The Prologue for string orchestra is clearly the most serious piece on the orchestra, and it makes a nice finale. This performance of the Peanuts Gallery is a good one, thanks primarily to pianist Elizabeth Dorman who gets into the spirit of it very well. Conductor Lecce-Chong and the orchestra also do a great job on “Snoopy Does the Samba.” “Lucy Freaks Out,” however, isn’t as energetic as the performance by Jeffrey Biegel and Alexander Jiménez on Naxos. Both Henry Threadgill and Wadada Leo Smith, whose work I like quite a bit, have high praise for this system and claim it will help the improvising musician.

The connections between music and art that Kandinsky formulated, and others, in my opinion, can also be drawn between Aboriginal art and music, as they are similar. It’s said that the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was a painter of ‘sound and vision’. Looking at Kandinsky’s Colour Study’s, it’s clear that there is a strong connection to his works and many of the designs found in Aboriginal art. And another, Walter Pater said, “all art aspires to the condition of music”.
Many cultures have art music traditions; in the Western world the term typically refers to Western classical music.

There is also a small gallery space,Frontispace @ the Art Music Library, which houses rotating exhibitions. You can cancel the license within 14 days and receive a full refund if you haven’t yet downloaded any music or SFX. With that said, there must be something more to it, because of course music tastes have changed dramatically over time and will probably continue to change. So there must be something in people that also likes to be exposed to surprise as well as the familiar. Immanuel Kant (1724–1804) ranked music as lowest in his hierarchy of the arts. What he distrusted most about music was its wordlessness; he considered it useful for enjoyment but negligible in the service of culture.

Why do music and art move us?
Both are humanly engineered; both are conceptual and auditory, and these factors have been present in music of all styles and in all periods of history, throughout the world. Art music (alternatively called classical music, cultivated music, serious music, and canonic music) is music considered to be of high phonoaesthetic value. It typically implies advanced structural and theoretical considerations or a written musical tradition. In this context, the terms “serious” or “cultivated” are frequently used to present a contrast with ordinary, everyday music (i.e. popular and folk music, also called “vernacular music”).
Boethius (c. 480–524), was well suited to the needs of the church; the conservative aspects of that philosophy, with its fear of innovation, were conducive to the maintenance of order. The role of music as accessory to words is nowhere more clearly illustrated than in the history of Christianity, where the primacy of the text has always been emphasized and sometimes, as in Roman Catholic doctrine, made an article of faith. In the varieties of plainchant, melody was used for textual illumination; the configurations of sound took their cue from the words.
Then Witzel enters, bringing compositional order to the proceedings, and is again superb . Ho’s finest contribution to this album, however, is in his providing consistently swinging and appropriate bass lines in the left hand, supplanting the use of either a string or electric bassist. He’s so good at this that, at first, I re-read the album cover to make sure that there wasn’t a bassist in the group. And he keeps this up even when he himself is soloing with the right hand, showing that he is a fine musician if not a soloist on Witzel’s or Zinn’s level. This is a rather strange album, occupying a somewhat awkward spot between entertainment and art. Although most of these arrangements appear to be heads, Witzel and his talented group have a good read on each other’s musical ideas and bring them to fruition.
Music is an art that, in one guise or another, permeates every human society. Modern music is heard in a bewildering profusion of styles, many of them contemporary, others engendered in past eras. Music is a protean art; it lends itself easily to alliances with words, as in song, and with physical movement, as in dance.
The cello plays undulating, ambient figures to suggest a whale, then high held notes on the edge of its strings. This is as good a performance as the one by flautist Jan Krzeszowiec, pianist Malgorzata Zarębińska and cellist Marcin Misiak on the Dux label, and I think this recording even has more ambience around the instruments. After the 18th century, speculations upon the intrinsic nature of music became more numerous and profound. The elements necessary for a more comprehensive theory of its function and meaning became discernible. But philosophers whose views have been summarized thus far were not speaking as philosophers of music.
