Master of Arts (M.A.)
A musical score prepared in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Music degree.
The work was begun in September of 1951, and was completed in April of 1962. It is cast in three movements: fast, fugal style; slow, a variation-rondo; fast, sonata form. A closely knit structure is achieved through melodic and rhythmic relationships throughout. Thus, the second theme of the last movement is derived from the opening theme of the first movement; subsidiary material from movement one appears again as developmental material in movement two; the first phrase of the opening these in movement one is employed developmentally in the third movement.
