Type(s) of music:

Which type

s/genres of music were performed (symphony, opera, concerto,

needed to perform the works? Were concert programs wi

th notes provided? Did you read or

research

about

the works before or after the performance? If so, in which source(s)?

3.

Choose two movements

or short pieces

from the program and

highlight what really “stuck out” to you about the music in this section.
