  1. Non-Classical Music
    Hey, folks. My name's Joe. How's it going? I signed up here because I've been taking an interest in theory recently but have slowly come to realize that most of the books I've been reading are geared towards classical music and that my areas of interest span wider than that. So I started...
  2. Music Theory
    Hello. I recently got the full Bärenreiter Urtext score of the Symphony no. 3 (Eroica) by Beethoven. I've always loved this piece. I am analyzing it, and so far I have been more concerned with the harmonies and counterpoints of the first movement. I play the piano, so I guess harmony comes more...
  3. Music Theory
    I recently found out that the educational institute Khan Academy had a course on Music, all narrated by Gerard Schwarz. It includes basics on several instruments and on Music Theory, but it also a section called "Masterpieces old and new" that includes analysis of many famous works, including...

  5. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi there - I made a Video Essay on Whitacre that I thought you might like! I'm new to Video Essays but I wanted to share with you and thought it might be the kind of thing that's appropriate for this forum - it looks at how Whitacre's music is heavily influenced by Rock. I'm making more in...
  6. Music Theory
    I love a deeper understanding of music, but I don't have a musical background. As a result, I feel like there are the too simplistic intro/appreciation to music books, or the two Piston books I own where I make it about two chapters before I am over my head. Is there a happy medium? Something...
  7. Music Theory
    Hello to all Talk Classical community! First of all, I'm not sure whether this thread can be here or I should have placed it in another category. Sorry if it is, my mistake. I will be glad to change it. Well. Let's go to the issue. I was analysing the period I attached under these lines when...
  8. Music Theory
    Hello everyone. I'm self-taught in Music Theory with the help of the youth minister at my church, who has his Masters in Music Composition, and someone in my Church who knows how to play most standard orchestral instruments. I'm going to be getting a degree in Music Composition myself, but I'm...
  9. Music Theory
    I've been reading the analysis of this paper regarding this late masterpiece and found the sample from the score here: I assume that this is a permutation-based motif which is running through the whole piece? The original paper is at: http://www.cnvill.net/mfsani2.htm I couldn't make heads...
  10. Today's Composers
    This is one of the few places on the internet where you can ask this, so here I go... When you read a score (in silence), can you imagine the sound of the music? If yes, to what extent/ how vividly (esp. regarding timbre)? Did your ability arise as a side-effect of instrumental training or did...

    From 2001 - 2006 I went on a mad music book collection rampage and collected every kind of book I thought would help be get to a profound level of understanding of music composition. I had a great skill of tracking down hard to find books and actually monitored the used book market for years to...

    Hello, friends I'm here to ask for your help in a research i'm making. I'm doing an psychoanalytical analysis on the mentioned work. But, although i have some good books about Berg, none seems to talk specifically about the sonata or about his earlier compositions. So, i would like to know if...
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    I am a student doing a project researching the identity of the composer of the violin solo piece, "Chaconne in g minor". The piece is accredited to Antonio Vitali, a composer in the late Baroque era. The piece itself is an anomaly of a baroque piece as it includes many characteristics from the...
