obviously  columnist's opinions do not necessarily coincide with my personal ones.IMHO too broad topics are taken into consideration and treated briefly there is no careful research on profoundly different historical periods and phenomena

7.1 Miloslav Kabeláč was born in Prague in 1908.

Already as a student, he revealed a distinctive musical personality. He seldom used twelve-note techniques, but often created unusual modes. This sometimes involved alternating smaller (particularly semitone) and larger intervals, or the gradual expansion of intervals when repeating or developing a motif. Such modes do not always span a whole octave but only a fifth. Kabeláč continued to retain tonality, in a broad sense, for most of his work.

In 1939 he gave us the cantata Neustupujte! (Do not Retreat!), opus 7. It was written for male chorus, wind and percussion.

6.3 Luigi Dallapiccola was the principal pioneer of dodecaphony in Italy.

Il Prigioniero (The Prisoner) was his second opera. Here the idiom is wholly if idiosyncratically dodecaphonic (several series are employed and free use is made of octave doubling and other irregularities): the series often, however, contain diatonic, even pentatonic segments, which are prominently featured to symbolize the liberty for which the prisoner yearns, spurred on by the gaoler’s golden promises. In the end this liberty is revealed as illusion (there is an insubstantial, mirage-like air about the liberty music throughout) and the work ends with a gaping question mark. Despite these differences, Il prigioniero can be regarded as, in many respects, a sequel to the Canti di Prigionia, from which the opera’s last choral section quotes. But Volo di notte, too, is an important predecessor: both operas owe a fair amount to Berg’s influence – refracted, however, through Dallapiccola’s profoundly Italian personality.

Counterpoint, a Practical Course of Study

by G. A. Macfarren

It is hoped that the present work contains nothing new in fact. It is founded on observation of the music of greatest artists, observation matured perhaps by long use in attempted explaining. . . .

Throughout the book modulation is a matter which is not discussed.

Does the above make the remotest semblance of sense to anybody? Macfarren was good at opera, crap at symphonies and boring as hell as a pedagogue. He could modulate alright, but probably realised that his audience was comatose by that point...

Thanks, Chris. One realises when one is "pissing in the wind" in terms of forum moderation. I gave up on UC similarly because it is run by egomaniacs (one in particular). I simply fail to comprehend the mentality: a forum isn't a pet to be tamed and moulded in the image of the one who pulls the strings, it is a place for friends to discuss what interests them both publicly and privately.

The current style is antithetical to my approach, but if members wish to persevere...
