Date of Defense 2009-04-14 Availability unrestricted AbstractThis treatise “György Ligeti’s Piano Études: A Polyrhythmic Study” focuses on polyrhythm in his Piano Études. The purpose of this study is to present the complex polyrhythmic sections that are influenced by African Music, Conlon Nancarrow’s player piano music, fractal theory, hemiola, and gamelan music.
For this project, the rhythmic sections of the Piano Études are reviewed from two different perspectives: the influence of Nancarrow’s player piano music which usually conveys polytemporal relationship, and African music which often provides a repeated rhythmic pattern like ostinato.
In addition, this document presents technical problems and solutions for Ligeti’s Piano Études, including score reading, fast tempo, perpetual pattern with accentuation, dynamics, and polyrhythmic sections.
