Abstract/Description: This treatise provides an annotated catalogue of solo piano repertoire by currently living women composers who were born in the second half of the twentieth century and are from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. It serves as a practical reference source and guide to this literature. The first chapter discusses the current situation for Asian women composers and the significance of this study. The second chapter is a catalogue of the composers and their solo piano works that I collected for this study. Biographical information and descriptive summaries of the pieces allow performers, teachers, and scholars to easily survey this particular repertoire, choose pieces for study and performance, and discover new works. The final chapter provides critical commentary and offers my observations on sources of inspiration and elements of musical style in the collected repertoire. The appendix includes a table of composers and works for readers to locate pieces quickly based on the origin of the composer or the level of difficulty and duration of the piece. This project contributes to a growing body of recent scholarship on new music by Asian composers. It aims to introduce more of this repertoire into the general piano literature so that the music of Asian women composers can be discussed and performed more regularly.
