It definitely seems to be closer to the definition of art than music in my opinion anyway. Gottfried von Leibniz (1646–1716), music reflected a universal rhythm and mirrored a reality that was fundamentally mathematical, to be experienced in the mind as a subconscious apprehension of numerical relationships. Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) perpetuated, in effect, the idea of the harmony of the spheres, attempting to relate music to planetary movement. St. Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–74), held the basis of music to be mathematical; music reflects celestial movement and order. Such returns to simplicity, directness, and the primacy of the word have been made periodically, out of loyalty to Platonic imperatives, however much these “neo” practices may have differed from those of the Greeks themselves.

Then, he suddenly rallies for a fast ending, albeit one that sounds a bit more like a fit of panic than one of triumph. The solo cello sonata, composed as far back as 1955 in Berlin, is more reminiscent of Zoltán Kodály’s excellent 1915 cello sonata than of the kind of music prevalent in Germany in the ‘50s, which would have been either the influence of Schoenberg or Hindemith. Although Crumb was not yet “really” the Crumb we know from about 1964 onward, it is still a creative piece, occasionally using some light microtonal effects, and played superbly here by the then-39-year-old de Saram. The second movement, with its moving harmonies, borders on the atonal, while in the third Crumb throws in a quite jazzy syncopated rhythm, which de Saram captures perfectly. The rest of his colleagues come from a chamber group formed in 1973 with the express purpose of exploring “music, old and new, from around the world,” Ensemble Dreamtiger, and it figures that I had never heard of them before. If you don’t specialize in the old-timey music that’s been around since Victoria was the Queen of England, you don’t get much promotion.

The process of creating mood in visual art can be relayed by a painter through the use of a range of colours in a particular palate chosen by an artist. There are many ways to create mood in visual art as there are in music, but colour choice can be the overriding instrument that an artist uses to build a particular mood. It’s the same for composers when they choose the instruments for their musical palate. A lot of brass can suggest something bold and a woodwind dominate piece might be suggesting a softer, more subtle mood. The Department aims to give students an understanding of the importance of rigorous practical and intellectual formation in stimulating creative thought and achieving creative expression.
