You are probably aware of Mattheson's treatment of recitative in Der
Vollkomene Kapellmeister.

Subject: [Smt-talk] Advice concerning analytical approaches to recitative



In the new term that begins next month, I will be offering a graduate music
theory seminar on music and text. The clientele will be a heterogeneous
group of performers, music scholars, composers, and conductors. I'd like to
include a unit on something that has always interested and perplexed me,
namely recitative. It seems to me that recit has not been studied
analytically as well as it has been scrutinized historically. I humbly
request your ideas for repertoire and analytical literature that I might
introduce in this context.

With best wishes,
