This building is deeply deserving of a commemorative coin because it held the Governor’s Council and the House of Burgesses, helped us learn tyranny was unjust, and was built by contractor Henry Cary who created the Wren building. The Capitol had enormous historical significance and was of great importance during colonial times. They took the vote for independence, there
Berlioz produced Traite d’instrumentation et d’orchestration modernes (1844) as handbook for orchestration which served to later generations an introduction to the expressiveness that’s in music (Jaquez Barzun). Berlioz was a leader of the Romantic Movement, as he truly embodied the expressiveness and dramatization that the movement held key. He was able to create unique works and never repeated himself. The innovation of symphonies, expression in music, and true variety were all the edge Berlioz had. Even in his time it can be seen how he influenced others like Wagner with his style.
In the decades following the Civil War as the United States was changing from a primarily agricultural to an industrialized nation the American intellectual landscapes was changing in equally important ways. New ideas in the worlds of literature, science and philosophy were having great impact on intellectual and artistic endeavors and theses ideas were not just influencing the social elites but also America’s growing mass of ordinary, literate citizens. This influence would set in motion a change in mass direction for the United States. There are many important events that occurred during the Gilded Age. This age was birthed at a time following the Civil War, around the Reconstruction Era and it would continue to rise until its last breath
One reason that I like Beethoven is how he had managed to compose his last symphony, even though he was deaf. This just amazes and tells me how devoted to music Beethoven was. Music was Beethoven’s passion, and because of this, he is well-known in the world and is a very respected musician. Another reason I like Beethoven is that all of these works that he composed and performed, sound magnificent and just beautiful to me. Beethoven’s main music style was classical.

David was a very influential contributor to French painting during the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon. David was trained under the direction of Joseph-Marie Vien. Also, he studied in Rome. While studying in Rome he was heavily influenced by the experts of the Italian Renaissance such as Nicolas Poussin and Caravaggio.
Milton Babbitt was an extraordinary composer, philosopher, and intellectual who contributed immensely to the world of music. I used several books and scholarly resources to learn about his interesting life dedicated to his love of music. I used three books that allowed me to learn about his music, philosophy, and theories. These books included: Milton Babbitt: Words about Music, The Collected Essays of Milton Babbitt, and An Introduction to the Music of Milton Babbitt. I also used a scholarly article from Oxford Music Online to learn about the biography of Milton Babbitt, and how he became so interested in music.
Sousa Percy Grainger is one of the most well prominent figured heads of classic wind band literature. He, among with many of other composers, helped revive British folk music through his experimental compositions. Trained originally as a concert pianist, he used the untapped potential of wind ensembles as model for innovative composition. Country Gardens is one of Grainger’s most well known pieces. After playing this folk setting several times as a piano encore, he eventually had the score published.
From Bach to Tchaikovsky to Hazo (all of whom are classical composers), I feel the connection to their music and find that the classical music they produce says more than words and is able to tell a story with unlimited emotion. Music has a certain appeal that is wondrous and so different than any other form of communication. That is why it is so important to me. It is different and
The Enlightenment was the period for cultivation of science and human reason. Scientific discoveries were made and contributed to the growth of the people in Europe and America. The Enlightenment was a growth period in Europe and America, as people were told to rely on their own intellect instead of always looking to God for answers. Unfortunately, because of their existing class structure, religious positions, and authoritative rule, these new ideas in Europe could only be debated.
Introduction “For there 's Basie, Miller, Satchmo and the king of all Sir Duke.” Stevie Wonder. There is no bigger name in the history of American music, especially in Jazz, than Duke Ellington. But many don’t know the man behind many of Sir Duke’s timeless classics, that man is Billy Strayhorn. It is said these two had a symbiotic relationship where neither would have been as good without the other. Strayhorn, the genius composer and arranger, to Ellington the charismatic performer and band leader the world knew and loved.
Guiseppe had many amazing milestones throughout his life. However, his greatest accomplishments are his works in Oberto, his first composition (1839), La Traviata, his most well known work (1853), and all his other great compositions which left a mark in history. An inspirational quote Verdi once said is the following "Of all composers, past and present, I am the least learned." This was because as a child, he lacked a strong education in music. His accomplishments were essentially out of his passion for the art.
In 1675, Isaac Newton stated "if I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." This sentiment is not solely confined to scientific disciplines, but extends throughout nearly every aspect of life. Progress cannot be obtained without innovation, and musical theater is no exception. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s work, especially that of Hamilton, would be nowhere as successful as it is without the influence of artists before him. It is apparent the work of Claude-Michel Schönberg, most notably Les Miserables, did much to shape Hamilton into the hit musical it is today.

After fleeing due to the attacks from the War of the Grand Alliance, Pachelbel got a job at Gotha in 1692 as town organist.
