Solo Performance: An Extension Of Vocal Pedagogy, Monica J. Harte 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Solo Performance: An Extension Of Vocal Pedagogy, Monica J. Harte

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In this study, I examine the significance of the solo performance opportunity in vocal pedagogy at the tertiary level. In order to discover tangible correlations between solo performing and applied lessons, I designed and implemented a case study that focused on fourteen subjects rehearsing, performing, and recording roles in the children’s opera, Mambo. The findings stem from my theoretical analysis of substantive data collected through forty-one interviews and three months of observations. The data collected disclosed that whether the participants advanced within a particular performance practice (such as presentation), or developed a specific vocal technique (such as coloratura), Mambo ...


The Performance Conversation: A Pragmatic, Curricular Approach To Speaking From The Stage, Barrett J. Hipes 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Performance Conversation: A Pragmatic, Curricular Approach To Speaking From The Stage, Barrett J. Hipes

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The future of music depends not only upon the musician and his/her pursuit of technical and musical excellence, but also on the performer’s ability to effectively communicate musical ideas with the audience verbally, helping them to connect to the music beyond just a general or analytical level in pursuit of true appreciation. The ability to express multiple layers of the performer’s approach to repertoire, providing each audience with an informed vehicle for their own understanding and examination, is a supremely useful tool for advancing support for music. The intent of this document is to make a compelling ...


William Bolcom’S "Twelve New Etudes" (1988): Theoretical And Interpretative Analysis, Ran Dank 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

William Bolcom’S "Twelve New Etudes" (1988): Theoretical And Interpretative Analysis, Ran Dank

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Ever since its naissance, composer William Bolcom’s set of Twelve New Etudes has garnered great critical praise, culminating with the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in 1988. Although much has been written about the background surrounding the creation of these pieces and their technical novelty, no formal analysis of this set of etudes has been published.

This dissertation thoroughly examines the various aspects which hold these pieces together. Each etude is analyzed according to a clearly defined set of criteria: dynamics, compositional language, range, texture, articulation and contour, meter and rhythm, and form. In addition, a more detailed analysis is offered ...

Piano, Performance, Politics: The World Of Piano Competitions In Increasingly Global Scales, Anna Thompson

Research & Exhibition

A musician will be told this hackneyed phrase consistently throughout his or her career: the classical music industry is dying. At first glance, this appears to be true. Electronic dance music and rap seem to be one of the few genres appealing to mass audience, and the majority of people cannot name more than eight classical musicians. However, a staggering statistic arises deep within the classical music world: international piano competitions are increasing at a staggering rate, and more and more aspiring pianists continue to strive toward glory in the competitive field. Musicians- competitors and judges alike- span the globe ...
