Silence in Music: L. van Beethoven and J. S. Bach. Aesthetic Approach
Keywords:tranquility, sonata, aria, harmony, spirituality
AbstractMusic can bring us to light, when it is not dissonant, not dominated by an aggressive rhythm, by congestion of timbres, or by… consumerism that consumes everything – including our values and tranquility. Spiritual tranquility is a sign of spiritual health; it influences our inner thoughts and emotions, representing an essential aspect in cultivating one’s spiritual life. This is the whisper of the mystical and transcendental Arietta in the last Beehovenian sonata for piano, her secret, variational message: the last part of the last sonata which seems open, unfinished, concluded however with an evanescent melody that searches its identity at unsuspected heights. The aim of the work is to evidence a first analysis of the postures of silence in musical art, and its structure highlights the stylistic characteristics of Beethoven's masterpiece in this sense.
