The original scope of this project was to have several conducting experiences and written records about the conductor’s experiences. Due to COVID-19, the focus of the paper has shifted to documenting the preparation, rehearsal, and performance "Recombobulation" (2016) by Theresa Martin. Using the templates found in the "Teaching Music Through Performance in Band" book series as a model, combined with the author’s personal narrative of their experience, this paper aims to serve as a resource for both people considering programming this piece of music as well as early career conductors who strive to improve their craft.

Music and Intimacy in Jane Austen's Novels

Description

Jane Austen’s depictions of musical performers and listeners in her novels suggest her belief that musical performances should strengthen intimacy between people, both between listeners and performers as well as among listeners. Austen commends music for its power to increase

Jane Austen’s depictions of musical performers and listeners in her novels suggest her belief that musical performances should strengthen intimacy between people, both between listeners and performers as well as among listeners. Austen commends music for its power to increase intimacy through honest expressions of taste, which more often arise in private performances, but she warns against its power to decrease intimacy through pretentious displays of taste, which more often arise in public performances. Austen’s belief that music allows for this healthy intimacy indicates that music has great significance in society. Austen suggests that music has a greater importance to everyday life than many may originally suppose, as it is a universal connection between people. Ultimately, Jane Austen’s perspective of music’s great power both to expose pretentiousness and to cultivate intimacy should lead all of her readers to recognize and respect music’s true power and to consider seriously the importance and role of music in their own lives.

This lecture recital was an hour-long event held in Recital Concert Hall at ASU School of Music on Sunday, March 20th, 2022 at 12:00 PM. The lecture recital a hybrid of a lecture and a musical performance. The musical performance, under the guidance of pianist Dr. Robert Hamilton, was a live piano performance of the pieces "Northern Scenes" written by Chen Yi, and "Secret & Glass Gardens" written by Jennifer Higdon. The lecture portion, under the guidance of music theorist Dr. Nicholas Shea, covers a biography of the composers, followed by a generalized formal analysis and description of musical themes and motives that are within the scope of their respective pieces. The overall product for audience members is to get an introduction to living female composers, Chen Yi and Jennifer Higdon, as well as develop a general understanding of their compositional techniques and influences. The audience is also informed of 'what to listen for' by discussing the overall structure and formal analysis of each piece before hearing it played live. This is necessary given the context that these compositions have been written within the past two decades, it is very helpful to know what will happen so that listeners have an easier time following along to this very new music.
