The song “Caravan” by Duke Ellington performed by Ella Fitzgerald in this rendition has the lyrics written by Irving Mills. This classic song was released in 1937 but Fitzgerald didn’t complete her rendition until nearly 20 years later in 1957 accompanied by Ellington’s Orchestra in her Duke Ellington songbook album. This is a jazz piece of music with whimsical lyrics and a feeling that invokes an exotic atmosphere. On Ella’s rendition, she adds a big element of a swing sound into the piece and even though she does not need the big orchestra she still knows how to use it. Duke Ellington was born in Washington, D.C on April 29, 1899 to his two musically inclined parents.
All three Sonatas of opus 10 were dedicated to the Comtesse Anna Margarete von Braun (or "Browne") and all published in Vienna in 1798 by the firm Eder. Interestingly, the composer wrote: "in my new Sonatas [are] very short Menuets, not longer than sixteen or twenty-four bars long...".

And most importantly, an even more "organic" connection between parts and movements.

He is scared that all the memories might be too overwhelming for her. Although, the memories and the talent as a pianist she used to have, have not faded away when during the performance “her fingers worked mechanically, as though, they were recalling the piano score they had once played” ( Carter 549).

The Sonata number 11 in B-flat major is an interesting one, because it is the last "Grande Sonate" with the four movement "Grande" sonata form. It is also the culminating point with the past sonatas. This is when Beethoven will close the Sonata in four movement form. Of course there will be the Sonata "The Hunt" (op.31 N.3) which has four movements as well but this is in another context. Here I'm referring to the four movements being made of, after the first "Sonata-Allegro", a large slow movement, a Menuetto/Scherzo and a final Rondeau.

Binyi Wu Ethnomusicology 50A Discussion 1E November 23, 2015 Billy Strayhorn “The extent to which Billy Strayhorn gained recognition during his years with us was never commensurate with his contribution” said Leonard Feather, the British-born jazz musician. Indeed, though contributing enormous brilliant jazz pieces to the Swing era, Billy Strayhorn was far more unnoticed compared to his collaborator, the jazz master Duke Ellington. Instead, living most of his professional life as the protege of Duke Ellington, Strayhorn passed away in 1967 at too young an age to fully illustrate his own music to the world. However, Strayhorn’s work encountered a resurgence with the dedication of fellow musicians like Toshiko Akiyoshi and Joe Henderson
