Audio rehearsal tracks for Requiem
for the Victims of Chornobyl:
A commercially-made recording of this
same section of the Requiem is here.
An audio CD for your section and a list of the tracks thereon will be
given out in class.
Rehearsing At Home with Your Audio
Your audio CD contains two kinds of sound files: rehearsal tracks as
well as completed recordings of those songs for which we have recordings.
The South African songs have vocally recorded
rehearsal tracks; all other rehearsal tracks are electronically generated.
On those MIDI tracks, you will hear your part as a synthesized oboe
and louder than the others. These rehearsal tracks also include a metronome
beat. Warning: MIDI tracks may contain some minor errors! Be alert:
compare them to your score and what you hear in class.
Though it can be useful just to listen,
study your audio CD with the printed music to learn your part. You will
find that your "just listening" sessions are more helpful
when you've also studied the printed score, and the audio recording
will help you read the printed music more accurately. The more complete
recordings are included to give you a sense of the tempo, style, emotional
content, and overall feeling of the music.
