Explore heading as the basis of your response:
Listen to one (1) composition (for a symphony) by
Haydn or Mozart, either at the Websites below or in this week’s Music
Folder. Identify the work that you have chosen, and describe the way in
which the composition expresses the specific qualities of the Classical
music style. Use the key terms from the textbook that are related to that
particular music style, and explain what you like or admire about the
work. Compare it to a specific modern musical work for which you might use
the term “classic” or “classical”.Explain whether you think an autobiographical or
fictional account by a slave (such as Phillis Wheatley and Olaudah
Equiano) is more persuasive than a biographical or fictional account by a
white author (such as John Gabriel Stedman or Aphra Behn). Explain whether
you believe the representations of slavery in the visual arts (such as
William Blake’s illustrations, William Hackwood’s cameo, or John Singleton
Copley’s painting) were more compelling and convincing of the injustices
of slavery than the literary representations already mentioned. In your
explanations, use specific examples and consider both audience and the
content and nature of the work. Identify the literary or art form in
modern times that you think is most effective at depicting injustice.
