Pindaric Accompaniments

(p.126) 10 Pindaric Accompaniments

W. B. Henry

Oxford University Press

The performance of Pindar's epinician odes has been much discussed of late, in particular the question whether the odes were composed for a vocal soloist or for a choir. But the instrumental accompaniments have received comparatively little attention. This chapter considers the evidence to be found in the texts of the odes themselves concerning the instruments used. It suggests that a metrical observation may enable us to make some progress.

Keywords:   Pindar, epinician odes, instrumental accompaniments
