1. Nordlund, Samuel. Motive and form in Lowell Liebermann's four Sonatas for violoncello and piano.

Degree: 2016, University of Alabama

This manuscript explores the four sonatas for cello and piano by Lowell Liebermann, and is accompanied by my recording of the works, in collaboration with pianist Kevin Chance. These works were composed between 1978 and 2008, but are not yet part of the standard repertoire. Given the lack of well-known sonatas for cello and piano since the mid-20th century, there is a distinct need to promote high-quality new music of this genre. Not only do Liebermann’s sonatas fill a void, but with more exposure, they would appeal to a majority of performers and listeners alike. In this manuscript, I will focus my analysis on Liebermann’s use of sectional forms and simple motives in the sonatas. I will also explore the marked difference between the atonal first sonata and the tonal, lyrical later ones that reflect a much more mature composer, able to fuse highly sectional forms with his own unique sense of style. As only one recording of the sonatas, featuring cellist Dmitri Atapine and pianist Hyeyeon Park, has been publicly released, our new recording will present the works to a wider audience and will offer a different interpretation based on observations developed in the manuscript. My hope is that, in consequence of this project, these sonatas will become more widely performed and recorded, and will form a significant addition to the cello and piano repertoire.

2. Reeves, Michael Bryan. Russian trumpet concertos.

Degree: 2014, University of Alabama

This manuscript accompanies an audio cd recording of four Russian concertos for trumpet: Concerto in F Minor, Op. 18, by Oskar Böhme (1899); Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra, Op. 41, by Aleksandr Gedike (1930); Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra by Aleksandra Pakhmutova (1955/ 2nd ed. 1978); and Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra by Aleksandr Arutiunain (1950). These concertos have been featured on other recordings of Russian trumpet music, though not all of the composers are Russian-born, and they are generally known as such among the trumpet community. Additionally, these pieces share a number of characteristics including elements of formal design, extensive use of the minor mode, and considerable demands of technical virtuosity and mature lyricism on the part of the performers. The manuscript provides a brief biographical history of each composer as well as a detailed discussion of the form and central themes of each piece.

3. Crocker, Sarah Katherine. The descriptive miniatures of Alphonse Hasselmans and Henriette Renié: an examination of the pedagogical and artistic significance of salon pieces for harp.

Degree: 2013, University of Alabama

Characterized by the ascendance of the double-action pedal harp and a resulting evolution in harp literature and performance practice, the modern French school of harp developed at the fin de siècle. Belgian harp virtuoso and composer Alphonse Hasselmans (1845-1912) founded this new method after his appointment as professor of harp at the Paris Conservatory in 1884. Championed by his most beloved student, harp prodigy and composer Henriette Renié, the French school of harp flourished in the early twentieth century. This document offers an examination of the relationship between Hasselmans and Renié, as well as a study of their salon pieces for harp. Chapter one, an overview of the political and religious environment of France during the Third Republic, explains how government and gender stereotypes affected the lives of these musicians. It also provides a concise history of the role of the harp in Parisian salons and assesses the importance of program music during the belle époque to illustrate how Hasselmans' and Renié's descriptive works fit into a broader cultural and musical context. Chapter two provides a detailed study of the close, but at times tumultuous, rapport between these composers. The analysis of their relationship is supported by unpublished primary source material, including letters from Hasselmans to Renié and anecdotes from Renié's memoirs, from the Henriette Renié (1875-1956) and Françoise des Varennes (1919-2004) Papers located at the International Harp Archives at Brigham Young University. Building on the previous discussion, chapter three details the compositional influence of Hasselmans' works on those of Renié through similarities in genre, form, and compositional style. Chapter four discusses the pedagogical features of the salon pieces that resulted from this collaboration. Although the works are recognized for their pedagogical value, harpists today rarely appreciate their worth as performance pieces. To correct this oversight, chapter five illustrates the artistic showcases that the performance and recording of these works offer to seasoned performers. Despite their vital contribution to the harp community, scholars have too frequently ignored Hasselmans and Renié. This document seeks to encourage further biographical research and to inspire performance and recording of their works.
