Description of Style

Consideration on tight, concise form, on concentration and "succession-relation" of the thematic material. This is presented at the beginning of some works in the form of motivic "nucleus", which then - obligatory for the entire piece - is subject to various modifications in the course of the musical development. Based on the principle of "recess" the melodic structures are divided; formation of "centers" and their dissolution of each other are characteristic for the harmonious-functional process.
