Abstract

This study is an analysis and guide to the performance of the trumpet solo works of Peter Lawrence. The following compositions will be examined: Dialogue von Mendez mit Liebe for two trumpet soloists doubling on cornet and wind ensemble (2001); Concerto for Trumpet Doubling Flugelhorn and Orchestra (2005); and Concertino for Two Trumpets, Strings, and Rhythm Section (2005). The composition and premiere history of each piece will be discussed. Each piece will be analyzed for characteristic harmonic, melodic, rhythmic, and orchestration elements. Each piece will also be discussed from a performer's perspective ,with recommendations for practice, difficulty analysis, and suggestions for performance. As much as is possible, input from the composer has been included. The dissertation concludes with a list of Peter Lawrence's compositions. It is hoped that this study will bring these pieces, as yet unperformed in the United States, to the attention of trumpet performers; and help anyone interested in learning or studying these works.
