- Build on and enhance the skills acquired in Year 2 Solo Performance module
- Advance and refine the student's instrumental or vocal technique
- Enable the student to engage with issues of historical style, context and historically informed performance relating to his/her instrument or voice
Participants of the module will prepare and perform a public recital of 40 minutes’ duration, featuring stylistically-diverse solo repertoire from different periods. Individual instrumental or vocal tuition will be accompanied by workshops in which the students will address and discuss advanced questions relating to repertoire choices, rehearsal strategies, performance practices (including historically-informed performance), presentation skills and the preparation of programme notes.
The performance displays basic musicality and technique; there is limited attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands and restricted attention to interpretive values. The text-based work displays scant knowledge of the subject, with simple ability at conceptual thought, and a limited awareness of issues, but has some evidence of a generally intellectual approach, with fair expression.
The performance is persuasive, displaying good levels of interpretive ability, musicality and technique, together with overall attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands. The text-based work displays a sound grasp of the subject, a satisfactory level of conceptual thought, awareness of the main issues, with evidence of intellectual acumen and good expression.
The performance is compelling and convincing, displaying advanced levels of interpretive ability, musicality and technique, together with evidence of careful attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands. The text-based work displays a thorough grasp of the subject, with evidence of broader contextual study, deeper thought, originality of approach and excellent written skills.
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to engage with performance practices pertinent to their chosen repertoire: consistent attention to articulation, dynamic range and expressive markings.
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to conceive and deliver a balanced recital programme that illustrates a concept or musicological theme in a consistent way.
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to justify musical choices of repertoire, performance practice and problem solving via presentation and programme notes.
