Music during the Elizabethan Era is extraordinarily different than it is now. The Elizabethan Era was during the time of Queen Elizabeth I 's reign. During the Elizabethan Era music was used for many things just like it is today. Music was also an important form of entertainment during this time. Music during the Elizabethan Era had several composers, used many instruments, styles, and is different compared today 's music.
“Music is the universal language of mankind.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The ‘Witch and the Saint’ was originally composed for orchestra by Steven Reineke. It was later on arranged for concert bands by the American arranger Matt Conaway. I chose the ‘Witch and the Saint’ because it assembles many interesting and different factors that the music we hear nowadays doesn't have. For example at the very beginning there is a very special element that we don’t usually hear which is the church bells. This piece is filled with different expressions and dynamics, for instance in the first few phrases the feel of these measures are funereal and sad, whereas in the end of the piece we hear the brass section creating feelings of anger and rage. Additionally,
This composition creates a mind-blowing effect where a person looking at the left hand side of the painting will at first see a large bridge stretching across an cloudy ocean while a person on the right will see a procession of ships sailing away from a normal bridge, and a person taking in the big picture from the middle will observe both of
Because music is a form of art, people can express the same theme or idea in divergent ways. One can first see references to music in religious texts dating back thousands of years ago. A Kyrie is a musical depiction of a prayer and means "Lord have mercy". They are very simple and often have the same words repeated at a slightly different pitch. These female composers lived very different lives and yet have both contributed to the growth of female artist. When analyzing Hildegard von Bingen 's Kyrie which was written in the early 1,000s and Libby Larsen 's Kyrie which was written from 1991-1992, one can see many similarities considering they were written hundreds of years apart.
David Foster Wallace’s short story Incarnations of Burned Children describes the scene of a child being burned alive with boiling water that was incidentally dropped by his mother. The mother and father are referred to as “Mommy” and “Daddy”, and the sentences run on time and time again. This gives the idea of a child-like narrator, and increases the sense of innocence that is so often correlated with children. Strongly emotional, it shows the reactions of the mother and father to a drastic event, and the ongoing agonizing screams of the afflicted child. In the end, I personally don’t know for sure what happened, but it appears that the story suggests the child died on the way to the emergency room. A very emotional, depressing piece, this piece appears to present no true
Though Richard Wagner is primarily known for his orchestral works, many of his piece have made their way into the wind band repertoire. Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral is a piece that takes place in the opera Lohengrin. In this scene, Elsa is in the midst of getting married to an unknown knight that has saved her from being accused
The painting shows a human figure, screaming in despair. The man depicted in the sky. which is a blood-scarlet. Also generalized landscape background in present. Red, fiery hot sky covered with cold fjord, which in turn creates a fantastic shade, similar to a kind of sea monster. Voltage destroyed space, the line broke, the colours do not match, the prospect is destroyed. The unviability of the flat is only a bridge, which are characters of the film. He contrasted the chaos in which the world is immersed. Bridge- barrier separating man from nature. Protected civilization, people have forgotten how to feel, watch and hear. Two indifferent characters at the background, did not react to what is happening around, but underscore the tragedy of the story.
The Venus and the Lute Player was created by Tiziano Vecelli(o), also referred to as Titian. This piece of art was created on a canvas using oil circa 1565-1570. The artwork was made in a style similar to that of a portrait. The background is portrayed as a nature scene with only the left half of it exposed. The middle ground is composed of a red curtain which creates the division between the background and the foreground.
Melinda Sordino started ninth grade just as afraid and alone as I did. At an End-of-the-Summer party, Melinda was raped by a football player from Merryweather, her new high school. She immediately called the cops to report the crime, however the kneejerk reaction of the underage drinkers occupying the houseparty silenced her and chased her away. Consequently, Melinda’s best friends from middle school abandoned her; no one wanted to be associated with the squealer. Her parents were distant and never took the time to understand the sudden change in Melinda’s demeanor. She fought hard to keep the darkness in: bloodying her lips with her teeth and nails to stay quiet. In the midst of Melinda’s battle to come to terms with her assault, she found
Close your eyes, imagine that you are isolated from society, not from choice but because everybody else has dictated that you are an outcast of society and should not be an important part of society, you do not matter, your life is terrible. What if you and other people who have been isolated by society gathered and created forms of entertainment that helped and the people that you have met to get through the hard times and unites all of the people who are being isolated too. Now open your eyes, this is the start of the Harlem Renaissance. Renaissance means rebirth from french, this is a rebirth because it gave a new life for the African Americans. The Harlem Renaissance was sparked because of the terrible conditions that the African-Americans were lived in and worked in mainly the
The concert I attended, with my sister and friend, was held at FAU’s beautifully quaint University Theater. The room was only half full with student, professors, and various other adults. The Fifth House Ensemble performed three different “acts”. The first was a few different comedic opera songs about “Employees Wash Hands”, “Cascading Water”, and “Lipstick”. These songs were comicial with a refreshing twist. Megan Ihnen was the solo singer throughout the pieces. The second act was a concerto featuring three soloists. A Pianist, Cello player, and flutist. before they began the cellist introduced herself and told a little about the song. As she told us about the songs, she related it to her eighteen-month year old son, who is curiously learning
The Music For Strings, Percussion, and Celeste written by Bartok, is theoretically unique and composed in a very different way. This piece is in four movements, Bartok intentionally makes the first and third movements slow, and the second and fourth fast.The first movement is a slow fugue, with a time signature that changes abruptly. The piece was written without a key signature, and is instead centered around the note A (the tonal center), which the movement begins and ends on. The fugue is based on a chromatic four phrase theme, which includes no interval greater than a third. It all starts on muted strings, beginning with the violas and as all the other voices
St Ambrose University Fall Vocal Concert included performances by the University Chorale, Chamber Singers and Bee Sharp conducted by Dr. Nathan Windt. The Fall Vocal Concert was held in the Galvin Fine Arts Center. My favorite University Chorale piece was the Stars as it was an a cappella performance by tuned wine glass players. I liked how the Chamber Singers tied the Halloween theme into their performances, as it was late October at the time. Once again the vocal concert was made up of a broad range of students with different backgrounds and educational goals.
The American art scene is home is to a compilation of skilled artists. One such artist was Thomas Kinkade. He was highly regarded for the treatment of light in his works, earning him the title Painter of Light. However, he had many more styles of painting. Under the brush name Robert Girrard, Kinkade painted a collection of pieces that distinguished themselves from his signature look, yet still had a “Kinkade” touch. These difference and similarities can clearly be seen when comparing and contrasting his works September Song and The Autumn Gate.
Dr. Sheri Neill introduces herself and explains that she has different degrees in music and education from Texas Tech University, Stephan F. Austin University, and University of Missouri. Then she introduces Cheryl Lemmons, which is the pianist that was sitting at the piano located right front of the stage. There was a choir that was located center stage with the conductor directly in front of them. The choir consist of only women, which seemed to be alto and soprano singers. They began with their first piece “Wir Eilen Mit Schwachen, Doch Emsigen Schritten” written by S.J Bach. The song starts with the piano playing a nice melody as an introduction, which has a steady beat as well as steady tempo. Then the sopranos began singing softly with the altos following behind imitating and singing the words with a lower pitch. The piece seemed mostly polyphonic, yet there are many times when it is homophonic and
