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.
On Thursday, 1 December 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in David Geffen Hall the New York Philharmonic performed four pieces. Bernard Langevin conducted the New York Philharmonic. Ying Fang was the special debut at the concert. On Saturday, 3 December 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in Carnegie Hall the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra performed four pieces. The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra did not have an official conductor, but they had special pianist Fazil Say (b.
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.
Premiere performed by the pianist Luiza Borac. This piece was first beginning with the repeating chords accompanied with the soft moderato me... ... middle of paper ... ...xcited to have this experience. Part of the drama of the concert at first is felt when the musicians come in and sit down and begin tuning up their instruments. I would not be able to comment on the performance of the orchestra. 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.
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.
The use of different composers in it gave the listener the ability to hear the different style used. For example, Mozart’s piece was dramatic were as Debussy was flowing and dance like. Each piece also had excellent examples of how when the composers changed the texture and dynamics, it made the song very interesting. I was not a fan of classical music, but this solo recital helped me see the errors in my ways. Everyone should have to hear at least one classical concert in their life in order to appreciate the complex use of chords and melodies.
I believe that the second movement was played in the key of A minor because the piece was a little “energetic” but mainly deep sounding and contained a lot of lower sounding notes. I am guessing the movement was in double variation form because I heard a main melody at first with the violins and violas but then the melody shifts to the deeper instruments. All in all, the movement was performed very well. The way the orchestra handled two melodies was pretty unique and it was the highlight of the
While the absence of a double exposition clears doubts of the symphony being a concerto, it is hard to overlook the dialogues between the orchestra and the piano, which are typical of the concerto form. Upon close study of the music, one will notice that the movement is dominated by the orchestra rather than the piano and as elucidated by Brown in a table (Figure 1), the “different orchestra/piano relationships are used to underline the different and changing functions” (Brown, 2007, 460), resulting in an intriguing movement.
This piece was a good example of non-imitative polyphony because the clarinet and violin were playing melodies of their own. To complete the piece, the clarinet trailed off leaving the audience uneasy. The second piece the ensemble performed was the Marxville Songbook, which was composed by Jeffrey Stadelman.
The range of the piece was narrow and the contour was static. He explained that there would be a guitar like sound in the piece that is called strumming. He also said that the piece has a romantic melody. The piece started off fast and then it started to slow down towards the end. I enjoyed this piece because it makes you want to dance because of how upbeat it
