The comparative essay requires students to demonstrate the depth and breadth their sense of historical perspective regarding conditions (E.g. social, cultural, technological and musical) that influenced artists and the works that they produced. In the comparative essay students should demonstrate theoretical knowledge as well as experiential analysis that stems from spending considerable time listening to and analyzing the selected works. Your experiential (listening) awareness should focus on the music’s instrumentation, form, style, and the extent of contrasts evident in dynamics and articulations of sound.
