(p. xvi) (p. xvii) List of Music Examples

(p. xvi) (p. xvii) List of Music Examples

  1. 3.1 Melody of “Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!” (George Root, 1864) and that of “Do You Hear the People Sing?” (Les Misérables, Act II). The latter has been put in the same key as the former in order to aid comparison. 64

  2. 3.2 Harmonies in “Vissi d’arte,” Tosca, Act II and “The Point of No Return,” Phantom, Act II. The latter has been raised a tone to aid comparison. 66

  3. 3.3 Melody of “Come to Me, Bend to Me,” Brigadoon, Act I and “Music of the Night,” Phantom, Act I. 66

  4. 8.1 Handel, Orlando (1733). Angelica-Orlando duet. Without changing tempo, Handel sounds two opposite affects in succession, contrasting them through melody and orchestration. 184

  5. 8.2 Berlioz, Benvenuto Cellini (1837). Act II Finale. This brief excerpt from a concertato shows the transition to the allegro assai. Here Berlioz depicts the tumult of the crowd following the assassination of the Capuchin, at the moment when time is slowed through a succession of three fermatas. 189

  6. 8.3 Wagner, Das Rheingold (1854). Gewitterzaubermotif (storm-magic motif), associated with Donner’s call for the storm. 196

  7. 8.4 Johann Sebastian Bach, St. Matthew Passion (1727). “Laßt ihn, haltet, bindet nicht!” from No. 27a “So ist mein Jesus nun gefangen.” Here we see Bach’s layering of two opposing affects between the two soloists (compassion) and the crowd (indignation). 200
