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.
Overall, the elements found within the tempo, tone, and melody made this piece my favorite. The sudden switch from fast-paced jazz to a slow, emotionally stirring composition strengthened the performance and gave the audience something to remember. My least favorite piece in the concert was “Lament” by J.J. Johnson. This piece was performed by the Harville Quartet and consisted of a trombone, guitar, bass, and drums. Similar to “God Bless the Child,” “Lament” was also an adagio tempo piece.
This suite, part of a series of four “overtures” (as Bach called them) represent experimenting by Bach, since they resemble a French style music used by Italian-born composer Jean-Baptiste Lully. Suite No. 3, which contains “Air on a G string”, is the most popular of all the overtures. The “Air on a G String” is the brief second movement of this suite.

The Rite of Spring is considered a piece that changed about everything there was to know about music. Igor Stravinsky’s methods of composing The Rite of Spring were previously unheard of. For example, the piece begins with a bassoon solo in its highest register (Ewen 788 “20th Century Music”). The solo is notorious because when played it sounds more like an oboe than a bassoon due to the way it was written. The solo has been noted to cause the famous
Beethoven had written a good half of his songs by 1811 and much before Schubert was even born. In their personal lives, they both had the strong support of their friends, and similarly, they were both unmarried. While Schubert was considered primarily a Romantic composer, he also was an important figure in Classical music similar to Beethoven. Although Schubert’s music was considered “subjectively emotional in the Romantic manner, poetically conceived, and revolutionary in language”, his music was cast in the “formal molds of the Classical school”. Beethoven’s music was heroic in tone while Schubert’s music was said to allow the “poetic work of art to shine through and illuminate”.
Going to see an orchestra play was an enjoyable experience. The music played by the Symphony of Winds and Percussion is definitely different than what I am used to hearing but nevertheless I liked it. Now I can listen to symphonies and not get bored by them because I know what I am listening to, and I wouldn’t mind going to see another symphony orchestra play again sometime in the near
Music is available in many different styles and flavors. Of course some styles are harder to produce than others. Different styles have different levels of complexity and emotion, each of which have a different effect on the state of a person’s brain and abilities. Classical, 18th century pianists such as Beethoven or Mozart would spend years composing music in an innovative, unparalleled in its time, way that could not be easily replicated. In fact, the smoother, more complex progressions classical pianist composed are known to sharpen the mind, increase focus, and encourage a more introspective train of thought.
The music then was not as energetic but it seemed strong because it had a full orchestra which told me that Frodo along with everyone else were ready for whatever was to come. Thirdly I want to talk about the background music during the fight scenes. Now the fight scenes were my favorite, not because it had a lot of sword fight but the music made it
