The art of musical phrasing in the eighteenth century : punctuating the classical "period" by Stephanie Vial( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are, of course, no commas, periods, or question marks in music of the Baroque and Classic eras. Nonetheless, the concept of 'punctuating' music into longer and shorter units of expression was richly explored by many of the era's leading composers, theorists, and performers. The Art of Musical Phrasing in the Eighteenth Century gathers and discusses, for the first time, an extensive collection of quotations and musical illustrations relevant to phrase articulation and written and unwritten rests. Among the notable authors cited and discussed are Muffat, Telemann, C. P. E. Bach, Mattheson, Marpurg, Tartini, and Mozart's father Leopold (author of the most important eighteenth-century treatise on string playing). On a larger scale, The Art of Musical Phrasing demonstrates the role of punctuation within the history of rhetoric during the Age of Enlightenment. From this, the performer of today can gain a greater appreciation for both the strengths and shortcomings of the analogy that writers of the day drew between punctuation in written language and in music. Modern performers, argues Vial, have the challenge and responsibility of understanding and conveying the nuances, inflections, and rhythmic gestures deeply embedded in eighteenth-century musical notation. The Art of Musical Phrasing, the fruit of Vial's rich experience as a cellist performing on both period and modern instruments, lays out long-needed practical suggestions for achieving this goal."--Publisher's website

Take pause : musical punctuation in the eighteenth century by Stephanie Vial( )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Punctuation was a conspicuous and hotly contested element of eighteenth-century literary and oratorical theory, which, combining the precepts of classical rhetoric with the contemporary demands for elocution, sought to control every nuance and expression of language. Punctuation was required to meet the twofold demands of grammar and rhetoric, resulting in a kind of "pointing craze" which reached its culmination during the latter part of the century, the same period during which the application of punctuation as an analogy for the concept of musical phrasing achieved its greatest prominence. An understanding of musical punctuation in this context helps illuminate both its nature and the manner in which musical theory continually reflects the latest trends of linguistic theory
