  • Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra - 1,642 words
    founded in 1895, gave its first concert the following year under the direction of Frederic Archer. Victor Herbert was the chief conductor from 1898 to 1904; he was succeeded by Emil Paur (190410). The orchestra was then disbanded. It was revived in 1926, and over the next decade it was led by Elias Breeskin (192730) and Antonio Modarelli (193037). The orchestra was reorganized by Otto Klemperer in 1937. Fritz Reiner was chief conductor from 1938 to 1948, followed by William Steinberg (195276), Andr Previn (197684), Lorin Maazel (198495), and Mariss Jansons (1995). Since 1971 the orchestra has performed in Heinz Hall, the renovated Loews Penn Theater (built 1927). To truly understand Pittsbur ...

Soon thereafter every other city also sprouted its musical organization. Philadelphia, Cincinatti, St. Louis, San Francisco, and other communities as they attained a modicum of wealth and leisure attracted German and French immigrants to perform in the orchestras. Further development of the American orchestra should be attributed to visiting tours of European great orchestras. Germania Orchestra, having gained initial and greatest success in Boston responded to a demand from cities as far west as Beethoven and played Beethoven to sold out audiences. Members of this ...

  • Sugars Symphony - 985 words
    Some have coined music as a universal language. Perhaps, the complexity of the notes, the consistency of the beat, the array of instruments, or the flow of lyricism offers this universal appeal. Nevertheless, the unique composition of each song enables it to sustain its own magnetic aura, much like the musical implication in Lewis Nordans Music of the Swamp. Though, many argue Nordans piece suggests merely a collection of short stories rather than a novel, Nordan uses his singsong methodology- a novel-in-stories- to incorporate an anthology of his transformative memory- an autobiography of the way it was. By examining the structure of Music of the Swamp, it can be broken into a series of sho ...

  • Wind Symphony - 368 words
    The Wind Symphony preformed on Monday, October 11 at 8:00 p.m. at the Walton Arts Center in Baum-Walker Hall. The performance lasted one hour and thirty minuets and consisted of six pieces. The first piece was Variations for Wind Band by Ralph Vaughn Williams. All the instruments tuned to the oboe then they started the English piece. The Bass and symbols came in first and was very loud. The song reminded me of the movie ''Raiders of the Lost Ark.'' The feeling was mysterious and I liked it. The second piece was "Chester" Overture for Band by William Schuman. This American song moved very fast with a lot of clarinet and flute for the melody. I liked this song because it was patriotic. The thi ...

  • A Technical Essay On The Composition Techniques Used In Sibelius Symphony 2 - 882 words
    The second symphony written by composer Jean Sibelius {1865-1957} is one of the best examples in classical music of advanced compositional techniques such as melodic variation, tonal transitions, imitation, and suspension. Written in basic four-movement form (Allegretto, Tempo Andante/ma rubato, Vivacissimo, and Finale), Symphony #2 provides the listener with a fluidity of motion, which constantly engages the ear. The first movement in Sibelius Symphony #2 is written in the key of D major, uses A-B-A form, sets the tonal foundation for the rest of the symphony by incorporating sub-dominant and dominant chord progressions, and demonstrates ingenious suspension and transition techniques. The m ...

  • Ludwig Van Beethoven - 481 words
    I. Education in general and in music Beethoven came from a musical family, and his early musical training was under his father's guidance. His father taught him piano and violin. His general education was not continued beyond the elementary school. He was practically illiterate in math. As a youth of 19, in 1789, Beethoven took legal steps to have himself placed at the head of his family. He petitioned for half his father's salary to support his brothers. This act of self-assertion is an indication of his character. On one of Haydn's trips to London, he met the young Beethoven. Beethoven showed Haydn a cantata and he received Haydn's commendation. The Elector of Bonn paid for Beethoven's les ...

    ... wig Van Beethoven The rise of Ludwig van Beethoven into the ranks of history's greatest composers was paralleled by and in some ways a consequence of his own personal tragedy and despair. Beginning in the late 1790's, the increasing buzzing and humming in his ears sent Beethoven into a panic, searching for a cure from doctor to doctor. By October 1802 he had written the Heiligenstadt Testament confessing the certainty of his growing deafness, his consequent despair, and suicidal considerations. Yet, despite the personal tragedy caused by the "infirmity in the one sense which ought to be more perfect in [him] than in others, a sense which [he] once possessed in the highest perfection, a p ...

  • Russian Romantic Music And Tchaikovsky - 1,576 words
    Russian Romantic Music and Tchaikovsky Russian music bears its own styles and emotions, free from the outside influence of other European countries during the Romantic period. Politics play an indirect role in the development of Russian music, isolating the country both politically and musically. Until the Decembrist revolt in 1825, Russia was under the unrelenting rule of czars. Russia retained the ways of the old -- its caste system, its severity of censorship -- while the rest of Europe had already shed its Middle Age characteristics. Since the revolt, it had become fashionable for the educated public to promote social reform. Political activity in Russia was a dangerous game, likely to l ...

In the same year, Tchaikovsky met Mily Balakirev, who had succeeded Anton Rubenstein as head of the Conservatory at St. Petersburg. Unfortunately, Balakirev was driven out from his post because his opponents had despised his controversial ideas. He settled in Moscow, where he met Tchaikovsky. He suggested to Pyotr that he should compose an overture-fantasy on the theme of Romeo and Juliet. Not only did Balakirev fuel the idea, but he also sketched the outline of the work and supervised its composition ...

  • Hemingways Writing Style - 1,637 words
    Hemingway's style left a deep imprint on the landscape of prose In the years after the First World War, the Young Man Who Lived and Loved Hard and Wrote Well revolutionized American literature. His prose was a symphony of short, strong, sonorous sentences. His heroes were men broken by the world but left "strong at the broken places." His women were both strong and weak, and they were always very beautiful in their summer dresses. The Young Man Who Lived and Loved Hard and Wrote Well lied out of his mouth and told the truth out of his typewriter. He defined courage better than any writer ever had before. But he died a coward's death by his own hand, his brains and blood staining the foyer of ...

    Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer considered being one of the greatest of all times. He was born in Bonn, Germany.

  • Fixing A Bittersweet Creep - 1,061 words
    Music has played an important role in the daily lives of people everywhere and perhaps the most influential music has come from British artists. The Beatles faced a problem when, John Lennon innocently stated that The Beatles were, in fact, more popular than Jesus. In the song "Fixing a Hole", The Beatles sing about the problem with the media. The song "Creep", by Radiohead, deals with a personal problem. It illustrates the writers frustration, and inner turmoil with his life in a negative, self-hating way. The third song, "Bittersweet Symphony", by The Verve, is written in a way that explores the writer's inability to change his life. He sings a negative spin on life, and has written this s ...

  • Beethoven - 446 words
    Ludwig van Beethoven was one of the world's most famous composers. He was born in 1770 and died in 1827. He was born December 16, 1770 in Bonn Germany. His early musical talent was subjected to the discipline of his father a singer in the court chapel. His father was an alcoholic and so the young Beethoven began supporting his family as a court musician. He studied under several famous composers - Christian Neefe, and Austrian Joseph Haydn. He would have studied under Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but Mozart died just before he could travel to Vienna to study under this master. In Vienna Beethoven dazzled the rich with his piano improvisations. His musical style often challenged the "norms" of th ...

It must be kept in mind that this was a difficult time period of life, with my grandmother being sick and my girlfriend trying to pressure me into many things including marriage.
