A LULLABY IN A SPACE - THE SPACE IN THE LULLABY. MILOSLAV KABELAC'S SIX LULLABIES
Languages of publication
The study 'A Lullaby in a Space - the Space in the Lullaby. Miloslav Kabelac's Six Lullabies (1956)' is a follow-up to an earlier one (published in the previous issue). The author focuses in particular on the accompaniment structure (flute, bass clarinet, strings and small female choir), which is completely extracted from material in the solo vocal line. There is a wide range of variation, from the use of only one tone to the expansion of melodic cells from the original vocal line. The composer creates different sound textures ranging from a rhythmic pedal on a single tone to different polyphonic combinations. Sound textures trace two principal planes: one of reciprocal stratification of the sounds layers which are more or less independent and the other, where all layers are in a harmony. They exist, not in isolation from each other, but grow organically from one another.
