Abstract:
This document examines lyrical and dramatic aspects of the songs of composer Daron Hagen. The study shows how Hagen's uses of articulation, melody, form, dynamics, harmony, text painting, word painting, and tonality enhance the dramatic elements of the poems without sacrificing lyricism. The research began with performances by this writer of the works of Hagen and continued with interviews and further performances. Discussion of the lyrical and dramatic elements of Hagen's vocal works forms the body of the document and illustrations facilitate study of the works. An interpretive guide for two song groups will assist vocal performers to understand these songs and possibly lead to improved interpretive practices. A complete listing of the composer's vocal works concludes the document.
