music topic writing paper-01
You will be creating a 10 minute presentation on a composer, artist, genre, or style of your choice. The presentation will include two audio recordings (no more than 1 minute in total length), but the majority of the time will be devoted to your presentation of the music, including any cultural, societal, political, social connections, and including your description of the music excerpts itself (using the terminology and vocabulary we have been developing in the course).
This is my brief proposal:
My presentation is going to be on the famous Russia composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Tchaikovsky’s works reflect the depression of the Russian intellectual class under the czar’s rule and their deep desire for a happy life. Focus on revealing people’s inner contradictions, full of strong dramatic conflict and hot emotional color. Tchaikovsky began to create in the period of the upsurge of Russian revolutionary democratic thought.The most interesting thing I found is his melody and rhythm is different in each period. From the basic aspect of creation, Tchaikovsky’s early creation tends to express the pursuit and confidence of light and joy, while his later creation tends to express profound tragedy. His fourth symphony and opera Eugene Onegin, which he wrote in the late 1970s, are his works at the intersection of the two periods. I want to present Manfred Symphony Op.58 and Symphony no. 4. Manfred Symphony Op.58 belong to the later creation, which turns to the profound psychological carving in style, and their themes are the conflicts between expressing the protagonist’s desire for happiness and the “bad luck” blocking happiness. Symphony no. 4 represented the life of people in Russia in that time.
