Write Program Notes of about 1,500 words (double spaced). These notes should:

—First, lay out the “idea of the program.” “The Prelude and Fugue”

—Then write about each piece in the order they appear on your program, saying something specific about each performer/performance, and trying to make smooth and relevant associations from one piece to the next and, if possible, to the program as a whole. Alternatively, you might stress moments of difference and contrast from one piece to the next: juxtaposition can be a powerful way to organize the succession of a pair of pieces, or also a method of proceeding through the entire recital. You should reflect, too, on the instruments themselves, and their relation to the performances.

Finally, in your notes we would like you to refer along the way to specific ideas, issues, and even readings.
