Music DQ

1. It is 1924 in Paris, and you have somehow been able to invite the fifty-year-old Schoenberg, the nearing-fifty Maurice Ravel, the forty-something Stravinsky—no, he’s not about to die!—and the forty-something Darius Milhaud, to dinner. In at least 150 words (more is better, if it is substantive), describe the evening. Your description should demonstrate what you have learned, from the textbook and other sources, about the personalities of the composers, about the type of music they most often wrote, and musical issues they might agree or disagree about.

2) You are assigned one of the movie score composers below. Discuss the life of the assigned composer, and at least one audio link to something he wrote, discussing the piece in terms of the musical elements.
