Dallapiccola's Second Thoughts: the Epilogue to the Concerto per la notte di Natale dell'anno 1956

Title:
Dallapiccola's Second Thoughts: the Epilogue to the Concerto per la notte di Natale dell'anno 1956
Authors:
Alegant, Brian
Abstract:
Dallapiccola revised his Concerto per la notte di Natale dell'anno 1956, a five-movement work for soprano and sixteen instruments, shortly after completing it. He made small changes to the first, second and fourth movements, bigger changes in the middle movement and extensive changes in the last movement (Epilogue). Building on the work of previous scholars, I re-examine the two versions of this Epilogue, paying particular attention to row handling, rhythm and texture on the small scale, and the pervasive use of symmetry on the large scale. The analysis paints a fuller picture of the Concerto and provides insight into Dallapiccola's idiosyncratic harmonic praxis and his fondness for palindromic frames.
