Question Description

Instructions

1. Read A Critical Focus: Exploring Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune" at the end of Chapter 6.

2. Carefully listen to the song "Clair de Lune" and critically examine its components, style, context, and influence. Listen for and try identifying at least TWO basic elements of music described in Chapter 6.

3. Read the essay "Musical Impressionism: The Early History of the Term" by Ronald L. Byrnside from The Musical Quarterly, Vol. 66, No. 4 (October, 1980), pp. 522-537, published by Oxford University Press.

4. Now that you've carefully examined and researched the work of music, write a new thread of at least 200 words, in which you:

  • Describe Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune" analytically. In doing this, identify at least TWO basic elements of music described in Chapter 6 (section 6.1) "The Basic Elements of Music".
  • Explain whether "Clair de Lune" is Apollonian or Dionysian, and provide evidence supporting your argument.
  • Knowing that "Clair de Lune" belongs to a musical school known as Impressionism (based on your research) describe the similarities and differences between Impressionism as an artistic movement (as we learned about in Module 5) and as a movement in music. Use evidence from "Clair de Lune" and your exploration of Impressionism to support your arguments.
  • Be sure to use and cite "Musical Impressionism: The Early History of the Term" by Ronald L. Byrnside and/or another essay you have already found and read as a research source article concerning the musical school and movement known as Impressionism.
