Modest Mussorgsky : Dawn on the Moskva River, Introduction to the Opera “Khovanshchina”

Sergei Rakhmaninov : Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, op. 18
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov : Symphonic Suite “Scheherazade” op. 35
As you listen to the concert, then as you write your review/critique, think about and
address the following questions:

1) Concerning the compositions performed on the program:

—    What are the titles of the compositions which you heard, who were the composers, and
when (and during what period) were they written?
—    What was the instrumentation? (= what instruments were used – large orchestra, small                 orchestra, piano solo, piano & violin, voice & piano…?)
—    What were the genre of the compositions performed (symphony? opera? Lied? concerto?…)
—    How did the music you heard compare to compositions we have listened to in class?
(for example, is it similar to something we have studied? If so, how? – if you hear                 a “concerto,” you might compare it to Vivaldi’s “Spring” Concerto; if you hear a
“symphony,” how is it the same as/different from Beethoven’s 5th Symphony?
If you hear a composition from the Romantic period, how does it compare with
the characteristics of Romanticism which we studied in class?, etc.)
—    What characteristics of the music help you to identify it with the period during which
it was composed?
—    What is your reaction to each composition (i.e., what was your impression of the music –
did you like or dislike the music, and why?, etc.)

2) Concerning the performance:
—    How is live performance different from recorded performance?
—    What is your reaction to/impression of the way the performers play the music? (is it a
“good” performance, is it an “emotional” performance, are the players “in tune,” are
the musicians skillful at playing their instruments?, etc.) If you feel that it was a good
performance, why? – if you think that it was not an effective performance, why not?

3) And, finally:

— What is your overall reaction to your concert experience? (i.e., what effect did the concert
have on you, and why/how?)

Along with your written report, submit:
(a) your ticket stub from the concert
(b) the printed concert program

Due Date:  The assignment can be turned in at any time during the remainder of the course,
but no later than 3:00 p.m. on Monday, July 28th (our final exam day/time).
