From The Critics
In The Philosopher's Stone: Essays In The Transformation Of Music Structure, Barbara Berry presents intriguing commentaries on a spectrum of classical music in four major sections. Dialects of Form in Nineteenth Century Music (Image and Imagination in Schumann's G. Minor Sonata; Dialectical Structure in Action: The Scherzo of Beethoven's F Major Razoumovsky Quartet Reconsidered; Reciprocity and Reconstruction: The Hidden Program in Mahier's Fifth Symphony); Mozart Through the Looking Class (The Spider's Stratagem: The Motif of Masking in Don Giovanni; Debt and Transfiguration: Mozart's 'Haydn' quartets by Way of Haydn's Op. 33; Inversional Symmetry in The Magic Flute); Beethoven Studies (Pitch Interpretation and Cyclical Procedures in MiddlePeriod Beethoven; Teleology and Structural Determinants in Beethoven's CSharp Minor Quartet, Op. 131; Recycling the End of the Leibquartet: Models, Meaning and Propriety in Beethoven's Quartet in BFlat Major, Opus 130); Cyclical Form: The Retracing of a Journey ('Sehnsucht' and Melancholy: Explorations of Time and Structure in Schubert's Winterreise; Eternal Return in Das Lied von der Erde; Stockhausen's "plusMinus": Autobiography as Criticism in the Comet's Tail of the AvantGarde). An important contribution to academic music reference and library collections, Barry's informative, scholarly, erudite commentaries highly recommended reading for students of classical music and music history.
