Abstract:The piano works of Brazilian composer Armando Albuquerque (1901-1986) are surveyed in this dissertation. A discussion of the chronology of the piano works establishes the relationship between Albuquerque and his cultural environment; the identification of the main elements of his musical idiom delineates the individuality of Albuquerque's style and the main characteristics of his piano writing. The importance of Albuquerque's piano pieces within the development of Brazilian contemporary music is evaluated and particular attention is given to his independence in relation to the nationalistic movements in Brazilian music. The main periods in Albuquerque's piano music are described, including the "estilo trepidante" of the l920s, the mature period of the late 1940s, and the period surrounding the composition of the massive Peca para piano 1964.
An introductory chapter on Brazilian music between 1900 and 1930 is included, along with a list of editions and recordings of Albuquerque's piano pieces.
