Pedal Point City

May 22, 2019

This harmonic device has been used for hundreds of years and derives its name from a compositional practice employed by church organist-composers like Bach.  In this episode George Marriner Maull explains the emotional power of pedal points using musical examples spanning three centuries.

Inside Music with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is sponsored by Glenmede, an independent trust company providing investment and wealth management services with offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia.
