Sample text

In terms of unordered content, all versions of this motive are expressions of a 014 trichord, or pitch-class set 3-3 in Allen Forte's terminology. 13 The four trichords of P o appear also in R 6 (in the order 2-1—4—3), in RI 7 (in the order 3-4-1-2) and in U (in the order 4—3-2-1). They appear as well, of course, backwards and in reverse order in the retrogrades of these four permutations. Webern wrote to Hildegardjone about this row on 11 March 1931: I have found a 'row' (that's the 12 notes) that contains already in itself very extensive relationships (of the 12 notes amongst themselves).

There is no verticalization of more than two notes; however, a single note followed by a major seventh or a minor ninth dyad is a characteristic motive, occurring in bars 12, 14, 25, 35, 36(a and b) and 39. A pair of dyads — a minor ninth followed by a perfect fourth — appears in both voices of the canon in bars 32 and 33. It is characteristic of Webern that, although the possibilities for movement by semitones abound in this work, hardly any semitones actually appear, this interval nearly always being expressed as a minor ninth or a major seventh.

Po: R6: RI 7 : Ii: 1 2 3 4 2 1 4 3 3 4 4 3 1 2 2 1 4 3 3 4 2 1 1 2 2 1 4 3 1 2 3 4 :R 0 :P6 :I7 :RIi Naturally, if the three notes of each trichord are verticalized, Po and RIi are identical, Po and P6 share a hexachord, and so on. Other, less complete, identities are also present in this matrix. For example, t w o notes of every trichord are identical in rows related as In to P o Po: In: B Bb D Bt> B G E G Ftt D B Ek At O E F F E C A O At A C B D & G Bi. B B G At F E A F Ab C O O C A E or as I3 to Po Po: I3: Bl, D B B A large number of rows will be found to have one note of each trichord in common with the corresponding trichord of PQ.
