- Classical music is considered mainly containing three significant genres such as Sonata, String Quartet, and Symphony with another minor genres. Attending classical music orchestra is a good opportunity to remind the essential principles of music composed in classical period. Comparing the difference between recorded performance and live performance helped me better understand the quality of sound played by instruments, influence that atmosphere created under live concert, and emotional appeal of music played by professional performers. In this writing, I state: significant principles of music I listened to at Tokyo Opera City Concerto Hall, analysis of the music, reaction to each composition, the difference between live performance and recorded performance, impressions about the live version music, and view of this opportunity such as academic concert assignment.
- To begin with, stating key elements of the music that I listened to at the live concert such as title, composer, time, instrument, and genre deepen the knowledge about each composition. Six compositions were played by orchestra, and some of them were quite familiar with my prior experience of classical music. “William Tell” Overture was the first composition of the program. Gioachino Rossini who lived from 1792 to 1868 composed “William Tell” overture as an introduction to opera “William Tell” in 1829. During this time, the penetration of Romanticism has huge impact on music. The use of instruments were: two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoon, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, timpani, bass drum, triangle, cymbal, and a group of five strings such as two violin groups, violas, cello, and contrabass. The genre was symphony as played by orchestra.
- Second composition was “Violin Concerto in D minor, op.47” composed by Jean Sibelius. In 1903 during Romantic period, he created this music, and was the only one violin concerto that he composed. The instruments were solo violin, two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, timpani, and a group of strings including violin group one and two, viola, cello, and contrabass. The genre was concerto. The highlight of this composition was that a high school violinist played the solo violin. The younger performer of violin impressed me with her very skilled play.
