1. Guillen Alfaro, Jackson H. Understanding the Reception of Walton's Violin Sonata: An Analysis of the First Movement.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, 2014, University of Houston

This essay explores the tonal and formal structure of the first movement of the Sonata for Violin and Piano by William Walton in the context of its reception history. Reviews of the first performances of the work are discussed in the first section. In order to understand the negative reception of the piece evident in these reviews, an analysis of the first movement is then presented, with the purpose of exploring the tonal and formal aspects of the movement that may have led contemporary critics to conclude that the Sonata was too conservative, or too tonal. The analysis uses current methodologies to interpret form and design, including the Sonata Theory of James Hepokoski and Warren Darcy. Although the movement contains several instances of twentieth-century compositional strategies, its formal and tonal structure are still most closely related to the aesthetics of the Romantic era. This is a feature of the piece with which critics in the mid-twentieth century would naturally not be pleased, considering that after World War II the resurgence of experimentalism and serialism created a new set of aesthetic criteria from which they would judge new works. Advisors/Committee Members: Davis, Andrew (advisor), Yon, Kirsten A. (committee member), Brooks, Wayne (committee member), Grabiec, Andrzej (committee member).

2. Wilton, Amanda. York Bowen's Three Viola and Piano Masterworks for Lionel Tertis.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, 2014, University of Houston

English violist Lionel Tertis (1876-1975) was the “father of the viola” and revolutionized viola playing as we know it today. Known for his beauty and depth of tone, Tertis’s techniques are evident in the many works he requested from composers in his quest to promote the viola as a solo instrument. York Bowen (1884-1961) contributed several works to Tertis’s mission and served as one of the violist’s primary piano collaborators from 1904 to around 1920. In addition to several short pieces and the Viola Concerto (1908), Bowen wrote three masterworks to perform with Tertis: Sonata No. 1 in C Minor (1905), Sonata No. 2 in F Major (1906), and Phantasy for Viola and Piano (1918). This dissertation explores the background of the Tertis-Bowen collaboration and how the musicians’ similarities in musical aesthetic, attitude, and philosophy led to the creation of these three works. Chapter 1 covers Tertis’s early career as a viola soloist and identifies his revolutionary techniques and signature sound. Chapter 2 focuses on Bowen’s early career as a pianist and composer, his compositional style, and his collaboration with Tertis. The end of the chapter includes a comparison of the two musicians and offers several reasons why the partnership worked so well. Chapter 3 recounts the history of the two sonatas and Phantasy, while Chapter 4 includes musical examples showing the manifestation of Tertis’s signature sound and revolutionary techniques found in each of these three works. The historical and stylistic analysis in this document proves the value of these works, and also provides the evidence needed to equate them with those already in the standard viola repertoire.

3. -7558-2557. Post-war Ethos in Darius Milhaud's Violin Concerto No. 2.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, University of Houston

This study examines Darius Milhaud’s Violin Concerto No. 2, op. 263, within the context of Milhaud’s middle stylistic period and the post-World War II years. The essay highlights the effect of World War II on the composer and how his experience is musically conveyed in the Violin Concerto No. 2. Milhaud’s thoughts on the distinction between the Latin and Germanic compositional styles are discussed; both styles are incorporated into the concerto. Milhaud’s writings reveal the personal impact of the war on the composer’s life and his thoughts on the war. Each movement of the concerto demonstrates how this work was influenced by the composer’s experience with the war. The study proposes a narrative interpretation informed by Milhaud’s compositional choices. I suggest that the dotted rhythms, military fanfares, and choice of percussion instruments contribute to forging a war-themed background. Furthermore, Milhaud’s use of modal mixture and chromaticism portray the combination of Latin and German influence. Lastly, the opposition between the soloist and orchestra further support the narrative of a protagonist fighting against larger forces. Advisors/Committee Members: Lange, Barbara Rose (committee member), Snyder, John (committee member), Krager, Franz A. (committee member), Grabiec, Andrzej (committee member).
