Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed an exemplary piece of classical music that can be seen in television and films of the twenty-first century. Mozart would hear a complete piece in his head before he would write it down. He created pieces that had simple melodies, but also the orchestration sounded rich. Out of the forty-one symphonies Mozart composed, I have chosen Mozart’s Symphony No.
You will hear the very interesting tune in the music; it sounds weird that mixing up a Classical music and Hip-Hop music; however, those two total different pieces of music are uncomfortably matched. As you see, the influence of Mozart is huge to the musicians of all time. In this paper, I will explore about the influential gifted composer, W... ... middle of paper ... ...thor couldn’t be found (Website-Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART - the music of Mozart), Paragraph under the topic “INFLUENCE”). Also, one of the Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.3 in C Minor is clearly a tribute to Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24 in C Minor. Beethoven is also well known for his massive influence to other composers and music, therefore, if Mozart had not existed in the world, Beethoven would not be able to be who he actual was, and , naturally, the other great composers who were influenced by Beethoven would not be neither.
Mozart also added to the symphony by contrasting memorable lyric themes in full sounding orchestral settings. “The elements in the formation of the early classical style are in short, periodic, articulated phrase. Articulated, periodic phrasing brought about two fundamental alterations in the nature of the eighteenth-century music: one was a heightened, sensitivity to symmetry, and the second was a rhythmic texture of great variety, with the different rhythms not contrasted or super-imposed, but passing logically and easily into each other” (Rosen 58). The classical characteristics didn’t appear one by one, but at different times during this important period in history. The classical era, with the progress of the classical music, at times was, irregular.
Mozart had such a true love of classical music, it could clearly be seen in his work. Some of his more famous works are The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, and Requiem Mass. The sheer quality of his music and the fact that a lot of it was done at such a young age, is what made drove Mozart into the spotlight. When I hear Mozart, there is one piece that comes to mind. Eine kleine Nachtmusik is such an uplifting, enlightening piece.
Mozart had a profound effect on Beethoven’s musical style and innovation. Beethoven’s life was filled with inspirations of Mozart. Mozart was a prominent and illustrious individual of Beethoven’s time. Beethoven stated, “I have always counted myself amongst the greatest admirers of Mozart and I shall remain so until my last breath” (superbclassicalmusic). Beethoven never intended on becoming serious with his music until he heard the wondrous works of Mozart and his colleague, Joseph Haydn.
The piece begins with a solo and consists of much more choral and instrumental material. In the whole piece, Mozart relies on the orchestra to provide life to the text and mostly uses the strings and woodwinds to present this piece, while relying on the percussions and the timpani to provide effect for forceful motions. Overall, influence can be noticed from artists such as Bach and Handel. This piece, even though left unfinished made a mark in history as one of the most beautiful pieces ever written during the Baroque/Classical era.
I was impressed by the range of the pieces that were performed as they were from 18th century classical symphony arrangements to contemporary techno pieces. However, the pieces that moved me most were Mozart’s Molto Allegro, Oaken Sky by Chris Rogerson and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. In hindsight, I am surprised that the two pieces from the Classical Era had such an impact on me. Perhaps, “classical” pieces were what I expected to hear at a Symphony.
This impairment reshaped his music. This led the way to a very tense and exciting side of his pieces. Beethoven's music differs with Mozart's in that is more intense and has a greater range of pitch and dynamics. Beethoven's greatest pieces are his symphonies, which can be heard today as often as in his days. Beethoven was a very good innovator with his variations to music.
Beethoven was very known between the Classical and Romantic Era in Western Classical Music. Beethoven is known as a great composer who had a unique method of composing music as a result of overcoming many obstacles in his life. Beethoven was born on December 16,1770 to Maria Magdalena Keverich and Johann van Beethoven. Beethoven was fortunate to be in a musical family where his grandfather and father was a musician. Beethoven’s
Mozart completed this work in Vienna on March 24th, 1786. He was experiencing the peak of his creativity and was also working on many other major pieces like Le nozzed di Figaro, piano concertos K482 in E flat major and K 488 in A major. Concerto no.24 is very different from no.22 and no.23. The 2 piano concertos in major keys met the expectations of traditional concertos. The first movement of concerto no.24’s distinctiveness was balanced by the second movement’s simplicity (E flat major).
