The #1 Musical Experience

Works of classical repertoire often exhibit complexity in their use of orchestration, counterpoint, harmony, musical development, rhythm, phrasing, texture, and form. Whereas most popular styles are usually written in song form, classical music is noted for its development of highly sophisticated instrumental musical forms, like the concerto, symphony and sonata. Classical music is also noted for its use of sophisticated vocal/instrumental forms, such as opera. In opera, vocal soloists and choirs perform staged dramatic works with an orchestra providing accompaniment.Longer instrumental works are often divided into self-contained pieces, called movements, often with contrasting characters or moods. For instance, symphonies written during the Classical period are usually divided into four movements:( 1) An opening Allegro in sonata form, a slow movement,a minuet or scherzo (in a triple metre, such as 34), and a final Allegro.These movements can then be further broken down into a hierarchy of smaller units: first sections, then periods, and finally phrases.Performers who have studied classical music extensively are said to be "classically trained". This training may come from private lessons from instrument or voice teachers or from completion of a formal program offered by a Conservatory, college or university, such as a Bachelor of Music or Master of Music degree (which includes individual lessons from professors). In classical music, "...extensive formal music education and training, often to postgraduate [Master's degree] level" is required.Performance of classical music repertoire requires a proficiency in sight-reading and ensemble playing, harmonic principles, strong ear training (to correct and adjust pitches by ear), knowledge of performance practice (e.g., Baroque ornamentation), and a familiarity with the style/musical idiom expected for a given composer or musical work (e.g., a Brahms symphony or a Mozart concerto).The key characteristic of European classical music that distinguishes it from popular music and folk music is that the repertoire tends to be written down in musical notation, creating a musical part or score. This score typically determines details of rhythm, pitch, and, where two or more musicians (whether singers or instrumentalists) are involved, how the various parts are coordinated. The written quality of the music has enabled a high level of complexity within them: fugues, for instance, achieve a remarkable marriage of boldly distinctive melodic lines weaving in counterpoint yet creating a coherent harmonic logic.The use of written notation also preserves a record of the works and enables Classical musicians to perform music from many centuries ago.Although Classical music in the 2000s has lost most of its tradition for musical improvisation, from the Baroque era to the Romantic era, there are examples of performers who could improvise in the style of their era. In the Baroque era, organ performers would improvise preludes, keyboard performers playing harpsichord would improvise chords from the figured bass symbols beneath the bass notes of the basso continuo part and both vocal and instrumental performers would improvise musical ornaments.Johann Sebastian Bach was particularly noted for his complex improvisations. During the Classical era, the composer-performer Mozart was noted for his ability to improvise melodies in different styles. During the Classical era, some virtuoso soloists would improvise the cadenza sections of a concerto. During the Romantic era, Beethoven would improvise at the piano.classical music ,classical music news ,classicalmusicworldusic youtube ,classical music composers ,classical music radio ,music history ,classicalmusic lover ,classicalmusicblog ,classical music downloads ,classical music concerts ,classical music for babies ,classical music for studying ,classical music for kids ,classical music online ,classical music of...

Jazz Love-Romantic
As jazz spread around the world, it drew on national, regional, and local musical cultures, which gave rise to different styles. New Orleans jazz began in the early 1910s, combining earlier brass band marches, French quadrilles, biguine, ragtime and blues with collective polyphonic improvisation. But jazz did not begin as a single musical tradition in New Orleans or elsewhere. In the 1930s, arranged dance-oriented swing big bands, Kansas City jazz (a hard-swinging, bluesy, improvisational style), and gypsy jazz (a style that emphasized musette waltzes) were the prominent styles. Bebop emerged in the 1940s, shifting jazz from danceable popular music toward a more challenging "musician's music" which was played at faster tempos and used more chord-based improvisation. Cool jazz developed near the end of the 1940s, introducing calmer, smoother sounds and long, linear melodic lines. Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast.

Schubert String Quintet, D. 956The String Quintet in C major, D. 956 - and often referred to as Op. posth. 163- was Franz Schubert's final chamber work. It is a cello quintet, in the sense that it is scored for a standard string quartet lineup plus an additional cello -with the viola being by far the most common choice. The work has been described as a chamber music masterpiece, and since its public performance in 1850 and its publication in 1853, it has gained status as one of Schubert's finest works.

Mozart Requiem in D minor,
Requiem in D minor, K. 626 - VI. Benedictus Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart started composing the Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626) in Vienna in 1791, following an anonymous commision from Count Franz von Walsegg, who requested the piece to commemorate the anniversary of his wife's death. Mozart passed away on December of 1791, however, having finished and orchestrated only one movement. The Requiem is widely considered one of Mozart's greatest works, and its composition process is surrounded a shroud of mistery and myths, usually attributed to Mozart's wife Constanze, who had to keep secret the fact that Mozart hadn't completed the work in order to be able to collect the final payment from the commision. It is commonly accepted that Mozart finished the Introitus, and left detailed sketches of the Kyrie and Dies Irae all the way to the first eight bars of the Lacrimosa and parts of the Offertory. There are now several completions of the Requiem Mass, though the most common by far (considered the standard version of the piece) is the one by Franz Xaver Süssmayr. He not only completed the movements Mozart left (borrowing an unespecified amount from Joseph von Eybler's previous attemps at completing the work) but also added several movements of his own: Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. He then added a final section, Lux aeterna by adapting the opening two movements which Mozart had written to the different words which finish the Requiem Mass. The myth surrounding this work was increased by the fictional rivarly between Mozart and Antonio Salieri first expressed in 'Mozart and Salieri', a play by Alexander Pushkin, which in turn inspired an opera by Rismky Korsakov of the same name, the inmensely popular 1979 play 'Amadeus', by Peter Shaffer, and it's 1984 film adaptation by Miloš Forman. The Requiem is scored for 2 basset horns in F, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets in D, 3 trombones (alto, tenor & bass), timpani (2 drums), violins, viola, and basso continuo (cello, double bass, and organ). The vocal forces include soprano, contralto, tenor, bass soloists, and an SATB mixed choir. Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

The Great Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, is an organ prelude and fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach. It acquired that name to distinguish it from the earlier Little Fugue in G minor, which is shorter. This piece is not to be confused with the Prelude and Fugue in A minor, which is also for organ and also sometimes called the Great. It was transcribed for piano by Franz Liszt as S.463.

1812 Overture
Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture, Op. 499The Year 1812 (festival overture in E♭ major, Op. 49), also known as 1812 Overture, is an orchestral work by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky commemorating the unsuccessful French invasion into Russia, and the subsequent devastating withdrawal of Napoleon's Grande Armée, an event that marked 1812 as the major turning point of the Napoleonic Wars. The work is best known for the sequence of cannon fire, which is sometimes performed, especially at outside festivals, using live cannons. When performed indoors, orchestras may use computer generated cannon sounds or huge barrel drums. Although the composition has no historical connection with the America-Britain War of 1812, it is often performed in the US alongside other patriotic music. The overture debuted in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow on August 20, 1882. Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Bach St. Matthew's Passion, BWV 244Johann Sebastian BachChoir and OrchestraSt. Matthew's Passion, BWV 244The St. Matthew's Passion (Matthäus-Passion), BWV 244 is a sacred oratorio by J.S. Bach, written in 1727 for solo voices, double choir and double orchestra, with libretto by picander. It sets chapters 26 and 27 of the Gospel of Matthew (in Luther's German translation) to music, with chorales and arias. One of the masterpieces of Western Music, its original latin title is Passio Domini Nostri J.C. Secundum Evangelistam Matthaeum. Bach revised the work in 1736 and included two organs, and revised it again on 1742 for a new performance, switching (probably due to practical motives) the second organ to harpsichord, adding a viola to the continuo group in Chorus II and inserting a ripieno soprano in both.

Bunch a Banjos on Broadway= Phillip Frederick “Freddy Morgan” Morgenstern
American banjo musician, comedian, actor, songwriter and entertainer who gained fame as a featured member of the Spike Jones Band from 1947 to 1958. Born in New York City and raised in Cleveland Ohio, he went by "Freddy" since childhood. At age of 9, he began playing the ukulele after recovering from a serious accident. He studied banjo with Eddie Connors and at the age of 14, then teamed up with a school mate and fellow banjo enthusiast named Leo Livingston. The pair billed themselves as Morgan and Stone, and struck out for Broadway where they met with success. Morgan and Stone went on a 36-week nationwide tour, then traveled Europe and played the vaudeville circuit. Next, he teamed up with Australian banjoist Wally Hadley to form Morgan and Hadly from which a few recordings were produced in England.At the outbreak of WWII, he was stranded in Europe, and helped found the European Theater Artists Group, a forerunner to the United Service Organization (USO) to entertain troops abroad. When the war ended, Morgan auditioned for Spike Jones by telephone, spending 35 minutes barking like a dog and imitating Edward G. Robinson during the effort. For 11 years, he performed as a featured banjo player for Spike Jones, bringing laughter to audiences with his bowl haircut, his goofy grin and his absolute comedic personality.Morgan was always a first-rate player whose spirited performances contributed to a rise in banjo popularity over his lifetime. By the mid to late 1950's, he began branching out, first forming a banjo troup called the Sunnysiders which produced a hit record in 1955 called "Hey, Mr. Banjo", a nickname that stuck with him thereafter in show billings and musical references. A solo recording for Verve records came out in 1957 with his iconic mug gracing the cover. His final year with the City Slickers was in 1958.He was perpetually busy entertaining in clubs, fairs and concerts to his very last day, a Christmas time performance for veterans at the Oak Knoll Veterans Hospital in Oakland, California, when a heart attack ended his life during his performance.

Giuseppe Verdi - Falstaff - 3
Verdi's last opera, Falstaff, was his first comic opera in over 50 years. Verdi and his librettist, Boito, kept the composition secret since Verdi was somewhat less comfortable with comic opera, and he wanted to have the option of canceling the production—even after the dress rehearsal. Boito's libretto has its basis in Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor with additional material from Henry VI, parts 1 and 2. The premiere at the Teatro alla Scala was a triumph, but, as always, Verdi continued to make adjustments to the score for both the Rome and Paris premieres; these changes were incorporated into the final version of the score.

Bach- French Suite no. 6, BWV 817
The French Suites, BWV 812–817, are six suites which Johann Sebastian Bach wrote for keyboard between 1722-25. Although suites 1–4 are typically dated to 1722, it is possible that the first was written somewhat earlier. They were later given the name French. Likewise, the English Suites received a later appellation. The name was popularised by Bach's biographer Johann Nikolaus Forkel, who mentioned they were written in the French style. This, however, is inaccurate: like Bach's other suites, they follow a largely Italian convention. There is no surviving definitive manuscript of these suites, and ornamentation varies both in type and in degree across manuscripts. Some of the manuscripts that have come down to us are titled "Suites Pour Le Clavecin", which is what probably lead to the tradition of calling them "French" Suites.

The Trio in E flat, Op. 38 is a 1805 arrangement of the earlier Septet in E flat, Op. 20 by Ludwig van Beethoven. The original piece, completed in 1800, was scored for clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass. This version was rewritten for clarinet (or violin), cello, and piano. The overall layout of the work resembles a serenade, closely mimicking Mozart's K. 563 trio, but enjoying substantial additions. Conductor Arturo Toscanini rearranged the string section of the Septet so that it could be played by the full string section of the orchestra, but he did not change the rest of the scoring.

Beethoven was in his mid-thirties: his personal life was troubled by increasing deafness. In the world at large, the period was marked by the Napoleonic Wars. The symphony soon acquired status as a central item in the repertoire: groundbreaking in terms of both technical and emotional impact, it had a large influence on composers and music critics, and inspired work by such composers as Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Bruckner, Mahler, and Berlioz.

Frédéric Chopin- Ballade no. 1 in G minor, Op. 23
Frédéric Chopin wrote his Ballade no. 1 in G minor, Op. 23, in 1831. During those years he had taken residence in Vienna, and as the war between his native land and the Russian Empire grew longer so did his music become increasingly dramatic, a reflection of his feelings of loneliness and alienation. The Ballade no. 1 wasn't published until Chopin moved to Paris, where he dedicated it to Baron Nathaniel von Stockhausen. Chopin may be said to be the creator of the Ballade as a distinct genre, inspiring many musicians (such as Liszt and Brahms) to write their own Ballades. Though the pieces seem to be entirely different between them, analysts have shown that the Ballades share a number of traits, like a mirror reexposition (where the order of the first and second themes are inverted), and the so called ballade meter (a 6/8 or 6/4 meter). The Ballade no. 1 in G minor is one of the more popular Chopin pieces. being prominently featured in the 2002 Roman Polanski film The Pianist. Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast.

Piano Sonata no. 14 in C#m 'Moonlight', Op. 27 no. 2 - Complete Performance
The Moonlight Sonata no. 14, Op. 27, no. 2, was completed in 1801 and dedicated to 17-year-old Countess Guicciardi, with whom Beethoven was, or had been in love. The nickname Moonlight derives from an 1832 description of the first movement by poet Ludwig Rellstab, who compared it to moonlight shining upon Lake Lucerne. Beethoven included the phrase Quasi una fantasia in the title (as well as in the other sonata of Op. 27) partly because the work does not follow the traditional sonata pattern where the first movement is in regular sonata form, and where the three or four movements are arranged in a fast-slow-[fast]-fast sequence.
