It uses musical ideas to represent concepts without having to use sung words. Prominent examples of a programmatic works include Richard Strauss’s Alpine Symphony - where it is a musical description of ascending and descending a mountain, Modest Mussorgky’s Pictures at an Exhibition – inspired by the paintings and watercolours of artist, Hartmann who was a close friend of Mussorgsky. The piece in focus would be Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. We will be focusing on his artistic influences from literature that influenced the story of his Symphonie Fantastique. When Hector Berlioz wrote his Symphonie Fantastique, or Fantasy Symphony, in 1830, he was greatly inspired by Shakespeare 's work, Hamlet but more specifically, he was swept away by the likes of Irish Actress, Harriet Smithson.
However, eventually it became known as his ninth symphony, and his last completed one. The piece is comprised of four different movements, including Adagio, Largo, Scherzo, and Allegro con fuoco. The first and last movements keep a steady pace and provide many impacting themes, while the second movement is much slower by
There they began to dance a more traditional ballet combination full of arabesques and gleesides. Their arms were still very proper, stretching out and up, moving from first to third, but more elegant and graceful than their previous joyful hops. From here the music changed again, this time to a more ominous tone as the dancers moved to the upstage right corner and clumped together. Their movements were slow but deliberate as they folded on top of each other, wrapping their arms around the other performers. As they slowly rolled up their arms moved in bizarre ways, bending and twisting in motions very different to the previous classical ballet inspired portion of the piece.
Artwork could be defined as a universal language that can carry ideas and emotions of an artist toward audiences via a particular narrative. Presently, there are many memorable art pieces from various artists. Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso as well have become prominent from their unique styles of artwork, which conveys a profound feeling through basic elements of art, such as use of color and a narrative.

The first difference between Monet’s garden and Picasso’s garden is artist’s background information.
This symphony did a great job of being quiet if their part wasn’t the melody or harmony. For example, in the first piece by Tchaikovsky the low brass had the baseline and the woodwinds had the melody, so the low brass played at a piano level, while the woodwinds played at a mezzoforte level. Throughout the first song, the orchestra did a nice job of going from forte to piano in an instant. Also, when they gradually grew or dropped down their dynamics, they were in unison. Towards the middle of the piece, there was a round starting with the brass.
The first part is written in the form of a sonata allegro. Her pace is Allegro con brio, that is, quickly, with fire. The main party represents the development of the initial motive of the symphony. It is distinguished by a great rhythmic clarity, a determined aspiration forward. At the same time, this topic is full of anxiety and anxiety.
Musical theatre is a versatile conglomeration which combines many different aspects of theatrical performance. Aspects such as songs, dance, spoken dialogue, and acting combine together within the performances of The Phantom of the Opera and Cats both composed by Andrew Lloyd Weber. The opulent gothic context, the external realistic style, and the ability to explore musical theatre with a higher soprano singing from The Phantom of the Opera contrast with the bleak modernistic context, internal realistic style, and the ability to explore musical theatre with an alto pitched singing from Cats. In the context of The Phantom of the Opera musical the inspiration was sourced from the French novel Le Fantóme de L’Opéra written by Gaston Le Roux. The
Mozart had the intention to stray away from the usual structural blocks of tuttis and solos in the first movement. “He sometimes had symphonic development in mind as he constructs the opening tutti, so that new musical situations do not develop by perceptible stages but each proceeds smoothly out of the one before; and in addition he gets to work on the ‘punctuation’ of the solo exposition.”(Küster) This new style also included having stronger relative remote keys used as a modulation than the previous piano concertos, in which the main functions completely dominated the musical course of
The roots of the word dystopia—dys- and -topia—are from the Ancient Greek for “bad” and “place,” and so this term is used to describe a negative society. In a dystopian story, society is typically the antagonist; it is society that is actively working against the protagonist’s goals and desires. This is the reason why the protagonist is constantly trying to reunite the people in society. By reuniting society, the protagonist manages to take down those whom are trying to destroy it. Many people are starting to enjoy the 21st century dystopian due to its rotten world, which is a problem faced by all the people, mainly because of the division into separate groups.
One of the favorite students of Beethoven, the pianist and composer Ferdinand Ries recalled: "This symphony was conceived in connection with Bonaparte when he was First Consul. Beethoven appreciated his exceptionally high and compared with the greatest Roman consuls. As I, and others of his coming friends often saw this symphony written in the score he had on the table top on the cover sheet stood the word "Bonaparte" and the bottom "Luigi van Beethoven," and say no more ...
