  Symphonic Music
Peter Huebner comments on his Symphonic Creation                       page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
     
 
With this development, the three great musical composers thrust open the golden door to polyphonic symphonic creation, where not only (like past dictatorships) one voice conveys the theme and the others assume the lackey role of the homophonic accompaniment, but where all voices are accorded the same right and the same obligation to independent thematic voice leadership.
 
     
 
It was only with this ethical demand of the great classical composers, which was aimed musically at a contrapuntal thematic working of the smallest musical elements – the natural elements of the microcosm of music, that the "dramatic", the "natural" and the "democratic" moved into symphonic creation.

 

“Sending light
into the depths
of the human
heart –
the artists vocation.”

                                Schumann

 
 
 



“When the blind
leads the blind,
both fall
into the hole.”


                  Händel
 
A lack of recognition of this natural democratic musical drama by means of the counterpoint – which, with the appropriate musical mastership, also spatially and temporally integrates and so harmonises the most opposing musical elements – means that some of today's musical interpreters still only understand the dynamic: the externalised volume as the fundamental dramatic feature of the music - like the domestic bully thinks he can rule within the confines of the household with the help of his booming voice and by asserting his physical strength.

Haydn later described his symphonies as "moral characters" and in them, he outlined the ethical obligations and responsibilities of the composer and the musician in the area of humanity.
 
     
 
In their symphonic creations, Mozart and Beethoven also stood quite consciously in this new elemental musical tradition.

I have dealt thoroughly with this entire area of debate in the two books “Natural Music Creation” and “Natural Music Listening” – whereby, in the work “Natural Music Hearing”, I examine the application of the inner human strengths during the creation of music, and in the book “Natural Music Hearing” I describe the evolution of the inner human abilities in the process of systematic music recognition.

The counterpointing of the smallest musical element with itself opened the door to musical works in which no musical time stood in isolation, but instead everything was related to the whole.

The intended aim was an ever greater intensification and integration of all musical elements – particularly the smallest and simplest.
