Next week we have a TIMED ESSAY on Monday 8th (A) / Tuesday 9th (B) on symphonic SECOND (slow) movements.
Also next week you need to hand in for composition by the end of THURSDAY 11th:
- a completed rough draft of your Rondo (at least ABA’CABA’)
- a log sheet that documents your use of the 10 WCT Fingerprints (see file below)
This week you need to submit correction to your A section, a B section sketch and a reworked A section that finishes in the tonic to round of the first ABA’
Due Monday (A) / Wednesday (B)
For NEXT week (Monday 1st / Wednesday 3rd) I want correction plus a C section
I will check scores in the DOUBLE lesson next week to see that students are using Moodle notes and class notes to annotate their scores fully. They should have at LEAST as much as my annotated scores on Moodle. You should by then have completed Movements I, II and III. You will have to come to several tedious score annotating ‘detentions’ if you have not done this.
We will have a short answer quiz on the Haydn SECOND movement next week on Monday/Tuesday.
Looking ahead a little further, we will have an ESSAY on second movements on the Monday/Tuesday of the w/c 8th (last week of term)
Composition: Submit A section
Wondering what to do? Go back to the Rondo from Haydn 2 for inspiration:
- A group end of TUESDAY (moved from Monday)
- B group end of THURSDAY
Note: this week there is no lesson on MONDAY for A group so I will squeeze this in on Tuesday.
PERFORMANCE PAPERWORK DUE IN WEDNESDAY
From last week
– make sure you have submitted your Storm and Love Theme on Moodle
– listen to the Andante movement from the Haydn with the score at least twice
Internal Composition Assessment
You need to write your first section in draft and hand it by the end of Monday (A) / Wednesday (B) next week.
Composition (for the end of NEXT week – 8th March)
Write a sketch for orchestra (at least Haydn 104 size but can be larger) that depicts part of a storm.
You must include at least two of the storm features listed here on the ‘Storm Features’ page
AoS A (for next week’s double lesson – please bring to the lesson)
Find a programmatic piece by a Romantic composer and make brief notes as follows:
- summary of composer (dates, key pieces, key facts)
- summary of piece (date, what is it about etc.)
- one extract from the piece (a Youtube clip or similar) and what you think is particularly interesting or effective about the music (orchestration, harmony etc.)
Revision and Review
Review both the first and third movements of the Haydn. You should use the resources on Moodle including the annotated scores, blank scores for testing yourself and the quizzes. I expect everyone to have done at least one quiz on each movement as a minimum. There will be a test in your first SINGLE lesson of the week.
Compile notes on Topic B – First movements and Sonata form. There will be a timed essay in your LAST lesson of the week. Use the Essay Topic Summary (B) revision frame document to help you.
Composition (due Friday 15th February for both groups)
This week your task is to finish your first movement as follows:
Sonata form OVERVIEW (download table showing whole structure)
- Make corrections and improvements
- Chords and features must be labelled
- You must have DYNAMICS and ARTICULATION
- After your second subject in the dominant you need to write a Codetta (we will look at this later in the week) in the DOMINANT
- For your recap, the minimum is to copy and paste your first subject as is, change your transition so it stays in the tonic then copy and paste the first part of your first subject again (preferably with some small instrumention or other changes)
- Adapt your Codetta so it is a Coda to finish in the TONIC (again we will look at this later in the week)
