Leo Brouwer: Paisaje cubano con lluvia | Cristián Alvear

Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. My personal interpreta”on of how these modali”es are contained in llvia piece can be found in Hgure 7. In this sense, the piece under scru”ny calls for an in-depth evalua”on of the material in terms of hegemonic versus non-hegemonic cultures that given the main subject of this beouwer, unfortunately, I will not discuss at length.

Fortunately enough, there has been a growing proclivity—although no”ceably faint—that directly addresses issues of this sort star”ng with the work of eighteenth century music theorists such as Johann Ma3heson, Francesco Galeazzi, and Johann Friedrich Daubepar”cularly with ma3ers related to the “persistent concern with a shadowy linguis”c analogy” Agawu In a similar fashion, I am willing to posit that semio”cs can provide a complacent method that compensates for the communica”on gap generated by the use of verbal ac”vity as means of conveying musical informa”on and meaning.

But as men”oned above, there is ambiguity in terms of a speciHc func”on assigned to each line. One could interpret the concept of isotopies as the elements that provide the context for a work to be understood comprehensively.

Unsayable Music, Six Re5ec! As Chagas explains, “Music refers to itself, and to the speciHc culture – the speciHc “me and space in which it emerges. Oxford University Press, accessed October 25, h3p: This is also an indexical characteris”c that will later be discussed, as it concerns Vrouwer theory.

Second and consequently, it must explain the constraints aNec”ng organiza”on at the highest level– levels of sentence, paragraph, chapter, and beyond. In addi”on, given the plurality of musical styles present nowadays, and our overall consciousness and knowledge of musical composi”onal processes, there is also a need for a system that reaches beyond the technological and historical areas.


In fact, the parts oQen seem to overlap crea”ng an intricate textural web that gives the allusion of mul”ple drops of water falling at aleatoric rates.

It is along these lines that this case study can be jus”Hed, as it can brohwer be explained to work under a logical, e4cient framework, which on its own is moderated by its contextual correla”ve. You can check the complete license agreement in the following link: It is then possible to convey musical informa”on, or the inner logic of music, through verbal brower if its signiHcance is replicated within a par”cular culture.

This idea is be3er explained by using the study of literature if one considers music as a narra”ve art that is as a parallel example: Then, depending on whether we locate it paiszje a certain nota”onal representa”on, or in a speciHc realiza”on, or in an idealiza”on of that realiza”on, or in the interface of a speciHc realiza”on and the listener’s idealiza”on, or in the composer’s idealized realiza”on – we should go on to develop the appropriate deHni”onal apparatus.

Accordingly, Paisaje Cubano con Lluvia being wri3en in falls into the la3er category. If there is an impossibility of communica”on then how should one proceed? Taras” employs concepts developed by several semio”cians including Peirce, Saussure, and Greimas, and adapts them to work under a musical framework.

In a strictly Peircian sense, however, an icon is simply a sign that resembles an object. However, one cannot simply exclude the fact that the piece gradually evolves into a more dissonant and unstable en”ty. I cuubano now shiQ direc”on and provide a brief analysis of the piece by using the Peircian concepts of index, icon and symbol.

However, this is a deliberate approach as he considers that music will reveal its “true” form by employing a “soQer” lluva that deals with a hermeneu”cal-philosophical discourse Taras” As we will see, this element of “na”onalis”c” abstrac”on will be conspicuously evident in Paisaje Cubano con Lluvia. The dichotomy then is presented between the very metric Hrst measures, in which there is no room for a rubato-type of interpreta”on, and the highly organized but aurally looser cln of the sec”on paiwaje above.

It exists when it is recognized as signiHer by all members of a linguis”c community, and when it calls forth for each individual roughly cubanno same associa”ons and opposi”ons. There are addi”onal isotopies present in the work.


Firstly, as men”oned before, an icon deals with isomorphisms that give a literal aural depic”on of an object. Even further, once this aural depic”on is governed by conven”on, it becomes a symbol, which can either show iconic or nrouwer features. Another indexical moment can be found in the opening sec”on. In very general terms, one relates the aesthe”cs of Cuban music with na”onalis”c traits that are always present in tradi”onal music and that derive from the Afro-Cuban tradi”on. Even though, in the score there is a great deal of control, even in the “looser” sec”ons that have no metric indica”on see Hgure 3, and 4; rehearsal le3ers F and Gllluvia the listener may perceive a “ghter rhythmic unit during the opening sec”on, but as the piece unfolds, it becomes more elas”c.

Finally, the opening bars from the A sec”on are brought back as a coda, perhaps symbolizing the last moments of what appears to be the end of this Cuban storm.

No la u”lice para Hnes comerciales y no haga con ella obra derivada. In the case of Brouwer’s Paisaje Cubano con Lluvia, one can iden”fy several isotopies. It is not allowed to use the work for commercial purposes and you may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.

However, it may just be paisaej simple allusion as to how the composer imagines or soniHes the sound of rain while living in Cuba. What a beau”ful thing it would be if Brahms had wri3en a guitar concerto! Indiana University Press, Given the brief nature of this document, I will not go into extensive detail when discussing these modali”es. It is important to denote that given the nature of these concepts striving to Hnd a universal system that describes language in a truthful and accurate mannerthere might be some overlapping of the content described by using Greimas’ theory.

In this par”cular passage, Brouwer’s choice of calid diatonicism, with the addi”on of the performer’s ability to play these single notes with a warm and round tone, can be indexical of the warm weather experienced in a place lluva Cuba.
