developments in 20th-century music 1. Use of music from folk and popular sources 2. Use of music from outside one’s own culture (Javanese gamelan) 3. Use of jazz 4. Abandonment of traditional major/minor tonal system 5. Abandonment of regular meters 6. Abandonment of “normal” composition techniques 7. Recording technology 8. Composer’s focus changes from pleasing an audience/public to creating music they like, regardless of anyone else (composer/audience alienation) 9. Music often VERY difficult, which means it often doesn’t get performed (M’s Saint François is very expensive, and also large, which explains why it’s only had two staged performances, plus the upcoming one in San Francisco this fall or next winter) impressionism -the idea is to create an impression, rather than depict an image. Berlioz gives you a clear program in his Symphonie fantastique . Debussy, rather than tell you what to hear, suggests it. For example, in his piano Preludes, he lists the title at the end of the piece rather than at the beginning because he wants you to have the freedom to concoct your own impression. -in painting (Monet), not everything is outlined precisely, as in his Impression, Sunrise (1874). -the musical movement is a bit behind the artistic/literary one. Monet’s Sunrise appears in 1874, at which point Debussy was 12 years old. Musically, impressionism begins in the 1890s. Claude Debussy (1862-1918)
