Area of Study A: The Western Classical Tradition

(The Development of the Symphony 1750–1900)

Compulsory practice for compulsory Area of Study A! Indulge in examples from across the Classical and Romantic eras. From Schubert and Mozart to Brahms and Berlioz – students will encounter the elegant evolution of the symphony over time.

The questions are accurately exam-based reflecting real exam situation and well structured… There is a nice variety of activity types clearly mirroring Eduqas exam methodology. Very good score based questions with clarity and depth… The technical design of the resource is clearly well thought out and the author has consolidated the key elements of the symphonic music in the selected examples of wider music by delivering preparation type questions before the score analysis questions. This breaks down and categorises the learning effectively… The author clearly has great subject knowledge and flair for writing clearly and with concise detail and has created a very strong learning resource… I would most definitely use this resource in my Eduqas A level curriculum. – R Brown, Teacher & Expert Reviewer
