Title: Strings Can Swing: Redefining the Role of Large String Ensembles in the Jazz Context
Author: Ferraretto, Julian Peter
Issue Date: 2020
School/Discipline: Elder Conservatorium of Music
Abstract: The aim of this dissertation is to enable the large string ensemble to develop a more meaningful engagement with jazz and jazz-related genres. It accomplishes this through a combination of pedagogy, composition and performance based research. The transcription and analysis of the playing styles of jazz violin masters Joe Venuti and Stuff Smith underpins the generation of a pedagogical approach for the large string ensemble equipping its players with necessary technical and stylistic tools. These tools are then applied to new original works by the author, resulting in recordings and performances for both string and symphony orchestras which demonstrate their effectiveness while contributing to the available jazz repertoire for string sections.
