The movement continues with trio cast scherzo, thus turning into humorous bounces and assumed martial drive. One could say that because of this the music is kind of “Perky” for some reason. Andantino Quasi Allegretto of the third movement opens with a somehow kind of a dialogue among the strings that in gradual, faint degrees that introduces the rest of orchestra; for example could be taken from its wind that enter by quietly doubling the string so that their presence is realized almost only after the fact. A vocally that’s flowing, concentrated “wedge” figures introduces more rhapsodic and expansive part, characterized by beating harmony and frequent parallel motion in the instrument that provides a shown part of medievalism. A quiet
Emmaneul Mensah Caitlin O’Neil Music 150 3 – 31 – 2010 Midsemester Paper The performance by Lowell Lieberman Concerto for Clarinet, orchestra, and the Beethoven Emperor Concerto by Jon Nakamatsu, piano soloist was quite a spectacular performance. Both performances were very entertaining and professional as well. In the commencement of the show, I was anticipating seeing some kind of unexciting show, but as the show progressed, I found it to be very interesting through their interaction with the audience. I became very attentive to each performance they displaced and often found myself drawn in by their performance. Both musical performers incorporated unique musical elements such as melody, harmony rhythm to mention a few.
The first group started off the right foot with an interpretation of the Rocky Theme Song. The members of the band used instruments like trumpets, saxophones, trombones, piano, drums, flugelhorns, and clarinets. Throughout the song different members of the band would switch off doing impressive solos, however my favorite was one of the trumpet solos that was performed by Ian Martinez, he truly stole everyone’s attention with his energy and apparent love for his part in the song. The ensemble played many songs I enjoyed, and was excited to hear a rendition of an old classic by Count Basie. The second ensemble and the first ensemble were similar in style, but the second ensemble used considerably less solos and played with an electric guitarist.
After intermission, the students from the Magnet School played eleven short songs under the direction of their instructors Rebecca Markowski and Jennifer Hutchison, along with the accompaniment of the Delta Orchestra musicians. The performances were very enjoyable to me. The Delta Symphony opened with “Olympic Fanfare and Theme” by John Williams. I enjoyed this song because it was recognizable to me and I was surprised by this because I had not thought that I would recognize any songs at this concert. This song was very loud and powerful.
His music flows easily and one could glide across the room so smoothly. When one listen to this piece the waltz comes to mind. The one thing that is not so likeable is his cathedral music because it so sad and the tone is just bland. However, at the age of fourteen he copied a choral piece of the Sistine Chapel and the pope was so impressed with Mozart that he knighted him. The features about Mozart’s music is his passionate about his music and it brings ease, grace, spontaneity and at the same time creates balance, restraint and has perfect proportions.
Unlike typical chamber music, the violin and cello shared equal parts in Duo for Violin and Cello (1932). The piece overall, as the Parnas sisters explained prior to playing, has remnants of Asian texture and tonality and is very dynamic and rhythmically driven. This became very clear in the first movement. As a member of the audience I was captivated. The movement sounded almost violent and rugged while being played allegretto.
So I was very interested in hearing how they were going to prepare for this. And just like the entire show, I was very moved. The girl hit the perfect notes, and had a very sincere clam soothing voice. The song was enjoying to listen, and was very interesting how that song that was complete different genre could be made into a jazz song. I always loved and had a fascination for the trumpets, even though I cannot play; I always found it the best.
I’m a dancer who likes to dance to any music that I can easily make up choreography to. Whenever I always listen to music I tend to create a dance in my mind out of the song I am listening to. Honestly I really can't sum my life up only on one page but I’ll do my best. I love to laugh and have a good time, I'm usually smiling and if I’m not, most likely something’s wrong. I laugh over the littlest and stupidest things.
Mallory and I went to this concert together, and when we saw that this song was being played we got very excited. We were excited simply because we could translate the name, which meant the day that I love. This was also the first piece that the cello came out, and the confusing part was that she sat between the second violinist and the violist. Overall, I really enjoyed this piece, because it was a much more exciting piece that the first. The third piece performed was called Libertango.
The music was generally fast and the sound was very brassy to me. The purpose of the songs they were playing seem to be expressing a mood to me, as if the audience should be very awake and alert. It was not calming at all but I'm not sure it was supposed to be! I would say that the overall unifying principle of the entire concert is the range in melody. The choir put a spin on the way I ever looked at lyrics but the melody that they created was both high and low, they just stayed in harmony even when they weren't all singing at one and it was guys vs girls.
