THEATRICAL MUSIC COMPOSITIONS

"I hate the theatre. I also hate the sight of blood,
but it's in my veins."
Charlie Chaplin


These compositions focus on written scores where theatrical indications are either obligatory or in some cases an alternative. Mansoor insists on calling these pieces theatrical music or musique théâtrale and not musical theater or théâtre musical. It is the music that has theatrical elements.

The term theatrical music, on the other hand, refers to, or should refer to music written for musicians who challenge certain theatrical tasks. Even if theatrical parts of a certain piece may seem to take more space than the music in that piece, it is done for musical reasons and, therefore, the music has the main role. The music, the score and musicians become one and the same.
