MUS 1010- Assignment 11 (Romantic Period) Please read your textbook pages from 225-253 and write short answers to the following terms. 1. Rubato To intensify the expression of music, romantic performers made use of rubato, which is the slight holding back or pressing forward of tempo. 2. Program music Program music is instrumental music associated with a story, poem, or scene. A program was the nonmusical element that is usually specified by a title or by explanatory comments. The aim of most program music is expression more than mere description. A programmatic instrumental piece can represent the emotions, characters, or events of a certain story. It can also evoke the sounds and motion of nature. Program music became prominent in the romantic period when music is associated with literature. 3. Absolute music Absolute music is instrumental music having no intended association with a story, poem, idea, or scene. Absolute music is also known as nonprogram music. 4. Program symphony A program symphony is a composition in several movements within a program. Each movement would usually have a descriptive title such as those found in Berlioz’s Fantastic Symphony , which has 5 movements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
