The melodies in The Magic Flute always linger on hours after I have listened to them. What is more, the conductor of the version I listened to, Riccardo Muti and the Wiener Philharmoniker excellently executed performance of this beautiful,masterful work. Lastly, The Magic Flute contains one of my favourite arias ever written because of how dramatic it is but more importantly how technically demanding it is and it is none other than the famous Queen of the Night aria (translated to English), ‘Hell’s Vengeance Boils In My Heart’ and specifically the version sung by Edita
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.
Tim Burton’s use of non-diegetic sound in movies greatly contributes to his overall tone and mood. An example is the starting credits of Alice in Wonderland, where the music is mysterious and suspenseful. It is meant to make you feel like something big and magical is coming, but you don 't know what. The music foreshadows the entire movie in these couple starting seconds and helps with the mystery of sort of, but not really, knowing what will happen. Music during the movie also helps set the tone and mood of the individual scene.
Where in the opening sequence of the movie has a happy emotional then quickly changed to dark eerie sounds triggering the feeling of reality in Wall-E world and this affects the audience emotions. Later the same piece of music is used in the introduction scene to Wall-E home creating a link back to that earlier scene in the movie giving the audience the emotion connection with the story of why that piece of music played at that time . Burtt also uses a synchronous sound technique when he wants to help the audience to define realism in a scene by implementing certain sound files he has created from Foley recording develop a link between the action on the screen and the audio sound which clearly detected in the scene where Wall-E meet Eve. Furthermore this scene introduces the characters dialog some of the narration within the movie. The Character voices is artificially enhanced to give the perception of robotic and Space like world Because Wall-E is an animation Ben Burtt had no production sound content to work with from production shoots so he had to apply a methodology that pushed Burtt to create approximately 2600 new sound files which took three years of his time for the movie which at the time was his biggest project.
A new feature that Haydn included in this quartet was naming the minuet movement in each quartet Scherzo meaning ‘joke’ in Italian. He used Rondo form also which had not been used before this by Haydn. The rondo finales matched the light and playful character of the whole piece. The nickname The Joke was given because of the obscure rests at the end of its rondo finale. The six quartets of Op.33 were first played on the 25th of December, 1781 in Vienna for the Grand Duke of Russia, which so lead the nickname, the ‘Russian’ Quartets.
A large number of orchestrators and composers tour around the world playing his music and trying to mimic his musical studies. Mozart’s music was very gentle and subtle, and easy to listen to for long periods of time. There is still a lot of study going on about his music because it is believed that there is a thing called the “Mozart Effect”. The Mozart Effect is where it is believed that listening to Mozart’s music can stimulant the brain increase brain activity. Listening to his music can help you study for a test or exam, help you remember certain things about a topic, etc.
Unlike The Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky kept in touch with the director and the choreographer so that the music would fit in perfectly. The melodies that he wrote for the ballet are described as sweet, warm and magical. The premiere of The Sleeping Beauty ballet was held on January 15, 1890 and took place in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre. The three-act ballet was loved by the audience and was highly praised by the public. This was surely one of his successful ballet and he was highly pleased with his work.
The work which was frequently alluded to was Beethoven’s ninth symphony, Ode to Joy. Music is the one passion for Alex apart from violence and it is the only thing that makes him a real human with feelings instead of a person that sleeps all day, then wakes up to have sex, take drugs, and use violence. During the Alex’s treatment the love of music was taken from him, just another reason why Alex turned into a human robot or a clockwork orange. The imagery of “blood” in the novel is very different from usual as well.
The first song they start off with is called Michelangelo by Astor Pizzolla, with that piece it was such a strong introduction you could hear the silence in the crowd it was astonishing. The second piece they played was a new song they are starting to perform, this was the second time ever playing it, called A fuego lento by Horacio Salgan. The dynamic in the pieces were amazing as well, but really interested me in this piece was the flute and clarinet. The notes they were playing were so high speed and challenging it was so cool to see because I know that takes some hard work to pull that off and still be in tempo. Tango is also a form of dancing, so while
The clear, sweet singing melody floated out from my three quarter-sized violin as my chubby fingers flew on the fingerboard. Ending with a stunning beautiful G, thunderous applause descended. A sense of accomplishment filled me. I finally lived on the legacy of spreading the love and appreciation for classical music. Yes, Mr Menuhin passed on the legacy to my father, and now, it is up to my father to pass it on to me.
The first group to perform was the AHS Concert Chorus. This portion of the concert went really well. It included some greatly performed pieces. The songs performed by this group were “Snow/Winter Wonderland”, “Slow Rockin Christmas”, “Grown Up Christmas List”, and “Grandma 's Killer Fruitcake”. My favorite of the pieces was “Snow/Winter Wonderland” because it is the only song from this group that I actually know, which makes it easier to enjoy.
