Edexcel A2 Applied Music Set Works 2013
The five Applied Music set works for the A2 Unit 6 (6Mu06) examination in June 2013 include music covering a period of over four hundred years. The first two, by Gabrieli and Bach, were covered in Part One of this article. For the next two works, we enter the world of twentieth century film music, with Bernstein’s Symphonic Suite: On the Waterfront from 1955, and Goldsmith’s The Hunt (opening) from his score for the 1968 film Planet of the Apes. The final work is an extract from the traditional Balinese Baris Melampahan, a very ancient dance recorded here by the modern Gong Kebyar ensemble from Sebatu in Bali, Indonesia.
