Length:  10-12 pages of text (not including the Bibliography and Endnotes)


 Topics: Chopin Nocturne in B Major and the Man Behind it



The body of the paper


The assignment is to summarize how your piece has been discussed in the literature. The organization of the paper is up to you. What you find will determine what you emphasize,

but try to refer, where relevant, to the various topics we have discussed in class: 

 editorial problems resulting from the sources


            performance issues in your piece

            the compositional history of the piece (brief if it’s not interesting)

            how the piece has been analyzed

            critical studies

            the relevance of gender/feminist studies

            the reception history of the piece


How much space you devote to each topic will be determined by how interesting the topic is in the case of your piece. You are welcome to give your own perspective, but your starting point in each case should be what the literature says.


Throughout the paper you should refer to the available literature on your piece, as it applies to the topic you are discussing. You may use Endnotes or Footnotes for this.  When you refer to or quote the literature, you need to cite it in Turabian format (be aware of the difference in citation format between bibliography and endnotes).  Musical examples or photocopied pages from scores should be clearly labeled and put at the end of the paper.


The Bibliography will be a final, comprehensive version of the one you have been compiling.  The overall format for the Bibliography is on the back of this page. List entries alphabetically by author in sections E-G, using Turabian format.


My expectation is that you have used RILM exhaustively and that you have pursued additional sources found in Guides to Research, the dissertations you ordered, Grove Online, ML410 books, books on the genre of your piece, etc.  I should not be able to find anything you haven’t found.


Here again is a website that has a short summary of Turabian format for notes and bibliography:


See also the Indiana summary of specifically musical citations on a separate pdf file I’ve given you.


Bibliography Format



A.  First edition(s)

If the work was published simultaneously by more than one publisher in more than one city, list each one.  Indicate whether the edition is parts or score.


B.  Collected editions [M3]

Include title, volume, editor, publisher, city, date [in the order indicated by Turabian].  Indicate if the critical report is in the same volume or a separate volume (or if there is none).


If you are looking at a 20th-century reprint (Edwards, Dover, Kalmus, etc.) of a 19th-century edition, list the reprint edition separately below the original one.


C.  Thematic catalogues (some of them don’t actually include theme incipits) [ML134]


D.  Guides to Research/Bibliographies  [ML134]


E.  Dissertations


F.  Books

Include biographies, book-length studies devoted to the composer or the genre of your piece.

Do not include collections of essays by different authors such as Festschriften,

conference reports, etc.  Essays in collections should be included under Articles.


G.  Articles

This section should include essays in journals or in multi-author collections (see F) and reviews if they are significant.


H.  Miscellaneous


You can include here things like liner notes to recordings, material from the internet, unpublished materials, personal communications, etc.
