1. Schoelen, Christopher. To Prelude (v.): The Art of Preluding and Applications for the Modern Classical Guitarist.

Degree: Degree of Doctor of Musical Arts in Music Performance, Art, 2019, University of South Carolina

In Western classical music, there are many types of compositions; some examples include sonatas, symphonies, fugues, and motets, each with a particular form. The prelude stands out as one of the few classical music forms in which the title can also be used as a verb. This is not frequently seen with other compositional types; there is never a case of “sonata-ing,” and an orchestra cannot suddenly burst into “symphony-ing.” However, there is a practice known as preluding. Historically, preluding was a common improvisational practice although many musicians today are unfamiliar with the tradition. Generally unexplored, preluding has played an influential role in the evolution of Western classical compositions and music education. In these pages, the history of preluding will be revealed, starting from the Middle Ages and continuing through the twenty-first century. In the Renaissance and Baroque periods, preluding was especially important to plucked-stringed instruments such as the lute, an ancestor of the guitar. Lutenists would prelude in order to tune their strings and adjust their frets before a performance. Many of today’s guitarists are unaware of this practice but creating and performing preludes in concert can help their performances acquire aspects of immediacy and spontaneity. This study will look at the history of preluding with the goal of helping modern guitarists practice this art and be able to implement these ideas into performance situations. Advisors/Committee Members: Christopher Berg.

2. Kim, Mo-Ah. Towards a Revival of Lost Art: Clara Wieck Schumann's Preluding and Selected 20th-Century Pianist-Composers' Approaches to Preluding.

Degree: DMA, College-Conservatory of Music: Piano, 2019, University of Cincinnati

The purpose of the document is to advocate for the appreciation and application of the commonnineteenth-century practice of improvised preluding. After studying Clara Wieck Schumann’scompositional process based on her eleven notated preludes and selected twentieth-century pianist-composers’approaches to preluding, I provide three preludes based on their prelude sketches, styles, andtranscriptions. Because I am an advocate of historically informed performance practice, my goal is todelve further into historical piano recordings and the artists who left their legacies through liveperformances and studio recordings. I endeavor to preserve some of their preluding attempts by way oftranscribing them from the selected recordings. The document is organized in three main parts. Chapterone presents Clara Wieck Schumann's training and influences, preluding practices, and her notatedeleven preludes. Chapter two provides the transcriptions of the selected twentieth-century pianist-composers’preluding from the recordings of studio and historical live performances, comparing andcontrasting their approaches to preluding. Chapter three contains my own transcriptions of performedpreludes. The first two preludes are modeled after Einfache Praeludien fu¨r Schu¨ler, and the last preludewill be on my own. All relate to Schumann’s concert program on December 14, 1854. Advisors/Committee Members: Cahn, Steven (Committee Chair).
