Abstract/Description: This treatise is an adaptation of a series of two lecture recitals given on the use of Schenkerian methods in discovering expressive ideas for performance. The first lecture recital used examples from the repertoire of German lieder, while the second lecture recital focused on adapting the process for trombone solo repertoire not limited to the common practice period. Examples include “Auf dem Flusse,” “Einsamkeit,” and “Letzte Hoffnung” from Franz Schubert’s Winterreise, the third song from Johannes Brahms’s Vier ernste Gesänge, the final song from Ludwig van Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte, Romance by Carl Maria von Weber, Cavatine by Camille Saint-Saëns, and the second movement from Jacques Castérède’s Sonatine for Trombone and Piano.
