AQA AS Music Unit 2 Brief A Question 2

Discussion in 'Music' started by ZappaMusic, Apr 4, 2011.

  1. Hi there
    My Year 12's started their 20 hour controlled composition examination today.
    Unit 2 Brief A Mus2A
    - Q1. Harmonisation of a 16 bar diatonic melody
    - Q2. Controlling Texture
    Has anyone else started this? Does question 2 seem far more difficult than the past/specimen papers? I've got to admit I felt for them today when I saw it. The chords, passing notes & general harmonisation seem very difficult or more difficult than what I was expecting!

    Thoughts?
     
  2. Agreed. the two-part is much harder than last year's. But, I thought the 4-part was much easier this year, so I guess it balances out.



    The two-part contains suspensions, chromatic auxiliaries and a large amount of unrelated key changes that technically aren't required (according to the spec) until at least A2.
