Me no nothing? Impossible!
Hey, did you see Stravinsky at the end, wonderful conducting (well, I say that but I didn't have to play along--it looks wonderful to me) and such excellent playing by the orchestra and Stravinsky uses the audience applause to...add to his applause for their excellent playing--
greg, do you fancy writing (or helping to write?--or hey, I can string pieces together, the words are to stop it just being video-video-video - I like the idea of describing the theme in some way--but--yes!--terms have technical meanings well-defined, and you clearly know the technical aspects at levels well beyond--...ach...music video diary: how to improve the structure?)...but I'm also thinking that this project is failing to engage the ET readership--all suggestions welcome!
(I was thinking 'timbre' would be the next theme--but I'm not---ach!)
What an excellent comment! Now I must listen to the Gabrieli piece again--while following along with the score (Rachmaninov playing Rachmaninov! Following the score was....staring at a work of art as the work of art was played...greg, I'm failing miserably to say--thanks for the comment!
Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
Melody and harmony are abstractions. The books on harmony by Heinrich Schenker and Arnold Schoenberg are probably too technical for most people but they shouldn't deter an intrepid explorer like yourself.
I personally don't like Stravinsky's conducting that much (I only watched a little bit). He elicits a performance that is a little too emotionally sterile for me. But Stravinsky is one of my favorite composers.
