To complete this assignment, you must choose a listening selection from the “Basic Musical Concepts” section of this course (any of the classes that you have listened to from “The Performer’s Role” up to and including “Folk Music, Art Music, And All That Jazz”), and write a two paragraph summary. Note that “See Here The Conqu’ring Hero Comes” from Class 1: Unity and Variety may NOT be used for this assignment.
I chose- FrÃ©dÃ©ric Chopin, Ã‰tude in C minor, Op. 10, No. 12, “Revolutionary”
Your summary must include the following to receive full credit:
The name and composer of the selection.
The location of the selection. (i.e. Introductory Concepts: The Structure of Music)
At least a two-paragraph analysis from the point of view of the referential listener. (Read the description of the Referential Listener, and use the attributes listed to analyze the selection.)
Finally, indicate what musical “concept” is illustrated by the selection (e.g. musical idea, ensemble, solo performer, variation, etc.), and state intelligently whether you think the selection was effective in doing so.
