7 III. ANALYSIS PIECE B Page 7 You have been provided with a score excerpt o an orchestral piece rom the twentieth century (see Piece B). Answer the ollowing questions with reerence to this score. A recording o the excerpt will be played or you two times. Texture 1. The musical texture o Piece B may be described as a mosaic-like combination o various short three-note igures. While these three-note igures are all quite similar, they are presented in such a way that the listener can easily distinguish them rom each other. Consider measures 1- o the score. a) Name two musical actors that help a listener to recognize the similarities between the three-note igures. b) How are the three-note igures in this passage set apart rom each other? Name three musical actors that help a listener to hear each three-note igure as an individual unit within the overall texture.

9 Page 9 a) Which motives are exact transpositions o each other? (List each pair o motives that are related in this way. One possible answer is provided below.) B and F b) Which motives are melodic inversions o each other? c) Which motives are melodic retrogrades o each other? d) Which motives are melodic retrograde-inversions o each other? Rhythm. Compare the overall rhythm o measures 1- with the overall rhythm o measures 4-5. Explain the rhythmic development in measure 4-5. Twelve-Tone Series 4. The pitch structure o Piece B is governed by a twelve-tone series. This twelve-tone series is used in our dierent orms (prime orm, inversion, retrograde, retrograde inversion) as well as in dierent transpositions. The prime orm o the series is stated in measures 1-. It consists o the ollowing succession o pitches: Prime orm (mm. 1-): B - Bb - D - Eb - G - F# - G# - E - F - C - C# - A

10 This initial statement o the series is ollowed, in measures 4-8, by three more statements. For each series statement in measures 4-8, provide the ollowing inormation: Page 10 Spell out the succession o pitches that constitutes the series. (The irst and last pitches are given below.) Identiy the orm o the series, choosing rom the ollowing options: prime orm, inversion, retrograde, or retrograde-inversion. (You do not need to to speciy the transposition level.) a) Measures 4-5, piano Succession o pitches: D C Form o series: Example a b) Measures 6-7 (beat 1); clarinet, viola, violin, oboe Succession o pitches: C# B Form o series:
