The Exploration of Selected Cross-Genre Compositions for Clarinet and Saxophone
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores specific aspects of the broad subgenre of classical/jazz cross-genre music through the performative examination of selected compositions that feature or include the clarinet or saxophone. Several mid-20th century works by American composers Gunther Schuller and William Russo, and several 21st century works by contemporary Australian composers Steve Newcomb and Yitzhak Yedid are explored through preparation, performance, and reflection. Through a performance-centric perspective, these works are contextualised through historical overviews of the third stream and cross-genre music, examinations of cross-genre performance considerations, and individual case studies of the key repertoire performed.
