Essay: Identify features of the Poulenc that are typical of the Neo-Classical Style
1) Read the revision notes on Moodle (1 and 2 in the Poulenc Folder)
2) Review and improve your essay planner sheet
3) Write an essay which makes at least ten points (illustrated with bar numbered references wherever possible). You will need to discuss what is Classical and what is more unexpected (the Neo bit of Neo-Classical)
Make sure that the annotations in your Faure and Van Morrison pieces are up to date and that you are familiar with these works. We will start next half term with a quick review of both your knowledge and annotations.
