    I did Bernstein and Schoenberg too and then the one about melody and rhythm...I thought the essay section was pretty nice but the listening section was horrible!

    Question 2 in section A was really hard...what did everyone put for composer/date?

    For the Cadence, I put Perfect in A major, then for the next key I put F#m and then E major. For the chord I put Augmented 6th but it is probably wrong, my friend put dim 7th, but tbh, it's only one mark.

    Was it definitely Mozart? I put him but wasn't sure!
    Yes it definitely was! I just Googled Mozart string quartet 1789 and found his 21st string quartet, which was the one used for our exam.

    What did people get as answers for the comparison?
    The accompanying instrument
    Forces/texture
    Differing features of rhythm and metre?

    Accompanying instrument I think accordion

    Forces texture, monophonic at start,melody dominating homophony, pedal note can't remember what instruments

    I thought it was a really hard part of the excerpt to give actually because there were a lot of parts playing at once...think I might have got the rhythm but messed up on a lot of the pitches. Needed it a couple more times! What about you?

    Think I did the same for the keys and cadence (note sure) for the chord I put neopolitan 6th but it was a complete guess!!

    Yeah I got accordion as well, monophonic at beginning, then homophonic and also that there was a counter melody (but not sure if it's right) then forces I got bagpipes, flute and then drum but didn't know what type.
    I had no idea what to write for the rhythm and metre question, think I just put a was duple, b was triple b was more sustained and a had cross rhythms but I was guessing tbh

    I think I put one had a varying time signature? But yeah I put one was in compound and the other simple time.. But I can't remember which way round they were! Oh I also said one had a faster tempo, but literally just made stuff up haha!
