My Master thesis consists of a graduate-level piano recital and a supporting document of program notes. The repertoire for this recital includes the following works: The Prelude and Fugue in E major, BWV 878, from the Well-Tempered Clavier - Book IIby Johann Sebastian Bach; Piano Sonata in F major No. 22, Op. 54, by Ludwig Van Beethoven; Etude in G-sharp minor, Op. 8, No. 9, by Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin; Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brilliante Opus 22 by Frédéric Chopin and Three Preludes for the Piano by the young Chinese composer, Shuai Zhang. For the benefit of all pianists studying these pieces, therewill be discussion on the biographical information and the musical style of each composer and selection. Following, there will be an analysis of each piece and performance suggestions will be provided.
