It shows how he struggled while he was alive to earn for his family and profit off of his music. Like so many great artists of his time, he only was able to gain fame and fortune posthumous. You see a role that his family may have played in not only helping but also hindering in his writing of music. And most importantly it shows off his expertise in the understanding of music, one point in the movie depicting Mozart writing an entire symphony in his head. The movie showed the Classical Spirit typical to that commonly associated with late 1700’s Europe.
This performance consisted of a violin, a cello, and a piano. Oh my goodness! Where do I start with this performance? This was the most amazing performance of the night. The melody, the harmony, the crescendo, and decrescendo were perfectly played.
Franz was like Mozart in that he was somewhat of a child prodigy. He showed remarkable talent with the piano as well as in sight reading music. Franz had a turning point in his career when at nineteen he came across the great violinist Paganini. Paganini would bedazzle audiences with his abilities on the violin. Franz vowed then, and there to be the pianist version of Paganini.
He composed many brilliant music works such as Bolero, Piano concert for the left hand and so on. Compare to other famous musician such as Franz Schubert who had a lot of completed relationships with other women, Ravel was not famous for his personal life, and seldom people knew his intimate relationships. He remained a mystery of his personal life. I wonder what his real life in 1923 and how he could compose so much innovative music. After a while, I decided to have a meeting with Ravel because I was really curious about the piece he composed called Le Tombeau de Couperin which was completed in 1914.
Vivaldi’s orchestra in the Bassoon concerto consisted of a bassoon, Violin 1 and 2, Viola, Cello, and Bass. ******** Composer Beethoven was born in Germany. He was an innovator, widening the scope of sonata, symphony, concerto and quartet, and combining vocals and instruments in a new way. His personal life was marked by a struggle against deafness, and
Robert Subjenski Professor Elisabeth Swanson Music of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Monday, March 5th George Crumb’s Music and Contributions George Crumb was born in Charleston, on October 24th 1929. With his parents already being well accomplished musicians, he was interested in music from a very early age. He credits being involved in domestic music-making as a child as an important reason for him having such a passion for classical and romantic music later on in life. George Crumb studied music at many colleges and universities, most notably Mason College and the University of Michigan.
As Mr. Holland discovers, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”, and as the years unfold the joy of sharing his contagious passion for music with his students becomes his new definition of success. During his 31 years as a high school music teacher, Mr. Holland encounters many obstacles, one of which was the birth of his deaf son, Cole Holland. Mr. Holland, whose world revolves around his love of music, feels he can't connect with his son if his son can't hear music. He uses his music to hide from facing the reality of the situation with his son and other issues in his life. The experiences he has because of his music, guide him to a place of understanding towards the end of his career about his life and his son--this is his opus or greatest work.
That just goes to show that music is a huge part of me and a part of my life. The whole thing got very frustrating after a while. My mind was all over the place because I was trying to think of other things to do besides listen to music. I never realized how much music was apart of my life until I had to actually cut it out; I also asked a few of my friends how they would feel if they had to take music out of their lives for a certain amount of time and they pretty much looked at me like I was crazy. That just affirms that music has a huge impact on the world and the people in it.
A few composers who made music today possible by struggling through the aftermath of the Black Death epidemic would be; Jasquin Des Prez, (who was a big name at the time,) Pierre De La Rue, a very well proclaimed vocalist (The New York Time Company 2012, March 23. Top 8 Renaissance Composers Retrieved from http://classicalmusic.about.com.) One such composer whose name is still heard pretty often would be Johann Sebastian Bach; he is considered as one of the faces of classical music. Like all of us, he started out with baby steps, slowly learning the ways of music. Bach came from a family of musicians who brought him into the whole scene; his father was a director and had several uncles who were musicians (Christoph Wolff, Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician (New York: W.W. Norton and Company, Inc., 2000.)
Sonata form mainly focuses on the harmonic and thematic expression of music that sets the mood in the exposition. The development is contrasted and elaborated, and usually resolved with a safe sound of harmony in the end, recapitulating the main ideas. Among all of the examples we have heard in class like Mozart’s Symphony 25, or the Moonlight Sonata, I believe that Ludwig Van Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 represents sonata form with the most accuracy. The exposition of Symphony No.
