Stuttgart: Reclam, M9 K An imposing tome, to be sure, with musical examples and 38 pictures, but the extensive commentaries on the operas do not add to previous knowledge.

Brophy studies the texts of the operas, with passing attention to the music. She also deals at length with Don Giovanni, taking gender-based and Freudian approaches. There is an overall concern with 18th-century intel- lectual life and its manifestation in the operas.

Steptoe, Andrew. M95 S Nor is there—despite the title of the book—much said about Da Ponte. Nevertheless, there is a useful summary analysis of the works, with focus on the ensembles, presenting tonal diagrams and other technical approaches.
Footnotes, short bibliography, expansive index. Text also in Italian. Considers the relationship between composer and libret- tist, which had to be more than just congenial and cooperative; after all, there have been many such pairs without special results. And Da Ponte worked with other composers, producing no masterpieces.
What is needed is in-depth study of prosody, verse structure, rhythm, expressiveness, text, and, above all, the scenic dimension. Examples show how Mozart composed a scene in such a way as to exhibit character. Although the concept of director was still taking shape in the 18th century, Mozart played that role; the article explains how he did it. One way was for the music to compel certain stage actions, so that no director had to explicate them.
For instance, in dialogue arias, stage actions are conditioned by the pres- ence or absence of the person being addressed or by direct address to the audi- ence. Noske, Fritz. The Hague: Nijhoff, Reprint, New York: Oxford U.

ISBN Oxford Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart An interesting attempt to apply semiotic critical method to the operatic genre. Unity is not found in formal design but in process, espe- cially the unfolding of melody. Aside from the thesis being pursued—which could be more clear in premise and execution—there are good musical analy- ses of the operas, with references to earlier literature.

Moberly, Robert B. M91 M A sophisticated critique of the libretti, with some allusions to the music. Moberly moves line-by-line through the texts, with illuminating and often entertaining results. For instance, there is the story of Figaro measuring the room, which is told here in remarkable depth.
See Tyson, Webster, James. Taking Kunze as a point of departure, Webster disputes the necessity of text to give shape to the music. Musical events in an aria would be clear and ordered even disregarding the words. He is also concerned about the custom- ary reliance on instrumental forms as a basis for analyzing opera.
The sonata form is actually rare in Mozart. Kunze, Steptoe and others follow this practice, building on Abert and Levarie Why think of numbers as key related when they are separated by recitatives, and by long stretches of time? Is D major the dominant or tonic in the opening of Figaro?

References to previous litera- ture are in 87 footnotes. Numerous insights on this aspect and many others in the two operas. Durante, Sergio. There is little documentation from which to derive a genesis for the opera, but the autograph, sketches, and printed libretto of provide some informa- tion.
The sequence of the writing is revealed in part by study of the paper used watermarks, numbering of the sheets, and so on. The libretto is of uncertain origin: an invention of Da Ponte or an adaptation from? The Viennese context of the times antisentimental gave shape to the libretto. Levarie, Siegmund.
During the opera a rhythmic pattern consisting of a dotted quarter note held fermata followed by an eighth note and quarter note is heard 44 times. The pattern is not limited to any melodic structure. It is a rhythmic leitmotiv. Glasow, E. These fermatas are in various rhythmic patterns, not just in the pattern that concerned. Some interesting ideas—but no explanation of the fermata emerges. Along the way he offers many insights about every- thing else that happens. Goehring, Edmund J. Abert, Hermann. Peter Gellhorn.

Anti-theatricality in twentieth-century opera
Originally published in Danish Copenhagen, But this hovering is a musical trembling. This nameless force is the exuberant joy of life. Brown, Kristi Ann. Bauman, Thomas. Considers how Mozart interpreted the Viennese operatic scene in , as indicated by his letters to his father. The preferred composers there were Paisiello, Salieri, and Gluck. Genesis, traced mostly in the letters, analysis, and many useful observations follow. Mozart intended to write an opera that could represent Germanic ideals and also please Viennese audiences.
His use of so-called Turkish elements repre- sented the barbaric strain in humanity, overcome by the gentle, classical aspect that was to characterize German national opera. With an interesting explica- tion of how Mozart achieves the Turkish mood. Argues that the supposed librettist, Raniero Calzabigi, did not in fact write the text. Suggests, on the basis of recently discovered material, that the real author was Abate Giuseppe Petrosellini. This conclusion has been generally accepted. Hirschberg, Jehoash.
An analysis of the arias and ensembles. They show how Mozart, in his operas, was shifting from the da capo form which he hardly used after to some- thing closer to sonata form. A close examination of the act 3 quartet, considering all musical and textual elements. Mozart Jahrbuch — Issue on Idomeneo. Lucio SillaASO MitridateASO 54 Takes issue with Moberly regarding what Mozart intended as the order of scenes in act 3. The musical evidence, in terms of key sequence, is ambiguous. Tyson describes 13 of them. Chicago: U. M78 L4. The starting point for technical studies of Figaro, this is an outstanding exam- ple of structural analysis.
Tonal design is central—the opera is a binary struc- ture in D major—but all dramatic and musical elements are brought into a convincing unity. Comparisons are made in detail, including tonal schemes. Abbate, Carolyn, and Roger Parker. A study of the opening duettino, usually regarded as a perfect example of words, action, and music in higher unity.
Other examples are given of closure in music but not in text and vice versa. The authors question whether the classical analysis, which assumes a correspondence between words and music, is appropriate. Moberly, Robert, and Christopher Raeburn. Concerns the question of number ordering. But there was one singer for two roles, Bartolo and Antonio, and time was needed for a costume change, so the shift in order was made.
Other plot distur- bances are cited. The same ideas are taken up in Ruf, Wolfgang. Wiesbaden: Steiner, A67 v. Mozart only registers the social climate, without taking sides. In any case, the class matter is in the libretto only; music cannot express it. Melodic characterization is really mood painting. Schneider, Otto. An annotated list of writings on the opera, useful despite a crowded narra- tive format. Eckelmeyer, Judith A.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Lewiston, N. Mellen, M95 E Considers key progession in the overture as an intrinsic part of the opera. Tries to align events to illustrate dialectic form; e. This idea is pressed into sonata-allegro form, and a schematic table is worked out. Eckelmeyer gives some interesting binary relations of plot, similar to those of Levarie in Figaro Batley, E. M95 B Then a chapter on the disputes over authorship of the libretto and a chapter on its unifying features.
The authorship question turns on the claim of Brigid Brophy that the libretto was a collaboration with Karl Ludwig Giesecke—Brophy following Otto Jahn and Edward Dent in this matter. Getting into the plot, Batley deals exhaustively with the problematic characters of the Queen of the Night and Sarastro, who appear to undergo transformations. Her good qualities are steadily diminished until her only function is to symbolize darkness and evil.
Freyhan, Michael. Contempo- rary sources are carefully examined from this perspective. Chailley, Jacques. Paris: Robert Laffort, M8 C A long account of the libretto, bringing out every possible Masonic symbol.
Index of names, titles, and topics. The latter was imagined by its creators, Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, to share the atmosphere of the former. Discusses parallels between Papageno and Tamino, but a more subtle relation- ship is found between Papageno and Pamina. From similar experiences the two have basically different outcomes: she reaches maturity, he parodies her with light and foolish songs as she sings of her separation from Pamino.
The key scheme elucidates this. Godwin, Jocelyn. Horwath, Peter. The septagram refers to the Grand Lodge of Austria there were seven regional lodges. With 67 foot- notes to the relevant literature. Recognition scenes are frequent in 18th-century opera indeed, in all opera. This opera is about light and dark: movement toward the light of knowledge.
And is Tamino the protago- nist? Witzenmann, Wolfgang. Witzenmann examines the Italian sources in Dresden, Milan, Naples, Florence, and Rome and compares them to the published Italian libretti of and Three Italian translations are also compared. All the sources are described in great bibliographic detail with references to the total literature in footnotes. See also Moberly , Heartz , and Brown Thea Musgrave — Hixon, Donald.
