Abstract

This thesis examines the 'response piece' genre, wherein composers are asked to 'respond' to a pre-existing work by an eminent composer from the past. The thesis explores the question of how composers can engage with pre-existing musical works in the response piece genre through three case studies from the Swedish Chamber Orchestra's Bach Brandenburg Project: Brett Dean's Approach - Prelude to a Canon, Olga Neuwirth's Aello - ballet mecanomorphe, and Anders Hillborg's Bach Materia.
