Analysis of the rhythmic accompaniment in the folk music in Slovakia
Languages of publication
Thanks to the improvement in recording techniques and the technical feasibility of a more thorough analysis of field recordings, research of traditional ensemble music has extended its range to include analysis of the style features of harmonic-rhythmic accompaniment in string music. In an analysis of the playing of selected accompanists (viola, double bass) the key objective was to define its fundamental style features, by examining the rhythmic motifs forming its inner structure. The core of the analysis consists in the search for relevant differences between the notational and the actually-sounding form of individual rhythmic patterns. Theoretical and methodological premises of the analysis are presented, taking particular note of aspects connected with the psychological nature of musical rhythm and the musical-structural complexity of harmonic-rhythmic accompaniment in traditional string music in Slovakia.
