by Villanueva, Ramon, Jr., M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 26; 1589656
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this paper is to provide insight to the influence Franz Strauss had on his son, Richard Strauss, and his first concerto for horn. This will be explored through an investigation of their personal relationship as well as giving an analysis and comparison of Franz Strauss's Concerto for Horn and Orchestra, Op. 8 and Richard Strauss's Concerto for Horn and Orchestra in E-flat Major, Op. 11. This examination will lead to a more informed and stylistically appropriate performance of Richard Strauss's first horn concerto. Upon completion of this project, I will have prepared Richard Strauss's first horn concerto for my master's recital.
