9780195146400: Elements of Sonata Theory: Norms, Types, and Deformations in the Late-Eighteenth-Century Sonata

Elements of Sonata Theory is a comprehensive, richly detailed rethinking of the basic principles of sonata form in the decades around 1800. This foundational study draws upon the joint strengths of current music history and music theory to outline a new, up-to-date paradigm for understanding the compositional choices found in the instrumental works of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and their contemporaries: sonatas, chamber music, symphonies, overtures, and concertos. In so doing, it also lays out the indispensable groundwork for anyone wishing to confront the later adaptations and deformations of these basic structures in the nineteenth and earlier twentieth centuries.

Combining insightful music analysis, contemporary genre theory, and provocative hermeneutic turns, the book brims over with original ideas, bold and fresh ways of awakening the potential meanings within a familiar musical repertory. Sonata Theory grasps individual compositions-and each of the individual moments within them-as creative dialogues with an implicit conceptual background of flexible, ever-changing historical norms and patterns. These norms may be recreated as constellations "compositional defaults," any of which, however, may be stretched, strained, or overridden altogether for individualized structural or expressive purposes. This book maps out the terrain of that conceptual background, against which what actually happens-or does not happen-in any given piece may be assessed and measured.

The Elements guides the reader through the standard (and less-than-standard) formatting possibilities within each compositional space in sonata form, while also emphasizing the fundamental role played by processes of large-scale circularity, or "rotation," in the crucially important ordering of musical modules over an entire movement. The book also illuminates new ways of understanding codas and introductions, of confronting the generating processes of minor-mode sonatas, and of grasping the arcs of multimovement cycles as wholes. Its final chapters provide individual studies of alternative sonata types, including "binary" sonata structures, sonata-rondos, and the "first-movement form" of Mozart's concertos.

Review:

"This is not only a large book but a hugely ambitious one. It reconceptualizes the sonata style of the late eighteenth century in ways consonant with the theory of the time but from the perspective of a present-day listener, one whose life experiences are shaped not by carriages and quills but by
jets and computers. Its signal virtue is the way it tracks an expert listener's mental construction of a musical work as it unfolds in real time. Its terminology is deliberately idiosyncratic, but entering the world of sonata theory yields rich rewards. The theory is also syncretic in the best
sense: it draws upon and opens up onto the work of thinkers from Koch to Lewin and from Schenker to Sartre."--William Rothstein, Professor of Music Theory at Queens College and The Graduate Center of The City University of New York
"James Hepokoski and Warren Darcy's sonata theory has already had a striking impact on our analysis and interpretation of sonata form. With the publication of Elements of Sonata Theory we now have the real item. Sonata theory is, first and foremost, a theory of genre: Hepokoski and Darcy have
immersed themselves for many years in the repertoire that they study, and they argue persuasively for the generic conventions that undergird their study. Sonata theory is also an analytic method: deep knowledge of convention and compositional practice engenders a finely-tuned tool that enables
perceptive and sensitive musical analysis. Finally, sonata theory is a means of hermeneutic interpretation: expressive meaning arises out of the interaction of the individual work with generic convention. The meticulous scholarship and the analytical insight of the elementsrepresent the best
possible collaboration of musicology and music theory."--Patrick McCreless, Professor of Music Theory, Yale University

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2006. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Elements of Sonata Theory outlines a fresh approach to analysing the sonata. Both building on and departing from earlier methods of analysis, this study provides a comprehensive and in-depth examination of the sonata genre. After establishing the normative features of the sonata, the authors examine how individual sonatas from Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart both adhere to and deviate from those standards to a variety of effects. Co-authored by a music theorist and a musicologist, this book both provides a groundbreaking foundational theory and offers fresh insights on individual works from the Western canon.
