Course aim:
To explore music due to be performed at the Royal Concert Hall, and elsewhere in Nottingham, with a view to enhancing enjoyment and understanding of the live performance.
Course description:
Whether you’re a seasoned concert-goer or first-timer, this course is for you. Each week we will take a lively, user-friendly look at, usually, one major work due to be performed in Nottingham, usually from the season at the Royal Concert Hall, occasionally also other venues. We will study it in some detail, listening to and discussing recorded extracts (in most cases there will be time to explore the entire work in this way). We will also consider it in a wider context including, where relevant, composer’s life and career, relevant works by the same or different composers, and more general cultural issues. The music to be studied includes works by Berlioz, Schumann, Stravinsky, Elgar and Sibelius.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. relate the works studied to other examples of the composers’ outputs, other works in a similar field, or to a wider cultural context.
2. recognise some of the characteristics of each composer’s style.
3. identify some of the main themes and structural features of each work.
4. identify and discuss aspects of the concert or other performances of the works concerned.
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.

WEA Canvas online learning area
