In Sound and Society’s fourth meeting of the spring quarter, we welcome Anabel Maler (Music Theory), who will share her a draft of her fourth dissertation chapter, entitled:
Cadential Function and Rhetoric in Works by Alfred Schnittke
Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018
4:30 – 6:00 PM
Thank you for taking the time to read this excerpt from my dissertation! I’m looking forward to getting your feedback. This is the first chapter of the second part of my dissertation. Part I (chapters 1-3) set out the methodological basis of my approach to formal functionality in post-tonal repertoires. Part II builds on the methodology established in Part I by exploring different expressive and rhetorical aspects of formal function through extended close readings, beginning with Alfred Schnittke’s polystylistic innovations.
Special thanks to Pierce Gradone for serving as respondent.
