Quiz Two News

Our quiz two date will Tues, Oct 17 Thurs, Oct 12. Please contact me if you will have a conflict due to Shemini Atzeret + Simchat Torah, so we can make alternate arrangements.

The quiz two study guide is now up.

Here is the complete playlist for our Baroque unit.

Spotify Version
Blogged Version for Phones (includes one video you can't get on youtube.)

Assignment #7: Meter Round Two

We are going to do one more round of meter homework before the quiz. It is due on our quiz day (class 13).

Remember that we still have those free practice exercises, both the Baroque version and Old Person Indie Rock version.

Our class notes also include more advice on strengthening your metric sense through practice and the diagrams for how to conduct.

Assignment #8: Quiz Two Preview

OK, all notes and blogs for the quiz are up, so we can do the quiz two preview. Once again this has real questions that may appear on your quiz. Due before Class 13 (quiz day).

The Baroque Dance Suite

J.S. Bach, Suite No. 3 for Solo Cello in C Major, V. Bourrées I & II

This is a movement from a Baroque Dance Suite by J. S. Bach. Here's an embedded video which illustrates how both the dances are in binary form.

(The piece is also danced by our friends from the Mark Morris Dance Group, and Yo-Yo Ma is the cellist.)

(As always with our embedded, non-youtube videos, be careful not to use up your cellphone data.)

Here is linkage to the original recording that made Yo-Yo Ma a household name:

Track Links: Spotify Naxos

Bonus: Free Sheet Music

Virtually all of the music from this class is actually available online as free, copyright-free sheet music. The best site for this sort of thing is called IMSLP.

J.S. Bach, "Little" Fugue in G Minor

J. S. Bach, Well-Tempered Clavier Book I

Bonus: Handel's Water Music

You might also want to read what our book says about the Baroque Dance Suite. Craig Wright's choice for this is a movement from Handel's Water Music Suite.

Here is some linkage, in case you want to hear it. This is not the official book recording - it is a little faster, so things happen a little sooner than it says in the notes. Not a quiz piece.
