  Article:   HARMONIC SYMMETRY IN THE FORMAL CONSTRUCTION OF DON JUAN (MASQUES OP. 34) BY KAROL SZYMANOWSKI / LA SYMETRIE HARMONIQUE DANS LA CONSTRUCTION FORMELLE DE DON JUAN (MASQUES OP. 34) DE KAROL SZYMANOWSKI.

  Abstract:   The purpose of this study is to show—by means of a rigorous analysis of the harmonic principles which govern the multiple sections of the work—that beyond the apparently heterogeneous surface the musical discourse is coherently and subtly organised within a space governed by complex relations of symmetry. Through these symmetries we witness a constant resonance between microcosm and macrocosm. This analysis brings new light upon Szymanowski’s architectural conception, which suddenly reveals itself clear and intelligible.

Keywords: Szymanowski, harmony, symmetry, quintal organization, pillars, formal conception
