This independent study serves as an educational resource regarding the pieces which I performed for my graduate recital. It includes information about the works and their composers, as well as an analysis of each work that was performed, and overview of my experiences while learning the works. In my reflection of my experiences, I offer insight which may be used in the instruction of these works and advice for what students may find most difficult pertaining to them. This paper is organized in the program order of the recital. Each section will begin with information about the composers and historical background of the pieces where applicable, follow by an analysis of the piece or movement as a whole, and concluding with my reflection on learning and performing these works.
