and lasting impact on Western musical life.
A refugee from Nazi Europe, he spent an important part of his creative life in the United States (1933-1951), where he produced a rich variety of works and distinguished himself as an influential teacher. However, while his European career has received much scholarly attention, surprisingly little has been written about the genesis and context of his works composed in America, his interactions with Americans and other?migr?s, and the substantial, complex, and fascinating performance and reception history of his music in this country. Author Sabine Feisst illuminates Schoenberg's legacy and sheds a corrective light on a variety of myths about his sojourn. Looking at the first American performances of his works and the dissemination of his ideas among American composers in the 1910s, 1920s and early 1930s, she convincingly debunks the myths surrounding Schoenberg's alleged isolation in the US.
Whereas most previous accounts of his time in the US have portrayed him as unwilling to adapt to American culture, this book presents a more nuanced picture, revealing a Schoenberg who came to terms with his various national identities in his life and work. Feisst dispels lingering negative impressions about Schoenberg's teaching style by focusing on his methods themselves as well as on his powerful influence on such well-known students as John Cage, Lou Harrison, and Dika Newlin.
Schoenberg's influence is not limited to those who followed immediately in his footsteps-a wide range of composers, from Stravinsky adherents to experimentalists to jazz and film composers, were equally indebted to Schoenberg, as were key figures in music theory like Milton Babbitt and David Lewin. In sum, Schoenberg's New World contributes to a new understanding of one of the most important pioneers of musical modernism. Author by: Bryan R.
Simms Language: en Publisher by: Psychology Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 66 Total Download: 287 File Size: 51,5 Mb Description: This book contains a comprehensive survey of research into the life and works of Alban Berg (1885-1935). Berg is one of the major composers of the twentieth century and a central figure in the Second Viennese School. His music, including the operasWozzeckandLulu,is performed and studied by musicians worldwide. Over 1,000 writings on Berg, dating from 1911 to the present, are cited and analyzed. In addition, the author's essay 'Berg: The Making of a Classic Composer' presents a new study of Berg's life and career development and traces the history of his standing in the technical and critical literature. It is followed by a comprehensive, annotated list of Berg's published music and writings.
All important books, articles, published dissertations, and exhibition catalogs on Berg are cited, in all editions and translations, and in all languages with the exception of Asian ones. Each item is provided with an abstract newly prepared by the author, and reviews of books concerning Berg arereferenced. The bibliography reveals important and hitherto unnoted sources, including a formal analysis of Berg's Piano Sonata, Op. 1, which was probably written by the composer himself, and a socialist interpretation ofWozzeck that had Berg's personal approval.
The bibliography is organized topically, with writings on each of Berg's major compositions brought together in separate chapters. A final chapter deals with studies of Berg's life, cultural milieu, and general musical surveys. A comprehensive author and subject index facilitates use of the book. Author by: George Perle Language: en Publisher by: Univ of California Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 19 Total Download: 166 File Size: 49,6 Mb Description: 'The first volume of Perle's magnificent study focused on Wozuck..Its successor, equally painstaking and perceptive, is if anything more invaluable, for the clouds of mystery around Berg's second opera are only now beginning to disperse, and the work is coming to be regarded properly as the climax of the composer's achievement.' --Andrew Clements, Opera'Perle's books have laid the groundwork for a thorough exploration of the remarkably successful ways in which Berg was able to marry a powerful intellectual grasp of a richly developing language to an instinctive feel for dramatic shape, a process that marks him out as one of the few genuine opera composers this century.' --Michael Taylor, Music and Letters'The first volume, Wozzeck. Was universally recognized as being a work of outstanding scholarship.
The Lulu volume is an even more impressive achievement. Sony Vegas Pro 8 Codec Pack. In its analytical sophistication, its critical insights and in the implications which it has for our understanding not only of Berg but of a whole body of post-diatonic music, Perle's Lulu is one of the most exciting and important books on music to appear for many years.' --Douglas Jarman, Times Literary Supplement'With the second of his books on The Operas of Alban Berg, this American musicologist and composer has now taken advantage of all this new material to consolidate his own research and present us with the most sophisticated musical analysis yet made of the composer. As Perle shows, Lulu represents the highest point of development in Berg's music from the point of view of ambiguity of fabrication.' --Stephen Reeve, Classical Music'Nothing I've read in the past year makes as important a contribution to this literature as The Operas of Alban Berg: Volume Two: Lulu. Per!e's saga of the opera's release from partial captivity reads like one of the great intellectual detective stories of our era. What emerges most flavorfully is Perle's portrait of a haunted artist who imbued his later works with concealed autobiographical gestures, including his longtime love affair with a Prague matron.'
--Ailan Ulrich, San Francisco Focus'The goal of the two-volume work is not merely to dwell in detail on the operas themselves, but to give some account of Berg's other music, in order to set the operas in the context of his complete output. With a composer like Berg, whose music is intimately bound up with his own personal life, such an approach is particularly appropriate. George Perle has given the world two volumes which will remain at the top of their field for many years to come.' --Douglass M. Green, Journal of the American Musicological Society'.
