Symphonic Music from Literary Sources: A Selected Bibliography and Critical Analysis of Musical Works Derived from Legends, Myths, Fairy Tales, Literary Classics, Other Stories, and Poems, and Their Appropriateness and Utility with Elementary School Children.
Bailey, Evelyn Hope
This study relates 43 selected symphonic works to the composers' literary sources, on the assumption that familiarity with the sources will improve a student's ability to listen intelligently and will increase the permanent benefits to be derived from both literature and music. The goals of the study were (1) to cite resources and provide information on source material for elementary school teachers and librarians, (2) to suggest ways to utilize this material within the elementary school curriculum, (3) to set forth goals to be attained through such utilization, and (4) to furnish indexes to the assembled data. The inclusion of a particular musical work in the study was determined by suitability for elementary school children, a literary source, availability as a recording, and analysis of the music. The musical selections were organized according to types of literary sources, and three types of symphonic music were analyzed within these divisions. (Annotated bibliographies of recommended books, disc recordings, sound films, sound filmstrips, and tape recordings are provided as well as author, composer, and subject indexes.)
