Abstract

This performance dissertation consists of three recitals that feature works for the

horn written or published in the late 20th and early 21st centuries by the following

American composers: David Amram, Paul Basler, Randall Faust, Randy Gardner, Douglas Hill, Verne Reynolds, Gunther Schuller, and Kerry Turner, who are all either performers, professors, and/or pedagogues of the horn. The recitals include works written for unaccompanied horn, horn and piano, two horns and piano, and horn quartet. The following is an alphabetical listing of the pieces performed on this recital: David Amram's Blues and Variations for Monk; Paul Basler's Canciones, Folksongs From The British Isles, Serenade, Reflections and Three Pieces for Horn Quartet; Randall Faust's Call And Response and Scherzo for Horn and Piano; Randy Gardner's Why?!; Douglas Hill's Reflections for Horn Alone; Gunther Schuller's Nocturne and Trois Hommages; Kerry Turner's Sonata for Horn and Piano, Fanfare for Bares, and Horn Quartet No. 1; and Verne Reynolds Elegy. The written portion of this dissertation includes program notes for each piece performed, in addition to biographies and a complete list of works written for the horn by each of the eight composers. The purpose of this dissertation is to familiarize both professors and performers of the horn with more recent, non-standard

literature that can be used to augment traditional teaching material, or be used in addition to standard literature in amateur, student and professional performances.
