dc.description.abstractWalter Piston’s Concerto No. 1 for Violin and Orchestra is shown to be a musically accessible and technically idiomatic work that is pedagogically beneficial as a preparation for later study of the Sibelius, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky concerti. Motivic and thematic transformations are examined, as well as a correlation drawn between Piston’s definition of counterpoint and his use of counterpoint in this work. Stylistic influences examined include those of Bach and Stravinsky, and though Piston was not a nationalist in his music style, elements of the “American” sound of the 1930s and 40s found in this concerto are discussed.
