  • Agababa-Shaked, Gil (Taideyliopiston Sibelius-Akatemia, 2018)
    This project describes the most popular clarinet systems, their history, and their potential for future development. The historical survey at the beginning of the paper provides the necessary context for the systems used today. This information may help clarinet players to gain a better understanding of the modern instruments and their potential for further improvement. The collaboration between musicians, instrument makers, and composers was and still is of utmost importance for the development of instruments. The significance of such collaborations is confirmed by instrument maker Jochen Seggelke. It may seem that the current gap between the German and French clarinet systems can never be bridged. A closer look reveals that in addition to matters of taste and tradition, politics, wars and industry changes contributed to the widening of this gap from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. In the last few decades, however, the Western world enjoyed relative political stability along with advances in technology, which facilitated a lively exchange of information and opinions. Moreover, the overwhelming variety of music available to musicians and audiences nowadays results in a more international musical taste. Instrument development is subject to taste, and so the current development of both systems promotes flexibility. Players can produce remarkably individual sounds but also very similar timbres on both systems if they share similar sound esthetics. In the past three hundred years, players, makers, and composers attempted to combine all available ideas and advantages concerning the physics and mechanics of the instruments. This collaboration, which was so common in the clarinet's history, continues today.
  • Domínguez Almela, José Carlos (2019)
    This research project investigated the current role of contemporary classical music in music education in Andalusia (Spain). The context for this topic came up from my own experiences as a music student and performer in two different environments: Spain and Finland. Besides this, I also explored three research questions related with the main aim of my research: What is the current interest of students in learning contemporary classical music? How does the stage of study at which contemporary classical music is introduced influence the perception of the student about this music? What are the benefits of learning contemporary classical music during the study years? The principal problem that I found in this topic was the limited resources about contemporary classical music in conservatoires or music academies. So, I had to consult literature focus at elementary and secondary schools. For the task of finding answers to these questions, I used the Schafer’s theory from the second half of the 20th century, creative music education, and the history life of a clarinet teacher and active performer in contemporary classical music repertoire. He gave his opinion about these themes and brought out his life experience as a music educator for over twenty years. The results showed the crucial role of teachers in the music education of students. Through their formation in contemporary classical music, they increase the interest and motivation of the students on it. In addition, contemporary classical music offers benefits for the students and it could be incorporated at any level of the studies, including low stages of studies.
