MOOOC Term 1, LESSON 7 • CURRICULUM & ASSIGNMENTS
Hi everyone, I hope you enjoy this lesson!


It’s our longest MOOOC lesson so far, with a huge amount of detail and lots of guided score-reading. I am going to keep the instructions very simple and straightforward here. There are no resources to study this lesson, just score-reading and scoring.


SCORE STUDY


Mozart Piano Quartet no. 1 in G minor, K. 478

http://imslp.org/wiki/Piano_Quartet_in_G_minor,_K.478_(Mozart,_Wolfgang_Amadeus)

The Breitkopf edition is fine.

The Nash Ensemble recording on the IMSLP page is serviceable.

Mendelssohn Piano Quartet no. 3 in B minor, op. 3

http://imslp.org/wiki/Piano_Quartet_No.3,_Op.3_(Mendelssohn,_Felix)

Only one full score, the Rietz, not bad at all.

Schumann Piano Quartet in E-flat, op. 47

http://imslp.org/wiki/Piano_Quartet,_Op.47_(Schumann,_Robert)

Clara Schumann’s edition is the best, or the Niemann. The recording is okay.

Brahms Piano Quartet no. 3 in C minor, op. 60

http://imslp.org/wiki/Piano_Quartet_No.3,_Op.60_(Brahms,_Johannes)

More recent editions are fine, the IMSLP recording works, but the YouTube clip below is better.

SCORING ASSIGNMENT


Score 2-3 minute work for piano quartet that represents your own style as guided by the craft we’ve studied up to this point. Let your ideas come naturally out of the scoring possibilities as stated at the end of the video, and as listed in Lessons 1-6. Do what you can with this, because our last lesson’s assignment is going to be very structured.
