Date of Defense 2009-10-26 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe baroque era boasted two of the world’s most well-known composers, Johann Sebastian Bach and George Friedrich Handel. Lost in the historical web are many of the composers whom they influenced. Christoph Graupner (1683-1760) is one of these composers. While the compositional skill of Graupner will never be as revered as Bach or Handel, his contribution to the trumpet repertoire is nevertheless significant.
This treatise provides biographical information, critical commentary and an edition of Sinfonia, GWV 511 by Christoph Graupner. Composed around 1748, this work is scored for 2 clarini, 2 violins, viola and cembalo. The “autograph” manuscript for Sinfonia, GWV 511 is located at the Hessische Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek in Darmstadt, Germany. Copies of the manuscript were obtained by this author in October of 2007. This piece was chosen because of the extensive use of trumpets in a chamber music setting.
There are several works by Graupner that include trumpet yet few have been published. Sinfonia, GWV 511 is a substantial work in the style of an Italian sinfonia. Topics of performance techniques pertaining to this work will also be examined, with a specific focus on the clarino register, articulation and ornamentation.
While the manuscript in Darmstadt includes a full score and parts, this critical edition will include a score in modern notation. This edition will contain all of the composer’s marks for dynamics, articulations, and tempi reflected in the original manuscript. Other editorial marks will be differentiated from those of Graupner’s using alternate notations. Finally, a realization of the figured bass will be incorporated into the score.
