"The book represents musicology in the best and fullest sense, as Malin makes real points regarding the historical evolution of the German Lied through his analyses of the rhythms of text, melody, and accompaniment. Moreover, Malin's analytic readings go beyond the details of how these songs work to show why they work the way they do...With Songs in Motion Malin shares both his understanding and his pleasures of these Lieder; as he aptly puts it: "This--in a nutshell--is what song analysis is about' (207). Indeed, it is." --Music Theory Online"Malin's book is an important contribution not only to song analysis, but also to rhythmic/metric theory. Music theorists, musicologists, and performers will enjoy his penetrating, sophisticated, and innovative analyses of poetry and music, and of their interaction as they move together through time."-Harald Krebs, author of Fantasy Pieces: Metrical Dissonance in the Music of Robert Schumann"At once a study of the ontology of the Lied and a comparative exploration of musical style, Songs in Motion lays bare the polyrhythmic foundation of song and demonstrates its workings in a variety of nineteenth-century compositions. Yonatan Malin draws on the strongest music-theoretical resources to engage listeners, performers, and thinkers in equal measure. This book significantly raises the stakes in theory-based analysis of song."-Kofi Agawu, author of Music as Discourse: Semiotic Adventures in Romantic MusicFrom the Publisher:
Qualities of motion and emotion in song come from poetic images, melody, harmony, and voice leading, but they also come from rhythm and metre-the flow and articulation of words and music in time. This book explores rhythm and metre in the nineteenth-century German Lied, including songs for voice and piano by Fanny Hensel née Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, and Hugo Wolf.
The Lied, as a genre, is characterized especially by the fusion of poetry and music. Poetic metre itself has expressive qualities, and rhythmic variations contribute further to the modes of signification. These features often carry over into songs, even as they are set in the more strictly determined periodicities of musical metre. A new method of declamatory-schema analysis is presented to illustrate common possibilities for setting trimeter, tetrameter, and pentameter lines. Degrees of rhythmic regularity and irregularity are also considered.
There has been a wealth of new work on metric theory and analysis in the past thirty years; here this research is reviewed and applied in song analysis. Topics include the nature of metric entrainment (drawing on music psychology), metric dissonance, hypermeter, and phrase rhythm.
Whereas narrative accounts of the nineteenth-century Lied typically begin with Schubert, here forms of expansion and elision in songs by Hensel provide a point of departure. Repetition links up directly with motion in songs by Schubert, including his famous "Gretchen am Spinnrade." The doubling and reverberation of vocal melody creates a form of interiorized resonance in Schumann's songs. Brahms and Wolf are typically understood as polar opposites in the later nineteenth century; here the differences are clarified along with deeper affinities. Songs by both Brahms and Wolf may be understood as musical performances of poetic readings, and in this regard they both belong to a late period of cultural history.
