A2 Music 16/10/09

I am so sorry not to be in your lesson again. You have a pack each waiting for you on my desk but here are your instructions too:

1) Listen to Act 1, scene 1 of PelléasetMélisande. Click here to download the playlist to Spotify.
2) DO some research into the following:
- The plot of the opera
- When it was written
- Musical features of Impressionism (use good Music books etc)
3) Do your best to fill in the boxes of the attached handout. You must have done some reading on the impressionist musical style before you are able to do this.
4) Consider how this music contrasts with Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder. Use the criteria in those boxes to help you to form some kind of answer – you don’t need to write an essay but can you make some notes on the contrasts for next lesson?
5) Please do it.

Due in: Friday 23rd October 2009

Year 10 GCSE Homework Thu 8/10/09

I'm so sorry to have missed all your lessons this week.

Please do some research into the following:
· The origins of waltz (where, when)
· The type of people who would have danced it
· The musical characteristics of the waltz (structure, tempo, metre, rhythm, melody, instrumentation..)
· The venues and occasions in which the music was performed – di dthe venue have an impact on performance?
· Names of composers and performers of the music
Make sure you use the internet to help you - don't just use the hand out you were given in lessons. You can write something, do something on powerpoint or nice handout with pictures. You won’t have to present it to anyone – just hand it in to me. Please be as detailed as you can. Due:Tuesday 13th October 2009.
