This dissertation consists of two parts: an original, three-movement composition for orchestra of approximately fifteen minutes duration entitled Secret, and an analysis of the work. The compositional goals of Secret are to utilize a highly chromatic style, to exploit colorful instrumentation, and to pursue a thematic process in all three movements in a cyclic manner while also incorporating variation techniques. The analysis portion of this document examines the melodic and harmonic materials, texture, rhythm, orchestration, and formal structure including variation techniques. The discussion of pitch content will utilize pitch-class set theory, as set forth by Allen Forte in The Structure of Atonal Music.
