The Duo Sonata for Two Bassoons by Sofia Gubaidulina: A formal and performance analysis with comments on extended techniques, contemporary notation and Gubaidulina's style

Jefferson. T Campbell, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

Composer Sofia Gubaidulina has gained worldwide acclaim for her use of unique sounds and techniques within the structure of traditional forms. Her Duo Sonata for Two Bassoons is a prime example of what composers may accomplish when familiar with the possibilities and capabilities of the instruments for which they write. The use of extended techniques such as multiphonics, harmonics and microtones within the Duo Sonata requires the performers of this work to familiarize themselves with the ways in which these sounds should be produced and the ways that they are notated. This document includes a brief look at the increased use and the development of extended techniques as well as a biographical sketch of Sofia Gubaidulina and contemporary musical notation. A formal analysis of the Duo Sonata and a performance analysis constitute the bulk of this document's examination. ^
