Listen to several pieces of Baroque period music and Classical period music. Then choose one piece of music from each period to compare.
• Find and listen to the Baroque period piece Pachelbel’s Canon in D major.
listen to additional Baroque music—such as Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, or Handel’s Water Music. Listen to Classical music—such as by Haydn, Mozart, or Beethoven.
Address the following aspects:
• Is there a difference in the size of the orchestra and the use of instruments?
• Comment on some of the elements of composition in each piece: sound, rhythm, melody, harmony, tonality, and texture.
• What mood does each piece suggest to you?
