Music Appreciation Comparative Essay
For this assignment, we will compare two pieces that belong to the same genre. In this case we will compare two piano concertos of the classical time period. The paper should be two to three pages double spaced in Times New Roman font. Your first criteria for this paper should include your analysis, interpretation, and critique, and second criteria should include reflection of your experience listening to these different works of art and artistic performances.
The first part of the paper should focus on the historical context, the other should focus on music analysis. Please compare the first movement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sonata No. 16 for Piano in C Major, K545 (1788) and the first movement Ludwig van Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata (1801) No. 14 in C-sharp minor, Op. 27, No 2. I have provided links, however if you have this music available to you, you are welcome to use that.
Consider when each composer lived during the same time period; Mozart in the early part of the Classical time period and Beethoven in the later part of the same time period. How did the music evolve and change, if at all?
Mozart
Lang Lang— Mozart: Sonata in C, K. 545, Allegro

Beethoven
Beethoven : Sonata No.14 Op.27 No.2 (“Moonlight”) / Valentina Lisitsa

After critically listening to the first movements of the two piano sonatas, please write an essay that answers or addresses the following two questions:
What differences are noticeable in the musical elements of tempo, duration, dynamics, harmony, mood and musical expression in the first movements of these two musical works?
How do these works, by Mozart in the Classical Period and Beethoven in the Romantic Period, reflect some of the musical and artistic characteristics of their respective periods of musical history?
This is for a music appreciation course which is a general level course and thus the terminology used should be on that level
