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.

All music is open to interpretation, and unless it is insensitive, there’s nothing wrong with a straightforward reading of the score, particularly in this early stage of Weinberg’s career when his angst was not so keenly felt. What Gražinytė-Tyla does is to “preview” the growing sadness in his music through her interpretation. Or maybe it’s just a matter of Rudolph codifying already-existing forms used by jazz musicians in a new and, to me at least, more complex manner.
