Notes on Listening Guides March 22, 2016 #20—Mozart; translated “a little night music,” written to be played at social gatherings, strings only #23—Beethoven; the ﬁrst four notes are the most recognizable in all of music, it is a symphony so we should expect an orchestra to be playing this piece. German composer in both Classical/ Romantic period. He is a transitional composer #22—Beethoven; nicknamed the moonlight sonata— when he was almost completely deaf, he had to have a personal assistant who took care of his business. They walked past a small house and assistant told him there was someone inside who was playing his music so they stopped to see who it was. The assistant didn’t introduce Beethoven and eventually he ended up giving the girl who was playing a lesson. The girl was blind and Beethoven was so moved that he was ﬁlled with melancholy. The two of them left and the moon had come up and Beethoven went home and wrote this sonata. He was expressing his feelings through music, something romantic composers do. This is a piano solo. —Op. stands for opus, meaning a work or number. #24—Mozart; Don was the ultimate lover, it is a comic opera. He would use the orchestra to set the mood. A female voice starts out and is the number 1 difference between the two arias (a solo song) #26—Schubert; the elf king is dead and comes to take away the soul of someone who is dying. He always rides a horse and you get the sound of house hooves in the music. This song is about a man begging the elf king not to take his son’t soul away. Has a minor tonality. —A coda is an extra bit of afterthought in a song #29—Chopin; piano solo, Polish composer. Very different from the moonlight sonata because it has more movement #33—Grieg; Norwegian composer; Morning Mood and In the hall of the Mountain King are both from the same work. Peer Gynt is similar to the Wizard of Oz; he goes in search of the Mountain king who will grant the boy his wish to help his mother. But this song is about when he wakes up and the sun is rising out of the clouds. Starts with the ﬂute and then an oboe plays (goes back and forth between these two instruments until the orchestra comes in) #33—Grieg; This is when he sees witches who are guarding the entrance to the Mountain King, it is very repetitive and gives us the image of the witches doing a dance going round and round, faster and faster until they vanish. The song is only played by low strings and bassoon until the entire orchestra comes in. —a pizzicato means to pluck the strings with your ﬁngers #35—Verdi; the other Aria, but instead of a woman’s voice, it is a man’s voice and he sings the name.
