On the other hand, the oboe was steadier and carried the notes slightly longer, and it lead the flute through the song. Sometimes the two instruments played simultaneously, and sometimes the flute would mimic the oboe and follow it through the movement. Overall, the piece started out fast and eventually slowed with the two instruments ending together, but the flute always played in a higher range with a more piercing ... ... middle of paper ... ..., intensity, and length. The entire movement had a feeling of rising to a maximum point which could not be surpassed. In the third movement the flute and the piano played together and played nearly the same thing, with the exception of the flutes higher notes.
It sounds like there is a base line that goes on throughout the piece, and it sounds like it is played with a tuba. Also, as the piece reaches the end there is a cacophony of different instruments which leaves a person feeling that there was meant to be more, but when in fact there was not. This Jazzalogue was played exceptionally by the student band. The second piece played was a Symphony in B-flat by Paul Hindemith. This piece begins with a cacophony of sounds and is fortissimo like the first piece.
This heroic and inspirational story is certainly exhibited throughout the piece. It begins with a blast of excitement and grander. The fanfare motive is carried out in the high brass through most of the piece, highlighting the powerful and motivating tradition that baseball has created. Suddenly, a particularly odd and interesting clarinet solo rises above the rest of the ensemble. The noticeably dissimilar melody created by the clarinet creates slight tension when pitted against the fanfare melody of the high brass; however, the clarinet is slowly joined by other woodwinds until they finally come together with the brass in a beautiful harmony that pushes forward to the valiant end.
The tonality alternates between major and minor continually. The strings play an arpeggio melody, in major, as the oboe plays a descending chromatic scale with a diminuendo and perfect cadence Dance: The large percussion section, with timpani and snare rolls opens this section, along with the woodwind. The flute plays an atonal allegretto melody, accompanied by a rhythmic ostinato by the percussion section. There is a crescendo as more instruments join the accompaniment and the strings take over the melody. The music climaxes with the brass playing the melody, still accompanied by the ostinato and the triangle.
The coda, which is the funeral music for Romeo and Juliet, begins with a long pedal note, with the timpani playing a heartbeat style rhythm, and then the strings enter with minor legato melody. The flute then plays a slow melody, accompanied by the strings. The music accelerates, and the oboe joins the flute. The harp plays ascending scales, and then the whole orchestra joins the accompaniment, as the strings take over the melody, with the flute and oboe playing a countermelody. There is a modulation to major, then a timpani roll whilst the orchestra plays chords on the beat, and the piece ends with a perfect cadence.
It has a soft melody. The third movement starts off with the same melody from the 2nd movement but a couple minutes later the melody changes to a different higher tone and harmony. It's starts to get faster and sharper. There's like a rhythm in the middle section of the music. Then you hear more the violins play in a high and fast pitch.
The texture of Brandenberg Concerto #2 in F: Movement 1 Allegro overall is polyphonic with energy. A polyphonic texture encompasses two or more melodies that are played at the same time. The overall texture of the first movement is high and light, almost airy sounding. Some of the instruments have separate textures, such as the trumpet, which has an assertive, high, lively texture heard over the other instruments. In fact, in Brandenberg Concerto #2 in F: Movement 1 Allegro, the trumpet score is easily picked out and is considered one of the most challenging scores for a trumpet player.
The crescendo builds up to a perfect cadence with the timpani crashing. Finale The brass plays an ascending sequence, followed by pizzicato notes played by the strings, and an ascending and descending scale on the harp. Strings and oboe play the rhythmic melody, whilst the trumpet plays fanfares in syncopation. The oboe is then replaced by the flute. There is an ascending scale played by the strings, then the brass section repeats the string and oboe melody with cymbal crashes at cadence points.
The Requiem is set in D minor giving it a modal feel. The orchestra consists of and scored for two basset horns in F, two trumpets in D, two bassoons, three trombones , timpani consisting of two drums , violins, viola and basso continuo(cello, double bass, and organ). The vocal forces include soprano, contralto, tenor, and bass soloists and an SATB mixed choir. All of these constitute together to form the famous orchestral piece. In this piece there are suggestions of orchestral innovations of the classical era.
The dominant is briefly embellished before it cadences to the median chord and quiets down a little. A string instrument plucks a ‘G’ and a new melody is introduced. It cadences to the original dominant and then everything repeated, but small differences hear and there.
