I am writting a music criticism paper for my Music 101 college class. I have chosen this song because it was played at a symphony concert I attended. We are supposed to pick one song from that concert. My problem is that my instructor is requesting a history of the song. What are the circumstances surrounding the writting of the song. What is it about. What year was it written in. Etc. Etc. I can answer all the other questions like Type, Form, Key, etc. or What type of story or visualization does it inspire. But I can't find a thing about the back ground of this particular song. Anyone out there know where I can go to look for this information?
Thank a million, Bridget

The only thing I can think of is the Library. The librarian may be able to send you in the right direction.
Another idea is to email the Library of Performing Arts and pose your question. www.nypl.org. When the site comes up, click branch libraries, than Library for the Performing Arts and when you get to that page on the upper left-hand side of the page you will see e-mail and then take it from there. This service is available to one and all. The NYP Library for the Perfoming Arts is used by writers, performers, researchers etc..
Hope more knowledgeable members will be able to help you. Good luck and please let us know how you things work out.
