Diether de la Motte: A Master of Counterpoint

Diether de la Motte (1928-2010) was a German composer, music theorist, and pedagogue who wrote several influential books on music theory, including Kontrapunkt: ein Lese- und Arbeitsbuch (Counterpoint: A Reading and Workbook), first published in 1981. This book is a comprehensive and practical guide to the art of counterpoint, covering the history, rules, styles, and techniques of writing polyphonic music from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.

The book is divided into 14 chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of counterpoint, such as intervals, species, imitation, canon, fugue, and modern techniques. Each chapter contains examples from various composers, exercises for the reader, and references for further study. The book also includes an appendix with a glossary of terms and a bibliography.

One of the features that makes this book unique is that it includes excerpts from Contrappunto, a collection of contrapuntal exercises by Josquin des Prez (c.1450-1521), one of the most renowned composers of the Renaissance. Diether de la Motte uses these exercises as models for demonstrating the principles and practice of counterpoint in different contexts and genres.

The book is available in German and English editions, and can be downloaded as a PDF file from various online sources[^1^] [^2^]. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning or teaching counterpoint, or simply appreciating the beauty and complexity of polyphonic music.Here are a few more paragraphs for the article:

Diether de la Motte was born in Bonn in 1928 and began his musical education at the Hochschule fÃr Musik Detmold, where he studied composition, choral conducting, and piano. He later worked as a lecturer, editor, critic, and professor at various institutions in Germany and Austria. He was married to Helga de la Motte-Haber, a musicologist and professor of music psychology. He died in Berlin in 2010 at the age of 82.

As a composer, de la Motte explored various genres and styles, from traditional forms such as opera, orchestral, vocal and chamber music to experimental events, performances and pieces with ground-breaking ideas. He wrote two operas: Der Aufsichtsrat (The Supervisory Board), a satire on the economic and political situation in Germany in the 1960s, and so oder so (Like This or That), a series of scenic variations on the theme of identity and choice. He also composed numerous works for solo instruments, ensembles, choir, and orchestra, often using serial techniques and aleatoric elements.

As a music theorist, de la Motte wrote several books that are widely used by students and teachers of music and musicology. His Harmonielehre (Harmony) is a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the theory and practice of tonal harmony, covering topics such as scales, chords, functions, voice leading, modulation, chromaticism, and analysis. His Kontrapunkt (Counterpoint) is a practical guide to the art of writing polyphonic music from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, with examples from various composers and exercises for the reader. He also wrote books on musical analysis, form, aesthetics, and history. 9160f4acd4
