Before accompanying was widely recognized as a distinct art form, Donald Nold established himself as a prominent international figure in the field, generated new curriculum of study surrounding his expertise, and selected and mentored the subsequent generation of accompanists. He was a significant contributor to the substantial elevation the field saw in the late twentieth century. This thesis is the first written documentation of Nold’s life, art, and contributions to the field. Material was collected through interviews with Nold and his former students Warren Helms and June Marano Murray. In documenting the contributions of Donald Nold, this study explores the defining aspects of the art form and illuminates the need for distinction in terminology surrounding it. This study provides an introduction to an otherwise undocumented piece of music history, with implications especially profound for performance-history documentarians, musicologists, collaborative pianists, and singers.
