Articulation and Phrasing

Articulation and Phrasing

(p.138) 4 Articulation and Phrasing
Classical and Romantic Performing Practice 1750-1900

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the ways in which articulation and phrasing were either indicated by the composer, or expected to be provided by the performer on the basis of experience and musicality. Connections between accentuation and articulation are considered. The structural and expressive aspects of musical articulation are related to rhetoric and language in general; this was a view that persisted throughout the period, although the manner in which it was realised may have changed significantly. Approaches to the structural aspect of articulation are explored through comparison of a succession of theoretical treatments of the subject in Sulzer's Allgemeine Theorie der schönen Künste (by J. A. P. Schulz), Türk's Klavierschule, Corri's A Select Collection, Baillot's L'art du violon, García's A New Treatise, Bériot's Méthode de violon, and Joachim and Moser's Violinschule.

Keywords:   structural, expressive, rhetoric, language, Sulzer, Türk, Corri, García, Bériot, Joachim and Moser
