In this piece, we actually hear two movements. The first movement is allegro moderato followed by the second movement in allegro molto. All of which was played by four musicians, with the following wind instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon. The first movement opens with what I believe is the flute accompanied by the deep sound of the bassoon. Both instruments had a mini solo at the beginning to capture the audience and then they were accompanied by the oboe and clarinet.
The tranquil violin passages give the impression of improvisational material. This movement begins with a beautiful love song until a turbulent middle sections rudely interrupts its dream-like reverie. The finale, Andante-Allegro, begins with a quiet, introspective introduction in the piano alone which then leads into an exuberant Allegro. At the Allegro, the violin breaks forth with ascending, slashing passages from its lowest to its highest register, creating a sense of drama and importance. However, then comes a playfulness that sneaks into the music almost without notice.
Bach’s C minor Fugue from the Well-Tempered Clavier Book I: Discuss how the main motif (the first few notes) is transformed and developed throughout the work. At the beginning of Bach’s C minor Fugue from the Well-Tempered Clavier Book I the main motif is introduced: a five-note motif consisting of two semiquavers leading into three quavers. It is part of a bigger theme, which consists of semiquaver and quaver movement. Although the motif itself is simple in comparison to Bach’s more complex pieces, it is significant and effective as it transforms and develops throughout the piece. From beginning to end the catchy motif varies and a certain complexity is added but the memorable touch is still quite evident.
The both music I chose is the music that I have played in orchestra by violin before. Symphony No.2 is the one that I played as concertmistress that I have emotional attachment to the song itself too. I found an interest on romantic nationalistic music on the use of variety of the instruments by emotional and expressive way. Both music contains the folk song elements and especially L’Arlesienne has the drama too. It have been a decade since I learned these music, but its catchy melodies still sticks in my head.
In essence, music is the index of humanity which allows the audience to reach new heights in understanding music. My first classical concert held at the Organ Recital Hall was composed of a series of magnificent expositions. The first group, a musical ensemble, performed samples from Italian composer Pietro Locatelli. In the beginning of the piece members of the chordophone family (Violins,Cellos,Bass,Viola) all began to harmonize with each other immediately establishing the tone of the performance. Altogether, the instruments intensity was high as well as expeditious.
Her performing career was pretty smooth sailing throughout her life due to the connections and having great musicians as her close friends to perform chamber music together. Not only did she play new pieces composed by her husband and her friends, she also played masterpieces of the late baroque and classical period, which shone her from other pianists of that period as it was not common then. Clara Wieck was thankful for her father’s strictness as she believed this had a strong impact on bringing her up as a substantial
Keghan Delacenserie MUST0802 The Art of Listening Audio Critique #1 – Meredith Willson’s “Till There Was You” 1. Musical characteristics: a. Melody: After an eight-bar introduction where Marian explains why she finally decided to meet up with Harold, she starts singing an A melody: “There were bells…”. After she repeats the A melody with a different set of lyrics – “There were birds…” – she switches to a B melody: “And there was music…”. After one instance of the B melody, she returns to the A melody with a different set of lyrics: “There was love…”. After that, there is an instrumental break where the strings play the B melody.
Five movements, instead of the usual four in the classical sonata, a cyclical, symphonic-poem like setting and a compact ecriture relying heavily on block chords, disregarding any "light" embellishments which are typical of the piano ecriture of the epoch are some of its striking aspects. Interestingly, a similar ecriture will also show up in his most late works particularly the Clarinet (or Viola) Sonata op.120 and partly in his piano pieces op.119. I. Allegro maestoso
It may not seem significant to the audience, but to me, a mere 10 years old, it was a major breakthrough. I finally got the chance to spread the joy and love that I gained from this experience to the audience yet it was so nerve wrecking. As I took up my violin and touched the shrill E-string, I was immersed in the beauty of the music that awed me for years. The nervous thoughts just floated away and all that was in my mind was how to shape the music. The clear, sweet singing melody floated out from my three quarter-sized violin as my chubby fingers flew on the fingerboard.
This type of music mainly features the acoustic type of instruments although the modern performers have also incorporated drums and vocals. Klezmer is still observed as a reserve of the Jewish community that were often played in functions for ceremonial purposes for instance in weddings. Violin Violin is one of the key instruments that make klezmer music sound good and interesting to listen to almost all the time. Those playing this type of music capitalize on violin that is a stringed instrument to produce high expressive music. Klezmer initially intended to imitate human sounds like laughter and sobbing; violin is the best instrument that performs this task to its perfection.
