Rudolph Jettels’ Der Vollkommene Klarinettist: A Pedagogical Analysis and Suggested Utility
Dyachenko, Andriy Valentinovich
Doctor of Musical Arts
An analysis of each of the fifteen short works found in the first volume of advanced etudes for solo clarinet comprising Rudolph Jettel’s Der Vollkommene Klarinettist, from a pedagogical standpoint, to determine a best application for each etude in the development and encouragement of specific technical and interpretive clarinet competencies. These analyses are discussed, and each etude examined for the specific musical and technical challenges posed by it. Solutions are offered for the instruction necessary to master each such challenge, with a general overview and advice as to how best to prepare and perform each etude in its entirety, once the individual problems have been overcome. Liberal use of examples from the music serve as illustrations, and are annotated by the author.
