Typical Features of Some Melodic Structures in the Vocal Melodics of Janáček's Opera "The Makropulos Affair"

  • Miloš Štědroň

Abstract

The analytical probe undertaken shows that computer techniques make it possible to establish typical and atypical structures in transcribed texts. In the example given the vocal line consists mostly of seconds and thirds. The simply accentuated type +5+2, with its combinations, is only an average phenomenon. On the whole, groups of three tones are more typical. With the growing number of tones the structure becomes less typical.
