Solo Performance Project
Rhedir gan School of Music and Media
40 Credyd neu 20 Credyd ECTS
Semester 1 a 2
Trefnydd: Mr Richard Craig
- 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 work on advanced questions of repertoire, rehearsal strategies, performance practice, programme notes, and historically-informed performance. Workshops are scheduled in advance and will specialise in particular topics such as programme notes and presentation skills.
The performance displays basic musicality and technique; there is limited attention to relevant notational and stylistical demands and restricted attention to interpretive values. The text-based work displays restricted 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 should be persuasive, displaying good levels of interpretive ability, musicality and technique, together with overall attention to relevant notational and stylistical demands. The text-based work should display a sound grasp of the subject, a good level of conceptual thought, awareness of the main issues, with evidence of intellectual acumen and good expression.
The performance should be compelling and convincing, displaying exceptional levels of interpretive ability, musicality and technique, together with evidence of careful attention to relevant notational and stylistical demands. The text-based work displays a thorough grasp of the subject, with evidence of further 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 in the 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 a recital 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/or programme notes.
|Written assignment, including essay||programme note||
Requirements: 1000 words in total. While there are no maximum requirements, going beyond 2000 words is not recommended. In addition, singers are requested to submit song text translations in either Welsh or English. Please submit these documents electronically via Blackboard to enable us to forward them onto the translation services. Staff must be alerted to translation requests on the Monday of Week 9 in Semester 2. If you are unable to submit electronically, please format onto 2 pages of A4, font size 14 (these will be photocopied and reduced to fit onto 2 pages of A5).
Guidelines: Background research - use Grove Music Online as a starting point, or general history books and online resources to locate other (more detailed) reference sources. Be wary of uncritical use of Wikipedia and other websites. Always cross-check the dates and facts.
Suggested structure: while there are no definitive guidelines to follow and you are quite free in this respect, one possibility to consider is a paragraph for the composer / historical background / context (this may be redundant if the composer is very well known), and one paragraph per piece to describe its place in the composer’s output and/or general music history including influences and subsequent impact.
Participants of the module will prepare and perform a public recital of 40 minutes’ duration, featuring stylistically-diverse solo repertoire from different periods.
Oral presentation of 15 minutes in length on the repertoire chosen for the performance, normally delivered in the assessment period of Semester 1 (10%) (learning outcomes 3-5). The presentation should encompass both musicological criteria and reflect upon performance practice that pertains to the recital repertoire
|ARDDANGOSIAD/YMARFER||Participation Semester 2||
Performances and participation in workshops (10%). This will be in the form of a presentation of a work in a performance workshop, which will be assessed as per the Performance Criteria. This will take place in Semester 2, and a schedule will be available on BlackBoard
