-Question; composed the (meanwhile gone) Simeon ten Holt from Bergen where I
live (Netherlands), really such confronting music or does he possess also something tenderness ('empfindliches') like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? I let see that in a lot of Schuberts pieces still twisting and harsh accords exsists, like Ten Holt used.
Speak as following about music theory and what people do with it in the performing (interpretation).
-Question e.g.; why does Paganini write often in c minor ('lament of the unhappy lover' Schubart says beginning 1800) and in C major? (scale of exaggerated naivety)
-Answer; Paganini was a extreem well violinist. Wrote therefore extreme in feelings;
very complaining against exaggerated happy play.
Tell about how musicians perform music; with help of Quandz's book 'On playing the flute' e.g.. Quandz lived in the Baroque (17e/ 18e century, composer and player of the baroque flute; German flute without flute keys.) Says e.g. in 'On playing the flute' that a 'grace note' (a note before the most important note; the head note) when he is dissonant, has to be played longer. Ugliness is emphasised! (A grace note is an ornament.)
