Abstract:
The descriptive orchestral music of American composer George Whitefield Chadwick (1854-1931) follows a progression from the Symphonic Sketches (1895-1904) to Tam O'Shanter (1915). Chadwick incorporates French, Russian, and radical German musical ideas into his earlier conservative romantic approach, resulting in a new and individual style. Tam O'Shanter represents the culmination of this descriptive style. This study will attempt to identify traits and characteristics in Chadwick's descriptive orchestral music, and by doing so, will help conductors and other musicians identify works as they relate to his different style periods. The symphonic ballad Tam O'Shanter will be studied in depth to demonstrate the culmination of this style.
