The ranges of the instruments make the movement sound very magical, yet ominous. The flute for ... ... middle of paper ... ...piece dramatically changes into fortissimo and speeds up to allegro. In the third movement the piece is allegro and is forte, the entire movement seems to be a forte. In the fourth movement there was a soloist accompanied by the orchestra. This movement was adagio in the beginning and then sped up to allegro.
Then suite switched to vivace and it lost the danceable tune, yet was still nice. Then as the new section started, I felt like it was more adagio. Throughout the piece there was a common pattern: after each slow movement there was an upbeat movement that followed. The second piece was Rondo in D major by Wolfgang Mozart. It was in tonic and started in the key of D, went through five changes, and then ended in the key of G major.
When the tempo is speeding up, everything starts to crescendo and play at a forte level. When the tempo slows down, everything starts to diminuendo and play at a piano level. Throughout the piece some notes were staccato, but most notes were legato because they were smooth. Towards the end, two different lines are playing at the same time. People are singing while instruments are being played and both of them are very interesting to listen to.
The composition demonstrated a similar theme with each section, and I immediately noticed the reappearance of a theme. I truly appreciated the simplicity of the Li... ... middle of paper ... ...h faster and had a tempo of allegro. The very short notes in the violin part made it feel light feeling, and more dance-like than the three. The violin and piano played in unison together several times. I found this movement to be the hardest to follow of the three because I didn’t hear a recurring theme a lot.
It has a mixture of both medium and fast paced tempo with lots of harmonic tonal variations although the song. Both the piano and clarinet get to be incorporated in a way that gives the other percussion its identity without affecting the overall rhythm and melody of the song. The song does also have some considerable high pitch notes. For instance, the clarinet is used to denote the different points in the song where there is a change in the tone. Due the song’s pace variation and high tones, the piece does not elicit any bit of emotions.
2 in Eb Major is bright and cherry. The flute enhanced the melody. Sicilienne, the second movement, provides a drastic change in pace. It did this by coming in every two measure phrases while the harpsichord played. The flute carried the melody most of the time.
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.
I had the privilege of attending a Schola Cantorum concert this month at the University of Arkansas. The concert was wonderfully directed and performed very well. The choir is incredibly talented, they sounded wonderful! The concert featured accompaniment by a Baroque style organ that was built here in Arkansas. The organ is absolutely beautiful.
The first work was played was called Suite: 3 Airs, composed by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (1666-1729) from the Baroque period. This piece had a very stepwise and conjunct melody. The key was mostly bright and major. The harmony was a bit resolving and consonant. The polyphonic texture was recognizable because of the multiple melodies playing together.
Concert Report On November twenty-second, the concert that I attended was the APSU Wind Ensemble at the George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall. The conductors of this concert were Gregory Wolynec, Christopher Dyel (graduate) and Sarah Turner (graduate). I have been to numerous concerts but never like this. When I first got to the concert I expected to hear the first instrument in the wood wind section; the flute, but unfortunately I was in shock because the musicians begin with a bass sound; the trumpet. I also expected the performers to be on stage, but they were stationed on opposite sides of the hall playing toward one another.
