dc.description.abstract This project was both interesting and enjoyable. I certainly learned about the composers and the music itself, but also about programming music for putting on a recital.Each composer brought something interesting to the program. The reader can read the program notes to get a good sense of each writer's characteristics and contributions. I especially enjoyed beginning the concert with a piece written by a Horn player. The historical overview also demonstrated the development of the literature and the influence of time period upon the composer's conventions.Programming the concert came rather easily. My thesis advisor had some very strong recommendations for which pieces to perform. I had begun the project by deciding to program around the Brahms, and it expanded from there. I consulted a number of recordings and looked at some other pieces for the ensemble. After this, I did not see another work that would better demonstrate the literature for the ensemble while offering an enjoyable concert for the audience. One of the major strengths of the project was the diversity of the music itself. The audience found each piece enjoyable and different from each other. Every comment that I received included something about the strength of the program.Putting on this recital was one of the best musical experiences I have ever had. I appreciated the audience and their comments. I hope to have opportunities to perform recitals again in the future.
