Reading Assignment / Assignment #9
Assignment #9: Reading About the Classical Period is based on the introductory material in our textbook. Due before Class 15.
In the eighth edition, you'll want to read pp. 138-153, or in the seventh edition pp. 149-163. The questions in the online quiz should follow the same ordering of the chapter, so you could have your book open and answer questions as you go.
Assignment #10: Metric Subdivisions
We also have a FUN new rhythmic concept to think about, the little rhythmic subdivisions that occur in each beat. Check out the class notes for more details. Then try the free practice exercise and Assignment #10, which is due before Class 16.
For more info on Sonata Form, you can read pp. 159-164 in the eighth edition, pp. 169-175 in the seventh.
Eine kleine Nachtmusik, first movement
This is our Sonata Form movement from class. I'll embed the video I made that guides you through it.
(This is also based on the "book recording," so you could compare Craig Wright's notes on 162-164 in the eighth edition, pp. 172-173 in the seventh. The timings will be the same.)
Mozart, Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, K. 550, first movement
We also heard the first movement from this symphony, one of Mozart's great masterpieces. This is much darker and more complex than our Eine kleine example. We get a real development and a general sense of "crisis" throughout.
