Abstract

This paper explores the cultural and structural significance of melodrama both as defined music-linguistic form and as more generalized, highly emotive mode of expression, and explores aspects of Mahler's Second Symphony which may he said to embody similar practices. Issues of virtual vocality, textural and timbral excess, rapid changes of mood and musical direction, and virtual theatrical space, are discussed.
