Abstract (type = abstract)
Since the invention of the saxophone in 1840, there have been relatively few compositions written specifically for the baritone saxophone. Even less common are baritone concertos, defined as large ensemble works that feature a baritone soloist. Since the 1950s, however, there has been a substantial increase in this repertoire. This has been facilitated by virtuosic artists in the jazz idiom, who developed new performance techniques and commissioned many new works. The creation of large ensemble compositions featuring baritone began in the 1950s through the collaboration of Harry Carney and Duke Ellington. This trend continued with baritonist Gerry Mulligan commissioning several works, and then creating a concerto himself. Following the use of the baritone as a solo instrument in jazz, classical composers inspired by jazz predecessors began creating works for baritone and large ensemble in the 1980s. Jazz composers have also been influenced by classical music, as evidenced by the application of concerto forms and practices beginning in the 1970s. The increase in virtuosity, timbral effects, and instrumental range has aided the exploration of these baritone compositions. This dissertation explores the history and development of the baritone saxophone and how the confluence of jazz and classical music have led to the increased development of baritone concerto repertoire. I have analyzed nine important works for baritone saxophone and large ensemble, as well as composing and analyzing my own twenty-two-minute concerto for baritone, chamber orchestra, and drum set titled the Jeru Concerto.
