As a referential listener, I decided to analyze Frédéric Chopin's Étude in C Minor , Op. 10, No. 12, since I was best able to relate to and decode the meaning of this piece of music. Étude in C Minor , Op. 10, No. 12, located in, Introductory Concepts: The Structure of Music, reminded me of a time of distress, yet not approaching the situation with anger, rather rushing to work through it and make an accomplishment. I associate this song with the Great Depression, since this song was used a lot during the silent films played during the Great Depression. The song is also well-suited for the Great Depression, since instead of being defeated, the citizens of The United States worked hard to make it through the tough times of that era.
