The length of this movement itself (691 measures) is as long as a whole symphony in the previous generation and it is what made this movement ‘heroic’. Beethoven treated the main melody in this movement like a character in a drama. Beethoven started an unusual trend in the exposition by letting the cello play the pastoral theme which outlines an E-flat major triad. The triple meter is another bizarre trait, yet when it’s combined with the tempo of this movement; it reminds the listener of Deutsche peasant dance. The primary theme (see fig.
There is an very interesting thing that in this movement, Strauss use the same motive with the first movement of Brahms Violin Sonata no.1. This can be considered as Strauss’s respect to

This is then followed by a sing-song like eight-note figure that features a pointed forward momentum. The rhythmic building blocks of the theme is constructed in two bar phrases which then sequences upward by step (Example 1). The accompaniment to the theme is sustained half notes played by the second violins, Violas, and Cellos The home key and the harmonic content of the exposition is also very clear in its presentation. The opening of the movement is in A major and remains primarily diatonic in its harmonic content, with only the occasional passing tone. The primary theme is played twice having a four-bar transition in between each quotation (Example 2).
There is also less chromaticism than what Chopin would write. Chopin explored his range much more than Field, as his open handed playing allowed him to simply do more with the piano. With the chromaticism, it creates dissonance that pulls strongly to resolve back to the tonic. This is absent in the Field Nocturnes. There is also not as much counterpoint in the Field Nocturnes.
It is one of six quartets of Op. 33 which were first premiered in Vienna on the 25th of December, 1981. It is performed by a string quartet, a first and second violin, viola and a cello, which is considered the finest type of chamber music. It is said that Haydn is known as ‘The Father
In the A section, the accompaniment is in pianissimo and is meant to played etwas bewegt or somewhat with movement. Most of the harmonies in this section are diatonic and functional. The piece begins with a E major arpeggio in its first inversion, or a V6 chord. Most of the accompaniment in the A section consists of arpeggios in the right hand, with a chord in the left hand played on the first beat. This continues throughout the A section.
Ivan Vsevolozhsky, the director, approached Tchaikovsky and asked if it was possible for him to write a score for the ballet. After the failure of Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky did not want to do another ballet. But, after reading the story and falling in love with it, he wanted to immediately write the score for the ballet. Without hesitation, Tchaikovsky worked quickly and finished the score in less than 40 days. Unlike The Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky kept in touch with the director and the choreographer so that the music would fit in perfectly.

Song Title: So What Artist: Miles Davis (Music writer) The music starts with Piano sound and little bit guitar sound in the background. Then these both sounds are overtaken by dramatic start of saxophone music.
Secondly, Staryhorn’s work often contained greater tenderness. As the saying of bassist Aaron Bell, a one time Ellingtonian, “There’s so much more sensitivity and complexity in Strayhorn’s composition than Ellington’s”. The lyrics of “Lush Life” demonstrated the born sensitivity of the song writer. They created a worldly despair so vivid and touching that it was hard to believe that the song was written by a 16-year-old teenager. Being a trio-minority-African American, gay, and open about his sexual orientation, Strayhorn lived under pressure and had his own
Jingle Bells was played at an Allegro tempo and articulated the sweet sound that comes from the whole band creating a swing beat to match a nostalgic preference of Christmas being so close. The Flute Trio expressed their excellence in soothing music from their selection Silent Night played at an Andante tempo. Their other song Carol of the Bells played at a Moderato tempo and was quite lively with each player playing different tunes all at the same time. The song selections were perfect for the theme and they had a familiar

During our concert we messed up, but played well. All together I think we did pretty good. We did really good at starting and ending notes together. In a section of the music the section repeat the same rhythm but at different times. The whole band sounded together.
First thing we did was get our seats. Then we began to play and learn songs. The year went on and after two months, I was advanced. Mrs. Payne told me I was moved up into Senior Band, along with another boy named Eli. We now had to go early every morning, because we still had to go to Junior Band to help the others.
