Abstract

This Master’s Thesis Recital, recorded on the accompanying compact disc, contains music written by composers from five different stylistic epochs: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionist, and Modern (twentieth century). The diversity of pieces allowed me to present different compositional methods, structural forms, and individual composers’ styles. These program notes provide historical and biographical background, analyses, and musical examples for each piece.
