Vocabulary words should be chosen from the glossary of the textbook. • Type your concert report using double-space, 12-size font, 4 pages minimum. • The last paragraph of your report should summarize your overall reaction to the concert. Which of the pieces did you like the best/least? What did you think about the concert hall? How were the acoustics? What did you perceive about the audience? Did anything surprise you about the concert? Would you like to attend a “classical music” live concert once the pandemic is over? Would you recommend the experience to friends and family? General Questions to Keep in Mind • What was your general reaction to the concert? How did the performance sound to you? • Was the music performed well? o Were the musicians rhythmically “together”? o Were they playing/singing in tune? o Did any instruments or voices stick out? o How would you rate the musicians’ technical ability and the energy of their performance? Did they seem well prepared for the concert? • Which composition did you like best? Why? (e.g., what specifically did you like about the piece itself or the way it was performed?) • Which composition did you like least? Why? • Did any of the compositions trigger an emotional response from you? • What were your specific feelings or thoughts in response to the music? • Is this type of concert experience new to you? • How do you think that might influence your perceptions of what you heard and observed? • What makes a performance an artistic event? Dr. Virginia Covarrubias Specific Points to Consider You may want to focus your discussion and analysis of the concert on one or more of the following points. Describe what you heard and observed using the following musical terms, elements, and concepts discussed in class. • Genre (symphony, concerto, string quartet, etc.) • Stylistic period (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, etc.) • Mood (emotion conveyed by the music and performers) • Pitch To what extent does pitch vary throughout the piece? • How do changes in pitch reflect changes in mood? o Rhythm (beat, accent, tempo, meter, syncopation) • How were the elements of rhythm used to create special or interesting musical effects? • Dynamics (level of sound) Identify changes in dynamics and discuss the effect these changes create. • Tone color (bright, brassy, warm, ringing, hollow, etc.) • Mode (major, minor) • Harmony/Melody Discuss the balance (or lack of it) between the melody and its ″accompaniment.″ Did you hear consonance, dissonance, or a combination of both? • Motives/Themes Identify and note where individual motives and themes are first introduced and subsequently reappear in each piece. • Texture (monophony, homophony, polyphony, etc.) o Form (sonata form, A B A, theme and variations, etc.)
