CHAPTER 8 Pathos Is Banned

MUSIC IN THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY
Author(s):
Richard Taruskin

Turning at long last to Stravinsky’s Octet, the work that started this tortuous discussion of sinister subtexts and convoluted circumstances on its way, we may be relieved—or dismayed—to find that, taken on its own terms, it is such an innocently diverting little piece. But of course to say that much is already a joke—or at least an exercise, like everything else in this chapter, in irony.
