( In the book Jazz Styles: History and Analysis, music writer Mark C. Gridley describes his playing). An interview of Bill Evans called the The Universal Mind of Bill Evans discussed his creative process. He said that he sees as a process rather than a style and he gave some of the example of builds up a jazz improvisation that he will do such as starting with a simple line and adding come layers of rhythmic, harmonic and melodic variation. (Need citation) Analyze by Jazz pianist, educator, arranger and composer Andy Laverne: Bill Evans right-hand lines often ended up in the higher reaches of the keyboard as a result of the position of his left-hand voicing. Evans’ introspective style gave rise to frequent inner voice movement, which infused a contrapuntal component into his playing.
The abrupt silence in between the themes seemed to build a form of climax to the piece. The English horn gave this piece so much character appropriate for the era it was composed. Throughout the piece, I like the way the English horn was the foundation of the piece and with accompaniment and response of flute and oboe made everything flow together so euphorically. The sixth piece of the evening was Canonic Sonata No. 2 in D Major TWV 40:120 Spirituoso composed by G.P Telemann.
There is a staccato chromatic descent repeated in the chords and then the strings leading to violins in piano with rapid ascent and crescendo. Cellos and basses are also in piano descending with long low tones introduced (Kamien, 2014: 297). A death bell of sonorous bells creates an amazing atmosphere to the next section of the movement. This melody is the medieval chant Dies irae which is traditionally 8 sung in the mass ceremony for the dead. The chant melody is soon shifted up to a higher register and is played by woodwinds and pizzicato 9 strings in a quick dance-like rhythm (Kamien, 2014: 297).
In the final movement Allegro molto, the piano performs agile quickness, and the string melodies intertwine with each other, then merge in strong accord. These flashes of simplicity are not expressed as musical outcomes, but rather emerge naturally from the piece 's vivid lines. It delivers its statement through coaxing rather than by the strength of
These modifications helped develop the clarinet. The extra length helped with the intonation of the instrument and helped develop a more mature tone. The bell supported a wider dynamic range of the instrument, and the removable mouthpiece was designed in order to use different types of wood in order to get different timbres out of the instrument (Gabucci). This instrument is called the 2-key clarinet. This then lead way to another modification of the clarinet in order to gain even more control of the instrument.
The concert had all types of instruments. The concert was played by a couple of people that love to play jazz music. They had a saxophone, piano, trumpet, guitar, cello and one singer. The loved when I listen to just the piano player with the saxophone it made it sound
Paganini uses ascending and descending octave double stops at a fast tempo frequently in this piece. After the A section closes, the B section begins. The B section is very similar the introduction. The same rhythmic patterns are used and the same emotion is produced. Octave passages are used that produce a weighted feeling on the listener, just as it is in the introduction.
However, the clarinet in A, just a semitone lower, is commonly used in orchestral music. Since the middle of the 19th century the bass clarinet (nowadays invariably in B♭ but with extra keys to extend the register down a few notes) has become an essential addition to the orchestra. The clarinet family ranges from the (extremely rare) BBB♭ octo-contrabass to the A♭ piccolo clarinet. The clarinet has proved to be an exceptionally flexible instrument, equally at home in the classical repertoire as in concert bands, military bands, marching bands, klezmer, and
The work displayed Beethoven’s middle period compositional style that shows great advance in terms of musical and writing style for the violin. Overall, the 2nd movement was well-proportioned. Occasionally, the piano part is more complex than the violin part however the principal theme is shared between the Violin and Piano. Max Bruch Violin Concerto in G minor
The first movement, like the Gershwin Concerto in F, starts off in a percussive way, but with just one beat by an interesting instrument (a clapper) which sparks playful and watery arpeggios from the piano soon after. The flute provides little dance-like rhythms to join those arpeggios, followed by quick rising and falling piano glissandos that create rainbows of brilliant colors. The first flute theme returns soon after, which then transitions into a slow and mysterious slow theme from the piano which gives off an almost bluesy feel. That particular flute theme, along with the slow piano theme, could be classified as main themes of this movement because both return after a developmental episode that follows the first appearance of the slow theme.Towards the end of this movement, we get a long series of magical-sounding ascending and descending piano trills which then fall into a very low, but ambitious bass line which carefully (but quickly) builds up into a climactic and cheerful finale that concludes the movement with an exciting boom at the
1. Alexander’s Ragtime Band was composed by Irving Berlin and performed by The Andrews Sisters. The style of music is jazz music. The melody goes by piano and singer, and harmony goes by bass, trumpet and harmony singer. The tempo was going little fast on this song and the meter measured by 4/4 times.
