Denti, Joseph R.
ProQuest LLC, D.A. Dissertation, George Mason University
This study examines "L'Histoire du Soldat" from the conductor's perspective. The review of literature examines texts on score study and conducting technique, analyzes writing on the interpretation of Stravinsky's conducting approach and his view on conductors, and provides works on the history and analysis of "L'Histoire du Soldat." The literature review is used to evaluate dissertations, theses, lectures, and performances, as well as explore Stravinsky's original manuscripts and sketches of "L'Histoire du Soldat." Challenging excerpts were chosen and in conjunction, specific conducting resolutions are stated for preparation of future performances. A manual is incorporated for the advanced conductor in order to assist in his or her planning, development, and implementation stages of rehearsing and conducting "L'Histoire du Soldat."
