This paper includes analytical and historical methodologies to discuss "Roman Sketches." The purpose of this paper is to introduce the historical context of "Roman Sketches" within Griffes's works and impressionism and provide analysis regarding its musical characteristics. Additionally, the programmatic elements of the work will be explored. In the creation of this work, Griffes was inspired by Sospiri di Roma, which was written by the Scottish poet, William Sharp. Therefore, an exploration of the relationship between the poem and music is important to the study of this piece. The preparation, interpretation and technical aspects (with an emphasis on pedaling and fingering) of the work will be discussed in the latter portion of the paper.
