Abstract

While preparing the master's recital the writer had three major objectives: a desire to perform music from the most important periods of clarinet literature; to demonstrate characteristics interpretations of music of each period including styles of phrasing and various types of articulation; to demonstrate the ability to control various technical, dynamic, and tone production problems on the clarinet.

The objectives of this paper are to trace briefly the historical development of the clarinet; to give a short history of each composer whose works were involved in the recital; to give an analytical review of each movement, including form and major themes; and to present some of the technical and interpretive problems of each movement, and solutions to them.
