Specific research interests

I am currently completing a Masters degree examining Erich Wolfgang Korngold�s Violin Concerto (1946), which to date has received very little academic attention, despite its being the most popular and performed of Korngold�s works. I aim to do this by establishing a methodology that best reflects the actual processes undertaken by a performer in the preparation of the work for performance. Rather than just utilising traditional forms of analysis that centre on such aspects as harmonic language and structure, I am drawing on a phenomenological framework to address multiple levels of discussion.
