FREE Downloadable PDF Doctoral Dissertation - Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds (1924): Metrical Displacement, Tonal Distortion and the Composer as Performer
Dissertation by Malia Jade Roberson - "Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds (1924): Metrical Displacement, Tonal Distortion and the Composer as Performer."
This is the culmination of my graduate work on Igor Stravinsky. As a pianist, I was very interested in his perspectives on performance practice and focused my researched on his neoclassical Concerto for Piano and Winds (1924). During Stravinsky's first visit to the United States in 1925, rather than give audiences the ballets that had made him so famous, he performed his own Piano Concerto and other new works to mixed reviews.
Chapter One focuses on the reception of Stravinsky's American tour as composer, conductor, and concert pianist in the mid-1920s. This chapter earned the Stanley Krebs Award in Musicology as well the Roger Chapman Award in Music Theory at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
