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 Pelléas et Mélisande. 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
