My friend and I were fulfilling a dream of hers of being in the Goldener Saal of the Wiener Musikverein listening to Daniel Bärenboim conducting Mozart. And something occurred to me. Although I never learned to play an instrument, I have studied music theory. In music theory, you usually work with a keyboard instrument such as a piano so that you can work with both melodic and harmonic intervals, including chords. While the piano is polyphonic, most major instruments are monophonic, capable of playing only one note at a time. What occurred to me that night was the idea that the multiple violins could be playing the other notes of the chords. Could a musician here confirm or refute that idea?
