GRADUATE RECITALS by THOMAS RI BECKMAN B.Mus., The University of Cape Town, 2006 B.Mus (Hons)., The University of Cape Town, 2007 A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF MUSIC in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES (Viola) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (Vancouver) October 2010 © Thomas R.L Beckman, 2010 II Abstract Graduate Recital in April of 2009 constituted 75 minutes of solo material for solo viola, and viola and piano. Works performed consisted of J.S Bach’s 4th cello suite (transcribed for viola), a viola sonata by Glinka, then intermission followed by Britten’s Lachrymae, and a sonata for viola and piano by Hindemith. The final Graduate Recital, performed on October 1St of 2010, consisted of J.S Bach’s 1St suite for cello (transcribed for viola), Haydn’s Divertimento for viola and piano, Bruch’s Kol Nidrei and the viola sonata by Shostakovich. Both recitals reflect a wide range of styles varying from Baroque in the l’7” Century to Romantic in the 19th, to the modem period with Shostakovich’s profoundly reflective viola work in the late 20th Century. The music presented in both recitals was chosen for its soloistic flare and intellectual reflection, and served ideally for the demonstration of a finely tuned technique with regard to rhythm, intonation, tone production and musical interpretation.
