Abstract:
The purpose of this document is to present research on methods of arranging music for viola and piano (or viola and orchestra) from music originally written for clarinet and piano (or clarinet and orchestra). Subjects of research include arrangements made by the composer as well as those made by other arrangers. Principal works studied include the Brahms Clarinet Sonatas Op. 120, Nos. 1 and 2, and the Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A. Examples are also included from other relevant works fitting the criteria. Following the analysis on arranging techniques, I have used knowledge gained from my research to prepare an arrangement for viola of the Saint-Saens Clarinet Sonata in E-flat, Op. 167. Saint-Saens, who wrote no solo music for the viola, wrote many pieces for both the violin and the cello, some of which are standard in the solo repertoire for these instruments. Since there is a dearth of viola music by romantic composers, a Saint-Saens arrangement will help fill a gap in the solo repertoire for the viola. This sonata has qualities that make it an ideal candidate for a successful arrangement for viola. Following this project, I will attempt to publish the arrangement, so that it may be available to violists around the country.
