Week Four Discussion Beethoven: Art and Protest in the 1800s
Please respond to each of the following questions, using on line sources and the textbook for your response:
- Cite several lines from a Romantic poet/poem in our text and then find a landscape painting by Constable or Turner from this time period you think might illustrate those lines. Consider poems from Keats, Shelley, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Bryon, or William Blake.
- Listen to one (1) composition (i.e., for a symphony) by Beethoven. How would this music fit into one of your favorite computer games? Give us some details about the game and why you like to play it. Here is a link that describes 15 great video game music scores (is your game on this list?) http://www.classicfm.com/discover-music/periods-genres/video-game/video-game-music-15-great-computer-game-scores/halo/
