dc.description.abstract MUSIC FOR NINE INSTRUMENTS is a single movement composition for flute, oboe, Bb clarinet, bassoon, horn in F, two violins, viola, and 'cello. The work is organized into six sections, each of which examines and utilizes the compositional material in unique ways. The syntax of the work is achieved by the employment of pitch-class sets. Two sets of pitches are used with their sub-sets. The properties indigenous to the two sets are that they are of seven and five-members respectively, the five-member set is not a subset of the seven-member set and, when the two sets are catenated, they form the universal-set of the twelve pitches of the chromatic scale. Additionally, the work exploits the individual characteristics of the instruments and explores, in various ways, the textural combinations available.
