Language and Thinking (L&T) Program presents
In this concert lecture, Helena Baillie and Tanya Gabrielian explore how Igor Stravinsky and Alfred Schnittke recast music of the Baroque period through a 20th-century lens, using modern techniques such as irregular rhythmic patterns and chromaticism within the structure and tonality of 18th-century music. After applying the constraints of Baroque forms through stylized dance patterns and the tonal progressions of a basso continuo, Stravinsky and Schnittke inserted subtle, playful and often ironic references to the language of 20th-century music, thus asserting their creative freedom within a narrowly established framework.
