  • The full thesis for this degree consists of an audio recording, a public recital, and notes to accompany the recorded and live performance. The recording includes the following works: Johann Sebastian Bach, Largo from the Trio Sonata No. 5 in C Major, BWV 529, arranged for piano by Samuel Feinberg; Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111; and Robert Schumann, Carnaval, Op. 9. The notes explore the literature on these works and describe the distinctive pianistic and expressive elements of each from the perspective of the performer.
