Summary
Aaron Copland, Louise Talma and Walter Piston were among the many young American composers who studied with Nadia Boulanger at the American School in Paris during the 1920s and 1930s. During that same time Igor Stravinsky was composing in a new style that perplexed some, but seemed to others as a logical and progressive step. After the premiere of Stravinsky's Octet , considered by many as his first fully neoclassical work, many composers--including Copland, Talma and Piston--began to imitate his style, which has come to be known as "neoclassical" because it epitomizes the twentieth-century modernist aesthetic of precision, order and control. While features such as contrapuntal textures, classical forms and surface gestures that sounded "Stravinskian" began to appear in many other composers' pieces during the 1920s and 1930s, other deeper-level characteristics of Stravinsky's style, such as intersecting octatonic and diatonic pitch structures, were absorbed into the compositions of many of the students of Boulanger, who was in fact an avid proponent of Stravinsky's new style. In this dissertation I discuss Boulanger's perspective on Stravinsky's neoclassical style; Copland, Piston and Talma's views on Boulanger and Stravinsky; several essential features of Stravinsky's new style and current interpretive theories; and how these essential features manifest themselves in works by Copland, Piston and Talma
