Slide 14

Listening Activity for Texture Have understudies listen to the Dance of the Young Maidens from Rite of Spring. Ask them what they envisioned the music to be about and think of a few thoughts on a board. Recount to them the story behind the music and have them listen to the music once more. Ask understudies whether their thoughts were near the scene\'s depiction. Why or why not? Would understudies depict this music as thick or slender? Basic or occupied? Have understudies talk about why the " thickness" of the music sets the scene for the expressive dance. Disclose to understudies this is called surface in music and it is critical to pass on the possibility of the music to the audience. For differentiation, play Debussy\'s Nuages , or Prelude to an Afternoon of a Faun. How does the surface of these pieces contrast? How does the author perform that?

Slide 15

Performance Activity Pass out different percussion instruments to your class, breaking them into gatherings of 3 or 4 understudies. All understudies ought to have cadence sticks alongside another sort of instrument. Give the understudies a cadence to all play together in the meantime with the beat sticks. Portray this as MONOPHONY. At that point, separate the class into two gatherings, as yet playing the sticks. Have one play an ostinato mood, while the other gathering plays the first beat. This is HOMOPHONY . Next, gap understudies into their gatherings of 3 or 4 and request that one gathering continue playing the sticks, while the others utilize their different instruments. Give the first musicality, the ostinato, and also the same number of different rhythms that you may require. This is POLYPHONY. At long last, solicit every one of them to play one from the rhythms together as a gathering, utilizing the diverse instruments. This is HETEROPHONY.

Slide 16

Probing Questions Have understudies portray why they think music has and on the off chance that it needs all these textural perspectives. Why do a few arrangers fuse a considerable measure of surface into their music and others don\'t? Will the understudies discover case of various sorts of surface in music that they appreciate listening to? Welcome them to get it and offer it with the class.

Slide 19


Slide 20

Telling the story The youthful sovereign Ivan ends up in the loathsome kingdom of the beast, Kaschei. Experiences an excellent Firebird while meandering in Kashchei\'s charmed garden and takes a plume from it. Experiences 13 ladies, one of whom he falls energetically infatuated with. In the morning, when these detained ladies are constrained by Kashchei\'s enchantment spell to come back to his manor, Ivan is constrained to tail them.

Slide 21

Captured by Kashchei\'s immense hirelings. Firebird informs him regarding the monstrosity\'s mystery of eternality: that his spirit, as an egg in a box, must stay unbroken. Ivan tears open the casket and crushes the egg forthwith, whereupon the creature passes on and the shrewd spell which has been thrown over his kingdom breaks up and all hostages are without set. Obviously, the sovereign\'s fire, Tsarevna, and he are hitched.

Slide 22

Katscheï tries to transform the Prince into stone, however the saint delivers the Firebird\'s enchantment quill. The Firebird shows up and compels Katscheï and his supporters into an excited move.

Slide 23

The Conclusion FINALE Katscheï and his entourage are obliterated. The majority of the detainees are without set, including the Thirteenth Princess, whom the Prince marries. Over string tremolos, a performance horn plays a variety of the topic that was initially displayed by the flutes in the Princesses\' Round. Different individuals from the symphony consolidate the tune, as the Finale works to a bombastic peak.

Slide 24

King Katschei Activity Have understudies listen to the "Diabolical Dance" giving careful consideration to surface. Listen once more, recounting the story.

Slide 25

King Katschei Texture Groups For more established understudies: Discuss the 4 principle sorts of musical surface. Partition understudies into gatherings speaking to the 4.
