I was a little unsure about the nature and form of this piece because…

  • Mahler 4th Symphony Analysis

    It is worth mentioning that most of the quotations are from large Symphonic works of composers who were living and writing concomitantly with Mahler. Berio himself in an interview assumes the emphasis placed on 20th century music, most specifically in the last one hundred years. Although the preference for modern works points towards a post-tonal harmonic structure, the majority of quotations are of a more moderate nature, such as Stravinsky, Ravel and Debussy rather than the full-blown…

  • Bach Partitas Analysis

    Bach’s three sets of six suites for keyboard, titled Partitas, French Suites, and English Suites have caused specialists to fruitlessly comb each set for some sense of distinct national characteristics.

The English Suites, or Suites pour les Anglois, for example, were published with this name after Bach’s death. The basic style of Baroque suites, including Bach’s instrumental suites, was…

  • The Imbalance Of Yin Yang

    Without the black or white keys on a piano, the sounds created will never be rich nor harmonious. Just like the keys, everything in life comes in duos. Without one another, the other can’t exist because together, duality forms a whole. Similarly, energy is needed during the day, but inactivity is necessary during the night to recharge. No human would survive deprived of warmth in the cold, but none would exist either if left without coolness in the heat. What may seem as opposite forces are in…
