Dominick DiOrio’s recent article on Penderecki’s pitch procedures has been published in The Choral Scholar. DiOrio is currently assistant professor of music in the Choral Conducting Department at the Jacobs School.
“Embedded Tonality in Penderecki’s St. Luke Passion” explores the composer’s use of veiled tonal references to suggest and foreshadow the occurrence of triads. This embedded tonality manifests itself through the use of pedal tones, outer-voice frames, and diatonic collections.
