1. KWON, JUN. Beethoven's Two-Movement Piano Sonatas and Their Predecessors.

Degree: DMA, College-Conservatory of Music : Piano, 2008, University of Cincinnati

In the literature of keyboard solo music, the two-movement sonata has occupied a unique place in both structure and aesthetics. The great flowering of this type of sonata tookplace during the first half of the eighteenth century, contributed by a great number of Italian composers. Although the decline of Italian keyboard music in the second half of the century resulted in the drastic decrease of the production of the two-movement sonata, its musical substance and the structural capacities continuously developed and expanded by the hands of several masters with diverse nationalities, and finally reached its culmination in Beethoven's sonatas, especially in his last piano sonata, Opus 111.This project first traces the historical background that paved the way for Beethoven(chapters 1, 2, and 3), and then investigates Beethoven's six sonatas, focusing on the closeformal and musical interrelationships between two movements from each single sonata(chapter 4). Hence, the purpose of this project is twofold: to bring events in the development of the two-movement keyboard sonata, a formal scheme in the history of sonata yet not part of the mainstream, into fresh relief, reliving its significance for keyboard literature; and to highlight the way that Beethoven's six two-movement piano sonatas represent monumental works that serve to maximize the formal possibilities of its structure. Advisors/Committee Members: Weinstock, Frank (Committee Chair).
