Vincent Persichetti’s septet King Lear was originally composed for the choreographer Martha Graham and her 1949 production, Eye of Anguish. While the production was considered a failure and has not been performed since its European tour in 1950, Persichetti admired his own portion of the collaboration and argued it would stand on its own merit as a chamber work. This thesis represents the first significant study of Persichetti’s King Lear. It is a guide for conductors and chamber ensembles preparing an informed performance, with historical information, theoretical analysis, and rehearsal analysis.
