The goal of this research project is to examine Mitropoulos’s compositional output, considering his early works up to the late 1920s and highlighting his compositional contribution to Greek music. Additionally, an analysis of his programmatic piece, Tafi (Burial), composed in 1915, will be presented.
In my research I used mostly theoretical and analytical methods, primarily through biographies of Mitropoulos and scholarly articles and analyses of his works. All the music examples are drawn from the newly published (2010) score of Tafi, from the Hellenic Music Centre, which was used for the analysis of the piece. There is also some historical context drawn from newspapers published while Mitropoulos resided in New York City. In my analysis of Tafi, ingenious structural ideas are examined.
