Jordan Lance Mrs. Baird English 4 26 March 2018 British Music Do you ever wonder how music had evolved from classical music to today's music? We didn't go straight from classical music to pop , hip-hop and hard rock. We had to think outside the bock and be brave. We had to invent new technology and we didn't just sing for religion anymore we sang to make a statement , to express ourselves. Pearson states ( Music played in the 1960’s) “Rock music dominated the popular music scene during the decade and as the genre grew and changed, many diverse and new subgenres emerged, all tied to original rock but each with their own unique style and purpose.
The British Invasion marks a historical time in the world of music. Society was rapidly changing and means of what was “socially acceptable” played a huge part in music how we know it today. Starting in the 1060’s bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Animals were just the people to start a revolution of music in the United States. According to Kenneth Olwig, author of “The ‘British Invasion’: the ‘new’ cultural geography and beyond”, “It took a British group to teach American musicians about the vitality of American Rock and Roll as a contemporary, largely urban, phenomena” (Olwig 2010). This statement brings to attention the British attitude towards the situation.

Hampshire: Ashgate. Hannan (2008) identifies and explores the elements that made Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band so ground breaking in terms of sound design, music production, signal processing, recording techniques, and the different instrumental playing techniques employed in each one of the songs. The text presents a rich discussion of the creative ways in which the studio equipment was used, and the production processess that the Beatles pioneered. Although traditional harmonic and/or melodic analyses are not covered in very much detail, this book chapter provides a vast amount of materials that can help demonstrate how Sgt.
Goulds 1955 version differs from his 1981 version , in this 1981 recording he shows evidence of a clearer formation and structure. it is evident that Goulds thoughts on the goldberg variations changed over the years that he realised how unorganised his 1955 version was as he was young performing it. His 1955 performance of the variations shows Goulds rush with the work and a quick way to fame as it was a huge highlight in his career but his 1981 version shows a more introspective idea and a unified overall sound. Goulds passion towards records also made and influence in his works and showed through his creativity in the 1955 recording. Goulds mentions how recordings have changed how people listen to music ''that for composers, recording makes this threat a fact, and if they have an executant skill, ensures that poserity will judge them not only for their works but for their interpretations of the works'' (Gould, p.343) that music no longer can be heard and judged critically on its own performance and sound but now with the new technology introduced over the years that aspect of music has changed and no longer has the same feeling to it as it would have in the past that it is now judged in all angles from performance to the details in theory and notes.
How and why Reverie is an impressionist piece, along with other musical and contextual factors will be thoroughly discussed in the following investigation. Impressionistic music was a movement among many Western classical composers such as Claude Debussy, mainly during the 19th and early 20th century. It is a style in which the music focuses on atmosphere and conveying moods and emotions creating s sense of “detached observation” rather than expressing a detailed tone-picture, by portraying deeply felt emotion to tell a story. Depending on the artist, one of the most important musical element in impressionism is timbre, which is often by the use of orchestration, harmony, texture variants and gradients etc. These impressionistic pieces often also accommodate new chord combinations, ambiguous tonality, extended harmonies, exotic scales, parallel motions and irregular phrase structures and lengths.
This essay will draw attention to the relationship between the political and social circumstances surrounding the creation and performance of J.S Bach’s Concerto no.4 in G major (Brandenburg). Other factors such as how improved technology (instrumental and print), at that point of time, changed the way that music was created, transmitted and performed will also be discussed. Johann Sebastian Bach (J.S Bach) was born on March 31st, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany to a prominent musical family. His father, Johann Ambrosius Bach, the director of town musicians, taught him to play the violin and harpsichord whilst his uncle, Johann Christoph Bach, introduced him to the organ. Bach held a few notable musical posts over his lifetime in different parts of
(2) 2nd period where Beethoven began to lose his hearing, his music changed as he expanded the traditional style forms and let it sounded emotionally more powerful and full of boldness. (3) He strived to search for new sounding and he restudied Bach’s work in hoping to absorb the polyphonic color infused in his later works. The Violin Sonata No. 6 was published in 1803 and dedicated to Czar Alexander I of Russia. The work displayed Beethoven’s middle period compositional style that shows great advance in terms of musical and writing style for the violin.
Bach was claimed “the Father of music” Toccata means ‘to touch’, generally for keyboard instruments. It came from Renaissance and commonly they are used for showing off players playing and improvising techniques, it contains lots of sudden changes of rhythm etc. Bach has composed eleven Toccatas in his life, four for organ and seven for keyboards.
