Assignment #12: Form Timeline Project
This is the one project that we are doing on paper! In class you should have received one of these packets which tell you which piece to work on. (If you don't have one please email me.) Everything you need for your project can be accessed through one of these links:
This project is due before Thurs Nov 14 but I'll look at it before then if you like.
Assignment #13: Metric Subdivisions
Assignment 13 asks you to listen to pieces and determine how they are chopping up (or "subdividing") each beat - as before the two basic options are duple and triple, but now we are listening on a "micro" level within the beat.
This one is due before Class 17 (Tues, Nov 5).
Assignment #14: Forms Comprehension Quiz
On our forms quiz you answer 18 questions about the four standard Classical-period patterns we've learned - Minuet and Trio, Sonata Form, Theme and Variations, and Rondo. This includes questions on the "model pieces" by Mozart that we've looked at.
I think you really want to have another tab open to look at the blog and class notes while you answer the questions.
This one is due before Class 18 (Thurs, Nov 7).
Quiz Three News
Quiz three is coming for the 2:30 and 4:10 class on Tues, Nov 19. We won't start talking about the Romantic Period until class 18, but if you want to get a jump on things here are playlists:
Maybe as a little self-assignment to help you focus on the music, listen all the way through and try to pick your most favorite and least favorite track.
Mozart's Don Giovanni
In a surprise change-up of plans we looked at an abbreviated version of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni Act I. We'll view a shorter chunk of Act II next week.
Here's the complete video we saw in class. This is streaming directly from my website, file is 460MB.
