I find it to be a good move on Haydn`s part, providing what approaches the ear as added happiness. The sound of the piano with the orchestra seems to make it seem somehow more alive and vibrant than it would with orchestra alone. The melody is, of course, in Haydn`s usual cheerful style, intended to bring entertainment and pleasant emotions. The orchestral opening has a sort of climax with a fugue, that repeats later in the movement in modified form; I always love fugues! The second movement, andante, opens with a fluid piano solo introducing the theme quietly.
It was in tonic and started in the key of D, went through five changes, and then ended in the key of G major. The music is almost like a child’s tune, and light. Childlike because the music had a happy lite timbre. The texture moves from vivace (not in the sense it moves fast, but it is a lively tune) to moderato momentarily and back to vivace. Also while the tempo is changing, the dynamics start to change, moving from mezzo forte to mezzo piano and back again.
This went on in a series of decrescendos, rising and falling with lots of chords being played. The third piece was a duet for the flute and the oboe by Julia Grace Brown. The piece contained two movements, but I could not tell when one stopped and the second began because there was no pause. While they played the flute was quicker, playing in short, fast, high pitched notes. On the other hand, the oboe was steadier and carried the notes slightly longer, and it lead the flute through the song.
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 main theme reappears in the end in an even darker manner. From the drama, expressive language to the grand gesture, this particular Fantasy reminds me of Beethoven in various ways. As a major art form in the era, Mozart’s piano sonatas presented “models of fluency”. They revealed both the composer’s and the player’s musical virtuosity and clarity.
Each variation consisted of the same basic tune, with certain things altered, such as: instruments, tempo, style, and sometimes even mode. Each variation offered something new and exciting, showcasing the violins beauty in the upper register, the cellos power in the mid and low ranges, and the violas versatile range. My favorite variations were 7, 16, and 21. In variation 7, the feel of the song changes from slow and sweet instrumental beauty, to a bright and cheery, almost bouncy tune. The violin and the cello played this variation at the concert, and they played it flawlessly.
I made a conclusion from this experience. My conclusion is that learning about music will increase the pleasure of listening to music, but that musical learning is not, perhaps, as easy as learning subjects like Math or History. I will begin my description of the music that I heard at the LACMA concert with the work that I liked best. This was the new discovery from Kinderszenen’s Ahnung, the composer of this piece was Robert Schumann, U.S. Premiere performed by the pianist Luiza Borac.
The play it was played, and how beautifully it sounded, it was like nothing I’ve hear before. In this orchestra I noticed that most violinist were mostly women. I think that this was because women have more sensitivity, which seemed necessary to play the i... ... middle of paper ... ...rs where the violins, viola, cello, flutes, bassoon, French horns and timpani played a bigger role. I’m not saying that this piano concerto was horrible but I just didn’t enjoy as much the piano’s performance in those two movements. It might have been the pianist interpretation, and exercise of improvisation.
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.
During the music I notice a lot of mimicking going on between the strings. It was rather enjoyable. The tempo of the piece was allegro because it was fast, quick. The meter of this piece was fast 4 beats per meter like you said .The beginning of the piece had some dark moment. But ... ... middle of paper ... ...ng a little more boring but I was gladly shocked that it was actually not boring.
