I personally really like Beethoven’s Fifth, and especially the fact that it’s so popular amongst people who wouldn’t say they’re classical music fans. It’s many people’s first introduction to this magical world of beautiful sounds. A rhythm is very identifiable, even if the composer changes all the notes and the harmonies. After doing some research about this piece, I learned the Fifth symphony is in four movements: sonata, andante, scherzo and finale. The music itself is so strikingly dramatic,
Dressed in matching silver outfits the members of the celebrated group arrived to the stage and proceeded to bring the song to its full sonic sound. Frontman Ruben’s charisma fueled the set as he proclaimed to the crowd, “Are you all tired, because it’s time to dance!” The band then dove into the colorful anthem Las Flores where I proceeded to frolic and jump along with all the photographers in the pit, a true bonding moment with strangers. Cafe Tacvba did not disappoint their longtime fans, as they played all time favorites La ingrata, Chilanga Banda, and La Chica
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. The waiters could not be happier to see her and you could really hear it in their vocal parts. The repeats in the music adds more to the character of Dolly and her personality. The finale of this song, where you hear the slow key change in the music is so epic. All of the waiters are all singing and dancing across the stage in harmony, it is so big, and grand it really shows that Dolly is here and she will never leave again.
Giovanni Vivaldi loved music, and learned to play the violin well enough to join the orchestra of St. Mark’s Basilica, a position he held for the rest of his life. Since Vivaldi became an accomplished violinist, researchers assume that he had excellent fine motor coordination skills and had reasonably high stamina as long as he didn’t need to stand or speak (relating to his chest/breathing problems). While Vivaldi is most famous as a composer, he was regarded as an exceptional technical violinist as
He put out many records and his popularity grew even in outside countries. Armstrong also was the beginning of the popularity of “scat” singing (Biography.com). With the hot five and seven his first two most commons songs were “Cornet Chop Suey” and “Potato Head Blues”. Both were heavy with his singing and masterful trumpets solos and improvisations. It was this one of a kind Jazz and blues feeling that got him to the top of the
The vocals were dynamic and when the cast was singing louder it was easier to identify the important messages. By rapping louder, Miranda says “ I’m not throwing away my shot” he uses hand gestures showing that he is taking a stand playing his part as Alexander Hamilton. The cast of Hamilton has done an exceptional job performing and has become part of our
As soon as the concert started I was utterly ravished by the opening number. The only popular symphonic orchestra in New York-- the New York Pops presented one of Billy Strayhorn's jazz classics, Take the a Train, took me traveling through big apple, down into the eastern Brooklyn, up into the northern Manhattan. The jazzy vibe, gosh, killed me softly. The reason why I chose a Jazz concert for my concert report was because I was also very fond of Jazz. I liked the feeling that Jazz provided.
It was louder and fast pace again. Some of the parts sounded really familiar, especially when the trumpet took over and played louder than the rest of the instruments. I once again did not catch the name of the piece being played. When the five men were over with their songs, the UMD jazz band came out. There was a lot more instruments for the next songs that were to be played.

“I’m very tough,” he says. “And I am not not brave. I do this, and we’re very successful.” At the end of a performance by the Mark Morris Dance Group, Mark Morris himself appears on stage, arms flung wide. He takes a swooping, extravagantly theatrical bow to the audience and then turns to salute his dancers. This gesture of thanks is warm, humble and hugely embracing.
The audience seemed thrilled, and, as the performance progressed the people started to get up from their seats, moving along with the melody, and singing out loud. The Alternatives noticed the positive response to their music and carried on with no hesitation. The lead singer, Marcus Allen, accompanied by the lead guitarist Sheldon Kay began their duo, which lead to the opening of the next song. The first set ended up with a melancholic track, performed by the acoustic guitar of Derrick, with a noticeable sound of the bass guitar of
This song songs and feels like almost like 2 different songs pieced together. There is an orchestra that breaks up a piece of the song. It was interesting to hear the orchestra playing and it made me wonder why they played the notes they did. After researching information on the song I found that it was Paul McCartney who instructed then to play in this manner, instruments from the lowest note to the highest. This is definitely attributed to the uniqueness of the song and overall I thought it was great.
The performer was very skilled on the organ and played this piece beautifully, Marshall seemed confident in his performance and looked like he was enjoying playing it. Sonata VI was a fast to very fast tempo, throughout the entire piece. In the program the piece was said to be allegro molto meaning very fast. Again, the piece was very spiritual like the first and had a catholic harmonic feel as well. The audience enjoyed this piece, their eyes were closed letting the music flow through them.
