Example text

Often reality is improved upon, as in the Sacre (of whose mutilation Stravinsky is stated to have approved, although God knows why). Antheil has written an unpretentious little score for Angels over Broadway. It’s of the generally screwy variety, with Viennese waltz relief. When it’s screwy it’s full of small string glissandi or bumping bassoons, generally playing one slightly square theme which one hears a good many times. [ 35 ] 36 PA U L B O W L E S O N M U S I C Antheil, having dealt in dissonances longer than his confrères, handles this kind of thing better than most of them.

It is quite obvious even to the layman, if he listens to Copland’s score, that there is not the slightest musical connection between the blatancy of that old tune and the sensitive music for this scene. What the critic really meant was something else. He objected to the idea of using music at all to foster emotion for such a patently sentimental episode. Such an objection is justifiable only if it is carried to its logical conclusion. In that case, the music would be suppressed throughout the film, which would be a perfectly valid thing to do esthetically.

The composers and orchestra leaders (generally identical) place no musical restrictions upon themselves. They tackle all the forms known to them with equal zest. Their repertories include rumbas from Cuba, fox-trots from the United States, pasillos and waltzes from the neighboring mainlands of South America, and even that polyglot old trouper, the tango. Most of the foreign pieces are unsuccessful. The rumbas are unsubtle, and not really rumbas at all; certainly no Cuban would claim them. Their fox-trots and tangos are laughable.
