WHAT TO WRITE: THE CONTENT OF A REPORT The Concert as a Whole You should begin your report with a brief description of the concert attended, including the name and type of the performing group or soloists, the place, the date and time, and the music you heard. You will also want to note whether the performers were attempting a historically "authentic" program. For example, in music by Johann Sebastian Bach, was a harpsichord (rather than a piano) used? For a symphony by Haydn or Mozart, was the size of the orchestra reduced? Did the performers use old instruments, or reconstructions of old instruments? Then, you may want to describe your general reaction to the concert. Did you enjoy it? Did this event make you feel like going to other concerts in the near future? Following this introduction, the paper might focus on the pieces you enjoyed most and your reaction to the performances. Individual Compositions In discussing individual compositions, you will probably want to cover some of the following points: Musical styles. How did the composition correspond to what you have learned about the stylistic period in which it was composed- Baroque, Classical, etc.? Your appreciation of a work is often enhanced when you recognize its musical style. Musical genres and forms.
