In his ‘Trattato di musica secondo la vera scienza dell’armonia’ published in 1754 Giuseppe Tartini laid out a mathematical proof of third tone’s pitch as either sum or difference of the other two articulated pitches. The idea behind the performance of Karolina Ossowska (violin), Mikołaj Pałosz (cello) and Ralf Meinz (recording) was to search for the combination tones in Tartini’s own music.

Apart from being a prolific Italian composer, Giuseppe Tartini was also a violin teacher and a theorist. Out of close analysis of intonation, he became interested in a long known phenomena of mysterious third tones which sometimes appear when only two sounds are articulated. He called them „il terzo suono” and was the first one to develop a written down theory of what we now know as combination tones. In his “Trattato di musica secondo la vera scienza dell’armonia” published in 1754 he laid out a mathematical proof of third tone’s pitch as either sum or difference of the other two articulated pitches. The idea behind the performance of Karolina Ossowska (violin), Mikołaj Pałosz (cello) and Ralf Meinz (recording) was to search for the combination tones in Tartini’s own music. In order to make it audible, we decided to follow the path of a never-mention-his-name-because-you-will-be-in-debts composer, also interested in combination tones, who famously stretched durations of each note in a serial music piece which resulted in one of the milestones of minimal music.
