Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Interpreting Lovregio's fantasia on "La Traviata": Performance and score analysis
by Johnson, Rebecca S., M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 47; 1517648
Abstract (Summary)

Donato Lovreglio's Fantasia on La Traviata for clarinet and piano is a gem of the repertoire. I performed this piece in a Master's Recital, and in preparation researched the background of the composer, the opera fantasia genre, and other performances of the work. I discuss the performances of Martin Fröst, Ferdinand Steiner, Seunghee Lee, and Colin Bradbury. The focus of an opera is the song, and despite the wordless setting, the best performance of an opera fantasia also focuses on song. In this paper I discuss how to accomplish that as a performer.
