dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to provide pedagogical materials and interpretive suggestions for three piano duets by American composers: Morton Feldman’s Piano Four Hands, Richard Felciano’s Gravities, and George Crumb’s Celestial Mechanics (Makrokosmos IV). Chapter 1 provides an overview of the three selected compositions and a review of relevant literature. Chapters 2 through 4 provide specific performance guidance and pedagogical suggestions. Chapter 2 investigates the aleatoricism of Piano Four Hands, discussing various interpretations by several performers. Chapter 3 explores the pedagogical challenges found in Gravities, focusing on its rhythmic complexity. Chapter 4 examines Celestial Mechanics (Makrokosmos IV) within the broader context of Crumb’s use of extended techniques and unusual timbres, and his interest in theatricality.
