Abstract:
Analyzing the twelve-tone compositions of Shostakovich often requires the application of various analytical procedures. This study examines Shostakovich's Suite for Voice and Piano, Op. 143, focusing on the two twelve-tone songs in the Suite. While the songs exhibit some traditional treatment of twelve-tone rows, the study focuses on Shostakovich's unique manipulations and the integration of tonal elements and chromaticism. An innovative analytical tool developed by Dr. Stephen Brown (NAU) is utilized in the study, as it provides clarity and strengthens otherwise weak associations. Along with the application of Brown's dual interval space, the study includes twelve-tone analysis and traditional harmonic analysis to provide a more comprehensive analysis of the Suite.
