Sibelius 5th Symphony

Sibelius had had a tough life of being an alcoholic and having lived during the First World War Sibelius as a composer led his life "on two levels". Him being in- touch with the outside world were sparse because of the war, and financial pressures. Sibelius was planning for an entirely new kind of symphony. He would write multiple versions of the symphony before he was really satisfied with the result.
In the summer of 1914, just after the outbreak of the First World War, he wrote that he had got an idea for "a lovely theme". Then in the autumn of 1914 he wrote a prophecy to his friend Axel Carpelan: "Another depth of misery. But I can already make out the mountain that I shall ascend God is opening his doors for a moment, and his orchestra is playing the fifth symphony. “While Sibelius’s diary notes show that his mood during the fourth symphony was one of determination, the initial stages of the fifth symphony seemed to be filled with ecstasy. "The autumn sun is shining. Nature in its farewell colors. My heart is singing sadly – the shadows grow longer. The Adagio of my fifth symphony? That I, poor fellow that I am, can have moments of such richness!!" he wrote on 10th October 1914. And in November the sentiment grew even stronger: "I have a lovely theme. An adagio for the symphony – earth, worms and misery, fortissimo and sordinos [mutes], lots of sordinos. And the melodies are divine!!" In another diary entry (April 1915) Sibelius wrote: "In the evening, working on the symphony. This important task which strangely enchants me. As if God the Father had thrown down pieces of a mosaic from the floor of heaven and asked me to work out the pattern." Indeed, he produced a "mosaic" of drafts during the autumn and winter of 1914. But from such an assembly of material can we know which draft belonged to which movement, or even to which…...

Discuss Berlioz's Contribution to the Symphony

...Discuss Berlioz’s contribution to the symphony Berlioz is often overlooked as an influential composer; however the reality is that he was one of the most important due to his developing ideas of how orchestration could be expanded, how symphonic form could be developed and how music would be written in a programmatic style. Above all this, Berlioz was one of the pioneers of the Romantic period, inspiring through his innovation of ideas such as the ‘idée fix’ and as some saw it, his disregard for the ‘Viennese Architectural Legacy’ and ‘rules of composition’. The ‘idée fix’ was Berlioz’s most famous creation as it enabled him to take a more narrative approach to his composing. This was important as it contrasted from the strongly structured music that had come before him. The idée fixe is used to unify the disparate elements of the symphony in ‘Symphonie Fantastique’. Another talent Berlioz was gifted with was the art of orchestration. Although, it was not an advance that was received well at the time, it had an overarching effect of great significance. Berlioz demonstrated his talent in his first symphony, ‘Symphonie Fantastique’. This work was the first of four symphonies that Berlioz composed. ‘Symphonie Fantastique’ was composed in a programmatic format.  Berlioz may well have been the first great composer to not be able to play a musical instrument, nor to have shown any musical talent at an early age. But he persevered, and became interested in different ways to use......

Symphony Orchestra

...Professor Dewey Music 1306 Concert Critique #1 I have never been personally a fan of the romantic orchestra music but going to listen to a concert live is breathtaking. I attended the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra, Masterpieces concert with music director Fouad Fakhouri performing Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No.1 in D major. There was a full stage of musicians and a complete choir to back it up. The first half of the performance was a complete orchestra of woodwinds, strings, drums, brass, excreta and a four part choir. Overall the performance took no longer than thirty minutes to play the three-part Symphony of Psalms. This Symphony was much shorter than I was expecting. The symphony had the most soft and sweet chords following up with big, bold parts. The tempo would slow down just the slightest bit, the calm before the storm there was a bang of sound ringing from all around you and your almost startled but it is so lovely even at the volume and mixture of instruments you cant help but feel relaxed in the flow of notes. Stravinsky was born into a Russian Orthodox Church but soon left as a young man and though he was this origin he set a Latin text to his music, making it a more inclusive religious statement. Igor used the term “ Symphony” in the broadest sense, reflecting its etymology as the coming together of sounds, said to be why his orchestration is unusual. His melodies are stark and archaic, where he employs the......

5th Amendment

...5th amendment continued...... The government can't take agricultural property (branches, farms, barns) in California, for one person, and then sell to a private person. Founding fathers had in mind of eminent domain as in real property (land), and not other types of usages for eminent domain, like the attempt to take personal property. In CA, our supreme court they don't see a distinction between personal and real property from the standpoint of eminent domain. Examples: The CA decision came in connection with the Oakland raiders. The Oakland raiders were proposing to move to L.A, but the city of Oakland believed that the Raider's team was associated with the city of Oakland, and at the time it really was. Back In the 1970's and 80's when the raiders were winning games, you couldn't get a ticket to the stadium unless you had season ticket, they were that popular. The city of Oakland said, if we lose the Raiders then it's going to be a bad blow to the morale of the city. They proposed to take the Raiders from Al Davis (the owner of the Raiders) by eminent domain. Al didn't want to sell and it went to court, and the CA supreme court said "we don't see any problem, in theory, with personal property being taken by eminent domain,"; however, they didn't rule the issues on what the city of Oakland proposed to do. The city planned to buy the team from Davis, then sell to individuals who promised they would leave the team in Oakaland. They were going from one......

Utah Symphony and Opera

...The Utah Symphony and Utah Opera merger involves significant changes.  This analysis document is for Anne Ewers’ use.  Presented are potential solutions to five situations for which Ms. Ewers requested research.  These topics include motivation theories and suggestions of their use within the context of the merger, different types of power and how to use them strategically, potential conflict due to the merger, and utilizing influence to build additional support. One of the methods Mr. Bill Bailey can utilize to persuade the Utah Opera to support the merger is by using McClelland’s Need Theory, the need for affiliation.  This theory states that these individuals have a strong need to spend time continuing social relationships, belonging to groups, and wanting love (Kreitner and Kinicki, 2010, p 215).  The opera members will be able to build additional associations with individuals supporting additional art forms through additional interactions available with the symphony members.  This means that their social circle will expand to include members who support the symphonic arts, and the social relationship need will be met.  The opera will also belong to a bigger group of individuals by adding in the orchestra members, fulfilling the second need within the theory.  With the budgets combining, the opera will be part of a tier-one symphonic organization.  This can create an even larger social circle for the opera members, as there is a potential for a larger reach of interested...

5th Grade

...5th Grade Bites “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” exclaimed Dr. McCammon our school principal. “Don’t be mean to somebody unless you want them to treat you like that.” “The school-wide no bullying assembly didn’t last much longer than that.” I said to my mom as we were preparing to eat dinner. As we bustled around the kitchen singing and laughing, my mother said, “Listen to what they tell you. Be the good little daughter that I raised you to be. If someone is mean to you, turn the other cheek, be the bigger person. Please try not to get into fights at school, you don’t need those kinds of problems.” “I won’t I promise.” I reassured her as we sat down to eat. Tomorrow was my second day of school, I guess you can say first because today was a half day. I was really nervous, we had only introduced ourselves to our homeroom class and I didn’t know anybody. Sure the occasional familiar face from the past years but none of my friends were here with me. Last year was truly awful and I was praying, hoping, and wishing that my year would turn out to be good. As I lie down in my bed, I couldn’t stop thinking about how truly terrible 4th grade was. So many lies and betrayals. “This year will be different,” I reassure myself. “Treat others the way you want to be treated” kept floating through my mind. “Be good my little darling, be good.” My mothers words swarmed through my head like flies darting to the nearest source of water. The last thing I remember...
