On conducting recitals held in October and December of 2013, and May of 2014, four pieces— Danza de los Duendes, Three City Blocks, Asclepius, and The Good Soldier Schweik Suite—were performed in partial fulfillment of a Master of Arts degree in Instrumental Conducting. This supporting document connects these pieces to their composers’ styles and backgrounds, and explores how compositional procedures and techniques—when set against the backdrop of the composers’ lives and compositional intent—impact the overall emotional content of each work.
