The Concerto

- The Concerto Since the Baroque era, the concerto has played a vital role in the music world. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a concerto is “a composition for one or more soloists and orchestra with three contrasting movements.” There are two main types: the concerto grosso and the classical concerto; both will be discussed later. While the term concerto is relatively easy to understand in context, when put into use the term becomes more complicated to define. The basic elements that make up a concerto include three movements with one movement usually dedicated for a solo instrument such as the piano or violin with orchestra accompaniment....   [tags: Music ]

Brasses-sion in Concerto!

- The interlacing of different sounds truly adds color, character and emotions in a piece. One cannot say that there is only one kind of sound produced by two different instruments playing the same note. This is exactly what makes music very unique and dynamic because each and every instrument possesses and produces its own distinct type of sound even while playing same notes. This intriguing phenomenon is explained by one of the elements of music, the timbre. It is true that the presence of the melody, rhythm and harmony of a piece is important but what makes the timbre stand out from all these elements is that it explores the different distinct tone quality of the different types of instrume...   [tags: Effects, Four Distinct Timbres]

Mozart 's Mozart, Concerto, And Sonatas

- Mozart The life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart may not be well-known as to his musical career. Mozart’s work portrays his ambition, loneliness, and perseverance throughout his life.

The Importance of Function Over Form in the Classical Concerto

- In the 18th century, the concerto was transformed into a viable instrumental genre to both demonstrate virtuosity as well as a cohesive character that embodied the natural. Though the series of changes from the Baroque concerto grosso to the Classical concerto were gradual and cannot be attributed to a single composer, the Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor K. 466 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a skillful representation of the genre in that era. Of particular interest in this concerto is the treatment of sonata form in the first movement....   [tags: Classical Music]

It is written for a large full orchestra with no set concertino group and involves more use of percussion instruments. Bartók uses short, narrow melodic phrases with a strong contrapuntal texture in places. He uses scales other than major and minor, and there is extreme chromaticism and virtuoso handling of a wide range of instruments, with specific and direct instructions for the playing of those instruments....   [tags: Papers]

Sofia Gubaidulina reflected, "The circumstances he lived under were unbearably cruel, more than anyone should have to endure."

- ... Zoe Rain has expanded her focuses of photography by taking portraits, cinematography, and videography during the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis tour (ZoeRain.Wix). Zoe Rain’s photographs have the four aspects covered and she’s amazing at action shots, which can be seen in some of her tour photos with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Her other shots are just as good action shots and have really strong contrast. The real relevance of Zoe Rain’s photos, I believe, is to show emotion and tell a story in just a single frame....   [tags: Concerts, Emotion, Camera]

Reflection of a Jazz Concert

- Attending for the first time at a jazz concert was a great experience; it was performed at the Wolfson Campus. The instruments that took part of it were the drums, piano, saxophone and bass.

The Success Of The Concert System

- Imperialism was the driving force behind European diplomacy in the Nineteenth Century. Peace, a major stated goal of the Concert of Europe, was pursued by the main players as a means of consolidating and securing their imperial gains and preventing further gains by rival states. The long stretches of peace celebrated as successes of the Concert system occurred simply because peace between the Great Powers was what the Great Powers desired. Later in the century, in the stretches leading up to the First World War, this celebrated peace was, as Pim den Boer put it, an “armed peace,” with many “consciously aiming at a great European war.” Under the Concert system, the First World War was not in...   [tags: British Empire, Colonialism, Napoleonic Wars]
