Continuing our program music idea, I thought this week you would like to watch a clip of another type of bird from Saint Saens’s composition called Carnival of the Animals. Remember what the Flamingo clip was like? Really fast and fun! Well this one is about the beautiful and elegant swan. This bird is different so the music will be different too. Watch out for the graceful ballerina – she is trying to be the swan and move like the swan does.
After watching, sketch a swan in your workbook and describe how the music represented the character. Think about:
pitch (high and low sounds)
tempo (fast or slow)
dynamics (loud or quiet)
How could you describe each of these?
Your work last week on the flamingos was amazing so I am really looking forward to seeing this week’s work!
If you want to email me your work, I will pass on your pictures to Mrs Jones.
