TRACING THE STYLISTIC ELEMENTS OF ROBERT STARER'S PEDAGOGICAL WORKS TO THE TWILIGHT FANTASIES AND SONATA FOR PIANO, NO. 3

by VAN DYKE, RICHARD GERARD

Abstract (Summary)
This document’s primary function is to trace the twentieth-century stylistic elements present in Robert Starer’s music, including lyricism, rhythm, atonality and technique. It includes the discussion and grading of the four pedagogical sets, Games with Names, Notes and Numbers, Sketches in Color-Set One, Sketches in Color-Set Two and At Home Alone, providing a resource in selecting repertoire for the National Music Certificate Program. Three advanced works, Excursions for a Pianist, Twilight Fantasies, and Sonata for Piano, No. 3, are discussed, outlining their formal design and structure. The document draws together the selected compositions by Starer, tracing the stylistic elements common in the elementary, intermediate, and advanced works.
