BARTOK DIMINISHED FIFTH PDF

The tritone can be used to avoid traditional tonality: According to a complex but widely used naming conventionsix of them are classified as augmented fourthsand the other six as diminished fifths. Diminished Fifth, for piano Mikrokosmos Vol. Melody against double notes. In other meantone tuning systems, besides tone equal temperament, A4 and d5 are distinct intervals because neither is exactly half an octave. Melody divided, Andante G lydian, 30 bars. Allegro C major, 45 bars In twelve-tone equal temperament, the most commonly used tuning systemthe A4 is equivalent to a d5, as both have the size of exactly half an octave.

Nomenclature[ edit ] In St. Petersburg at the turn of the 20th century, this scale had become so familiar in the circle of composers around Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov that it was referred to as the Korsakovian scale Корсаковская гамма Taruskin , As early as , the Russian theorist Boleslav Yavorsky described this collection of pitches as the diminished mode уменьшённый лад , because of the stable way the diminished fifth functions in it Taruskin , —13, citing Yavorsky In more recent Russian theory, the term octatonic is not used.

Instead, this scale is placed among other symmetrical modes total 11 under its historical name Rimsky-Korsakov scale, or Rimsky-Korsakov mode Kholopov , 30; Kholopov , In jazz theory, it is called the diminished scale Campbell , or symmetric diminished scale Hatfield , because it can be conceived as a combination of two interlocking diminished seventh chords , just as the augmented scale can be conceived as a combination of two interlocking augmented triads.

Levine , 78 Because it was associated in the early 20th century with the Dutch composer Willem Pijper , in the Netherlands, it is called the Pijper scale Taruskin , Construction[ edit ] The three octatonic scales The twelve tones of the chromatic scale are covered by three disjoint diminished seventh chords. The notes from two such seventh-chords combination form an octatonic collection. Because there are three ways to select two from three, there are three octatonic scales in the twelve-tone system.

Each octatonic scale has exactly two modes : the first begins its ascent with a whole step , while the second begins its ascent with a half step semitone. Levine , 78 Each of the three distinct scales can form differently named scales with the same sequence of tones by starting at a different point in the scale. Symmetry[ edit ] The three octatonic collections are transpositionally and inversionally symmetric —that is, they are related by a variety of transposition and inversion operations: They are each closed under transpositions by 3, 6, or 9 semitones.

Thus, the set of transpositions acts on the set of diminished collections as the integers modulo 3. If the transposition is congruent to 0 mod 3 the pitch collection is unchanged and the transpositions by 1 semitone or by 2 semitones are inverse to one another.

All other transformations do not change the classes e. This unfortunately means that the inversions do not act as a simple cyclic group on the set of diminished scales. The scale "allows familiar harmonic and linear configurations such as triads and modal tetrachords to be juxtaposed unusually but within a rational framework" though the relation of the diatonic scale to the melodic and harmonic surface is thus generally oblique Pople , 2.

While Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov claimed he was conscious of the octatonic collection "as a cohesive frame of reference" in his autobiography My Musical Life Van den Toorn , , n5 , instances can be found in music of previous centuries. Taruskin , also cites the following bars from J. The slow movement of this work contains a passage of what was, for its time, highly dissonant harmony. Link to passage on YouTube Taruskin continues: "Thanks to the reinforcement the lesson has received in some equally famous pieces like Scheherazade , the progression is often thought of as being peculiarly Russian" Taruskin , Tchaikovsky was also influenced by the harmonic and coloristic potential of octatonicism.

As Mark DeVoto , points out, the cascading arpeggios played on the celesta in the "Sugar Plum Fairy" from The Nutcracker ballet are made up of dominant seventh chords a minor third apart.

Project (analysis): Bartok, Diminished Fifth (1940)

Wakeman - 1 In considering the composers of the early twentieth century, Bartok and Stravinsky are two names that come to the top of the list as significant innovators. There are many similarities between them — they both enjoyed success in Europe, both were outstanding pianists, both utilized folk music in various ways in their compositions, both explored alternate approaches to harmony, rhythm, and pitch organization, and both eventually relocated to the United States, although under very different circumstances. However, their approaches to octatonic materials were very different, from both a theoretical and an aesthetic perspective. To lay a bit of ground work, it is important to understand that the octatonic collection, as referred to in this study, is a symmetrical collection of pitch classes featuring alternating half and whole step intervals. The octatonic collection is limited to only three possible unique transpositions shown in example 1. It is typically presented in most texts as an ordered collection, but it is often not used as an ordered collection. Many people even mistakenly refer to it as a scale, but the word scale typically implies a clear tonic as well as a specific ordering of pitches in relationship to that tonic.
