AbstractThe document contains a short biography of German composer Bernhard Krol, and discusses portions of three of his works that feature the horn. The works that are examined include Laudatio for solo horn, the "Miserere" movement from Krol's Missa Muta op. 55 for horn and organ, and "Toccata" from Horati de vino Carmina op. 30, which is scored for soprano (or tenor), horn, and piano. This document includes a performer's analysis of each portion, and examines the origins and compositional history of the motivic and melodic materials that Krol draws his inspiration from for these works. The author also describes some possible benefits from expanding a performer's analysis beyond the traditional parameters such as rhythm, harmony, melody, to include an examination of the historical lineage of the known source materials used by a composer.
