The form of the song is AABA 32-bar and has variety moods throughout the melody, for instance, the beginning starts off with a nice and easy tone as Sinatra sings while there are a few sudden pauses for some of the instruments playing. After the first verse, the melody of the song becomes vigorous and bouncy which keeps a positive sounding pitch. Towards the end of the song all the instruments end the tune all together right after Sinatra sings the last verse. I think “Luck Be a Lady” is a good song, moreover the lyrics are interesting in how luck is being referred to as a
The raises in her voice on words like fear and year at the end are what make this song so excellent. Finally, in the last verse the accompaniment drops out and you are left with only her voice improvising the notes and adding beautiful little runs. All of this together made a beautiful sound and altogether a wonderful
However, the differences are not to noticeable, but pretty significant once analyzed thoroughly. For example, the theme for Haydn’s the “Surprise” Symphony are played shortly and the total of four variations, make up the rest of symphony. Whereas in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, the symphony begins and ends with the same theme, and the variations (also a total of four) are just there to fill in the gap.
The next year Benny added Lionel Hampton to create the Benny Goodman Quartet. Benny’s huge success during the Swing Era is what led Time magazine in 1937 to name him the “King of Swing”. The next year, during the peak of the Swing Era, Benny Goodman’s band, with musicians from Count Basie and Duke Ellington’s bands, reached a big milestone to be the first ever jazz band to play at the esteemed Carnegie Hall in New York. After the concert, the Benny Goodman Band went through a few changes in cast. The swing era came to a close as World War II raged on, and that aided a change in styles.
I love this piece because it ends the first act on such a high positive note and is a great precursor to the title song. Another song I enjoyed was “Hello Dolly”. “Hello Dolly” is the big show stopping number. It is Dolly’s triumphant return to where she belonged. I love Dolly’s soft vocal line in the beginning of the song but as soon as the waiters come in they make her feel at home, she becomes more at ease and joins the waiters in this big bold brassy sound.
Before the first rehearsal I had to prepare and make sure my part was solid. About a week before we first rehearsed, I printed out my part, looked at the score, and just listened to a few recordings. This was to get a sense of how my part fit into whole piece, but also to find any trouble spots, such as places with tricky tuning or technically weird passages. Then it was just about practicing the parts and writing in notes for the needed adjustments. Overall, my part was not difficult to play, except for a small section (about two measures in length) in the Beethoven and Bruch that I could have had cleaner articulation in.
Theme B (section B); 4.16 modulacije This second section is known as Breast Milky (2:55-5:26). The theme is a complete contrast to the section A because while the melody in section A is loud and playful the melody in theme B is calm and peaceful. The section B is shaped in a form called sonata. The section starts with cellos’ solo accompanied by the hammond organ. The music has again a romantic “allurg”, which is the characteristic of progressive rock music of XXth century.
The beginning of the piece sounds really sad and slow as well as a little dark. The French horn starts the piece off, which is followed behind by the singers. The tempo is slow and the pitch range is narrow with a homophonic texture. This piece had very few dynamic changes and there were no tempo changes, yet there were some mood changes. I enjoyed the emotions behind the piece and how it changed from sadness to something heavenly like.
The true New York was perhaps just like a Jazz, indulging in its own success. In the November 13, I went to a Jazz concert that held in Carnegie Hall. It was my first Jazz concert ever. The concert was epic. As soon as the concert started I was utterly ravished by the opening number.
I had been in band from fifth grade through high school so even just hearing an ensemble sound again was amazing as I miss band very much. I also really enjoyed The Swan Lake Suite as it has been one of my favorite pieces since I was little, so it was also really nice to hear something that I already knew a little of how it would go. The orchestra sounded amazing and I am also good friends with one of the bassoon players so it was neat that one of our concerts to choose from had someone I knew in it. It was so interesting to hear all of the elements we have been discussing in class, actually in person and it was helpful that I was in band throughout school so it was easier to pick out certain aspects like melody, tempo, and dynamics for example. Overall, this concert was very enjoyable and performed
Candlelight Organists The Burton Parish Church located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia hosted a Candlelight Concert held every Saturday all year long and every Tuesday and Thursday’s only in the month of March. When entering Burton Parish Church there staff handed out programs that had information about the concert and about the church. In the program it stated incredible facts about Burton Parish Church. Like it is one of the oldest churches in America, founded in 1674. Also this church enhanced the pursuit for independence by the founding fathers.
I wanted to do band, as they were for the first time, letting third graders in the band, so I asked her, “What instrument should I play, Lucy?” She answered, “Well, we have some flute, clarinet, and trumpet spaces left, which one of those do you want to play?” I thought about it, and finally decided I wanted to play the flute. So I told her and she thought it was a good choice, so we set up an audition. It was on a Wednesday after school. We met up with the
Assignment #3 Zixin Zhang Music Concert Paper On Saturday, December 5, 2015, I went to the Palo Alto philharmonic orchestra concert II, which is called “Viola Night”. The concert was directed by Thomas Shoebotham, who has a highly varied musical career that includes opera and orchestral conducting, cello and piano performance. As the concert was designed as “Viola Night”, it was mainly leading by two outstanding viola soloists, Geri Actor and Mimi Dye. Attending the concert gave me a chance to know these outstanding viola soloists. By reading the guide book, I knew that Actor usually performances with ensembles on viola, piano and percussion, and she also consults in business occasionally.
Ken Schaphorst, a composer, trumpeter, and educator with more than a decade of experience leading big bands, counts on a great lineup of musicians and friends, including a few former students from the New England Conservatory in Boston. Schaphorst’s modern big bands are typically packed with trendy and inventive jazz instrumentalists, and for this new album, entitled How To Say Goodbye, he maintains this feature. Donny McCaslin, Ralph Alessi, Chris Cheek, Uri Caine, Jay Anderson, and Matt Wilson are incredible performers that don’t need any introduction. Shifty and animated, the title track immediately lets us know about the leader’s art of orchestration. The tune was written for the trumpeter John Carlson who envinces absolute confidence and takes the lead through thoughtful moves.
The first was “How far is it to Bethlehem?” The second was “Carol of the Bells.” The third and final one was “Joy to the World.” The first musical piece that I really liked was called “How far is it to Bethlehem?” This certain number stood out because, I liked the calm, gentle texture of the song. This number starts out with one woman singing. The song had a soft tune, but was also happy. A flute, and string instruments were
