Please make sure that you submit your compositions (Composition 1 on FRIDAY and Composition 2 next Tuesday)
WCT (due next Thursday 16th November)
Please write a 15-mark essay on the following title:
‘Discuss the use of dance and folk influences in the symphony. You should refer to a range of relevant Classical and Romantic works and you must make detailed reference to both set works (Haydn and Mendelssohn)’
You will find development of the symphony notes useful but you will also need to do some of your own research, particularly on general influences on the Minuet and on Haydn in general.
You should write a short introduction then about two thirds of the main body should be on wider listening and the other third on Haydn and Mendelssohn. You should finish with a short conclusion.
