Composition (Iain’s group)
Use the resources on Moodle to complete the ‘Sam Fox film music’ composing exercises.
Spend at least as much time listening to and studying examples in the ‘Narrative Music’ area on Moodle as you do actually composing.
Submit your pieces on the Moodle Music AS area before the start of Friday’s lesson.
1. Write a short essay comparing the Haydn and the Bach in terms of their harmony. This is for Wednesday 4th November
Please note the following:
- structure the essay around the harmony comparison questions (one paragraph for each question addressing both works)
- read the Edexcel and RG notes on the Music AS Moodle in the resources folder for Bach and Haydn so that you can generalize your answers, using the specific passages that we have looked at for examples
2. Write two short paragraphs outlining some examples of how Haydn uses humour in the last movement of his quartet. You need to read at least sources 6 & 7 in the resources folder on Moodle to deepen your understanding of this quartet
