A Critical Edition Of Gustave Vogt's 4eme Solo De Concert, Mark Runkles Dec 2012

A Critical Edition Of Gustave Vogt's 4eme Solo De Concert, Mark Runkles

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

As oboe professeur titulaire at the Paris Conservatory from 1816-53, Gustave Vogt established his importance as a pedagogue by teaching many leading nineteenth century European oboists, and his influence can be traced to numerous living oboists. Additionally, Vogt played a seminal role in developing a virtuosic Romantic oboe style that paralleled the virtuosic styles developed for the more prevalent Romantic solo instruments, the piano and violin. His music is rarely played today, and Vogt remains a largely unknown figure even within the oboe community. The purpose of this study is to develop a critical edition of Gustave Vogt's 4ème ...

Jean-François Beaudin: Borrowing From The Old World And The New, Wendell B. Dobbs Nov 2012

Jean-François Beaudin: Borrowing From The Old World And The New, Wendell B. Dobbs

Wendell B. Dobbs

The modern flute world is full of innovation. Every year brings a new assortment of changes intended to improve the design or functioning of the modern flute—a new head-joint or a new material, a design innovation such as the vertical flute or a new contrabass flute. Much more subtle are changes to the design of 18thcentury style flutes. Generally, modern makers of these instruments take careful measurements of particular antique flutes that are recognized for ease of playing and copy them. The innovations are most likely subtle—a new wood, gentle tweaking of the embouchure or a tone hole ...

By Word Of Mouth: Historical Performance Comes Of Age, Ingrid E. Pearson Oct 2012

By Word Of Mouth: Historical Performance Comes Of Age, Ingrid E. Pearson

Performance Practice Review

Since Clive Brown’s 1991 accusation that many twentieth-century manifestations of historical performance lacked an appropriate degree of musical sensitivity, the historical performance movement has truly come of age. In the arena of Western Art music, historical performance is now an essential component of musical training and education. Successful performers must be able to seamlessly function across the widest possible range of musical styles, accommodating an equally wide gamut of tastes, both individually and collectively.

In 1982, nine years earlier, Walter Ong’s Orality and Literacy: The Technologizing of the Word explored differences between oral and literate cultures. Of particular ...


Numbers And Tempo: 1630-1800, Beverly Jerold Aug 2012

Numbers And Tempo: 1630-1800, Beverly Jerold

Performance Practice Review

After discussing the role of technology in achieving modern performance standards, this article examines sources that have been cited in support of extremely rapid tempos for the time frame 1630-1800. It summarizes recent findings about the French time devices in which a new source ‒ the Paris dancing master Raoul Auger Feuillet’s reasonable pendulum tempo numbers for dance forms ‒ provides the most accurate information to date for tempo around 1700. Continuing then with other sources cited for rapid tempos, the present article discusses the conflicting statements in Marin Mersenne’s Harmonie universelle and his inaccurate pendulum measurements. It considers the ...

The Form Of The Preludes To Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suites, Daniel E. Prindle May 2012

The Form Of The Preludes To Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suites, Daniel E. Prindle

Daniel E. Prindle

This thesis proposes a methodology for understanding the form of a Baroque prelude, particularly the preludes to the Six Suites for Unaccompanied Violoncello written by Johann Sebastian Bach. Four musical dimensions, tonal structure, motive, texture, and the potential implications of a piece’s genre, parse the preludes in different ways. As the features of these musical dimensions undergo either an evolution or a dramatic change over the course of each prelude, they each suggest a different form. Points of change in each dimension delineate segments in the music. When aligned, these changes create significant formal junctures and suggest an overall ...


The Chameleon Clarinet Cultural And Historical Perspectives In America Through The 20th Century, Julie Ann Vangyzen May 2012

The Chameleon Clarinet Cultural And Historical Perspectives In America Through The 20th Century, Julie Ann Vangyzen

Honors Projects Overview

The clarinet is unique in that depending on what setting it is performed in determines the character it can assume. Generally, these styles all sound completely different from one another despite the fact that the clarinet physically remains the same. However, is any one of these types of music so different from the other, or are they all related in some way? This paper determines how the genres of Dixieland and Swing Jazz, Jewish Klezmer, Avant-Garde, and Western European Classical Music are connected to each other through the use of the clarinet. Using twentieth century America as a backdrop, the ...

Audio Mastering As Musical Practice, Matt Shelvock Apr 2012

Audio Mastering As Musical Practice, Matt Shelvock

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis examines audio mastering as musical communication. Tasks including loudness management, harmonic balance, denoising, phase alignment, monitoring, effects application, and administrative responsibilities are of central importance to mastering engineers. With the exception of administrative responsibilities, each of these tasks significantly shapes a record’s aesthetic character and physical makeup. These contributions – the final creative steps before an album’s release – demonstrate the mastering engineer’s role as a collaborative auteur in recorded musical communications.

Correspondence: June 23, 2010, Roland Jackson Jan 2012

Correspondence: June 23, 2010, Roland Jackson

Performance Practice Review

The recent article by Dorottya Fabian and Eitan Ornoy, “Identity in Violin Playing on Records: Interpretation Profiles in Recordings of Solo Bach” (PPR 2009)—which considers mainly the twentieth-century violinists Heifetz and Milstein (with reference as well to Szigeti, Menuhin, and others)—is unusual in that it generally avoids any discussion of Bach’s original performance practice. As the authors state at the outset, “when studying the performances, we are not concerned primarily with how they may relate to historically-informed performance and Bach’s intentions or presumed intentions.” In this they depart from all the studies that have appeared thus ...
