William Kinderman: Beethoven’s thirteenth Diabelli variation

Posted By ArielLanyi on Music

http://feedproxy.google.com - The comic Vivace that forms the thirteenth of the 33 variations exploits contrasts of rhythm, dynamics, and register. The initial dotted figure energizes the thrust to the downbeat, reflecting but intensifying the model of Diabelli’s waltz, as Beethoven employs full-voiced A-minor chords in place of the lighter sonorities of the waltz. While so reformulating Diabelli’s […]

Haydn’s two-page sonata in C major: Not masterful but remarkable

You open a random page and find a masterpiece that you can’t imagine not having known before. Although Haydn has distinct characteristics that appear in many of his works, each sonata has something unique to offer. This week, however, I want […]

Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and the “three periods” fallacy

Posted By ArielLanyi on Music

http://feedproxy.google.com - Many composers are viewed through the lens of their creative periods, but none more so than Beethoven. The concept of his “three periods” has become an inescapable paradigm for musicians and listeners alike, so much so that whenever we hear a work by Beethoven, we rush, even if subconsciously, to assign a period label to […]

Love, power, and retribution: Ingmar Bergman’s response to Chopin

Posted By ArielLanyi on Music

http://feedproxy.google.com - Two things I am not: an expert on film and an interpreter of Chopin. Having played Chopin extensively as a teenager, I eventually came to the conclusion that although I’m second to none in my love and admiration for the composer, I simply lack the innate sense of rhythm and phrasing needed to play good […]
