Lecture MUS 103 April 15, 2009 (about previous stuff) - whole tone scale: maximally invariant, moving up and down, pitches remain the same. Symmetrical, comprised solely of whole tones, used at end of 19 th century to represent something magical - Octotonic scale: alternating whole and half steps/tones, or half and whole tones. Also symmetrical construction, when transposed by certain intervals, all pitches remain the same (tri-tone), but moved by other intervals, you introduce new pitches. So it is periodically invariant. - Scales were quickly disgarded because they became cliché. Stravinsky clung to use of octonoic scale, but others disgarded it. They went back to black and white scales, major and minor scales, old-fashioned tonality. Symbolism, expressionism, and primitism were out. Recreated worlds of bach and Mozart. Music for Children - usually written for adults - 20 th century phenomenon - Works for children to perform, listen to, about children - Neoclassicism Peterand the Wolf (How Pioneer Peter Caught the Wolf) 1936
