Abstract

It is traditional in a master's recital for violin to include representative works from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and/or Modern periods. Further, it is customary that the Baroque selection be one of the unaccompanied Bach sonatas or partitas . The program selected in this graduate recital conforms to these standards and to the recommendations of my violin professor, Mr . Richard G. Strawn.

To understand these customs that have developed for violin master'• recitals, it is important to consider the violin literature to see how the forms have varied in the different historical periods. Each new form has brought new technical and musical difficulties to be mastered.
