Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Colleges, School and Institutes
Analysts of twelve-note music tend to treat this repertory as if it were composed of numbers rather than notes. The first part of this article asks how they might treat this music as if it were music. A theoretical position is developed via close readings of the work a number of theorists and philosophers, notably Roger Scruton and Theodor W. Adorno. In part two, the potential of the position developed in part one is tested in a review of three books on twelve-note music by Nikos Skalkottas and Luigi Dallapiccola.
