dc.description.abstract The main body of this document is comprised of an analysis of the Figures de resonances (1970/76) and 3 preludes (1994) of Henri Dutilleux. The analyses are the result of the writer's own experience in studying and performing these works. Among the techniques discussed are the exploration of sonority and resonance, recurring pitches or sonorities (which the writer refers to as focus tones or focus chords), mirror writing (or inversion), and the continuous variation of given sonorities or motivic cells. The document begins with a biography of the composer that highlights his most significant works, from the Piano Sonata (1948) to Sur le meme accord (2002) for violin and orchestra. It is intended to give the reader a sense of where the Figures de resonances and 3 preludes fit into the composer's output as a whole.
