The term, developing variation, was introduced by Arnold Schoenberg to describe one of the fundamental compositional principles of the western music in which the technique of modifying and elaborating the initial idea generates all necessary components for the remainder of the piece. The term is often associated with Johannes Brahms because of Schoenberg's celebrated essay "Brahms the Progressive," where the function of developing variation in Brahms' music was convincingly analyzed as being representative of the most advanced form of this technique. Many scholars have since been drawn to the examination of the thematic connections in various works by Brahms, but curiously excluding the works in the form of Theme and Variations, a medium favored by Brahms throughout his life. The present essay examines the developing variation technique in Brahms' early variation sets: op. 9; op. 21, no. 1 and op. 21, no. 2. One of the most crucial finding was the prominence of developing variation in the harmonic aspect in forming the fundamental musical structure in Brahms' music.

Hungarian composer and musician Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967) is best known for his pedagogical system, the Kodály method, which has been influential in the development of music education around the world. For the first time, author Anna Dalos considers Kodály's career beyond the classroom and provides a comprehensive assessment of his works as a composer. In addition to the inspiration of Hungarian folk music, which is commonly ascribed to Kodály's composition, this volume presents his most important musical experiences, including the impact of Brahms, Wagner, Debussy, Palestrina, and Bach. Dalos highlights other decisive, extramusical impulses, such as World War I's bitter experience, Kodály's reception of classical antiquity, and even Kodály's interpretation of the male and female roles in his music. Dalos's impressive knowledge of the twentieth-century composer provides a timely and much-needed English-language treatment of Kodály.

Since its first publication in 1990, Brahms and His World has become a key text for listeners, performers, and scholars interested in the life, work, and times of one of the nineteenth century's most celebrated composers. In this substantially revised and enlarged edition, the editors remain close to the vision behind the original book while updating its contents to reflect new perspectives on Brahms that have developed over the past two decades. To this end, the original essays by leading experts are retained and revised, and supplemented by contributions from a new generation of Brahms scholars. Together, they consider such topics as Brahms's relationship with Clara and Robert Schumann, his musical interactions with the "New German School" of Wagner and Liszt, his influence upon Arnold Schoenberg and other young composers, his approach to performing his own music, and his productive interactions with visual artists. The essays are complemented by a new selection of criticism and analyses of Brahms's works published by the composer's contemporaries, documenting the ways in which Brahms's music was understood by nineteenth- and early twentieth-century audiences in Europe and North America. A new selection of memoirs by Brahms's friends, students, and early admirers provides intimate glimpses into the composer's working methods and personality. And a catalog of the music, literature, and visual arts dedicated to Brahms documents the breadth of influence exerted by the composer upon his contemporaries.

Schoenberg's twelve-tone method of composition has proved to be one of the most enduring and influential ideas in the history of music. Yet until now, little attention has been devoted to the evolution of his method and the refinement of his compositional technique. Drawing upon Schoenberg's papers, sketches, and manuscripts, as well as his scores, this book traces the development of his twelve-tone serial idea from its rudimentary beginnings in 1914 to the highly refined works of his mature period.
