Professor Marie Rolf
Marie Rolf is Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Professor of Music Theory at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Her research interests range from the music and manuscripts of Debussy and Mozart to topics in analysis and performance, keyboard skills, and the pedagogy of Music Theory. In 1991 she brought to light sixty new bars of Mozart's Rondo for Horn in E flat, KV 371., publishing the first edition of that work for Horn and Piano (Bärenreiter), and in 2004, she authenticated a completely unknown mélodie by Debussy 'Les Papillons', of which she published a facsimile transcription and essay on the work (New York Public Library). Marie Rolf is a founding member of the editorial board for the Debussy Œuvres Complètes; her critical edition of La Mer appeared in 1997, and her volume of Debussy's songs (composed in the 1880s) is scheduled to appear in 2013. She has lectured in London, Paris, Tours, Geneva, Melbourne and Montreal among other venues.
