Abstract or Summary
  • Aaron Copland is known by many as the founder of American Music and is still considered one of the pre-eminent composers to come from the Americas, particularly North America. He composed from 1917-1973, with many of his most recognizable works composed in the early 1940s. Duo for Flute and Piano was composed from 1969-1971 as his last substantial composition. Much attention has been given to his earlier compositions, but Duo is underrepresented in scholarly literature. Through the use of timelines, an analytical methodology developed by professor Jan LaRue at New York University, phrase structure and compositional patterns are readily identifiable for all three movements, which can inform performance technique. Additionally, since the first movement of Duo is motivically dense, a motivic map is used to visually trace the motives as they transform over the course of this movement. Emphasis is placed on aural identification of motives and phrases, with the intent to inform performance interpretations.
