 Epilogue: Morning Song

Show Summary Details


This epilogue analyzes one of Schumann's late piano works, the third of the Gesänge der Frühe (Morning Songs) op. 133. Although, as in most of Schumann's late works, there is much less metrical dissonance than in the works from the period before 1850, that device is a significant and pervasive feature of the movement.

Keywords: metrical dissonance; Schumann; late piano works

Chapter.  853 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Music Theory and Analysis
