This concerto was performed by pianist Luiza Borac, violinist Conrad Chow and Adelya Shagidullina, and Cellist Kian Soltani. The last piece was Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Opus 44. What I discovered about my own musical understanding by attending this concert is the following thing. I know how to appreciate and to enjoy music that is a little bit familiar, but my understanding stops when a very new type of music is performed. I made a conclusion from this experience.
He was the inventor of the string quartets and the father of symphony, two important genres of the Classical period. He created the sonata form which has been echoed by other great composers including Mozart and Beethoven. His wide variety of music from happy dancing to somber funeral music was greatly appreciated by the public and the nobles earning him a honorary degree from Oxford as Doctor of Music. Unlike Mozart or Beethoven, when Haydn died he was not forgotten. Two weeks after his death, “the whole art-loving world of Vienna';, went to a great memorial service at the city center in honor of the greatest composer of the Classical period.
Visually, the conductor was animated just enough and I felt his movements furthered the music in a sense, like you could see and hear the music and the elation that the movement carries. Before attending the concert, I looked up what made Beethoven’s 9th orchestra so incredible, and many sources told me to wait for the surprise ending, that included vocalists and a choral. The variations of “Ode to Joy” were magnificently played by the double basses and the cellos. When the bass solo began, I knew I was in for a treat, and once Ms. Nagy the soprano began to sing I felt such amazement, the notes she could hit were unbelievably high and she sung them effortlessly and beautifully. I believe the fourth and final movement was in sonata form.
78 (1886) and Vincent d’Indy’s Symphony on a French Mountain Air (Symphonie Cevenole) op. 25 (1886) The keyboard instruments have been largely associated with solo repertoire since its genesis. While rarely used in the orchestra, a keyboard instrument can be an effective tool to add colours to a Symphony. As orchestration principally affects the richness of the music and consequently the effect of a Symphony, conscientious use of the keyboard instruments is mandatory. This essay aims to discuss three Romantic symphonies that exploit the keyboard instruments’ versatility, sonority and its ability to take on the role of an orchestral instrument, respectively.
The beginning to the final movement was as though Mozart knew his audience needed to change of mood, because it began with a bright and sunny theme the solo piano and its orchestra joined in Unisom in a joyous and invigorating dynamic sound. There was a long piano solo that Uchida again mastered beautifully. Then the coda began with the full orchestra that brought the movement to a triumph end.

4 are connected and played without a pause, but still are performed thematically. The three motives ties the symphony together, overall creating one of the most beautiful introductions and Romanze that depicts an alluring atmosphere, and ends with a mesmerizing finale, making the listener’s feelings waver between fascination and wonder.

“Mozart for Four Mozart: String Quartet in F Major, K 590 Mozart: Piano Quartet No. 1 in G Minor, K 478 Performed by the Orion String Quartet and the Nash Ensemble” (gardnermuseum.org) For the purposes of this assignment I choose this particular concert because I find Mozart’s music to be intellectual and engaging, requiring deep concentration and an open mind to be able the comprehend the depth of his musical visions. In this paper a will attempt to explore the qualities I like and dislike in the pieces presented in this concert and endeavor to analyze the “Piano Quartet No. 1 in G Minor, K 478”. I thoroughly enjoyed this concert from beginning to end.
She moved with the music and it really brought out the emotion in her playing. At the end, she ended the piece with a very visual lift off and the crowd went wild. Overall, this concert was worth going to. The orchestra played very well and it displayed two amazing artists from different regions of the spectrum coming together to make this concert stupendous. I would definitely like to hear more of Gerard Schwarz’s conducting and Ms. Astanova’s piano playing.
Recall that the audience had a widely distributed age variance from undergraduate students to senior citizens. I also said that classical music composed by Beethoven was modernized to fit 21st century expectations and it was combined with an appropriate outdoor atmosphere (despite it being muddy). Lastly, the emotional response I felt was that it made me acknowledge that music originally composed for a particular instrument can be morphed to fit the tonality of a different instrument. I consider that very creative and intriguing. Overall, I recommend this concert to my peers where UCI performers play variations of Beethoven musical pieces using string instruments and do so in a lively manner.
Throughout the concert I would have considered myself as a referential listener, as I am for most things. Certain pieces and sounds played throughout the concert reminded me of certain things in my environment like the music played in eerie movies or even the music my teachers play during exams and silent reading. The concert began with Harold Warman presenting the Choir and Orchestra. Following that Mr. Warman stated that the Choir would be performing first because people need to learn ... ... middle of paper ... ...ting to see the orchestras. The musicians were very talented, as they performed a variety of songs.
