"Ha'azinu: Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! And let the earth hear the words of my mouth!." The first piece starts "quasi niente" ("pppp": as soft as possible). The powerful words that open Haazinu are transcribed here as soft as possible. The movement includes wild contrasts. Very tender lines alternate with strong and resounding chords which also alternate with dry, short and harsh note-clusters. More than once one have the main tone-series deployed as "Moses speech" in either a baritone range or as "reflected from the skies" in very high registers. It concludes again with a polyphony as in the opening, yet this time more dense and built with the deployment of the main series in several ranges simultaneously. The main series of the entire series, used as it is in pieces number one and seven, favors intervals of perfect four and chromatic steps. The P4 interval represents the perfect harmony and the chromatic step, specially downwards has always been the representation of lament and fall. [read more: okonsar.com]show more
