In this study, two monumental works from the wind band repertoire, Lincolnshire Posy (1937) by Percy Grainger (1882 - 1961) and Symphony in B flat (1951) by Paul Hindemith (1895 - 1963) were examined from an interpretive perspective. Through a qualitative, multiple case study design using one-on-one interviews with four long-term, successful collegiate wind band conductors, including: (1) Gary Green, Director of Bands at the University of Miami; (2) Michael Haithcock, Director of Bands at the University of Michigan; (3) Gary Hill, Director of Ensembles at Arizona State University; and (4) Joseph Missal, Director of Bands at Oklahoma State University, both common and disparate themes between their individual interpretations of these works were identified.
This study also explored the process that led the participating conductors' development of a personal interpretive style. Particular focus was placed on identifying experiences in the conductors' backgrounds that led to their present conceptions of these works, as well as how their interpretation changed over time and what specific factors led to those changes
