As in some of her other works, too, Zwilich throws in some clear jazz references—here, at least, in the earlier jazz-classical style of Gershwin, only a bit more modal. She also provides excellent contrasts between the cellist’s lines and the orchestra. For the most part they are on the same page , but there are some wonderful moments in which they play opposing figures that complement one another. Near the end of the first movement, Bailey plays a note that is slightly “warped” in sound which gives the music an unusual feel.
- There is very little concept of vocal or instrumental idiom in the Western sense.
- I once knew a composer who very much liked performances of Mozart’s Symphonies that were unexciting but texturally clear because she enjoyed being able to hear the structure of the piece without interference from an individual interpretation, but I’m fussy.
- The purpose of this book is to inspire both instrumentalists and composers to look at musical elements in new ways.
- If he had wanted to do a song from Porgy and Bess, I wish he had chosen “It Ain’t Necessarily So” which is the best piece in the whole opera.
Schools and universities use the music/art connection to enhance student learning. There are music and art classes and training camps for students across the world. The Australian Chamber Orchestra has a series of video lessons designed to help students understand how music works. The ACO has one on how abstract art and shapes are depicted in music.

Matthew just responded to this subtle change of sound physics of the new mouthpiece and further advanced our already highly ever-evolving symbiotic musical relationship. The Flute Concerto No. 1, evidently written to comply with the Soviets’ demand for accessible music, is an unusually chipper piece for him at this stage of his life , but chipper it is. Coming on the CD between the Seventh and Third symphonies, it acts as a sort of upbeat emotional buffer. Gražinytė-Tyla’s performance, along with flautist Marie-Christine Zupancic, is appropriately upbeat. There is little or no angst here, but how can you make a flute express sadness and despair? The opening of the last movement is wholly unique, sounding like a phone ringing that is not answered before going into soft, moving figures in the violins.
We see them as catalysts to build Labs, Exhibitions, and Festivals as momentums for the better. We’ve managed to teach ourselves how to express ideas through written words, as well as emotions through art and music. Through our art and music, the emotion felt by an artist may be encoded through color, shadow and harmony to be decoded and experienced by an observer or listener. By consciously focusing on art and music together, we can create new art forms.
