Music Theory Online, 17.2:
This volume presents twelve entries (five articles, five essays, and two reviews) the majority of which promise a veritable July-4th celebration of American music and musical understanding. In particular, this issue includes a four-essay tribute to Milton Babbitt (1916-2011), written by authors who were directly affected by his work as a composer, scholar, and teacher.
Embodying Music: Principles of the Mimetic Hypothesis
Music, Memory and Memes in the Light of Calvinian Neuroscience.
A Tonal Revolution in Fifths and Semitones: Aaron Coplands Quiet City
Coplands Fifths and Their Structural Role in the Sonata for Violin and Piano
Creating Space: Perception and Structure in Charles Ivess Collages
Four scholars whose lives have been especially touched by Milton Babbitt present perspectives on his compositional language. These thoughtful analytical essays represent only a small token of Babbitts profound influence on music and music study of the last century. Emily Adamowicz discusses Philomel, Zachary Bernstein explores It Takes Twelve to Tango, Ciro Scotto investigates Groupwise, and Daphne Leong considers both Homily and Beaten Paths.
