Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Insight on selected standard audition repertoire for the trombone
by Thurman, Demondrae Ladratus, D.M.A., The University of Alabama, 2010, 75; 3409127
Abstract (Summary)

Because there are virtually no resources that discuss the salient aspects of solo trombone repertoire, this document offers a thorough study of Morceau Symphonique by Alexandre Guilmant and Cavatine by Camille Saint-Saƫns. For many trombonists, these pieces represent the beginning of the standard repertoire; therefore, they are a logical place to begin the process of providing such resources for the instrument. For both pieces, the historical components provide information about the climate surrounding the composer at the time the piece was written; an analysis of structural and theoretical constructs with each piece offers a phrase-by-phrase presentation. The interpretation of each piece, the primary focus of this document, was highly influenced by the research. It is my hope that my work will inspire more such studies of the trombone repertoire. Ultimately, students preparing for collegiate auditions will use this document to form their own opinions about these two wonderful pieces.
