Abstract

This thesis contains an original work for orchestra that features programmatic elements and musical gestures referencing previous generations of composers as well as other influential relatives of the author that are then recombined into a personal style. The document also contains commentary about the piece’s personal, historic, and cultural contexts, as well as a theoretical analysis addressing the form, structure, and harmonic content of the work.
