1. Green, Rachel Kay. Alberto Ginastera's Harp Concerto, Op. 25: A Synthesis of Argentine Nationalism and Neo-Expressionism .

Degree: 2017, University of Arizona

The Harp Concerto, Op. 25 by Alberto Ginastera holds an important place in the harp repertoire, as it is one of the longest and most virtuosic concerti, and yet even the most prominent Ginastera scholars have not included it in their analyses. This study examines Ginastera's musical styles and how they are combined in the Harp Concerto to create a piece that both portrays Ginastera’s Argentine heritage and appeals to an international music audience through the use of contemporary compositional techniques. The overarching styles used in the Harp Concerto are Argentine Nationalism and Neo-Expressionism. Argentine Nationalism is seen in Ginastera's use of the malambo rhythm, special effects that mimic guitar writing, the guitar chord, and specific melodic figures and orchestral textures. Aspects of Neo-Expressionism include the replacement of traditional harmony with large clusters, the prominence of the (0167) tetrachord, the presence of a twelve-tone row, an overall increase in chromaticism, and the use of extended harp techniques. Argentine traits are present throughout several of Ginastera's Neo-Expressionistic compositions; however, the Harp Concerto stands out because of the clarity with which each style is incorporated, as well as in the unique way in which they are combined.

2. Wappel, Jaclyn M. Gamelan and the modern pedal harp of the West : a performer's perspective on hybridized musical influences in the harp chamber works of Bill Alves, Lou Harrison and Alan Hovhaness.

Degree: Thesis (D.A.), 2016, Ball State University

This study discusses, evaluates, and analyzes the various methods and patterns in which American composers Bill Alves (1960-), Lou Harrison (1917-2003), and Alan Hovhaness (1911-2000) have adapted Indonesian gamelan musical concepts, philosophies, and performance practices in selected Western chamber works that include the double-action pedal harp. In particular, these examples contain notation, instrumentation, musical layers and interactions, and sounds that are inspired by or modeled after Javanese and Balinese musical elements. Greater focus is given to Javanese musical practices, and inherent compositional devices have been discovered in each piece’s structure, rhythm, melody, ornamentation, intonation, and choice of instrumentation or orchestration. Special attention is given to a contextual and musical analysis of the Concerto for Harp and American Gamelan by Bill Alves, which features an unprecedented fusion of Western and Eastern musical practices. It is further evaluated through discussions of “authenticity” in world music, and I provide recommendations as to how a harpist can use this information in order to recreate this piece. Advisors/Committee Members: Pohly, Linda, 1954- (advisor), Richter, Elizabeth, 1954- (advisor).
