Listening Assignment: Introductory Concepts
To complete this assignment you must choose a listening selection from Section 1: Basic Musical Concepts (any of the classes from "Unity and Variety" up to and including "Folk Music, Art Music, and All That Jazz"), and write a two-paragraph summary. NOTE: You may use any piece EXCEPT "See Here the Conqu'ring Hero Comes" (which was used in Assignment 1).
Your summary must include the following to receive full credit:
The name and composer of the selection.
The location of the selection.
(e.g. Introductory Concepts: The Structure of Music)
A short analysis of the piece from the point of view of a 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.
