This paper specifically addresses linkage, a characteristically Brahmsian technique employed in the formation of musical ideas through the gradual transformation of precedent elements, being considered an indicator in the use of developing variation. After a detailed review of the literature encompassing definitions, classification and exemplification considering works of three theorists FRISCH, RAHN,an original proposal for a typology of linkage is presented.
Linkage; violin sonatas op. Um caso especial de linkage na Sonata para Violino op.
Meaning of “Almada” in the Portuguese dictionary
Sonatas para violino op. T his paper integrates an ongoing PhD research intended to comparatively analyze the thematic structures of two almost identical contemporary violin sonatas: A previous study MAYR, found a strong positive correlation between the eight themes of op.
Moreover, the study demonstrated that most of the thematic structures could be explained analytically as having been derived from the gradual transformation of a group of six basic elements present in the first four bars. Such circumstances denote the employment of organic and economic means in the construction of the piece. The present proposal aims to further this investigation by taking into account the linkage technique.
This paper is structured in four main sections, each focusing on a specific issue: Theoretical antecedents For Leonard Meyer Essentially, the organicist conception can be defined as an artistic creation that models biological growth.
In music, organic construction corresponds to the economic structural development of related material derived from a basic group of musical elements. Ideally, the whole substance of an organically constructed piece themes, accompaniment, contrasting and subsidiary ideas, etc.
Chovendo na roseira by Tom Jobim: a Schenkerian approach
During the s, Arnold Schoenberg elaborated two principles that aimed to describe and formalize the process of organic construction in music, namely, developing variation and Grundgestalt. In a well-known essay entitled Brahms the Progressive, published in the book Style and Idea In organic construction, the Grundgestalt becomes a referential unity for material production through developing variation techniques.
As defined by Ethan Haimo, Developing variation is a special category of variation technique, one that implies a teleological process. As a result, later events — even markedly contrasting ones — can be understood as originate from, or grow out of, changes that carlso made in the repetitions of early musical unities. Therefore, true developing variation can be distinguished from purely local varied repetitions that have no developmental consequences.
Developing variation offers the possibility of forward motion, permitting the creation of new or contrasting but still related ideas, while local variation affects only the passage in question HAIMO, As it can be observed, it basically consists of a recursive process of variation over variation, resulting in generations of derived forms a, b, c,…which in turn becomes referential forms for further derivation.
In this manner, even the most contrasting musical ideas as indicated by Haimo’s quotation may be obtained. Slmada representation of the principles of developing variation and Grundgestalt. Developing variation is related to different kinds of techniques and procedures, among them linkage is certainly the most important. Linkage is a relatively lesser-known resource of Schenkerian analysis compared to others, like unfolding, register transfers, progressions, initial ascents, and so onbeing simply omitted in some referential texts on However, as it can be demonstrated in texts written by some of the first followers of Schenker’s amlada for instance, Oswald Jonas3 and Sylvan Kalib4the motive was not completely absent from his harmoonia.
Considered by Frisch and Smith as a distinctly Brahmsian constructive procedure, the employment of linkage for generating new themes from preceding motives can be viewed as one of the most efficient manners to provide continuous and organic growth in a musical piece. Graphical representation of linkage in the connection of two musical ideas.

Forte and GilbertPankhurst 3 Jonas was Schenker’s pupil. Inhe emigrated to America just after publishing Das Wesen des musikalischen Kunstwerks: With his vuncional Felix Salzer, also a student of Schenker and a fugitive from Nazism, he founded the Schenker Institute at the University of California.
Both are considered largely responsible for the extraordinary expansion of Schenker’s ideas in American academia. Jonas’ and Kalib’s comments on the concept in this section. Three analytical works provided the main references for the present approach according to its main objective, namely, to evidence the correlations between the technique of linkage and developing variation: Although each one of these studies basically discuss the same concept, they each address specific and particular aspects of the subject and in this way are mutually complementary.
Frisch’s book departs from Schoenberg’s comments in the previously mentioned essay Brahms the Progressive. The further-reaching results of Frisch’s analyses is undoubtedly the precise identification of these procedures, carls which the linkage technique is certainly the almda important.
In spite of not formally identifying it as a technique, Schoenberg perceives the use of linkage in an analysis of Brahms’ String Quartet op. It is noteworthy to add that Schoenberg employed linkage to his own music two examples of its application will be presented later in this paper. In his text, Frisch analyzes various passages of Brahms’ works distributed along his creative trajectory. In an early work, the Piano Sonata op. Themes 1a, 1b and 1a’. As it can be observed in Ex. Throughout his book, Frisch points to several other applications of linkage that are increasingly more sophisticated in treatment.
As shown in Ex. Interestingly, this new theme replaces the original secondary theme introduced in the exposition. Peter Smith proposes a refinement of Frisch’s study about linkage. With the aid apmada analytical tools adapted from a Schenkerian analysis, Smith examines different instances of linkage in a varied group of Brahms’ pieces and in two cases of Beethoven compositions, as well.
However, his main contribution to the subject is certainly the conceptual expansion of the scope of linkage, by considering three domains of application: Introducing his point of view, Smith affirms that What has not been well recognized. In the rhythmic dimension, this enhancement may involve either akmada change in the hypermetric position of a linking motive or the migration of that motive in relation to the notated meter.
In the harmonic dimension, the magical effect7 of association might engage continuity of a vertical sonority even as the verticality involved undergoes a shift in structural meaning. From Smith’s words, we can deduce that structural reinterpretation is a common attribute of the three kinds of linkage and that its main consequence is to provide continuity in an economic way.
The differences between the harmonic and rhythmic cases are properly elicited through the manner in which they are accomplished. Its omission from the formula weakens the tonic arrival and the sense of change contributing to fluent continuity. funconal
As can be observed in the passage that antecedes the recapitulation of the main theme m. Fnucional contributes to the fluency of the musical narrative being, therefore, perfectly adjusted to the idea of linkage according to Smith’s conception8.
Beethoven — Piano Sonata op. On a higher level, this is considered also harmonnia hypermetrical organization. This aspect is perfectly represented in the finale of Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G minor.
As pointed by Smith, in this movement Brahms manipulates the metrical structure of a dyad F -G in several different ways. Thus, 8 Even though funcilnal can undoubtedly be considered an example of harmonic linkage, one cannot disregard other elements that contribute to the intended compositional effect aalmada complementary factors: This discussion will be returned later during the classification of types of linkage.
In other words, by exploring both local and global hypermetrical possibilities for organization, Carlow obtains continuous structural reinterpretation for a single unity, carls contributes to a notable economic construction.
Steven Rahn investigates an attractive and original perspective on linkage, addressing the correlations between musical and literary narratives. In his first chapter, Rahn examines the origins of the concept, taking as reference studies on Schenkerian analysis. In a passage from a book written by Oswald Jonas, linkage is firmly associated to the concept of musical almxda that must be attained through harmojia repetition. After adding comments about Smith’s study, Rahn presents his reflections in regards to linkage by arguing that temporal sequence increases in complexity and new meaning may emerge when the ending of a musical phrase simultaneously functions as the beginning of the subsequent phrase.
A facet to linkage that has yet to be explored, in conjunction with narrative, is the manner in which the technique can produce confusion and disorientation and the expressive implications therein.
While composers often use linkage to achieve formal haronia, the technique can also cause temporal disruption RAHN, Aiming to deepen and to support this original point of view, the second chapter of the dissertation addresses the use of linkage as a powerful narrative device in the Robbe-Grillet’s novel.
Musical application of the results obtained from the literary analysis is the focus of chapter three with the exam of the two Brahms pieces. Rahn initiates the discussion with the almaa that, while Smith is only concerned with instrumental music, his approach aims to demonstrate that linkage is also subordinate to poetic expression, especially in Brahms’s songs RAHN, Considering the specific case of Liebesglut he affirms: Rather than resolution, defeat and resignation characterize the conclusion of the work.
In his long analyzes 20 pagesRahn presents three instances of linkage, each one oriented by a musical parameter: According to the author, all three moments are put into the service of elements present in the poem’s plot and associated to literary strategies evidenced almzda his second chapterthus musically illustrating concepts like disruption, evasion and confusion. Considering the discussion in this literature review, it is possible to enlist the followings conclusions: This can be caused by frustrating harmonic expectancies omission of chords, use of inversions, etc.
Based on these points, the next section presents an original proposal of a typology for linkage, aiming to contribute to the systematization and refinement of this subject. Linkage typology An ideal typology would be able to precisely describe a given occurrence of linkage considering three aspects: Since the latter aspect cannot always be easily determined especially considering a local analysisit seems reasonable at least, at the time of this study to funciona a simpler version of the typology encompassing only the first two aspects.
In hybrid cases, when two or three types are combined, the corresponding letters should be noted together, with the most salient fubcional taking first position in the formula.
Thus, returning to Beethoven’s Sonata op.

The level of linkage is determined by the importance of the formal position to which it is associated. It can be external level 1 when it occurs within a boundary of two sections and different thematic ideas, in the case of melodic linkage or internal level 2 when it is positioned inside a given section while almost always connecting phrases or segments of a theme.
Though level 1 corresponds to the general case represented by the scheme of Fig. The first application is found inside the secondary theme of the First Chamber Symphony op. Schoenberg — Chamber Symphony op. Example of linkage of level 2. As can be observed, the concluding segment of the theme is initiated by an almost strict restatement of the last motivic fragment in a different harmonic and metric context.
Schoenberg — Theme of Orchestral Variations op.
