Prof. David Chung / Hong Kong Baptist University:
- Interpreting BWV 903: A Case Study in Creativity and Composer-Performer Co-creationJohann Sebastian Bach’s Chromatic Fantasia (BWV 903) is an ideal work to explore how the performer can maintain the essence of improvisation in a work that was composed, for three main reasons. First, there exists no definite text. Secondly, the notation, especially in the arpeggio passages, is manifestly incomplete. Thirdly, the scope for the performer’s discretion in matters such as flexible timing and melodic embellishments is plentiful. In this paper, I would like to substantiate how an awareness of the structure and a study of music sources and stylistic issues could illuminate both technical and musical considerations leading to performances that are creative and spontaneous, yet scrupulous to the notational detail. On a deeper level, understanding the music as language is crucial for making sense of the chromatic, dissonant and sometimes atonal harmonies, for organizing notes into coherent and meaningful groups, and for crafting rhetorical gestures in the recitative section.
