Abstract

My M.M. thesis presents a diversity of violin literature from Bach to the present time. The pieces I chose feature the violin in different settings: unaccompanied solo, sonata with piano, concerto with orchestra, and showpieces accompanied by piano. The contrast of the light refined styles of Bach and Mozart compliment the flashier show works of Bloch and Kreisler, while the David Stock Chameleon for solo violin represents the other end of the spectrum and the latest in violin literature. The Mozart Concerto in A Major will be performed with a chamber orchestra. This is a unique opportunity, and it is not done very often in solo recitals.
