Stravinsky's Topology

Front Cover
Andrew Kuster, 2005 - Music - 202 pages
Stravinsky's Topology is an innovative explanation of the music of the great composer Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971). Specifically, this book examines Stravinsky's implementation of certain twelve-tone row forms for particular formal events and to enhance the poetry in his later works with poetic texts. This book, reprinted from a doctoral dissertation, presents a new analytical method called Object-Oriented analysis to study Stravinsky's smaller works Epitaphium, Anthem, Elegy for J. F. K., Fanfare for a New Theater, and The Owl and the Pussy-Cat. The remainder of this book is devoted to a detailed examination of Stravinsky's expanded Object-Oriented compositional technique in The Flood and in his largest late work, Threni. This investigation concludes with remarks about how a conductor can apply Object-Oriented analysis in performance. 216 pages.
