Water in the Glass
Draper, Natalie R.

2009, MM, University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music : Composition.
Water in the Glass is a musical composition about the synthesis of a lot of different ideas. It is largely a reflection of my fascination with the music of Debussy (lyrical, impressionistic) and Stravinsky (dissonant, angular). In keeping with this juxtaposition, the title is a pun—for the music is not only about the juxtaposition of optimism and pessimism and waves and points, but it is also, in many respects, a sound poem about water. It is my goal that the performers not only emphasize the differences between these juxtaposed sections, but also, and perhaps more importantly, the similarities—this is especially important in the last section, which serves as a synthesis of the ideas that have been presented.
