Hello Class:

Sorry, I changed the Due Date for Part ONE / The excursion to NY Phil is next week..so this must be completed THIS WEEK
PART 2 -ABOUT EAST WEST ORCHESTRA IS FOR 1/16


IF YOU HAVE NOT PRINTED OUT THE PREVIOUSLY POSTED HOME WORK, PLEASE DO SO !!!


Here is the Listening Link for Ravel's Bolero featuring the East-West Divan Orchestra

Follow these steps previously posted/ You may hand write PART 1 assignment -

• Step1) Listen and observe The West–Eastern Divan Orchestra conducted by the world famous conductor Daniel Barenboim -for the entire piece
• Step 2) While you are listening, observe how the camera person is focusing in on each soloist and follow his/or her playing expressions – be sure to try and identify the instruments to see
• Step 3) Make a list of all the Woodwind and Stringed solo instruments as they enter from the beginning( 0:01) to (6:25) – you may also list brass instruments if you are sure of their name!!
**Remember that all the different instruments are all playing OVER the snare drum that remains constant throughout the piece (which is a member of the percussion family – so you do not need to include the drum)
