- “Melody of the Sea”
Piano accompaniment analysis
“Melody of the Sea” is a large-scale choral work composed by Zhao Yuanren for Xu Zhimo's poetry, which was first published in “New Poetry Collection”. In this work, Zhao Yuanren emphasized the use of piano accompaniment to express the whole music and portray the characters, which is the indispensable content for the study of Chinese piano music in the early stage of Chinese new music. This paper takes Zhao Yuanren's choral work “Melody of the Sea” as the research object and explores the relationship between the text of “Melody of the Sea” and its piano accompaniment by analyzing, listening to and consulting related literature. Finally, it is concluded that the relationship between the piano accompaniment and the text of “Melody of the Sea” is a close combination and matching relationship. Its piano accompaniment can not only describe an independent musical image, but also can be combined with the text, echoing the meaning, melody and harmony colors expressed by the lyrics at different times, playing a role in setting off, contrasting, enriching the characters and rendering the artistic conception of music.
