The first three notes are simply the tonic chord of C major followed by the distinctive continuation of the theme with quicker, attached notes, dotted notes, and scalar passage that includes melodic sequence. The exposition ends with a strong cadence. The recapitulation reviews the material from the exposition in the original order. This composition is a very unique piece. It is one of Beethoven’s best pieces that are still played all around the world for orchestras.
Joseph Kromholz was the main musician on the violin with accompaniment from Cicilia Yudha on the piano. This piece was played at a slower tempo that I compared to adagio but later in the piece the tempo increased in speed similar to allegro and then slows back down to adagio. Mozart also made the sonata very repetitive with many crescendos and decrescendos throughout the piece. The piece includes solos from both the
Listening Log 5-Part 2-Bohemian Rhapsody: Brief Description: The song, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, by Queen is a beautiful song. I am truly in love with song mostly because my cousin is such a big fan and that’s all we listen to when we drive in the car with him. Queen consists of four members, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. These four artists wrote the song and recorded with the label EMI and released it by October 31st, 1975. This song is a single from the album “A night at the Opera” and has a B-side track of two songs, “I’m in Love with My Car” and “Death on Two Legs”.
Janine Jansen and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam exquisitely rendered Antonio Vivaldi’s composition. The performance featured all twelve movement broken up into four concertos. The concert featured mainly instruments from the stringed family and one harpsichord. The performance exhibited the various musical concepts envisioned by Vivaldi. Ultimately, the angelic talent of Janine Jansen gifted the audience with a breathtaking rendition.
23 (1807), Symphony No. 6 (1807-1808), Violin Concerto (1806), etc. All of these beautiful works composed by Beethoven are still remembered till this date. I like Beethoven for many reasons. One reason that I like Beethoven is how he had managed to compose his last symphony, even though he was deaf.
Setting movement one a choral fantasia, movement four a Unison chorale, Bach used 4-part choir together with orchestra represented by violin, bassoon, piccolo, horn, organ and double reeds, creating its vivid timbre while not losing sacred sense. The heart of the orchestra, violin, leads a different melody from SATB, introducing main fluctuations of the music and displaying an overall emotional style. Other instruments, for example, the bassoon performs correspondingly with the choir in the similar melody and speed, setting lower extent of steady harmony [Bach, Wachet auf, movt. 1, 0:57-1:17], The organ plucks major chords ornamentally, picturing an angel touching the church wall and flourishing the music in triple meter [Bach, Wachet auf, movt. 1,
The music in Swan Lake is dramatic, is telling a story by following a sequence without saying a word. Even if you are not a fan of classic ballet you get involved in the drama they are presenting. This music made me think about royalty; music you easily expect to hear when a king and queen are present. In The Rite of Spring the music is different from the Swan Lake because is non-traditional, is more ethnic, and appears to be spontaneous,
Sophie Shao and Milana Strezeva displayed this well in their performance. Sophie Shao’s cello performance and Milana Strezeva’s piano performance was definitely beautiful and enjoyable to my ears. I have attended multiple orchestral concerts and piano recitals, but Sophie Shao definitely had the most emotion and enthusiasm in her playing. I could tell by the way she spoke of each of the pieces and how she described the composers that she was very knowledgeable in the field of music and how much passion she had towards both music and the cello. I enjoyed the performance to the fullest extent and I hope to see hear her play again
I had intermediate knowledge going into this event because I was a former aristocrat in high school and had to listen and perform in different major keys. We mostly performed a lot of Bach music, so I understand how bouncy and happy his music is and what chords to play. Although aristocrat was
Hayden’s symphonies charm me with their hypnotic reveries. With fingers skittering Mendelsohn and pounding Grieg, I bring dimension to my world. Music lifts me from pianissimo to fortissimo, different triads expressing my thoughts better than my voice can. When I play, I wrap my audience in rhapsodies, creating a sacred moment of lingering connection, uniting a diverse community in harmony. As part of the UChicago Orchestra, I want to be in tune with my peers and connect the diverse school
These songs were comicial with a refreshing twist. Megan Ihnen was the solo singer throughout the pieces. The second act was a concerto featuring three soloists. A Pianist, Cello player, and flutist. before they began the cellist introduced herself and told a little about the song.
Where we went to study with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart another popular classical and romantic period composer. Ludwig Beethoven is famous for his music which is played in orchestra, symphony, or Piano. He was the composer who made Für Elise, Ode to Joy, and Moonlight Sonata. Ludwig Van Beethoven impacted the world with his music. Beethoven 's music is being played by kids and adults on Piano, Violin, and a lot of other instruments.
When watching Oistrakh you can see that he makes precise, but quick strokes on the strings of the violin with his fingers that in turn gives off a certain note. To me as a listener the piece sounds real suspenseful and gives off a chilling sensation to the audience. The second artist that I listened to was Issac Stern. This concerto took place in Paris during 1967. The piece that was performed started off as a long somber melody that gives off calming sensation.
The saxophone had a smooth and light feeling. The orchestra followed the saxophone in an imitative way. The dynamics were in mezzo forte and the tempo was in adagio. The tone colors of this piece were echoey, vibrant, warm, and pingy. This piece had long smooth notes for the
