1.    The concept of program music endows instrumental music with communicative potential. Compare two very different, yet thoroughly programmatic pieces: Hensel's "September" fromDas Jahr with Berlioz's "Dream of a witches' Sabbath" from Symphonie fantastique. For each piece what is the program? What extra-musical media are used to deliver this message? How does the music participate in this process? How does Hensel's character piece speak to her cultural circumstances? How does Berlioz's symphony speak to his?
