Abstract

This thesis presents extended program notes for a sixty-minute graduate violin recital consisting of the following repertoire: Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, K. 218 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Poème pour violon et orchestre, Op.25 by Ernest Chausson and Violin Sonata No. 9 in A major, Op.47 (“Kreutzer”) by Ludwig van Beethoven. These works encompass different compositional methods, structural forms, and individual composers’ styles. These program notes provide historical and biographical background, analyses, and musical examples for each piece.
