I was just wondering where you all think music will be headed in the future. For me, it's kind of hard to tell what type will be the dominating force, if any. There seems to be a rise of covers and mashups as well as simply in the a cappella domain. What do you all think?
I've fund myself, over the past few weeks to be obsessed with Mozart's works and haven't been able to uncover what inspired him to make some of the most beautiful and inspirational music of all time.
If anyone has to the answer to the inspirations of works such as Piano Concerto No. 2, please leave a comment; I'd be interested in learning.
"The Planets", by Gustav Holst, is a seven movement orchestral suite where each piece corresponds to a planet's astrological characteristics. Every planet is accounted for, excluding earth.
This is one of my favorite Pieces, What is your take on the piece ?
The Firebird is a ballet based on Russian folk tales of the magical glowing bird of the same name that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor. This piece started Stravinskys career and promoted him in the world theater. I personally think that this is his greatest piece. What is your favorite of Igor Stravinsky ?
A composers Main goal is to reach out to an audience and have there music heard, in most cases. I know for a fact, my face lights up when someone comments on a piece of mine and says that it is Awesome!"
Why do you guys write ?
Is it for the love of writing? Is it to express a feeling? To satisfy your ego?
I can personally tell you that, for me, It's all the above and then some.
The Fifth Symphony had a long gestation. The first sketches date from 1804 following the completion of the Third Symphony. However, Beethoven repeatedly interrupted his work on the Fifth to prepare other compositions, including the first version of Fidelio, the Appassionata piano sonata, the three Razumovsky string quartets, the Violin Concerto, the Fourth Piano Concerto, the Fourth Symphony, and the Mass in C. The final preparation of the Fifth Symphony, which took place in 1807–1808, was carried out in parallel with the Sixth Symphony, which premiered at the same concert.
Beethoven was in his mid-thirties during this time; his personal life was troubled by increasing deafness. In the world at large, the period was marked by the Napoleonic Wars, political turmoil in Austria, and the occupation of Vienna by Napoleon's troops in 1805.
Could all these reasons lead to one of the most well know pieces of Classical Music and form the basis of what we now know today as music ???
Hi all !
My name is Wandrille, I'm 15, and I'm organist. Found of J.S. Bach and baroque music, I have got a challenge: upload all the arrangement of Bach's organ works, and maybe more, like cantatas, pieces of the Well Tempered Clavier, etc. If you are interested in all those works, you can have a look at my dashboard and I would be pleased if you decide to follow me.
Thank you very much for your attention, and god bless you all !
