Here is my piece for the theory course 302a Bartók. The inspiration for this piece is, of course, Bartók's Mikrokosmos, but I was also inspired by Friedrich's Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer, which is shown below:
Hello everybody, Maybe this will just be my outlet topic for this horrible assignment for school, but perhaps this topic can turn into an interesting discussion. Since I have my final exams this year, I have to do a school research project, like all other pre-university students in Holland. Obviously, I chose the subject Music, because the assignment is then to compose a composition for a professional ensemble. It sounded like a lot of fun, but now the problems have begun... The assignment for Music is to write a plan, in which you describe what you want to do with the music, before composing a single note. The teacher asks for which tonalities, which orchestrations, which themes, which time signatures, which tempo etc. What do you think about that? I always compose, while composing, because that is my way of composing. How can teachers expect from students to write a document containing 10.000 words about the music (in one week), before composing a single note? Greetings from a desparate composer
