“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.
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.
In classical music, there are more changes of the dynamics. Furthermore, composers got rid of the harpsichord because there was no variation of dynamics. On the other hand, pianos were more effective because the composer could play around with the dynamics. For example, at (4:15), the pianist can play high and low notes. The soloist and the orchestra interaction presented the many tone colors Mozart composed into this piece.
It was probably my favorite piece played in this concert. The changing if tempos really made you pay more attention and it wasn't slow or boring. The sonata forms allowed the musicians to perform more difficult parts from the pieces and it was very entertaining to observe. This piece also ... ... middle of paper ... ...ext and final movement was the finale. This movement brought back themes from the first movement and the third movement and gave the piece a feeling of ending.
Just tell me what happened, how it affected you, how this experience will influence your plans for future concert attendance? I am particularly moved by a report that helps me to relive the concert or one that makes me sorry that I missed it. This essay does just that. The University Symphony Orchestra conducted by I. M. Conductor and featuring Young Virtuoso on piano performed in Freeborn Hall on December 3, 2004. Included in the program were works by the German twentieth-century composer Paul Hindemith and the German romantic composer Johannes Brahms.
The concerts allowed me to broaden my knowledge of music and learn more about how chamber music sounds. I moved along with the music I heard, and I thought about the works as I listened to them. I saw the musicians move as they played, and I know most musicians think about how they are going to play. Classical music may be losing the younger audiences, but it is still as great as it used to be when these pieces where played for royalty. Thought and movement are reactions to classical music which is why it’s an art form, and we should continue to support it because it is growing as composers write new pieces for the modern day instruments.
During the performance, I seen the audience were moving with the music, but I felt like that everyone seems knows more music than what I learned throughout this semester. After I went home and did some of the research on these music I finally understand why these people like to attend the orchestra concerto, it was because that every piece of music has a history behind it. The Los Angeles audience seemed to me to be people who know music and who will listen to something new in a respectful way. All the same, when the more familiar sounds of the last piece were heard, I could feel a little sense of relaxation and fun coming into the room.
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.
Of course, the trend of music has been changing all the time. Classical music, compared with modern pop music, is really different than the last one. However, great music are still listened by people; therefore, it does not matter when they were composed neither who composed them. Classical music is one of the categories that is old, but people still enjoy to listen to it. The ones of the famous great Classical music composers, Ludwig van Beethoven who is well known for his deafness and work which is Choral: Symphony No.9, Frederic Chopin for Minute Waltz, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, and Peter Tchaikovsky are influenced by one Classical music composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Whether the rumors of Beethoven being abused were false claims or not, he still enjoyed music very much and put his talent to use at its full potential. His brother, Carl, said it was their luck for Ludwig and even the entire family that Beethoven had the talent he did. Eventually, using his talent for work started to bring income to the household. It was just fortunate for them because they began running low on the family inheritance Prince Maximillian Franz had heard of Beethoven and his music, so he sent Beethoven to Vienna, in 1787, to meet Mozart and further his musical education. During the time, Vienna was the capital of music.
