Hey I have question about something which is very important in music but rarely gets that treatment.
The musical idea -- I have trouble finding some good insight into this so I figured here would be a good place.
What is the musical idea? How does one develop/refine it?
If anyone know where I can read some texts on this, I would appreciate it. The only thing I've found is this book.
The musical idea and the logic, technique, and art of its presentation By Arnold Schoenberg, Patricia Carpenter, Severine Neff. Im trying to get my hands on it right now. Thanks
