Recital Program Guidelines for Teachers and Chairs

In order to make the job of preparing professional-looking recital programs easier, please follow the guidelines below when you fill out the recital entry forms for your students.

  • Include the full name of the composer.
    For example:

    Johann Sebastian Bach
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    Ludwig van Beethoven

  • In rare instances, initials may be used due to space limitations.
    For example:

    C.P.E. Bach

  • Use full names for composing teams.
    For example:

    Nancy and Randall Faber
    Dallas Weekley and Nancy Arganbright

  • Use the word and in place of the ampersand (&).
  • When possible, include complete information regarding the piece, including the opus number, key of the piece, etc.
    For example:

    Bagatelle No. 25 in A Minor (Für Elise)

  • Op. is used for opus, capital O.
  • No. is used for number, capital N.
  • The letter of the key and the mode (Major or Minor) are always capitalized: C Major, A Minor. No hyphens are used.
  • Do not use # or b for sharp or flat keys. Use the word sharp or flat with a hyphen: A-flat Major, G-sharp Minor.
  • Include BWV numbers for works by Bach, K. numbers for Mozart, k. numbers for Scarlatti, etc.
  • arr. is used in front of the arranger's surname, no capital a.
  • A movement of a work is indented on the next line, with the tempo marking following the appropriate Roman numeral to designate the movement.
    For example:

    Sonata in C-sharp Minor, Op. 27, No. 2
                I. Adagio sostenuto

  • In the case of a piece taken from a larger work, put the name of the larger work in italics.
    For example:

    In the Hall of the Mountain King from Peer Gynt Suite

    Waltz from Fledermaus

  • In the case of Baroque works, the Roman numeral may be omitted preceding the movement listed.
    For example:

    French Suite No. 5 in G Major, BWV 816

  • For the Junior Bach events, the back cover should include the definition of abbreviations used within the program, such as AMB and WTC.
