The fan of classical music may absorbed with the majority of piano notes while the music lover will also spot that the soundtrack is admirable. Of course this captivating soundtrack can’t exist without Jay’s intervention as he’s the arranger for all of Secret’s
Matthew Silkowski Mister Saleeba English IV 12 March 2018 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is, and always will be, regarded as one of, if not the, greatest composer of his time. Mozart opened the door for all composers to come, and his pieces are still referred to today for new composers.
Personally, the execution of the rendition was flawless and very professionally conducted. The cry from the violin was cantabile in nature taking charge amongst the other instruments
When I first walked into Freedom Middle School, there were a lot of clubs to choose from. I just couldn’t make up my mind. Then I caught sight of the orchestra room. It was full of interesting instruments, and enthusiastic hominids, like me, ready to learn. At first I assumed it was not the correct choice for me, but then I got a feel for it and realized how inspiring and life eventful it is.
The melodies in The Magic Flute always linger on hours after I have listened to them. What is more, the conductor of the version I listened to, Riccardo Muti and the Wiener Philharmoniker excellently executed performance of this beautiful,masterful work. Lastly, The Magic Flute contains one of my favourite arias ever written because of how dramatic it is but more importantly how technically demanding it is and it is none other than the famous Queen of the Night aria (translated to English), ‘Hell’s Vengeance Boils In My Heart’ and specifically the version sung by Edita
Zander, a great presenter, was very energetic on the stage that retained the audience’s attention. In his presentation, he usually includes body gestures such as hand gestures and nodding head, etc. several times, Zander walked into the audience and engaged with them. He also mentioned that only 3 percent of the population are classical music lover’s. So, his dynamic presentation style worked well enough to keep people’s attention to a topic that they may not be interested in.
Critical Comments-what did you hear and why or why not did you enjoy it, instruments, tempo, style, expression, time period, etc. There is so much variation in this piece. The dynamics of the sudden crescendos and decrescendos. The pieces gives me sense of dramatic story telling. I like the call and response that is played in the section of the music.
In conclusion, I have learned a lot about Mozart. I hope that people of this generation will continue to listen to his music. He was one of the greatest composers. His legacy still has a big effect on our modern lives, his music flows through our everyday lives through mediums like commercials, nursery rhymes and movies. I will continue to learn more about him and listen to his music and experience
At the tender age of 22, Narcis, the “Wunderkind” of the high register, has been captivating audiences around the world with his extraordinary voice and vocal technique, which lends his voice a unique clarity. For a very long time, no young crossover artist has been received with such enthusiasm from the classical music scene. The Frankfurter Rundschau recently referred to him as ”a countertenor, as bright as Callas".
I really enjoy how the song starts out really slow as if there is no hope for the guy to get the girl, but then there is a crescendo that almost makes it seems like there is a new boost of confidence as well as a little bit of anger, then he returns back to the slower, softer tempo as if he has kind of given up. To me, the rhythm of this piece of music gives additional emotional effect. The elements of music can be applied to every song whether it is classical, country, rap, or pop. They make song more interesting to listen to.
My favorite selection was “Carol of the Bells.” This was my favorite because I have always loved fast, and upbeat music. I also liked how they used many different bells, and played them on the accents of the song. I also liked how the men were singing one part, while the women were singing another.
Samantha (Sami) Weathersby Personal Statement The arts have surrounded my life and family since I took my first breath. I experienced music, dance, storytelling, theatre, and visual arts immersion constantly, from the piano in our living room, to Mozart cassette tapes in the car, to pre-school church choirs. Early in life, I found that singing and dancing gave me a sense of pure joy and fulfillment distinctly unlike anything else. It provided freedom and catharsis and helped me escape real life.
Before this I had never attended a classical concert, so this was a new experience for me. This concert was worthwhile because not only was it affordable, it was also great for the price. Each song made me feel different, I could sense the emotion coming from these songs and the way the musicians played together added a feeling of satisfactory altogether. The venue had a large impact on the performance. The Nightingale Concert Hall provided great acoustics for the performances and fit well with the overall style of the concert.
I could tell this was the most polished group. Not only did they sing octappella for a majority of their songs but also the mix of men and women did not go unnoticed. You could tell just by the way the constantly posed themselves, they were either music majors or life long enthusiasts of the arts. I personally connected with the song “Ave Maria”, because it was song at my grandfathers funeral last Christmas. The performance made me emotional and even brought me to tears.
His influences are blended with Gerry Mulligan’s way, and this combination is fueled by penetrating improvisations of Luis Bonilla on trombone and Brian Landrus on baritone sax. Schaphorst also takes the opportunity to display his skills on trumpet in “Global Sweet”, a somewhat spiritual chant enveloped in glamour. The album couldn’t have had a better ending with “Descent”, an impulsively groovy (impeccable foundation by Jay Anderson and Matt Wilson) and vividly swinging piece that shakes us with its emotional robustness.
