(musTh 212) Assignment: Bartok Syncopation

Due Monday, 2/18/12:

Indicate the perceived additive groupings in Bartok’s Mikrokosmos, #133, “Syncopation.”

On a copy of the score, write a triangle above the score for groupings of 3 eighth notes, and a square U for groupings of 2 eighth notes. If you encounter groupings of 4 eighth notes, treat it as 2 groups of 2 eighth notes.

As the piece progresses, the groupings go across bar lines. Always write what you perceive. Do not let the notated bar lines affect your grouping decisions.
