“If music be the food of love…”

With Valentine’s Day coming up, what better time for the English and Music departments to provide some cross-curricular learning for Year 8 on the theme of love (and, less aptly, hate)? Year 8 have been studying Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet this term and will be writing comparison essays on Baz Luhrman and Franco Zefirelli’s film representations of Act 3 Scene 1 of the play in which there is a dramatic fight between the Montagues and Capulets. One of the key elements in film is the emotive use of music to influence an audience’s reaction to a scene; we wanted Year 8 to have the opportunity to experience this first hand. On Wednesday, one of our gifted student musicians, Jakub Priban in Year 12, played a live version of Prokofiev’s ‘Montagues and Capulets’ and the students thought about how the composer had represented the scene. On Thursday, Mrs Donaldson then followed this up with work on Tchaikovsky’s ‘Romeo and Juliet Overture’ and select pieces from West Side Story.  The students really enjoyed hearing the music and thinking about how musical and dramatic performance are connected.
