Abstract:This project examines Pascal Dusapin’s musical essence through his stylistic periods. The composer’s early music (late 1970s to 80s) is characterized by microtonality; an intermediate period (1988-90) presents a transformation into restrained pitch material; the second period (1990s) combines these two techniques with archaic modality. Lastly, the third period (from 2000 to the present) combines musical features from second period with a more lyrical and chromatic character. This essay discusses musical expression, pitch, instrumental techniques, and the influence of Samuel Beckett’s visual work Quad I and II on the composer’s concerto for violin and chamber orchestra, Quad (composed 1996).
