    Song no. 2 displays how Shostakovich uses uncertainty in major-minor mode to evoke folk-like flavor. In the orchestral introduction of song no. 2 mm. 1-18, the music sounds as if in an F# minor key, but the E major chords in mm. 16-18 that proceeds to the A major chord in m. 19 provide a certainty that the music really is in the key of A major (fig. 15), with the submediant chord at the beginning of the song gives the song a minor flavor. Fig. 15: The dominant chord in mm. 16-18 in song no. 2. Alfred J. Swan writes that the rhythm in Russian folksong is not rigid because a singer sometimes inserts an odd measure into a song spontaneously, and the song no. 2 displays this trait. Shostakovich inserts one additional beat in each of the first three measures of melody A, resulting a melody A’ that has different meter (figs. 16 and…

    Musical Analysis of “The Beatles”, the self-entitled White Album The first song of the album, “Back in the USSR”, written by Paul McCartney, directly parodies and references the Beach Boys, with subtler allusions to Chuck Berry and Ray Charles. It is set in the key of A major and has a 4/4 meter. Song form consists of an intro, four verse sections, each followed by a refrain, a bridge that follows only the second and third refrains, and an outro. The melody is undoubtedly bluesy, but…

    plays with our expectations of where the beat should occur and loosen up the rhythm and give it life. I chose AoS1 because wanted to explore syncopation in both melodic and the rhythmic section lines. I have done this because I wanted to give the music a sense of being laid back. I also wanted to explore polyrhythms and cross rhythms. I also chose Aos2 as I wanted to explore tonality, diatonic melody lines and modulating to the relative key. In this area of study I used modulation when I changed…

    arsenal of devices to prepare for the climax of the piece. Beginning in bar 38 we hear a prominent descending chromatic scale in the bass until bar 39 beat 2. We also see the rhythmic cell used in full again. We see a prominent forte at bar 41, from a dynamics perspective this is the climax of the piece. The right hand begins a descending scale in thirds throughout bars 41-42. We resume Db major at bar 43. To smooth the modulation back to the tonic key, a dominant chord is sustained in the left…

    posth. 67, No. 2 begins with a double period (mm. 1-16) that briefly modulates in and out of the relative key of B-flat major. The first two measures use a v-i progression in g minor that is the mimicked with a modulated V-I in B-flat in measure three and four to finish the phrase with an IAC to solidify the beginning of the common double period structure. The motif then repeats itself over the v-i progression in g minor again, but changes from the original statement by staying in g minor and…

    Personal Philosophy After completing the leadership inventory, I came to find that I had equal amounts of each of the four leadership styles. Personally, I thought my primary leadership style was analytical and my secondary leadership style was supportive. I did not see myself as being directive or adaptive, so I was surprised at the results. By having equal amounts of all four leadership styles, I will be able to use all the different characteristics of these leadership styles to aid in my…

    In Beethoven’s string quartet Op. 18 No. 4, there is the implication that the first movement sonata form has indeed been emancipated from the looming tyranny of the minor key and that the movement will, in fact, end in C major as opposed to C minor. In measure 194, the ESC is presented as a strong C major chord which should indicate the emancipation of the movement; however, this is not the case. As the closing material quickly continues, E-flats are reintroduced signaling that the outcome of…

    Fortissimo

    The first part with the original definition of the tempo - Non allegro - begins with a clear rhythm in the pianissimo of the violins, against which there flashes a brief, of only three sounds, the motif of the English horn, repeated by the clarinet, and then descending all the way to the bassoon and bass clarinet. This is a kind of premonition of the basic images that will unfold further. In the meantime, another theme comes into Fortissimo: tough, angular, in the jerky sounds of the orchestra…
