Concert Report: Junior Recital Joe Crabb, Trumpet Drew Bridges, Tenor
After my experience in this concert, I discover that I will like to continue going to this concerts or recitals. Not only because the concert is free, but also because I enjoy seeing the talent that my schoolmates have.
This concert was a sonata. Sonata means a piece for small number of instruments or a single one. In classical period the term usually was referred to compositions for one or two instruments only (Kerman et al., 2012). Joe Crabb played the trumpet, Peter Marshall the piano, and Drew Bridges was the singer. Joe Crabb played the first song. He was playing the trumpet and Peter Marshall the piano. The name of the song is Suite No. 1 of Trumpet Voluntaries by John Stanley in 1613-1786 from the baroque period. This song sounded like it was made for the royal court. It made me feel like victorious. In the end of this song sounded very pompous.
The second song sounded very beautiful. The name is II Mio bel Foco by Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739). The style of this period was baroque. This song make me feel anguish. The amplitude of the song started in a pianissimo dynamic and increased to forte.
Another song play was the Tutta Raccolta Ancor by George Frederic Handel (1685- 1759) from the baroque period. Was played by the piano and trumpet. This song made me feel sad. The amplitude of the song was between pianissimo and mezzo piano.

“His tempo is off,” Sara mutters quietly to herself. It is minutes away until Sara herself will be in the same position as the boy with the off tempo. Sara is worried. She is afraid that with all her nerves of performing in front of the massive crowd, her shakes and trembles will hinder her performance, or even worse, destroy her performance.
“I will be alright,” Sara says softly, “I am simply here once more to share the world my music.” Sara pauses for a moment. “My emotions.”

On Tuesday night, December 8th of 2015. I waited impatiently by the Great Hall of the CCNY Shepard Hall. Seven twenty-three pm I looked at the clock on my phone. Small groups of people starts to enter the open door to the Great hall. Confusingly, I walk to the door and pick up the program note to CCNY choral concert. I went to the seating area and pick the row at the back. When everyone gathered, a man caught everyone’s attention, Ira Spaulding, introduced himself as the conductor of the…

1. Piano Sonata No. 13 in E-flat major Op. 27 No. 1
The first movement, No. 13 in E-flat major Op. 27 begins with a soft note that goes higher note as steps. The same melody repeats few times, then the sound goes gradually louder the sound, but at the certain point, the sound suddenly goes small like pianissimo. Then three note beats that repeats, then smaller touch of pair starts. Then, the same melody gets faster and faster. This piece ends by the same melody…
1. What mood do the opening stage direction and setting description create? What effect is created with the music of the “blue piano”?
The opening stage direction and setting description create a calm and soothing mood of the town. I felt a mood of soothing when the text stated, “You can almost feel the warm breath of the brown river beyond the river warehouses with their faint redolences of banana and coffee. This illustrates how the atmosphere of Elysian fields is pleasant and peaceful due to…
When it comes to music in film, it is important to properly capture what is onscreen with the music accompanying the scene. A piece of music that is appropriately orchestrated will allow the viewer to feel as though they have become a part of the film. Because the point of view of the camera is omniscient, the following musical description will attempt to create a piece that will not overpower the scene but rather complement it, and follow the emotion of the main character as the viewer cannot…

This approach differs from the norm, not solely focusing on musical terminology and analysis, but encompasses all aspects of Jazz. Jackson’s work travels through various aspects of musical…
