UKARIA 24 | CONCERT FOUR: COUNTERPOINT, MUSIC AND MANKIND

CURATED BY UMBERTO CLERICI


'The definition of counterpoint in music is: "the relationship between two or more musical lines or voices, which are harmonically interdependent yet independent in rhythm and melody."

A definition of music can be: "sounds combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion."

And lastly, one of the definitions of mankind is: "human beings considered collectively."

Relationships combined collectively. To me this is what we all are.

Bach is renowned as the master of polyphony and counterpoint, but not many know that Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev was called "the Russian Bach" and that his teacher – Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – said that he was "the greatest master of counterpoint in Russia."'

– Umberto Clerici
