Abstract:
This study explores two evolutionary principles related to Jan Swafford's string orchestra work From the Shadow of the Mountain: the musical evolution of the composition, including its use of octatonic pitch collections and the quotation and transformation of two hymn tunes, and the performance--related evolution of the work from its original version to its final version. The study documents changes made to the score in the course of rehearsals for performances of the second version along with suggestions from composer and conductor in creating the third version of the score.
