Daniel B. Stevens, associate professor of music theory, joined the
faculty at the University of Delaware in 2008 after earning his Doctor
of Philosophy in Music Theory from the University of Michigan. Stevens’s
dissertation, Brahms’s Song Collections: Rethinking a Genre,
explores the role of genre in the identification and interpretation of
these works. In 2007, the American Brahms Society awarded Stevens the
Karl Geiringer scholarship for his research on Brahms’s song
collections. Apart from his work in 19th-century song, his other
interests include studies in music theory pedagogy, performance and
analysis, musical and literary genre, phrase rhythm and rubato, musical
aesthetics and the relationships between music and ruins.
Stevens has presented papers at national and international conferences, including Performing Romantic Music: Theory and Practice held
at Durham University, U.K. in July 2008. At the 2008 joint meeting of
the American Musicological Society and the Society for Music Theory,
Stevens was an invited panelist on a discussion hosted by the American
Brahms Society titled “Brahms at 175: A Study Session on Current and
Future Trends in Brahms Scholarship.” Most recently, Stevens presented a
paper on Brahms’s song pairings to the 2009 annual meeting of the
Society for Music Theory.
As the assessment liaison between the
UD Department of Music and the Center for Educational Effectiveness,
Stevens has overseen significant improvements in the way student
learning is assessed within the department. Through Stevens’s efforts,
the Department of Music was awarded a sizable grant to develop and
implement an e-portfolio system to be used by all music majors beginning
in the 2011 Fall Semester.
Aside from his work as a music
theorist, Stevens remains active as a pianist and cellist. He received
his Bachelor of Music in Performance from the University of South
Florida in Tampa, where he studied with composer-pianist Robert Helps
and cellist Scott Kluksdahl. Later, he earned a Master of Music from the
San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he studied piano with
Evelyne Brancart and Sharon Mann, and chamber music with Mark Sokol,
Bonnie Hampton and Nathan Schwartz. Stevens performs frequently with his
wife, oboist Elizabeth Stevens, and with the New Castle Trio, which he
co-founded in 2007.
