Year 13 Homework w/c 4th December

Composition Submission (WEDNESDAY 5th December)

Please submit all composition Sibelius files onto Moodle

In addition you need to fill out log submissions for both compositions

Please print out all composition ONE material but not anything else

WCT (for first day back after Xmas)
Please complete the following essay:

“Discuss how composers have used music to convey humour, drama and narrative in the symphony from 1750-1820”

I would like this essay to follow the same format as an exam essay (i.e. some earlier works, Haydn 104 and Mendelssohn then some later works) but I would like you to develop the essay so that it is longer than it would normally be. In other words, I want lots of detail on the Haydn and then as many wider listening works as are relevant. I would talk about the way in which Classical music can make drama and humour by playing with expectations then how the Romantics develop much more dramatic and narrative music. You must talk about Beethoven and Berlioz before moving onto later Romantics.
