Krate Digga is committed to improving quality of lives using music as a vehicle specifically through the prism of Hip Hop culture. Whether teaching middle school or at the collegiate level, opening for Grandmaster Flash or presenting his own stage production; it is music and the power therein that’s allowed Krate to serve as a conduit for artistic & community development. Others in psychology and other fields have asserted that both music and art are separate from other innate forms of communication.

- Comparing her performance here of the Third to Thor Svedlund with the Gothenberg Symphony, for instance, one hears very similar tempi but completely different phrasing.
- A futuristic mixture between jazz and eastern notations achieves a spacey feeling to play with from dawn to dusk.
- Ms. Information, another Witzel original, is not as fine a composition as the previous two, the melody line being vague and unmemorable, but again the solos are excellent.
- Here, the harpsichord plays rambling, circular figures, busy music that basically goes nowhere.
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”).
Faculty also maintain active relationships with academic institutions and arts and heritage organizations around the world, and they frequently bring internationally renowned scholars and industry professionals to campus to work directly with students. Art & Music Histories offers courses covering global histories of art, architecture, and music from antiquity to the present day. Our programs are structured in a way that enables you to explore the histories of art, architecture, and/or music while also gaining hands-on experience in curatorial work, studio art, and music performance or production. In short, this is a highly entertaining piece if not a terribly deep one, but Zwilich’s sure grasp of the musical elements involved make it work. The third movement opens with light, high strings, almost like the Act I Prelude to Lohengrin, before moving on to a few comments from the soloist.
Scopel Plays Almeida Prados Nocturnes
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.
We both have classical music backgrounds and have a completely open mind about how to organically deal with classical and jazz language in one piece as if it comes out of the same matrix. There is no question, however, that this is a virtuoso ensemble, or that Bychkov draws the very best out of them. He knows this music as well as anyone and, thankfully, has his own ideas on pacing and phrasing, all of which work very well.
This Southwest based Pop-Rock duo takes their exhilarating style and energy to the heights in this captivating set of tracks. Drawing deeply from their extensive experience in the EDM and Pop-Punk scenes, they deliver a fresh take on the style as an Electronic band. Tyler Fiore and Ryan Alexander are both award-winning songwriters and artists and together have created the lively music of Toxic Hearts. This may also explain why some early 20th-century art music does not immediately appeal to the popular Western ear. Many of the composers of this period avoided traditional Western harmonic organization and embraced a modal style that avoids the predictability of major and minor scales. As this music does not follow the typical rules of Western musical styles and requires effort on the part of the listener, it can be difficult for the general public to appreciate.
Zwilich’s well-known combination of tonal, melodic music with modes and modern harmonies tossed in for flavor are clearly on display here, but so too is Zuill Bailey’s cello. In fact, except for his second recording of the Bach Cello Suites, issued a few months ago, I can’t recall hearing any other recording by him that so perfectly captures his gorgeous, manicured tone. In fact, judging just by those two recordings, I would go out on a limb and say that his tone has actually grown in richness and depth of sound. He used to sound like Emanuel Feuermann; he now sounds like Mstislav Rostropovich.
He does not play it safe; he jumps into the fire feet first, exploring extended chord positions and somehow landing on notes you’d never expect, giving one the thrill of hearing a master improviser in his element. At the beginning of the 20th century, art music was divided into “serious music” and “light music”. During the second half of the century, there was a large-scale trend in American culture toward blurring the boundaries between art and pop music.
We acknowledge that the historical relationship to the land and territories of these peoples continues to this day. When not performing, Gregory is boldly exploring compositional ideas on piano and drums, following world events, running around Mt. Tolmie, taking Arrow and Oblio on walks, and helping Justine in the garden. Scrap Arts Music is a unique Canadian project honoured to receive invitations to perform across North America and around the world for audiences from all walks of life. Having already recorded Mieczysław Weinberg’s symphonies Nos. 2 & 21 three years ago for Deutsche Grammophon, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla here presents the Third and Seventh Symphonies along with the Flute Concerto No. 1. Although all have already been recorded by others, there are clear indications to me that, if finished, this is going to be the Weinberg Symphony set. Although Russian conductor Semyon Bychkov is considered one of the finest Mahler conductors of the post-Klaus Tennstedt era, he has only recently begun recording his symphonies.
