Topic: Trill (music)


  
  Trill (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The trill is a musical ornament consisting of a rapid alternation between two adjacent notes of a scale (compare tremolo).
The usual way of executing a trill is to rapidly alternate between the note indicated and the note directly above it in the given scale (unless the trill indicates an accidental).
These factors, together with the overall rate of the trill and whether that rate is constant or variable, can only be determined by considering the context in which the trill appears, and is usually to a large degree a matter of opinion with no single "right" way of executing the ornament.

 Giuseppe Tartini-Connie's Violin Page   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The trill was the most usual and important of ornaments during this style period, and currently the most controversial, in respect to the conflict over the upper note start.
One is by pressing hard on the lower note and striking the trill; the other is the "ripped" not "struck" affect created not by raising the finger but by using the wrist to carry the hand in a rippling motion.
A change in musical taste is reflected in Burney’s two published opinions of the composer; the one expressed in1788 was less favorable than the first from 1770; during the interim Tartini’s ornate style had begun to seem stilted and out of fashion.

 Ornamentation in the Bassoon Music of Vivaldi and Mozart, P. II
The trill in measure 136 is tied to the preceding appoggiatura indicating a main note trill.
In measure 12, the main note of the trill is a written-out appoggiatura indicating the use of an anticipated grace note.
Because of the leap to the trill in measure 27 of the third movement, a main note trill is preferable.

 Dolmetsch Online - The Story of a Trill
The trill T(1) for B to C is so clearly nonsense if one is trying to play in tune that whatever her reputation as a performer, I would certainly question her hearing.
The wide trill movement seems to be based on ideas from 'gesture and effect' if I may steal two rhetorical terms, where tuning is relegated to a subsidiary position in the interests of musical drama.
The question arose from a suggested fingering for a semitone trill (written as a semitone trill C to B) which is actually the fingering for a tone trill C# to B. For the semitone trill there is general agreement that a perfectly good fingering exists T 2(3).

 INKPOT#64 CLASSICAL MUSIC REVIEWS: TARTINI "The Devil's Sonata" and other works. Manze (Harmonia Mundi)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
To me, music which is supposed to be inspired by a/the devil, being "diabolical" in spirit, is turned into a tame collection of notes when the piano part is around.
The music itself is permeated with an air of tension and suspense throughout.
The rousing trills makes me wish for impossible violence to be conveyed from a mere violin to fully realise what Tartini might have heard in his dream encounter with the devil; This is probably the most fiery account that one can settle for in any case.

 Bach Music Manuscript Notation
Trills on longer notes may consume the entire time value of the note or may stop near the end (on the principal note) on the beat or on any fraction of the beat.
The long trill may begin slowly and accellerate as it proceeds, although this would be impossible to indicate with precise notation.
Because the last two notes of the trill combine with the termination to produce a sound exactly like the prefix, it is best to include several additional repercussions of the trill whenever the length of the note permits.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Ornamentation
This is examined further in Mozart's musical language in The Marriage of Figaro.
In music written before the nineteenth century the mordent (written as a shake sign crossed by a vertical line) is a sequence of three notes (the written note, the note below and returning to the written note).
This rejection of the use of vibrato in modern performances of 'early music' has led to a lot of dry, rather dull performances that find an audience that 'feels' it is 'early' because it is not what they believe to be 'modern', that is, to include the use of 'vibrato'.

 The Music Show - 31/08/2002: Andrew Manze
I mean music at that time was not only expensive, it was quite heavy to lug around and I think a lot of their time, they wouldn’t take music with them, they would just improvise together.
And I feel rather sad that there’s all this great music out there which is still being discovered, we’re unearthing it, each year new music’s coming to light, and there are wonderful violinists who just never touch it.
In the two you mentioned, Uccelini and Pandolfi, they wrote their music at a time, which was about the 1660s, before music printing was very sophisticated, so their pages of music that survive are very empty of information.

 Beethoven Trills
A complex trill-for example, one with a turned beginning from below--*will* start on the lower note, granted, but only because Bach has specified that it is a trill with a turned beginning from below.
Therefore the note prior to the one bearing the trill sign would be *repeated* as the preparatory note of the trill.
Therefore, I state the following rule for trills in Beethoven: start on the beat and on the upper note EXCEPT when in a descending line (that is, when the note before the note bearing the trill is a step higher than the trill note).

Trill effects are of three kinds in the piece: 1) using an alternation of a normal fingering with "added keys" to the normal fingering like: (note that the approximate rhythm of the alternation is given.)

Yet, the performance still had to stay within the true spirit in which the music was original written, because all of us have a habit of respect for the way we were first introduced to these pieces in our early training.

Embellishments of every kind were most copius in harpsichord, spinet, and clavichord music, as well as in violin music, in the eighteenth century.
In the first-names instruments their presence was often necessary, since they served to prolong a note [by trill, turn, or mordent] which these instruments could not sustain.
A trill generally ends with a turn, especially if it has the rhythmic value of a half-note or more, and if it occurs in an ascending passage.

 Art Machine: License to Trill
For many TV shows, costs to license the original music for DVD are prohibitively high, so rights owners replace the music with cheaper tunes, much to the irritation of avid fans.
What’s disturbing to me is not so much the idea that the companies responsible for this have to pay extra to use the music as it is the fact that sometimes the companies save money by cutting out the original music and replacing it with needle drops.
I understand that in some cases, the artists responsible for the creation of the project are willing to sit there and rate the importance of the music to the piece – as they apparently did with the American Dreams DVD’s, where they labeled music as either indispensible or replacable and acted accordingly.

 Techniques: Part Two   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
If you combine the hammer-on and the pull-off technique, you get what they call the “trill.” A trill happens when you have two fingers on two frets on the same string, and you alternate hammering-on and pulling-off between the two notes.
The pick is never required in a trill.
If you keep hammering-on and pulling-off between the two notes, you should be able to generate enough vibration to keep the sound alive without using your right hand at all.

 Blogcritics.org: Sheryl Crow's "The Light in Your Eyes" as cultural ambassador, and why I dislike singing rodents!
Listen to "Soak up the Sun." There are plenty of natural trills that (OK, the trills are a little slower in that one), and Sheryl and her backup singers have no problems nailing them without the use of any computer software (that my ears can immediately detect).
Using pitch-shifting software to sing recorded trills definitely gets a "thumbs down" from me. The difference between a naturally sung trill, with its subtle delays and dissonances, and a computer generated one is like the difference, as Sheryl might sing in one of her songs, between the sun and moon.
I suppose what someone could do is play the notes to be sung (the trill) on a MIDI keyboard to introduce the right subtle delays for each singer (in a way that cannot be deduced directly from the sheet music).
