New Classical music
The type of music the guest speaker plays is reminiscent of impressionism in the way
that it evokes feelings/images
Polyrhythm:
Ex: A 3 and a 2 rhythm at the same time:
Different rhythms fall in and out of synchronization
A Hudson Cycle, Nico Muhly
Polyrhythm stands out; abstract
Keyboard of the Winds, Stacy Garrop
Left hand swirling gestures mimics the whirling wind
Jumbled, blurry, etc; has texture
very distinctive quality; it’s the materiality (effect) of the sound and
not necessarily the pitch
Tumultuous right hand of the rocks, summits of the mountains,
Melody stands out; Invocative, more narrative than the first
Lack of set form, as with a lot of new classical music
Virtuosic: showing technical prowess
The Currents (2013), Sarah Kirkland Snider
Focuses on sharp attention to detail and narrative
Inspired by set of poems “The Unremembered”
Underlying layer of currents with melody on top
Uses added harmonies; added notes in a chord that don’t belong, in this case it
is gentle and subtle rather than jarring or jolting; resembles tonal music
New classical music, unlike old classical music, isn't very tonality based;
very ambiguous keys, mix of major, minor, no set progression
First Ballade, Judd Greenstein
Elements of Bach, Ravel, Tyner, Hopkins, Chopin
No direct musical quotes, but has a quotational feel (narrative quality)
Plays around with anticipated harmonies
She Steals Me, Carter Pann
Beautiful lyrical piece
Hommage a Toi, Mark Olivieri

Ex: a 3 and a 2 rhythm at the same time: Different rhythms fall in and out of synchronization. Left hand swirling gestures mimics the whirling wind. Very distinctive quality; it"s the materiality (effect) of the sound and not necessarily the pitch. Tumultuous right hand of the rocks, summits of the mountains, Melody stands out; invocative, more narrative than the first. Lack of set form, as with a lot of new classical music. Focuses on sharp attention to detail and narrative. Underlying layer of currents with melody on top. Uses added harmonies; added notes in a chord that don"t belong, in this case it is gentle and subtle rather than jarring or jolting; resembles tonal music.
