|Class 14||Thursday, March 19|
We have a new reading on Beethoven and the intellectual climate of 18th-century Germany. Jan Swafford, Beethoven, Anguish and Triumph, 40-55.
Assignment #3: Beethoven's Childhood
This one should really be extremely easy. :)
It is due before Class 18 (Thurs, April 2).
Assignment #4: Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 1
I have another page of material that covers this piece very thoroughly with annotated videos and audio commentary. This takes the place of the kind of thing I'd normally do in class. Then, Exercise #4 asks you eight questions about it.
This one is also due before Class 18 (Thurs, April 2).
Still on the agenda
I owe you at least one more Beethoven reading, a take-home exam, a guide for your paper project, and a bibliography for said project.
