It was in the musical material itself, particularly its intervallic
relationships, that the true emotional and aesthetic value of the music could be found, and not in the medium of its performance.
The interval is the approximate change in pitch from one hole to the next on the flute (for example m3, a minor third), and the intervallic
size is the actual interval measured in cents.
We also hear shades of Wagner and Elgar and the expressive despair which the tight closeness of intervallic
quarter-tones can suggest - the CBSO strings execute these with expert intonation.
Breathing and Vocalising Life rhythms and tonal intervallic
synthesis help a patient synchronise and deepen the breathing process.
11), a reading that ignores Deryck Cooke's persuasive suggestion that Wotan, too, gave up love (by bartering his sister Freia to the giants) for power (Valhalla), an explanation which brilliantly accounts for the famous intervallic

The combination of jumping intervallic
patterns and fingerings would present a challenge to small hands.
Like the instruments in Carter's compositions of the 1980s, Rose's ability to spin out beautifully formed and continuously varying lines with great virtuosity is unhampered by her limited intervallic
repertory, which is both the smallest and the most rigorously adhered to in the opera.
His second reason is much more profound: the unique intervallic

By "forensic" he means analysis geared toward reconstructing the process of creating contrapuntal networks, particularly fuga and stretto fuga at various temporal and intervallic

Rather, Debussy has constructed a virtuoso "etude" exploiting specific intervallic
