As Mozart grew older he wrote more musical pieces. He wrote these pieces not to be played with childish skill, but with seriousness and delicateness. Mozart’s music had evolved into an overarching style. In this innovation mode, one could listen to Mozart’s music and it would,supposedly raise one’s IQ (“Mozart vs Beethoven”). With the innovation that Mozart added to his music, it changed how concerts were organized.
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.
Vivaldi’s deft coordination of melody and harmony was much admired by Johann Sebastian Bach who absorbed the Italian style through his study and transcription of his concertos and trio-sonatas. This influence is particularly apparent in Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. Other distinctive elements of Vivaldi's style included a fluid alternation of major and minor tonalities, a highly progressive use of dissonance and rich harmonies, and an innate melodic gift particularly in slow movements. His vocal music has been criticized for perfunctory text-setting and violinist vocal writing, but there are examples of great skill and inspiration in this genre such as his Gloria or Magnificat and his virtuosic and highly expressive motets for solo voice. Vivaldi was unquestionably a master orchestrator who explored the idiomatic potential of the many instruments for which he wrote.
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.
With the six pieces of Opus 33, Haydn established a style of chamber music that he described as being in "an entirely new, very special manner" (Pauly, 45). At the same time, it had also been nearly 10 years since Mozart had written for the string quartet. Mozart met Haydn in Vienna, and heard the quartets of Opus 33. He "regarded these quartets of Haydn with special reverence and was moved to write six of his own" (Crocker, 393). It is clear that Haydn had a strong influence on the composition of these works.
Among the many musical types of the period, the classical period is best known for the symphony, a form of a large orchestral ensemble. The symphonic pieces generally had three movements, the sonata, the minuet and the finale. Building of the achievements of earlier composers, Haydn, and Mozart brought the symphony to its peak in the last twenty years of the 18th century. Haydn excelled in rhythmic drive and development of theme-based music. Mozart also added to the symphony by contrasting memorable lyric themes in full sounding orchestral settings.
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.
I. Haydn Haydn has a special preference for writing music in a bundle of six. Each of the six pieces has its individuality while sharing many common features at the same time. Haydn’s solo keyboard sonatas show striking diversity in type and style. They often could be categorized by their style periods and each of them reflects a corresponding social background. Sonatas composed from 1773 to 1784 were intended as “public” works from the very beginning, with a clear conception of the taste, preferences, and instruments available to the musical public of Vienna.
Mozart truly wrote an opera that almost performs itself. I feel that if a person can sing the notes , then most of the point has gotten across. If the singer is boring , the listener can still understand the character through his or her melodic line or the rhythmic patterns of the part. Overall , Mozart composed the perfect music for each character.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven are very famous past composers that have created many pieces that have influenced not just people of their time, but people in modern times as well. Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 was his last and longest symphony he composed. While listening to this breathtaking piece of music, one specific aspect of this piece stood out to me; this being the instrumentation. In this symphony, many different instruments were used.
