Studies on Articulation in German Romantic Organ Music 1800-1850. With a supplement on Registration Practice.

Dissertation in musical performance and interpretation, 2007.


The starting point of this study concerns the problems connected to articulation and phrasin in early nineteenth-century organi music. It is generally accepted tha legato was the basic articulation of the romantic period, and the aim os on one hand to describe the legato of the early nineteenth centuries, and on the other hand, to determine what features in the music could guide different types of articulation in a score with no articulation signs. Another problem concerns slurring and the study will try to generate some alternative solutions to existing ones.

Early nineteenth-century Germany saw the emergence of a vast number of organ schools and it is a representative selection of these organ schools that that constitute the basic source material for the study. The information that was gained from these sources was also applied to relevant music from the period, and in this way brought forward as important vehicles in an artistic performance presented on a CD-recording.

This is thesis no 4 in the ArtMonitor dissertation series.
