1. Bryson, Michael S. STYLISTIC DIVERSITY IN LATE TWENTIETH-CENTURY AMERICAN HYMN TUNES.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, 2015, University of Houston

In the closing decades of the twentieth century, America experienced a surge of hymn writing and composition sometimes referred to as a “hymn explosion.” Responding to the radical revolutions in society and religion, hymn writers initiated changes in language, subject matter, and even poetic form to create a new body of congregational song for the modern twentieth-century church. Hymn composers, seeking contemporary musical means to express the hymn texts, applied recent composition techniques to congregational song. This essay summarizes the musical style of late twentieth-century American hymns based on the analysis of over eighty-five tunes composed after 1970. The results reveal an increased flexibility in modal usage; the inclusion of rhythmic devices such as mixed meter and syncopation; experimentation with strophic form; an expanded role of accompaniments; and, most noticeably, a widened harmonic palette replete with color chords, modern modulations, and untraditional voice-leading. Advisors/Committee Members: Smith, Rob (advisor), Maroney, Marcus K. (committee member), Durrani, Aaminah (committee member), Sposato, Jeffrey S. (committee member).

2. -4579-9998. The Death of Klinghoffer: A Brief Reception History.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, University of Houston

This essay examines the reception history of the first production of The Death of Klinghoffer, an opera by composer John Adams and librettist Alice Goodman, and with significant input by director Peter Sellars. I will begin with a brief overview of the historical events on which the opera is based. A description of the genesis of the work will show the creative team's original conception, especially in terms of ideological subtext. After describing the critical reception of the first production, making particular note of the discussion surrounding accusations of anti-Semitism in the opera, I will examine how the controversy surrounding the work continued as various revivals took place around the world. Data have been collected mainly from newspapers and magazines as well as a few academic journals. Research from reception of more recent productions takes into consideration the proliferation of discussion in online sources, including social media. This controversy provoked an unprecedented amount of scrutiny in the press, as well as from musicologists; given the various recurrences of this topic, it is important to understand how the controversy has played out since the opera premiered. I will conclude that the aforementioned criticisms will likely follow the opera wherever it is produced, at least for the foreseeable future. Advisors/Committee Members: Maroney, Marcus K. (advisor), Smith, Rob (committee member), Pollack, Howard (committee member), Snyder, John (committee member).

3. Lamm, Matthew Robert. Paul Hindemith's Philosophy of Tonality and Form.

Degree: Music, Moores School of, University of Houston

Paul Hindemith’s musical and theoretical writings have been misunderstood and underappreciated by a large number of modern musicians. In the same way that J.S. Bach’s oeuvre was not fully understood or valued until decades after his death, Hindemith’s music has suffered a similar fate. This essay draws a historical parallel between the circumstances surrounding both Bach’s and Hindemith’s personal lives, their musical output, and their overarching philosophical concerns. A general discussion of Hindemith’s early music is followed by a more detailed discussion and analysis of both published versions of his Das Marienleben song cycle. Utilizing passages from and analyses of Hindemith’s The Craft of Musical Composition, Trumpet Sonata, and Tuba Sonata, in addition to Hindemith’s published lectures, letters, and speeches, this essay will explain Hindemith’s mature compositional philosophy and detail how it evolved over the course of his lifetime. Advisors/Committee Members: Maroney, Marcus K. (advisor), Barton, Mark (committee member), Bertman, David (committee member), Vassallo, Jim (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: Hindemith; tonality; tuba sonata; The Craft of Musical Composition
