This book is simply a compilation from the p ri ncipal contemporary treatises (chiefly those published in French) in which the most significant definitions and opinions have been selected in such a way as to present today's reader—as far as is possible—with a synthesis of this famous `good taste' in interpretation.

A.L.732 . j\'otes must not appear to be glued together. it is necessary to soften the attack and release. As Engramelle makes clear. .. my use of the term articulatory silences in music refers to every such hiatus. and the length of the silence will depend on the duration of the sound ( . as it were. depending on the character of the note. the part which I call silent is always at the end. • In the following two pieces one must try to respect an articulatory silence after each note. . In the Sarabande. each note should be shortened by a silence whose length will vary according to the duration of the note and the character of the piece. no matter how beautiful. ) In performance every note. Sustaining will be more. is partly sustained and partl y silent. each note should be rounded: for this.. we give an approximate transcription of the articulatory silences as they ought to be (it will be seen how complicated the notation becomes' In the subsequent Allemande. and even those of equal value are in some cases to be interpreted in quite different ways ( . tivithout articulatory silences would have no more grace than a folksong from Poitou played on insipid musettes which produce only blusterous. (Quantz) Engramelle explains this practice in detail: Notes in the music (i. one distinguishes between sustained notes and those called broken (`tacté'): sustained notes sound for the greater part of their value and their silences are cbnsequently extremely short. and a piece of music. that is to say.. without them these could not be detached from one another. so that only the touch (`tact') of the notes is indicated.e. ) These silences at the end of each note define. these latter apply equally to faster pieces. but their true lengths and the value of their silences which are integral to them and serve to detach them from one another are not shown by any sign ( ) However in performance they are not all realised in the same manner. when added to the sustained sound. and are then shortened in proportion to the duration of the notes. . ) There are not even strokes ofa trill that are not separated by very short tiny gaps between the rise and fall of the fingers upon the keys. This `aeration' between the notes is called an articulatory silence.25. French or otherwise. that is practised in performance but is difficult to notate (as are most other rules of interpretation). but without playing in too dry or `piqué' (spiccato) a manner. This is a general principle in old music. notation) indicate very precisely the total value of each note. or less long. gives the total value. broken notes on the other hand are those in which the sustaining is very short. from which no note is exempt. To sum up what Engramelle says in another way. avoiding any sharp cut-off. and they are consequently concluded by a considerable silence ( . it has a given duration of silence which. its articulation and are as important as the sounds themselves.

For notes with dashes. the word detach implies a dot or dash on each note: (1) The dots signifying 'detached notes' should not be confused with similar dots signifying 'equal notes'. dashes sometimes indicate a more marked articulation than dots: When there are dots above the notes oYe must play them with a very short pressure or bow-stroke which should not.732 . and not detach them. composers might ask for more markedly detached notes in certain pieces. it is indicated by dots or little dashes (2) above those notes which should only be half heard. (Méthode raisonnée pour apprendre la musique. Bordet explains: One must use a sharp attack (piquer) and cut off the sound of each note regardless of its value. When this detached articulation is not expressed by rests as in the preceding example. 20. Detaching the notes is when one divides a note into two others of equal value and pitch. all the notes must be taken in one bow.13 In a group of slurred notes.

In this case they would spell it out in words or indicate it with short dashes (or sometimes dots (1) ) over the note-heads. the final one is not exempt from the rule concerning articulatory silences. and each one marked with a pressure on the bow: Bordet defines the latter as pearled notes: one must simply increase the sound of each dotted note under the sign (slur). (Quantz) Quantz adds: If there is also an arch (slur) above the dots. For all that.L. (2) Marpurg does not seem to establish any distinction between dots and dashes (short lines. . be really detached. of which only the first is made to sound: Here the rest takes the place of the second note.

Rousseau defines variations thus: Under this name one designates every manner of decorating and varying an air. Ornaments are therefore the variations added (by the composer or the performer) to the melodic line. called the `simple'. 33. which is a sort of embellishment of the melody. which is how we have described the little discretionary notes. of which Loulié gives the following definitions: Passages' are many little sounds that are interwoven amongst the simple grace notes. . whether by diminution or by 'passages' or other embellishments to adorn and embroider it.

The word variations encompasses the terms doubles.

If there t a dot after the second note, in an Adagio the first note must be played as shortly as in an Allegro, but without as much force:

GRAVE A Sostenuto, which is the opposite of Staccato and which consists simply in a well sustained, serious and harmonious melody, in which there are many dotted notes which must be slurred in twos, is normally headed with the word Grave; for this reason it must be played with a long, weighty bow-stroke. A Grave, in which the melody consists of dotted notes, should be played in an elevated, lively manner (... ) The dotted notes must be swelled as far as the dot, and they must be softly and briefly slurred onto the following notes, unless the interval is too large. For very distant leaps, each note must be stressed separately. If such notes rise or fall by step, the long notes, which are most often consonances and cduld ultimately displease the ear, may be preceded by a port-de-voix. (1)






ADAGIO SPIRITOSO An Adagio Spiritoso is most often composed in triple time with dotted notes, its melody being often interrupted; and the expression requires even more vivacity than we have requested (for the Grave). For this reason the notes should be stressed more than slurred, and fewer grace notes should be used. Above all, ports-de-voix which finish with half-shakes may be used (2) ; but when some cantabile ideas are found amongst the rest one must adapt one's performance to these as well, mingling the serious' with the charming in alternation.


(... ),

*fl ow'

If many conjunctly rising or falling semiquavers are found in a Cantabile or Arioso in ), one must strive to express these sorts of notes in a simple triple quaver metre (3/8) ( and charming way, sotnetimes using `piano' and sometimes 'forte'. If leaping quavers are interspersed, rendering the melody dry and failing to sustain it, leaps of a third can be filled up with ports-de-voix or triplets. But when tize bass has notes of the same value for the same harmony throughout a bar, then the principal part is free to make more grace notes. Nevertheless, grace notes slzould never deviate from the general manner of playing in which one is directed to perform such a piece.

ANDANTE, LARGHETTO In an Andante or Larghetto written in triple crotchet metre (3/4), where the melody consists of leaping crotchets accompanied by the bass in quavers, with six often remaining on the same pitch and in the same harmony, one can play with more seriousness and with more grace notes than in an Arioso. But if the bass goes hither and thither by step, one must be carejtrl with the grace notes to avoid making forbidden fifths and octaves with the principal voice.

As regards the interpretation of the Adagio on the violin (for wind instruments substitute `tonguing ' for `bowing'), Quantz says:
An Arioso. Cantabile, Soave, Dolce or Poco andante is played with calm expression and with a light bow-stroke. Even if the Arioso is mixed with different kinds of quick notes, it still requires light, tranquil bowing. A Maestoso, Pomposo, Affettuoso or Adagio spiritoso should be played seriously and with somewhat weighty and pointed bowing. A slow. sad piece, which is indicated by the words: Adagio assai, Pesante, Lento, Largo assai or Mesto, requires the greatest moderation of tone and the longest, most tranquil and weightiest of bowing.

A.L.- 25.732



THE ALLEGRO AND ITS VARIOUS APPELLATIONS Firstly it must be noted that, of the various names given to pieces of music, the word Allegro, unlike the word Adagio, has a very broad meaning, and under the term Allegro are included several kinds of pieces in fast tempo, for example: Allegro, Allegro assai, Allegro non presto, Allegro ma non tanto, Allegro moderato, Vivace, Allegretto, Presto, Prestissimo etc. Here we are using the word Allegro in this broader sense, referring to all kinds of lively and fast pieces, and paying no attention to the special meaning of the word when it describes a particular sort of fast movement. Since many composers use the words assembled above more from habit than to give a good description of the true tempo of pieces (... ), many cases are found ( . . . ) in which the composer's intention must be guessed at from the content of the piece rather than from the word found at the beginning to denote the tempo. CHARACTER AND TEMPO The chief characteristic of the Allegro is sprightliness and liveliness. The Allegro must not be begun faster than one is able to play the (fast) passage-work to be found in it ( . . . ) It is for this reason that the speed must be decided on in accordance with the most difficult passages of the piece. However much vivacity the Allegro calls for, one should never deviate from a controlled and reasonable speed. For everything that is hurried will cause the ear more discomfort than satisfaction. One must always have as one's aim the sentiment that is to be expressed, and not set out merely to play rapidly ( . . . ) Hence, if in an Allegro one wishes to affect and charm the ear, each piece must in fact be played with suitably fiery expression; but one must never hurry the tempo, as the piece would thereby lose all its grace. TO AVOID HURRYING The tempo is hurried when the fingers are lifted too quickly, especially for leaping notes. To avoid this fault one must give a little emphasis to the first note of fast figures; in this way the important notes should always be heard for a little longer than those which are merely passing notes. As for triplets, one must take great care to make them very full and even, and not to hurry the first two notes too much ( . . . ) To give this effect one may stress the first note of a triplet since it is the most important note of the chord. TONGUING (See also p. 68, `To set off the theme', `To express different sentiments') The fault of hurrying too much also very often results from lack of attention to tonguing. The fast passages of the Allegro are those which must above all be played roundly, cleanly, with vivacity, with articulation and distinctly. To this end, liveliness of tonguing contributes much (... ) The tongue must sometimes be applied robustly, sometimes gently, according to the requirements of the kind of notes in question.

A. then more tranquility should prevail in it. majestic. it must always be well differentiated from the less important ideas in its expression.. If charm is the piece's dominant sentiment. ) and in dotted notes.68 HOW TO BREATHE Breath must be taken at a suitable time and carefully husbanded so as not to separate the parts of a melody which belong together by taking a breath at the wrong time. one must then play it in a spirited. TO EXPRESS DIFFERENT SENTIMENTS (spirited.. (1) See paragraph 'Double-dotted notes'. because on the one hand they become essential harmony notes. p. as also by piano' and forte' And for reprises in general.L. it must again be noted that it is principally vivacity of tonguing that expresses a spirited sentiment. and anything appropriate to it should always be performed in a sublime manner.

But if majestic sentiment makes up the character of the principal ideas. 27. so that the listener will not experience any boredom.732 .

The dots are sustained and the following note is passed over very briefly. one must immediately moderate one's fiery expression and play the slow notes with the sentiment they require. lively or bold. the alternation of piano' and forte' will lend much grace to one's playing. ORNAMENTATION In the Allegro as in the Adagio the plain melody should be decorated and made more pleasing by ports-de-voix and other small essential grace notes. Whether majestic or charming. charming) Sentiments change frequently. Charming sentiment is expressed with slurred notes which rise or fall by step. Bold sentiment is represented by notes in which the second or third are dotted. Spirited sentiment is imitated and represented by short notes ( . where the first half can be played softly. the more strength must be given to the low notes. it can always be made perceptible by vivacity or moderation in the movements of the tongue (. likewise with syncopated notes. and the first ones consequently hurried. bold.

A charming sentiment requires ports-de-voix, slurred notes, and a tender expression. On the other hand, a spirited sentiment demands cleanly finished shakes, mordents, and a playful expression. As regards the interpretation of the Allegro on the violin (for wind instruments substitute `tonguing' for `bowing'), Quantz says: The Allegro, Allegro assai, Allegro di molto, Presto and Vivace require lively, very light, short and well detached bowing, particularly in the accompaniment where the manner must be playful rather than serious. However a certain moderation of tone must be observed. An Allegretto or an Allegro that is qualified by the words: non presto, non tanto, non troppo, moderato etc. (... ) should be performed a little more seriously, and with bowing which may in fact be somewhat weighty, but nonetheless lively and vigorous. In particular, semiquavers in an Allegretto, as with quavers in an Allegro, will require a very short bowstroke (... ): but fast passage-work should be played with a light bow-stroke.

Character and Tempo of the Various Movements (Airs and Dances)
The various movements (airs and dances) in use during the 17th and 18th centuries will here be listed in alphabetical order. For each we have selected the principal definitions given by writers of the period, citing more than one when they complement or sometimes even contradict each other: in such cases, the date of the definition must be taken into account, the character of movements having often been subtly modified from one period to another. Whenever a precise speed is given for the tempo, it will be translated into a metronomic figure. (The patent for the metronome only dates from 1816. Before then, theoreticians used different means of indicating the tempo, such as chronometers—pendulums—, pulse beats, the number of seconds required for a given number of bars, and so forth.) AIR: see ARIA ALLEMANDE At first simply a dance, at the end of the 17th century the Allemande became the first or second piece in instrumental Suites. Its tempo was generally moderate, except in the second half of the 18th century when it often required a fast, sometimes even very fast tempo (Dom Bédos: Fast Allemandes of thirty-two bars in twenty seconds, that is J = 184!).
A sort of tune or piece in which the music is in quadruple time, taken gravely ( . . . ) The Allemande in a Sonata is now universally obsolete (... ); those who still use it give it a more spirited tempo. The Allemande is also the tune of a dance extremely common in Switzerland and Germany. This tune, as well as the dance, has much spirit: it is taken in duple time.

(Saint-Lambert) The Minuet is a tune in triple time and in a moderate tempo.732 ^•^--. and this overriding habit sometimes distracts their attention. the metre of simple triple time is so hurried for the true tempo of the Minuet that the hand has insufficient time to mark each beat when moving through the triangle formed by this kind of metre. the tempo is moderate rather than fast.. and it is for this same reason that dancers take the Minuet in 6/4. and the musician should take care to make this division evident with well marked cadential falls. because in 3/4 this strong beat is not distinguishable from the weak beat.^^r. an d consequently the period in question and the musical context must both be taken into account in performance.

Hotteterre's intention was to show how an `impromptu' Prelude could be improvised. they are done in various ways as the player fancies–perhaps tender.
