Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

J.S. Bach's Chaconne for Solo Violin: A Performer-Composer's Approach to Interpretation
by Abraham, Immanuel Tzemach, D.M.A., The University of Arizona, 2018, 109; 13426371
Abstract (Summary)

The thesis of this document comprises two parts. The first demonstrates that recomposing Bach’s Chaconne has formed an interpretive tradition among performer-composers over the past one hundred eighty years. The second is dependent upon the first, and explicates how this tradition may be methodically used by performer-composers interpreting Bach’s Chaconne upon the unaccompanied modern violin. A comprehensive realization of this thesis has been arranged by the author in a complete, annotated score following the document's conclusions.
