She puts passion and talent into her work that is unsurpassed in my opinion. However, “Misty” by Vaughan is one of my favorite works of hers. It is a perfect example of her slow vibrato and the amount of passion she puts in each of her works. This piece also shows her humorous side as the second repetition of the song is sung in a lower register mimicking a man. It is captivating to watch as she changes her very mannerisms becoming the male counterpart to this song.
I love this piece because it ends the first act on such a high positive note and is a great precursor to the title song. Another song I enjoyed was “Hello Dolly”. “Hello Dolly” is the big show stopping number. It is Dolly’s triumphant return to where she belonged. I love Dolly’s soft vocal line in the beginning of the song but as soon as the waiters come in they make her feel at home, she becomes more at ease and joins the waiters in this big bold brassy sound.
Onaodowan was using a husky voice that truly defined his character. They were playing their parts as they were singing even if they were playing in the East Wing than on a stage. Through their performance they were enjoying singing and made the music more interesting than a boring history lesson. You could tell they were enthusiastic through the energy shown through their performance. The vocals were dynamic and when the cast was singing louder it was easier to identify the important messages.
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.
For example at the very beginning there is a very special element that we don’t usually hear which is the church bells. This piece is filled with different expressions and dynamics, for instance in the first few phrases the feel of these measures are funereal and sad, whereas in the end of the piece we hear the brass section creating feelings of anger and rage. Additionally,
I enjoyed the emotions behind the piece and how it changed from sadness to something heavenly like. It was a great choice to have the French horn play the supporting line for this piece because it brung out a lot of the emotions as well as enhanced the singers words. I can see why the piece is named “Heart , We Will Forget’’ based on the way the emotions are played out , which is telling some sort of story of pain as well as the process of moving on and forgetting the pain as well as the person who caused the pain. I can also tell that the audience loved the piece based on the way they clapped louder this
Ironically, the piece ends not with the full orchestra, but with the woodwinds alone. So ends the glorious New World Symphony! My favorite part of the piece was in movement two, section B. That was when the violins supported the clarinets with theme two. It was the closest thing to a solo with the violins that you could get.
Befor Montag meets Clarisse, Montag sees himself as someone who has the power to manipulate the things around him and gets tremendous satisfaction from this, which is inferred in the quotation “his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning”.(3). Montag is a man divided against himself. He often experiences contradictory emotions and thoughts but Clarisse makes him feel safe and appreciated. The quote “he saw himself in her eyes … as if her eyes were two miraculous bits of violet amber that might capture and hold him intact”. infers that Clarisse has a calming effect on Montag.
“I worked hard. Anyone who works as hard as I did can achieve the same results” (Bach). Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the most influential composers of all time ("Top 10 Most Famous Classical Composers of All Time.") He lived during the Baroque period of music in the 17th century. Baroque music is a category of European Classical music and is recognized for ornamentation added to long melodic lines, the addition and use of harpsichord and basso continuos.
