"Classical Music; Early Abolitionist Art and Literature" Please respond to one (1) of the following, using sources under the Explore heading as the basis of your response:

  •  Listen  to one (1) composition (for a symphony) by Haydn or Mozart, either at  the Websites below or in this week's Music Folder. Identify the work  that you have chosen, and describe the way in which the composition  expresses the specific qualities of the Classical music style. Use the  key terms from the textbook that are related to that particular music  style, and explain what you like or admire about the work. Compare it to  a specific modern musical work for which you might use the term  "classic" or "classical".
  • Explain whether you think an  autobiographical or fictional account by a slave (such as Phillis  Wheatley and Olaudah Equiano) is more persuasive than a biographical or  fictional account by a white author (such as John Gabriel Stedman or  Aphra Behn). Explain whether you believe the representations of slavery  in the visual arts (such as William Blake’s illustrations, William  Hackwood’s cameo, or John Singleton Copley’s painting) were more  compelling and convincing of the injustices of slavery than the literary  representations already mentioned. In your explanations, use specific  examples and consider both audience and the content and nature of the  work. Identify the literary or art form in modern times that you think  is most effective at depicting injustice.
