Meister Eckhardt and Quackie.
The next morning, Adams conceived the opening of the piece, the explosive propellant for his own symphonic rocket, which was a commission from the San Francisco Symphony for a large-scale work. Double-codedness simply does not allow it; neither the double-codedness of postmodern practice nor the double-codedness of late 20th-century experience. As intertextual beings we are denied the unity of experience of the past.
Baudrillard observes that we all live our lives in quotation marks, as if we were playing a part in a movie , and Kramer writes rather wistfully: As social saturation proceeds we become pastiches, imitative assemblages of each other. In Harmonielehre Adams longs to express, to be the depth of the 19th-century symphonies and symphonists. He calls up the ghosts of Sibelius, Mahler and Wagner, even if within quotation marks and the saturated signs and semantics of the present.
But he does not succeed, any more than Disneyland convinces us that our real lives are real see Baudrillard , Harmonielehre is, in the final analysis, a simulation of the Romantic heroic work, and of the once vivid crisis around the representation of western art music as it emerged in Barthes, R.

Perspectives of New Music 40 1 , Harmonielehre is symphonic both in formal scope and in its far-ranging, colourful use of a large orchestra.
The piece unfolds in a broad three-part design. Characteristically, Adams evolves forms uniquely suited to his musical materials, using an arch form framed by powerful waves of energy for the first and longest movement. Stark, violent chords of E minor set the piece in motion.
These were prompted by yet another dream, recalls Adams, who was notably influenced by Jungian psychology at the time. But one constant is the inherently dramatic sensibility that Peter Sellars had identified in Adams early on and which revitalizes the venerable genre of the concerto in Scheherazade.
The other spur for Scheherazade. Scheherazade is of course a beautiful woman newly married to a vengeful Sultan who vows to have each of his wives slain after their wedding night — his bloodthirsty habit intended as punishment meted out to all women for having once been deceived by a lover.
Or the young Iranian student, Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot to death while attending a peaceful protest in Teheran. Or women routinely attacked and even executed by religious fanatics in any number of countries — India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, wherever. This is the sense in which Scheherazade. It is not, Adams points out, intended as a commentary on the Rimsky-Korsakov work. At the same time, the composer expresses frustration over the tendency to reduce Scheherazade.Linda Hutcheon praises double-coding as a way of bringing meaning to radically intertextual art.
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. From fairly early on in its history tonality was treated as though it had representational powers, and thus the ability to express the emotions and even depict certain movements and objects: the Baroque Doctrine of Affects codified certain representations as relating to particular emotions, and word painting was elaborate and conventional; in the late 19th-century composers like Liszt, Wagner and Richard Strauss developed sophisticated motivic strategies to accord music a semantics and narrative which are not its inherent property.
Adams writes with genuinely symphonic complexity for his large orchestra — with the sonority of the cimbalom or hammered dulcimer adding its distinctive flavor — while giving full prominence to the solo violin. Although he was to fall foul of ecclesiastical politics towards the end of his life, he was and is regarded as a great religious philosopher, renowned also for lectures in which he made extensive use of vivid visual imagery. Jazzy, slow, fast, loud, soft — all those differences are important to me.
