1. Yim, Chee Weng. Writing Music and its Role in a Conductor’s Training as a Performer.

Degree: DMA, Instrumental Performance (Music), 2018, University of Miami

Transcriptions are often deemed as less important than their original models. The accessibility to original models (in performance and listening), the perceived prestige, and the rejection of transcriptions in place of original compositions are often reasons that musicians provide when dismissing transcriptions. This paper hopes to provide an account in favor of transcriptions, through (1) the review of aesthetic writings on music (especially those related to transcriptions), (2) a brief commentary of the similarities between writing music (composing, transcribing, arranging) and performance, and (3) a transcription of Steven Stucky’s Symphony (2012). Through the above methods, the paper examines the benefits of transcriptions (and composing and arranging in general), considers the opposing views on transcriptions and provide counterarguments to them. The primary audience is graduate students in performance (instrumentalists, conductors, singers) and music educators at the collegiate level. However, musicians at all levels may find the discourse in this paper useful. A recommendation for further study is enclosed. Advisors/Committee Members: Robert M. Carnochan, Thomas M. Sleeper, Gabriel John Beavers, Don D. Coffman, Donald Scott Stinson.

2. Davenport, Jennifer Tish. Functions of Quotations in Steven Stucky's Oratorio August 4, 1964 and Their Placements within the Context of a Quotation Continuum: Cultural, Commentary, Remembrance, and Unity.

Degree: 2011, University of North Texas

The oratorio August 4, 1964 is a twelve-movement work for orchestra, chorus, and four soloists written by Steven Stucky. The premise for the libretto, adapted by Gene Scheer, is the confluence of two events during one day (August 4, 1964) in the life of Lyndon B. Johnson. Although the main idea of the libretto focuses on these two events of this one day, many cultural references of the 1960's in general can be found as well, such as quotations from the well-known song "We Shall Overcome." Stucky borrows from a motet he wrote in 2005 for another quotation source utilized in this oratorio, "O Vos Omnes." My goal in this thesis is to reveal and analyze the many different levels of quotations that exist within August 4, 1964, to explore each quotation's individual function within the oratorio (as a cultural gesture, commentary or remembrance), and to examine the structural coherence that emerges as a result of their use within the oratorio. Advisors/Committee Members: Schwarz, David B., Slottow, Stephen, Klein, Joseph.

Subjects/Keywords: O Vos Omnes; We Shall Overcome; remembrance; cultural meaning; commentary; continuum; Scheer; Stucky; unity; quotation
