Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

William Henry Squire's out-of-print works for cello and piano: Analysis and suggestions for teachers
by Pezzoli, Gina Annalise, D.M.A., The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 2011, 46; 3457576
Abstract (Summary)

This study presents a biographical overview of William Henry Squire's life, performance, and teaching career and a pedagogical analysis of his out-of-print works for cello and piano. The study is organized into two main parts. The first reviews Squire's career as a cellist and composer, with special focus on his time performing in the music halls of early 20th-century London.

The second part consists of a detailed description of nine of Squire's forgotten and out-of-print works for cello and piano. This section includes discussion of the technical and musical challenges of the works, most of which are completely unknown to cellists today. As with Squire's better-known works, these pieces are excellent for intermediate-level cello students. The document is intended to be a teaching "menu" of sorts which details the attributes of each work; therefore the catalogue is organized by difficulty, not by opus number.

The nine works chosen for this study are Squire's Chant D'Amour , Gondoliera, Souvenir, Légende, Berceuse, Slumber Song/Entr'acte , Sérénade op.15, Gavotte Humoristique op. 6, and Meditation in C op. 25.
