Lincoln, Nebraska: August, Copyright c Stephanie DiMauro Abstract Sigfrid Karg-Elert is one of the few composers of the early twentieth century whose style moves fluently between tonality and atonality. His most noteworthy and voluminous body of work was for the harmonium and the organ; however, he also wrote a number of wind compositions.
Among these are eight works using the flute in a primary role, almost all of which were composed around the First World War. Of the seven works, there are two for flute alone, one for flute in a chamber ensemble, and four for flute and piano. Though all of these pieces are well-crafted, interesting, and fill a much-needed role in the flute repertoire, only the unaccompanied works are performed with any regularity. Recently there has been a surge in interest in his other flute works.
This study is an in-depth exploration of the four works for flute and piano: Sinfonische Kanzone, opus , Sonata in B-flat, opus , Impressions exotiques, opus , and Suite pointillistique, opus It includes a discussion of their unique place in the flute repertoire as well as their stylistic characteristics.
A detailed analysis of each work is provided, including a summary of formal structure, texture, tonal plan, and motivic use. Chapters Two through Five investigate the four pieces. Also included is historical and contextual information for each work as well as a theoretical analysis. Advisor: John R.
The 30 Caprices originated from the urgent need of forming a connecting link between the existing educational literature and the unusually complicated parts of modern orchestral works by Richard Strauss, Mahler; Bruckner, Reger, Pfitzner, Schillings, Schonberg, Korngold, Schreker, Scrjabin, Strawinsky and the most modern virtuoso soli. They are therefore meant in the first plate to serve as a technical preparation to these already existing works, viz: to help the flautist, by means of progressive and special studies, to attain the high standard demanded by them. Besides this the Caprices explore new and untrodden paths in technique; a technique which may be required from one day to another in some new impressionistic or expressionistic work. Sure signs are to be seen that the demands made of the liveliest of all the woodwind instruments are rapidly increasing from year to year.

The family finally settled in Leipzig in , where Siegfried received his first musical training and private piano instruction. At a gathering of composers in Leipzig, he presented his first attempts at composition to the composer Emil von Reznicek , who arranged a three-year tuition-free scholarship at the Leipzig Conservatory. From August to September he worked as a piano teacher in Magdeburg. Having returned to Leipzig, he started devoting himself to composition, primarily for the piano encouraged by Edvard Grieg , whom he greatly admired ; and in he met the Berlin publisher Carl Simon, who introduced him to the harmonium. From then on until his death he created one of the most significant and extensive catalogs of original works for this instrument.
