Composition (for Tuesday 26th by the end of the day)
This is really the main priority at the moment. Make sure you use the models provided on Moodle and get at least a second subject done plus improvements to your first. Getting a Codetta written too would be even better. Remember to look at the wide range of String Quartet textures available here on alevelmusic – there are two whole pages of varied examples to look at and listen to.
Get organized with your recital – get the Performance Programme Submission form done as soon as possible.
AoS A (WCT)
Listen to the exposition of first movement of the Mendelssohn (at the end of the WCT topic) with the score and consider where the First subject, transition, second subject and codetta might be. When you have had a think yourself, feel free to see what the wisdom of the internet has to say on the subject and see if you agree. Please make sure you have done this before next Monday – we will begin the lesson with a discussion of this with no preparation time – I will pick on people at random so make sure you are ready!
Composition (Due by the end of TUESDAY 19th September)
You need to type up some bullet points outlining the main models for your piece and what you are taking from them and upload on Moodle along with an initial idea for first subject or whatever.
AoS E (Twentieth Century) – For THURSDAY 21st September
Make sure you have listened to the Poulenc Second Movement with the score (you have the score – the track is on Moodle)
