Performance considerations for Philippe Gaubert's “Madrigal”
by Brient, Robin, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 40; 1472264
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this document is to analyze stylistic interpretations of Philippe Gaubert's Madrigal using performances by the composer himself and nine other flutists. These artists include Robert Aitken, James Galway, Susan Milan, Marcel Moyse, Gary Schocker, Fenwick Smith, Mark Sparks, Kathryn Thomas, and Laurel Zucker. Philippe Gaubert's musical background, compositions, as well as his personal performances of the Madrigal will be the foundation for comparison. Discussion of the other artists' performances will include influences on individual expression, cultural context, and personal musicality. The author will also discuss elements implemented into her own performance of the work.
