Date of Defense
This thesis presents the compact disc recording of my 60-minute vocal master’s recital, accompanied by extended program notes providing historical background and analysis of the following repertoire for bass baritone: Großer Herr, o starker König from Weihnachts Oratorium by J.S. Bach; W.A. Mozart’s aria Madamina, il catalogo è questo from Don Giovanni; Songs and Dances of Death by Modest Moussorgsky; three French art songs by Camille Saint-Saëns; three Argentine art songs by Carlos Guastavino; and the aria Shake the Heavens from El Niño by contemporary American composer John Adams. This repertoire is in five languages and was carefully selected to display different styles from four different centuries.
