Philip Murray (DMA Lecture-Recital)- French Symbolist affinities in a late work of Toru Takemitsu: an examination of And then I knew ‘twas Wind for flute, viola and harp.
Toru Takemitsu acknowledged Debussy as a major influence, yet evidence of this influence in Takemitsu’s music is not as obvious as is often assumed. Philip Murray’s DMA research examines various aspects of Takemitsu’s late style, taking as its starting point a comparison between And then I knew ‘twas Wind and Debussy’s Sonata for flute, viola and harp. It will be suggested that an understanding of the impact of French Symbolist theories of poetic language on Debussy’s musical style can offer new insights into Takemitsu’s aesthetics.
