HOW THE DEGREE TO WHICH INSTRUMENTALIST AND COMPOSER WORK TOGETHER AFFECTS THE COMPOSITIONAL PROCESS, THE COMPOSITION AND THE FINAL PERFORMANCE
This research focuses on the compositional process from the point of view of the performer. It examines the extent to which collaborations with composers have an effect on the composition and subsequent performance. More specifically: how do compositions in which you, as an instrumentalist, were involved during the composition process compare to compositions where this was not the case? How does the relationship with the composer contribute to the final performance?
