Abstract for the AMS Southwest Chapter’s April 11, 2015 Spring Conference
This is an abstract for a presentation that was given at the American Musicological Society Southwest Chapter's Spring Conference on April 11th, 2015. The presentation was given alongside a poster display. This abstract highlights Serge Jaroff's Don Cossack Choir, which was founded at a Turkish concentration camp in 1921, and went on to perform around the world. This abstract gives details on the history of the choir and the type of concerts that Jaroff gave. In addition, it explains the lack of scholarly attention that Jaroff and his choir have received. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc802001/
Cendrillon
Libretto of the 1759 pastiche-style comic opera "Cendrillon," by Louis Anseaume. The songs were contributed by the singer-composer Jean-Louis Laruette and Egidio Duni, which they likely adapted from fashionable tunes. "Cendrillon" (Cinderella in English) premiered in Paris at Foire St-Germain on February 21, 1759. The opera underwent two revisions before the definitive version of 1764. Anseaume adapted the plot the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. This copy includes (from pp.54-63) notated melodies of airs and recitatives. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc39252/
