Well this week is designed to help any student who is looking at a score for the first time and isn’t really sure how to analyse it. I always start with the Core Material. Identifying the core material will help you to see what the initial ideas are and how they are developed or manipulated. This week, I use “Confutatis” from Mozart’s Requiem as a sample. I would like to thank Geru’s Music Library for taking the time to create the scrolling score with the excerpts from the film “Amadeus”. It is so good for the kids to be able to focus on this particular sequence. It is such a good analytical sequence.
