"This is a music theory book with a difference and one that fills a need... The theory it advances is that expression of character and affect in music corresponds to the expression of character and affect in human posture and movement ... Musicians and music teachers will take from it both a sense of liberation and an incentive for more imaginative discipline ... its scholarship is deep and persuasive." Professor David Lidov, York University, Ontario, CanadaReseña del editor:
Alexandra Pierce helps musicians gain a richer understanding of music through the use of the body and gesture. She asserts that expression of character and affect in music corresponds to expression of character and affect in physical gesture. She seeks to answer the question, "What is vitality in music?" and to find answers that contribute to hearing and performing this core quality of music and that can be integrated into the daily practice of a musician. Pierce's approach is to isolate and explore through movement such elements of music as melody, beat, and structural levels. Short narratives that illustrate how performance practice problems can be approached and solved are scattered throughout the book.
