dc.description.abstractThe goal of this thesis is to explore specific aspects of creativity from the point of view of the composer. I have found, in looking back over twenty-plus years of writing music, that I have had a tendency to gravitate towards attempting to represent or pay tribute to real people and places from my life experience using an impressionistic compositional approach. While using a singular approach can lead to an extensive exploration of a discipline and lead to a recognizable and, therefore, marketable style by which a composer becomes known, I felt that a journey into a different concept could help broaden my own creative perspective. To that end, this thesis involves the composition of two pieces using a programmatic approach intended to represent the narrative arc of two fictional characters from Dostoevsky's Rodion Raskolnikov and Shakespeare's Sir John Falstaff. To embody someone who only exists in the imagination of his own creator, I feel that using a programmatic approach works better in bringing out the subject.
