Music in the making. Produced by Milliken university under a grant from the Educational Television and Radio Center in cooperation with the National Association of educational broadcasters. And really good school of music presents concert pianist Elizabeth Travis chairman of the piano department in a recorded consideration of phrasing rather than talking at length Professor Travis has elected to include along Chopin composition. Louise Krantz a graduate student in the department will play the musical illustrations first a few measures from Chopins F minor ballade. Phrasing is a feature. Speech it serves
the same purpose in the language of words as in the language of changes the meaning of a sentence to a point of distortion phrasing. Performance is the meat in artistic observance of the cadences of the phrases and also of the half phrases not necessarily by any pronounced break but by judicious point to the harmonic structure of the music. Such phrasing may be the last refinement interpretation was perfectly phrased. Let's listen to these measures again but this time the proper phrasing. And the correct inflection projects this phrase in
its complete meaning. A matter of vital importance in the study of phrasing is the distinction between metric and rhythmic accent. The first term describes the natural stress that occurs at the beginning of a measure. Thus. The second term describes the refined stress assigned to subdivisions of a measure or usually an accident such as this type beat when it's approached by wide melodic leap or by rest such as you hear in this example.
Phrasing accentuation. But it is something putting in accent. If we wish to achieve plastic and expressive phrasing we must contrive to suggest curves rather than straight lines by constantly varying the amount of time so that two successive notes are quite similar. We can give it a listen for this balancing contrasting of themes and the beautiful effects as Chris closes the program with a performance in its entirety. Professor Elizabeth Travice assisted by Louise Grant is brought here recorded
consideration of phrasing. Music in the making was produced by Milliken university under a grant from the Educational Television and Radio Center. This program is distributed by the National Association of educational broadcasters. This is the Radio Network.
