ABSTRACT: My research explores the most recent symphonic compositions of Jennifer Higdon that have propelled her to national fame. A stylistic analysis of blue cathedral, Concerto for Orchestra and City Scape reveal compositional traits unique to this composer that differentiates her music from contemporaries. A principal reasoning for such differences is fundamentally related to her compositional philosophy and her self-described intuitive style. This study examines and defines this style with pertinent illustrations of its numerous manifestations in her music. As a living composer, Higdon is able to contribute significantly to numerous questions about her experiences and the analysis of her music. Her intuitive method remains her primary compositional technique and as such, this document places great emphasis on defining this strategy with illustrative examples.

American composers are at the forefront of a renaissance in concert music, in the process expanding the very definition of the category. The impact of digital technology on the creative process and the unprecedented diversity of contemporary composers are arguably among the catalysts driving the rebirth. In this series of personal interviews with some of the most prominent composers of art music currently working on the American music scene, composer and educator Robert Raines leads the intimate conversations through subjects ranging from the source of inspiration to work habits, the realities of the business of music, and the impact of technology on music and life in the 21st century. The musicians who participated in these conversations are as different from one another as might be imagined, both in styles of music and approaches to life and art, resulting in a series of stories that offer a kaleidoscopic view of the many paths to creativity, yet a common thread that runs through the interviews is the passionate artistic drive that is shared by all. The inspirational stories of struggles and successes, told in the artists' own words and distinctively framed by their individual personalities - humorous, curmudgeonly, serious, serene, and playful by turns - is a delightful and thought-provoking journey full of personal insights, advice, and sharp observations on composing music in a changing, technology-driven world. A loving homage to the artistic spirit, this book is a must-read for students of composition, professors and scholars of music, composers and aspiring composers, and anyone interested in the subjective process of writing music. This rich and entertaining collection provides a unique glimpse into the workings of the creative spirit in the digital age.
