At first I assumed it was not the correct choice for me, but then I got a feel for it and realized how inspiring and life eventful it is. I chose orchestra as my educational activity because it gives you the ability to show off and gain important skills, benefits your body, and teaches you valuable lessons about teamwork. One reason I chose to join orchestra because, it teaches you useful skills,and every so often, tests you on those skills, which can help you in the long run. For example, in an orchestra learn to do things many people can’t. You learn all different types of important skills like how to read sheet music, how to multitask, gain impressive hand-eye coordination, and how to cooperate with people.
9 in D minor opus 125, represents the height of Beethoven’s creativity and intelligence and in a sense can be regarded as a culmination of the trauma he endured because of his loss of hearing. Furthermore, the work is a very powerful force and especially if it is experienced live. One understands and appreciates the sheer genius that was Ludwig van Beethoven and this work, even though it is over 190 years old, is still able to resonate with audiences all over the world. The last movement is one of my favourite pieces of music to listen to and analyse because of the emotional, creative and intellectual thinking it entails. The recording I listened to was the Folsom Symphony and Sacramento Master Singers "Glorious Beethoven" March 25, 2012.
Combined with the quality, pitch, duration, and melody of the scores I came to have a new perspective in how these elements display what the true form of music is. Notably, music is a way to express emotions, create originality, and a platform to share experiences. In conclusion, the concert was a success in how the musicians were able to grab a hold of the crowd's attention and impact their lives with a new meaning of the contribution music has on
In conclusion, I have learned a lot about Mozart. I hope that people of this generation will continue to listen to his music. He was one of the greatest composers. His legacy still has a big effect on our modern lives, his music flows through our everyday lives through mediums like commercials, nursery rhymes and movies. I will continue to learn more about him and listen to his music and experience
Critical Comments-what did you hear and why or why not did you enjoy it, instruments, tempo, style, expression, time period, etc. There is so much variation in this piece. The dynamics of the sudden crescendos and decrescendos. The pieces gives me sense of dramatic story telling. I like the call and response that is played in the section of the music.
This was to attract the audience into his message and it made them deeply experience the emotions that exist within the classical music. Zander, a great presenter, was very energetic on the stage that retained the audience’s attention. In his presentation, he usually includes body gestures such as hand gestures and nodding head, etc. several times, Zander walked into the audience and engaged with them. He also mentioned that only 3 percent of the population are classical music lover’s.
He raises the image to the mystery category making the audience create the picture of the past, present, and future. Granado’s music assists in creating an intimate linkage between the classic melody and the spirit of the local lands. Overall, the talent of the both masters is compared and considered irresistible as if they created the same work only in the different realm of art. Furthermore, Granado’s Goyescas was inspired by Albeniz’s motives, as well. The musician was thoroughly familiar with his style and used the same approaches to the
The dialogue and lyrics are straightforward and full of ironic elements, which bring a lot of fun to enjoy. The transition from lines into a song is pretty smooth. For example, when Shrek is “hurt” by what Fiona says and his anger reaches a climax, he naturally starts to sing to express his emotion. In addition, the music, which embraces several styles such as pop, rock and jazz, also add dynamics into the show. So in sum, the writing of the show is appealing.
The length of this movement itself (691 measures) is as long as a whole symphony in the previous generation and it is what made this movement ‘heroic’. Beethoven treated the main melody in this movement like a character in a drama. Beethoven started an unusual trend in the exposition by letting the cello play the pastoral theme which outlines an E-flat major triad. The triple meter is another bizarre trait, yet when it’s combined with the tempo of this movement; it reminds the listener of Deutsche peasant dance. The primary theme (see fig.
Music has been the lifeblood for many people across centuries with all its kinds and various instruments, the power of music has been evolving ever since the first instrument was invented. Many Musicians have perfected the art of music, an art so powerful it could change the very foundations of each and every human being, just as the great musician and composer Ludwing Van Beethoven said "Music can change the world", In order for the public to really understand Music and to get the full dose of this magnificent art, We need to understand its language and how to get it fully, but music isn’t another language to learn, it needs to be heard and be felt within the soul and heart, no matter what country we originate from, or what culture we were
