The task is to select one of Haydn’s many symphonies and compose a historical an

The task is to select one of Haydn’s many symphonies and compose a historical and analytical essay that guides a first-time listener through the experience. Your first step should be to select a symphony. The best way to do this is to listen to representative samples. Try one from the 40s on for size. Many of these are quite dramatic and anticipate romanticism. Or you could select an early symphony, say, the ‘Morning’ symphony. The many nicknames that are latched like mollusks to the hull of the repertoire are often misleading and, as far as I know, none originate with the composer. They can nevertheless be an excuse for a listen. Keep in mind that many of Haydn’s finest symphonies do not have nicknames. If you want a particularly rich symphony, bursting with details to mine, check out one of the so-called ‘Paris’ symphonies. If for no other reason than because you can listen to Leonard Bernstein conduct them.
Once you have a symphony you like picked out, read through the entry on Haydn on Oxford Music Online (https://www.oxfordmusiconline.com/ Links to an external site.). You have access to this through the library, and should you need help finding it, check this out: https://guides.lib.uci.edu/music. [Starting with this encyclopedia when you have a music historical question is just good musicological safety sense.] Then you might look through the entry on the symphony. You could contextualize your piece with respect to both its composer’s development and the development of the genre. Haydn plays a big role in the latter, after all. You can also look for scholarly articles on JSTOR. There are also monographs in the library devoted to these pieces. You would do well to check this out! You will want to make it to the Haydn section of the ML410s in the stacks before you complete this paper. Just seeing the secondary literature about a figure on the shelf can help orient you to how much is out there and what kind of material it encompasses.
Your next step is to take the piece apart. After this week’s listening and lectures (and from doing a bunch of listening around to choose your symphony), you should have a good idea about what is business as usual for the genre (beginning and ending on the topic, or containing a slow movement). This allows you to tell what is particular to this symphony. You have already practiced this with Symphony 45 this week. What makes this symphony stand out? How does Haydn set up expectations? Does he include an effect?
You’ll know you’re done when you feel satisfied that the reader of your paper will be well-served by your document when they step into the concert hall.
Aim for 1500 words. But don’t overestimate the importance of a word count. Your papers will be graded on their meeting the criterion just stated.

In Chapter 14, your textbook likens the early songs of troubadours and trouveres

In Chapter 14, your textbook likens the early songs of troubadours and trouveres (the earliest written record of secular music!) to modern singer-songwriters. They generated a long tradition of folk, classical and popular musical traditions, which all deal with the relationship between song text (poetry) and melody.
List an example of a song performed by a contemporary popular musical artist, in one of your favorite popular genres.
How does your example relate to the formal structures discussed in Chapters 6 & 8?
How does the vocalist change their delivery throughout the song, to include musical elements such as melody, dynamics, timbre, instrumentation, etc?
How does the delivery help to effectively set the text in each stanza, and how does it impact the overall story conveyed in the song?
Please include a general overview of the structure of the song you have selected, in addition to answering the questions above.
