8:30-9:15 AM               Research Session 1:  "Alternate Transcriptions of Major Repertoire for Harmonie Ensemble" (Millennium)
                                     Richard Frey, clinician​

  • Many are well acquainted with the classical harmonie repertoire:  Mozart's serenades, Krommer's partitas, and so on.  Transcriptions also make up a significant portion of this repertoire.  As these works have been rediscovered and embraced during the past two generations, certain of these transcriptions have become "standard," to the exclusion of many others.  Based on Frey's work in the music archives throughout central Europe, this session seeks to highlight lesser-known or unknown transcriptions of standard repertoire, and compare them to their well-known counterparts through live performance of excerpts of these works.


 

8:30-9:15 AM               Research Session 2:  "Troka:  A Dance Pantomime for Children by Silvestre Revueltas" (Century)
                                     Matthew Dockendorf, clinician

  • This session will reveal Ravueltas' impact on the musical world as well as his influence on the quickly advancing technological society through his highly-personified piece, Troka.  Originally for chamber orchestra, the piece features "Troka the Powerful," a character created to educate children of the 1930s.  Recently, Dr. Dockendorf created a wind transcription in hope the piece and composer gains more attention.

This presentation will give an overview of the educational trends and describe ways they could be impacting the band classrooms of your students and area instrumental music directors.

8:30-9:15 AM                   Research Session 5:  "Unlocking the Early Wind Music of Edgard Varèse" (Millennium)
                                         Peter Lillpopp, clinician

  • Between 1922 and 1925 Edgard Varèse wrote three important works for winds:Hyperprism, Octandre, and Intégrales. Considered by many to be a musical outsider, Varèse eschewed serialism focusing instead on large-scale formal structures, timbre, and rhythm. Lillpopp’s presentation will detail and explain Varèse’s unique compositional techniques in an attempt to help unlock these complex pieces and will demonstrate how they influenced future composers from Elliot Carter to Frank Zappa.

  • The session will address issues involved in increasing attendance at wind ensemble/band concerts and developing a substantial audience that would appreciate our “repertoire.” The session will provide sample programs and repertoire for the institution of a long-term audience and repertoire development plan.
