“La Mer” is a classical French piece of music that was written by Debussy in the twentieth century. The song begins with a disjunct sound caused by the different melodies and harmonies being played by different sections of the orchestra. Slowly out of the chaos brings a light, airy feeling that was accomplished by the help of a flute and violin solo. The excitement again grows causing a repetitive feel, but this time it is cultivated by the brass and the percussion sections that cause a tremendous increase in the volume of the piece. The song is halted, and proceeds as the cellos crescendo which seems to have a direct correlation to an increase in tempo.
After a while, it brings us lusty protests delivered in the form of cyclic harmonic episodes. The shortest tune of the record, “Sequoia/Kings Canyon”, features Wadada in great interactions with his peers, especially AkLaff during the final improvised section. The brilliant suite culminates with the sparse “Yosemite”, an exercise in contemporary chamber music. Cerebrally structured and emotionally haunting, this is a literate masterpiece that will marvel not only the trumpeter’s followers but also the avant-gardists in
The piece that was played during this particular piece was titled “Miracle of the Ark”. This particular piece was rather ominous and made the seen overall seem very suspenseful in the build up to the ark finally being opened. The actual moment that the ark is opened in the movie the orchestra quiets down and the string instruments play a rather fast suspenseful note while everyone looks on to see what is in the ark. It is then that the scene gets more intense with ghosts guarding the ark and melting anyone that looks at them. To make this scene seem more intense and powerful the orchestra really matched that and grew in volume.
Taruskin begins his essay by recounting an experiment done by the Washington Post. In this experiment, Joshua Bell dresses up in civilian clothes, goes down to a subway station with his Stradivarius, and play concert material Bach for the busy commuters. As the outcome was a general disinterest from the people rushing to their jobs, Taruskin begins his disapproval with the subsequent articles that used this experiment to argue for the irrelevance of classical music in a modern society. Instead, Taruskin explains that it was perfectly normal for people to rush by because they have completely different purposes in their mind than to recognize exquisite music.
The concert was held in an exceedingly luxurious environment which put everyone in the audience in a jubilant mood. The audience would tap their feet along to the catchy rhythm, then would cheer with an electrifying applause after each piece was performed. The band continued to draw the crowd’s attention by having every musician on the stage play their own solo in each song. When Byron Stripling and the Jazz St. Louis Big Band performed the last piece in their set of the night they ended it with every musician on stage shouting “Clark Terry” to end the exquisite
The focus on Mozart in the film as opposed to Salieri in the play The character of Mozart undergoes the most significant change from stage to screen. On stage he is portrayed as a genius composer but he is also is crude, vulgar, and a tactless young egotist who has absolutely no modesty with regard to his talent. Not only is he the centre of drama but he is shown as innocent and naïve to the devious world of court politics and too insensitive to veil his contempt for the court and Salieri’s music. It is partly due to the influence of Milos Forman that Mozart’s character was changed so drastically in the film.
The once repressed Beethoven then began to express his rage and other emotions into his music into many political symphonies like Bonaparte (Erocia), named after Napoleon (Kerman & Tomlinson 225). What was unique about Beethoven’s music was the fact that it was centered around the feelings and spirit of the composer, which was unlike much of the classical music before his time. It was almost as if Beethoven was starting his own revolution. Beethoven’s self-expression music was said to be the start of Romanticism age in music because of how it centered around personal passions, instead of pleasing God or audiences.
Evocative of much of the work he composed during his younger years Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 is a testament to his genius and mastery of classical musical forms. Written when he was just eighteen years old the composition is a concise and peculiar example of classical Sonata form. Instead of having an introduction before the exposition Mozart ops to present the primary theme of the piece’s Allegro movement at the start of the first downbeat. Exceptionally melodic the primary theme of the movement start with an authoritative leap of an octave in the violins.
I swear Yoongi is such a grandpa! How can it possibly take him half an hour to walk across campus? I tap my foot on the ground impatiently as the last few remaining high schoolers walk past me, eager to start off their weekend. A gust of cold wind disturbs the peaceful environment, and my gaze anxiously darts between my phone and the front doors of the main school building. The second I finally turn to leave, I hear a familiar voice from behind me.
First of all, the Mozart’s music in Amadeus is used to illustrate vividly the overall life of Mozart and the situation in which Mozart’s was in when he composed his music. The film Amadeus is based on the play of the same title written by Peter Shaffer which is created depending on the rumor floating around Vienna in the 1820s that Salieri poisoned Mozart. Even though it is clearly revealed that the rumor saying Mozart’s death is deeply related to Salieri is not true by several historical researches, still, the movie Amadeus depicts the fictional life of Mozart in a realistic way with appealing and enthrallment that the plot has. In addition to the narrative’s high level of immersion, the works of Mozart, which are properly placed with the

Religious Parallels in Frankenstein Victor Frankenstein’s pursuit of knowledge and personal glory drives him to create a new human being. He suffers from a god complex as he is completely unaware of the moral ramifications for creating life out of an inanimate body. Mary Shelley creates a dark parody between God and Adam, and Victor and his monster. In the creation of Adam we see God, the creator reach his hand out to Adam, his creation. We see a parallel of this in Shelley’s novel after Victor’s creature is complete.
