GRADUATE RECITALS by VINCENT VOHRADSKY B.Mus., Brandon University, 1999 A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF MUSIC in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES (Orchestral Instruments) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA May, 2007 © Vincent Vohradsky, 2007 ABSTRACT The thesis for the Master of Music degree in Orchestral Instruments consists of two full-length recitals, or the equivalent, with emphasis on solo works, but also including representative chamber works. My two full-length recitals were performed on November 19, 2002 and May 19, 2007. Department of Music Masters Recital Vincent Vohradsky, t r u m p e t M a t h e w M a , piano Tuesday, November 19, 2002 - 7pm UBC School of Music Recital Hall Intrada for Trumpet Otto Ketting (1935- ) Concerto for Trumpet Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837) The Hollow Men Vincent Persichetti (1915-1987) Intermission Sonata for Trumpet and Piano Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) The Debutante Herbert L. Clarke (1867-1945) recital is in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Masters of Music Department of Music Student Recital UBC Vincent Vohradsky, trumpet Saturday, May 19, 2007 - 5pm St. John's Shaughnessy Anglican Church Sonata for Trumpet Henry Purcell (1659-1695) I Pomposo II Andante maestoso III Allegro ma non troppo Terry Fullerton, organ Henry Purcell is generally considered to be one of England's greatest composers. He has often been called England's finest native composer. Purcell incorporated Italian and French stylistic elements but devised an English style of Baroque music. Concerto for Trumpet Alexander Goedicke (1877-1957) Greg Caisley, piano Russian composer Alexander Goedicke was born and raised in the heyday of the Romantic period. He remained faithful to this style amid a musical world which continued to become more progressive in its harmonic structure. His single-movement Trumpet Concerto (1930) is no exception. The rich harmonic sonorities, akin to that of Schumann and Brahms, exemplify Goedicke's Romantic approach. The works most notable feature is its extensive and demanding cadenza. INTERMISSION Quiet City Aaron Copland (1900-1990) Terry Fullerton, organ David Michaux, cornet Quiet City (1940) is based on some incidental Copland wrote for a play of the same name by Irwin Shaw. The playwright evokes the nocturnal introspections of many different kinds of people in a great city. The play provides two significant musical images: a jazz trumpet solo played by a young Jewish boy, and a limping string figure representing (in the composer's words) "the slogging gait of a dispossessed man". The concert piece which Copland arranged from this suite is in effect a short continuous suite, ending as it begins with the stillness of the night and the loneliness of the trumpeter. Originally scored for trumpet, English horn, and strings it will be performed here with muted cornet acting as the English horn and organ in place of the strings. Sextet in E flat minor for Brass Oskar Bohme (1870-1938) I Adagio ma non tanto - Allegro molto II Allegro vivace III Andante cantabile IV Allegro con spirito Larry Knopp, cornet David Michaux, cornet Ben Kinsman, horn Jim Tranquilla, euphonium Ellis Wean, tuba Of German descent, Oskar Bohme spent most of his life in Russia. Although a trumpeter himself, he is most notably remembered today as a composer of several Romantic works for trumpet and cornet. Bohme's compositions, in the conservative style of his teacher Salomon Jadassohn, combine the legacy of Mendelssohn and Schumann with Russian influences. The best known of Bohme's compositions are his Concerto for trumpet in E minor and his Sextet for Brass in E flat minor. The Sextet, dating from around 1906, undoubtedly ranks among the finest brass music produced in the Romantic era.
