Lopez also included more use of the percussion and brass instruments such as the tuba, trombone, trumpet and horn making the suspense grow. The upper stringed instruments complimented the flute very nicely since they both have that soothing sound. This piece consisted of two different movements. The second part of it was a lot more allegro, upbeat, and energized. It symbolized the eternal love that no one, not even a powerful king, could take away.
His Ninth Symphony is often called the mightiest of his symphonies because his late music was more abstract than his early music. His late music involved more variations, fragmented themes, scales, and fast pace arpeggios. His late music is typically agreed to be his most favored pieces, suggesting that his deafness may have resulted in better compositions. His Ninth Symphony is also unique from his previous work because it was longer, more complex, and included a chorus and vocal soloists in the final movement, which had never been done before. If Beethoven had not lost his ability to hear, his Ninth Symphony may have sounded completely
Armstrong, himself, was a comedian, and would push the boundaries of the accepted forms of jazz and pop music. At one time, he invented “scat” while singing in the song “Heebie Jeebies”; Armstrong claimed that he dropped the lyric sheet, and when the time came for him to sing, he sang horn-like nonsense syllables instead. Armstrong was also a deft interpreter of lyrics and was a masterful singer, and always wanted to his entertain his audience; in the end, he found great success with his pop hits despite the opinions of critics who at that time believed that he should play music with a more serious
This concert was very intriguing to me because I have never gone to a solo guitar concert before. Before attending, I perceived that this concert would be tedious and soporific, as I believed it would only consist of slow and unenthusiastic tunes that I do not like. After attending, however, I realized how wrong I was. The first song sounded like a typical Romantic era piece; it had a mellow timbre and was quite soothing to hear. When the soloist stated that this song is played at weddings occasionally, I was not surprised at all to hear this.
Haydn’s Symphony No. 100 in G major came in one of those ups and downs mentioned earlier. But out of that tough time, Haydn’s Symphony 100 “enjoyed a career-high success. His Military Symphony was the 1794 season’s third and final premiere… “The audience demanded an encore after the second movement, which introduced ‘Turkish’ instruments previously only heard in the Opera House” Haydn’s Symphony is a loud robust piece. It is amazing.
I had heard of The Beatles throughout the course of my life but knew nothing about them; the only thing I was aware of was that teens still embrace them now as well as elderly folks. Out of all talented bands, The Beatles was the one that stood out to me not only because of their name, but because once I read a bit more about how they started and and their style characteristics, I was quite surprised. The fact that they were able to deliver music that “it was evident that their talents as composers and instrumentalists were expanding furiously, as they devised ever more inventive melodies and harmonies, and boosted the fullness of their arrangements” (Unterberger). Something that I had never heard before was that they were a one of a kind
Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the great gatsby was great, but as all adaptations it had its faults and its strengths during production. The song “100$ bill” by JayZ for instance, was not incorporated well as I do not believe that rap in a way was like jazz in Gatsby's time period. Not to say that Jay Z’s music is not great but the scenes that incorporated his music may have felt awkward to some modern day viewers. It just seems like on one hand Jay Z's music may have been a good representation of rap in his time but there was no sense of mysteriousness in his music like jazz was in gatsby’s ago. On the other hand the song “Young and Beautiful “ by -(Lana Del Rey) did fit great in the scenes that the song was depicted as it captured the majesticness
No one is singing the first few lines of the song. The lack of lipsyncing draws attention to the words and the main singer. The lyrics about Mumbai show that the person in focus may be Anil. Although Anil starts by singing, he doesn’t continue. Because Anil is just smiling, you are forced to look at his face and those around him to figure out who is singing.
As some of these musicians were not from well to do families, one could not afford a proper mute and used anything they could get their hands on. These sounds were unfamiliar and created a unique color that not anyone in those days have heard of. The sounds created were nicknamed jungle sounds, and this became an identity of Duke Ellington 's jazz
Is marching band rigorous and athletic enough to be considered a sport? From the very start of marching band, it has been considered an activity, or a hobby, and not a sport. Most people assume it isn’t athletic because it’s just an activity or a type of hobby that you do, and they don’t consider it athletic because they think you don’t need to put that much effort into it. The people who assume there isn’t much effort put into it also believe that marching band is really easy. I have marched with the Pride of the Hill band since my Freshman year, and experienced some marching in eighth grade, and it isn’t as easy as it seems.
