You are required to post a review of one live or recorded musical event detailing music from one or more of the musical periods (i.e. Baroque, Classical, Renaissance, etc…) covered in this course. Part of this assignment is for you to search out a performance of music that is foreign to you, with the intention of writing about it. You are not allowed to cover any music found on your listening lists or found in your textbook. Failure to follow this rule will negatively affect your grade. There is a great deal of music to explore, and I am challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and find some music that might appeal to you from the past. YouTube is a great source for you to explore to complete this assignment. This review is worth 100 points and should be 2-3 pages in length (double spaced, 12 point font, and standard margins). I strongly encourage you to write each review in a word processing program and save it on your computer, then simply copy and paste it into the designated area found in the “Music Review” tab on Blackboard. No reviews will be accepted after 11:59 pm on December 8, 2017.
A music review combines reporting with personal opinion. Write your reviews as if your audience is the general reading public and you are a person who attends concerts for pleasure.
As you write about the live concert or recorded musical event,deal with aspects that you consider most important or striking. Word choice, spelling, grammar, and punctuation are important. Write your review as an essay, not in question and answer format. Be honest and show that you’re generally interested in the concert you are reviewing.
Your post should be in the following format:
Opening Paragraph: Briefly describe the performance using some of these questions;
WHO – who was performing?
WHAT – what was the event and what works were performed. (Please include the musical periods from which the works came from).
WHERE – where was the event held?
WHEN – day and time?
WHY – what was the purpose?
HOW – type of concert and music (opera, concerto, symphony, ballet, etc…)
Body: The bulk of the review might address some of these questions. Remember to use essay format.
Questions about the performance:
What about the concert or performance was new or different for you?
What impressed you about the concert you watched or attended and why?
Which selection or parts intrigued you the most? Explain.
What song(s) did you find enjoyable? Why?
What song(s) did you not like? Why?
Questions about the performers:
What was your opinion about the performers’ presentation of the music? Stage
How good are they as musicians?
How well do they play together?
What are the instruments used in the performance?
Conclusion: Your conclusion should summarize your overall impression of the concert or recorded performance you are covering. Share your reactions and opinions. What did you like, what did you dislike and why? Finally, give the performers a pat on the back or suggestions for improvement, and would you recommend someone going to a future concert.
