520 What is it that makes Mendelssohn's music recognizably
unique? This study hopes to make a contribution to the
answer through an analysis of an extensive sample of
Mendelssohn's instrumental music. I identify a
compositional practice which I believe to be a hallmark of
his style: the smoothing over of formal junctures of
various types. By and large, Mendelssohn's dynamic
treatment of formal junctures reflects a general concern
with enhancing continuity and momentum in longer forms, a
compositional issue that has always presented a challenge
to composers in the Western music tradition. The main
purpose of our investigation, then, is to delineate the
specific techniques that Mendelssohn used in his
characteristic effort to bridge over formal divisions.
Many of Mendelssohn's works reveal this clear (and
evidently deliberate) propensity to create larger
continuities by means of bridging over divisions,
regardless of the formal prototype or level of structure.
At the same time, an almost Mozartian clarity of form
often is preserved. This might at first seem contradictory,
but Mendelssohn, as I shall attempt to demonstrate, was
able to find ingenious ways of having his cake and eating
it, too [From author's introduction].
