Abstract

The purpose of this thesis document is to review and assess using research the practice and performance techniques that were utilized and developed in preparing and presenting a full length degree recital. This thesis will also provide historical, cultural, and etymological context and examine the stylistic characteristics and playing techniques necessary in order to successfully prepare and perform the chosen repertoire in recital. Material from this thesis will act as the program notes for the recital itself on April 4 2017, while portions of the discussion on practice techniques and the challenges that each of the pieces presented will be used as the material for the short lecture that will accompany the playing portion of the recital. This thesis and recital will act as a chance to challenge myself and present new opportunities and methods of learning for myself and for those reading this thesis in the future.
