"felix mendelssohn" Discussed on Classics for Kids

"I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. Lots of movies use classical music, but sometimes the music is such a big part of the movie that the two become linked forever. Even though Scott Joplin's music had been around for years, it was relatively unknown until 1973 when Paul Newman and Robert Redford made a movie called the sting. The sting is about a couple of charming crooks who outsmart a bunch of crooked ear crooks. The movie used a lot of Scott Joplin's music, especially that piece, the entertainer. After the sting came out, Joplin and his music were enormously popular, and it became impossible to think of the movie the sting without thinking of the tune the entertainer. That's happened with more than one piece of music used in a movie. Hardly anyone had heard of Johann pachelbel, who was born in 1653 until 1980 when the movie ordinary people came out. After that, pachelbel and his cannon, a cannon is a kind of a round, became household names. The movie breaking away is about a kid from Indiana who's in love with two things. Italy and bicycles. Well, three. There's also a girl. To go along with all the racing bicycles in breaking away, you hear Felix mendelssohn's symphony number four, known as the Italian symphony. There's also a bit of opera in breaking away, but in the movie diva about a teenage boy who can't stop thinking about an opera singer, an aria from Alfredo catalani's opera, la vali is the real star. The year 2001 seemed very far away when the movie 2001 a space Odyssey was made. Back then, people never dreamed that computers would get small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. That's the opening to Alzheimer's, the tone poem thus spake zarathustra by German composer Richard Strauss. 2001 a space Odyssey uses music by two composers named Strauss, who weren't related to each other. You also hear on the beautiful blue Danube by Austrian waltz king, Johann Strauss junior. Your parents or grandparents may remember a movie called elvira madigan that featured the slow movement from a piano concerto by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart would probably be very surprised that people started referring to his piano concerto number 21 as the alvara madigan. There's a movie you've probably seen that's impossible to think of without the classical music that's in it. When farmer hoggett takes his pig babe in his arms, he sings. If I had words to make a day for you I'd sing you on morning golden truth the tune is from one of my all time favorite pieces, the symphony number three by Camille saint saints. It's pretty unusual to use, let alone star and organ in a symphony, so that piece is also known as the organ symphony. This show started out with music by Scott Joplin, one of the great African American composers. Next week, music by other black composers, not all of them American. I'm Naomi loon. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim lantern at WGU, Cincinnati. Please join me again for classics for kids..

"Right? Incidental music illustrates the action or creates a mood for what's going on in a movie or play. For thousands of years all the way back to the earliest theater in ancient Greece, people have been using music to spice up what's happening on stage. The first time someone composed incidental music for a particular play may have been in 1664 for the first performance of John dryden's play the Indian Queen. But that music is lost now. A bit later, Henry Purcell wrote that music for another production of the Indian Queen. I have a composer friend who writes incidental music for plays and jokingly refers to it as accidental music, but since he and other composers spend hours getting the music just right, it's anything but an accident how music is used in the theater. That's some of the incidental music Felix mendelssohn wrote to set the mood for the fairies and magic in William Shakespeare's comedy amid summer night's dream. One of the human characters in a midsummer night's dream, bottom the weaver spends a good part of the play wearing a donkey's head instead of his own. In another piece of mendelssohn's incidental music for the play, you can hear the donkey going, he ha. He ha. The braying donkey is just one way that mendelssohn lets you know that amid summer night's dream is funny. Good composers use their music to show whether a play is a comedy or a tragedy. Definitely not funny, right? Ludwig van Beethoven wrote very noble music for the play egmont about a noble man who stands up to the Spanish inquisition. It's hard to stand up to the Spanish inquisition without losing your head, or getting hanged, which is what happens to egmont. The tragedy egmont is by the German poet Goethe, who really knew how to put words together. Unfortunately, Goethe had nothing to do with the German play rosamunde, which was so terrible that both the author and the play have pretty much been forgotten, but not the wonderful incidental music that Franz schubert wrote for rosamunde. If people like Beethoven and mendelssohn were composing today, they'd probably be writing music for the movies. Lots of classical composers have written film music like Erin Copeland, who sets just the right tone for the movie version of Thornton wilder's play our town. Of course, movie music has only been around since the mid 20th century, so all the composers who lived before then, like edvard grieg wrote their incidental music for plays. You can tell just by the sound of it that something very creepy is going on in the hall of the mountain king. In the hall of the mountain king is just one part of the incidental music that edvard grieg composed for the play peer gynt. Next week I'll let grieg's incidental music tell you the story of the play. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim lantern at wgc, Cincinnati. I hope you can join me again for more classics for kids..

Hopefully they won't get censored right because that could be a big problem because if you start to talk about vaginas and private things people give very freaked out even though we all have the same thing.

Oh no oh no the peanuts museum would go in the giant actually got a dead. Dick would get hard if they saw a giant and of course we need the butthole museum. Yeah now if we put that in greece. That's to stereotyping i go. That's a little race. I think it would be a great tourist attraction. You're always going to be offending somebody with fun stuff. Whenever you talk. I have a discussion. Someone is going to get offended. But i try not to offend people. Understand that i'm trying not to. I just couldn't resist the rick allusion.

But you know they have this whole amazing community of like one hundred and seventy people in portugal there runnings through the pandemic and trying to come up with ways to work with energy. And i don't just mean back cosmic energy although there into that but also the energy that we need to run our lives we depended humans and they are trying to work with the earth yes to cooperate with the sun and the wind and the water they say not just to use or misuse the earth and the water and the oil but to cooperate like bonobos instead of compete and one thing that sabine asks is how can we become one organism in cooperation. Which i think is an important question at this time. As we're being threatened by climate catastrophe and i think you can answer it in many ways. Part of it is economic and part of it is philosophical and social. And part of it is sexual because you do become one in orgasm. That's why that doctor was willing to risk everything for the patient that he shouldn't have been having an affair with to risk everything for that feeling that feeling. It's a beautiful amazing energy. The energy of the orgasm and the orgasm in love and lust is really a very powerful energy. And so this is a three love community ten mera. Yeah oh yeah. There's a lot of that going on to and they're very kind of hit be hippyish and organic. It's funny because at that time we had a porn star amongst us one of our bonobos was dayton rains with these giant humongous boobs and just this out their sexuality and she'd invited them into a Ville communion and of course communion is a way to achieve community and it's the same route as communism. Of course those of you think were communist. And yes they are these people into a of communal responsibility as well as ecstasy. That really is quite expansive. Because they did bonobo ville communion which involved licking intimate body parts with our porn star and me. And that's all i'm going to say.

"Joining us. We have been tying up loose ends for 2020 by talking about important passings that occurred in December, the first of which was the passing of an American hero, Chuck Yeager, which I dressed in our first segment. I want to now bring up another passing that occurred in December of a person well known in musical circles. His name was Harold Bod. He was a musician, composer, pianist and excelled in experimental music. He worked with various artists from Brian Eno to one of my favorite bands of all time Cocteau twins. He is on the first musicians to really perfect ambient piano music writing. As a matter of fact, my early love discovering the beauty of using major seventh arpeggios in unique and unconventional ways was directly inspired by Harold but himself. He was the creator of what he called soft pedal music, which described a slow and sustained an article that was published by NPR after his death, stated the falling, which I think describes Harold Buds style, perfectly quote. The primary que in this palette was a snowy white piano texture so smudged with soft pedal and sustain that it's like hearing Eric Sati through a blizzard. Though Harold Bud used all kinds of instruments, his main focus was just the piano and bullied. The simplicity of the one instrument was the best way forward, he said. In regard to technology the following quote the trouble with the modern recording studio in all its high tech options was that it gives you the freedom to do everything. And to me, everything is a tyranny, unquote. You could say that Harold Budd was a minimalist. He made 30 plus records through his four decade long career and my introduction to hiss sound and style was this collaboration in 1985? With the Scottish man Cocteau Twins. As I said, one of my favorite, if not my favorite band of all time, with their collaborative work, cold, the moon and the melodies. The moon in the melodies was a true Ambien album that really showcased Harold Buds, writing in piano style mixed with the ethereal and shoot gaze brilliance of Elizabeth Frazier's voice Who, by the Way, is my favorite modern day vocalist period and the guitar work of Robin Guthrie and the bass playing of Simon Raymond. Now. Here's some history about Harold, but he was born in Los Angeles, California. Raised in the Mojave Desert. He studied music at USC graduating in 1966. He was influenced by John Cage and the haven't guard, especially by the music of Pierre Boulez. He later let that influence behind with this single focus of making the very opposite kind of music music. That was the theory all and in his own words and music. That was quote an ethic of loveliness unquote. Would simply was a style of music that, through its beauty would actually offend his Aven guard peers who wanted nothing to do with beauty. This new direction is what led him to collaborate with a very well known musician Brian Eno, who was the pioneering king of ambient music and composition. If you don't know, Brian, you know, was the former keyboardist of the band Roxy Music. He was also collaborator Would David Byrne and especially David Bowie? And was the producer of many artists, including the famous You two albums, Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree. It was Brian Eno support of Harold but who propelled him to the success that he would eventually have? As a composer summoned Reynolds in this article on Harold Budd ended with the following quote. Although it's aura is a theory allow an unworldly Buds. Music is actually an example very form of humanly useful music. When the mundane urgencies of life for the nonsense of our political culture get you frazzled, which is pretty much every day these days. You can put on this music and imbibe its stillness and grace. His records are exactly the kind of music you'd play for Calm and Solis or at a service, sending someone Other final resting place. Harold Bud sounds like Heaven on Earth. Unquote help just released a new album collaboration with Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie on December 4th. Entitled another flower. The release of this album was just four days before passing away on December 8th. He died due to complications of covert 19. He was 84 years old. And he will be missed. Now in her continued tying up of loose ends for 2020. There are two more things that I have to cover that will keep us in the realm of music. With all the various topics that we were engaged with last month. I wasn't able to address everything at the right time. And so I want to use this time to do some housecleaning before we move. A fresh new topics for 2021. First as many of you already know. I did a multiple episodes survey of the prelude of Frederic Chopin. He wrote 24 prelude that were published in 18 39, and we gave you the listener the opportunity to learn about and to listen to each prelude. To give you the wide dynamic of Chopin's writing. Now, if you didn't catch those episodes just go door website at scarlet on stone dot com and looked them up. They're all past episodes are now on the website. These episodes will also have the recordings of these pieces and as a surprise, I didn't say this before. But several the prey lives that you heard in those previous episodes were recorded by me. Now, at the end of our survey, the Chopin prelude I said that I would provide my final thoughts on these works in relation to their legacy. So let me in this segment briefly address this very thing. Now, in order to understand the genesis of the privilege of Chopin. We have to go back to the year 18 36 So put yourself back to 18 36 in the city of Paris. The city was at that time, the music capital of the world, just as Vienna was 40 years before, and so composers came from all over Europe to make their way to make their mark in Paris. Francis came from hungry. Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Wagner came from Germany, among many others. And of course for Dick Chopin came from Poland. Shipment arrived in Paris and 18 31 at the age of 21. From that moment, he set off to show the world the music that he created and wood right. Robert Schumann said of Chopin when he arrived in Paris, quote hats off, gentlemen, a genius unquote. He was introduced to musical society as well as to the wealthy French aristocracy and to the wealthy Polish classes that were like himself exiles from their native Poland. In this hustle and bustle. This early romantic period in the heart of Paris, Chopin focused on two things composing and teaching. Believe it or not, Chopin performed very little as compared to his peers. Where Franz list gave hundreds of concerts in his lifetime. Chopin only performed around 30 concerts in his lifetime. Chopin was conservative, morally and politically and had a quiet, reserved nature and had no need to feel or to be the hero of his own story is so many other composers of his time did. 18 36 Chopin had established a reputation for himself. He was no not only through his pianistic skills and teaching but also through his compositions. Though he would prefer to be in his room perfecting a scratches composer. He did get out and threw his acquaintance and friend Franz list, he met the writer George Sand. George son wasn't a man. The name her son was actually the pen name of the female author or Aurora. Dude of all. She was a writer, and you could say that she was the complete opposite of Chopin in every way. She was un conservative, a moral, a feminist and a proto Marxist and she smoked cigars. Lot of cigars, and she also wore men's clothes Pretty amazing for women in the 18 thirties, they talk about a liberated woman now in regard to wearing men's apparel. There was a subtle logic behind this. Let me explain. Back in the 18 thirties..

The man who invented the movable type printing press mendelssohn didn't like the words to that song and told his publisher. He thought the music could be recycled for something else. Maybe a wedding piece but nothing really religious. After mendelssohn died someone in england discovered that the music went perfectly with a poem by charles wesley. The brother of john. Wesley who founded methodism <music>. Pieces that use christmas carols were meant to be played at christmas time.

An englishman named william chatterton dix came up with christmasy words. What child is this for the old folk song green sleeves years later when raytheon williams wrote his fantasia on green sleeves. He probably had a pretty good idea that the peace would get played a lot at christmas. Time the fantasia. Green sleeves was originally part of an opera but some pieces of christmas. Carol classical music written to be used in church johann sebastian bach was an excellent organised. Who spent years writing church music. Bach based a whole set of variations on the old german. Carol come mojo known in english as from heaven above earth. I come that same. Carol turns up in auto nikolas christmas overture which even has acquired to sing it. There's another german christmas. Carol in which. Mary sings joseph dearest joseph mine asking joseph for help rocking the baby. Jesus to sleep. Yohannes brahms used that in song. He wrote to honor another baby the son of his good friend joseph or josef in german. Walk him brahms. Like the inside. Joke of the to joseph's and he liked the wonderful tune which he gave to the biala A couple of centuries earlier than brahms was composing in germany mach. One chaperone ta was composing in france. Chaperone ta came up with a whole set of what he called. Carols for instruments. The title of this one is where are those cheerful shepherds headed. One of the top ten favorite christmas carols actually has music by classical composer even though that's not what he wrote it for felix mendelssohn composed a song to celebrate yohannes gutenberg. The man who invented the movable type printing press mendelssohn didn't like the words to that song and told his publisher. He thought the music could be recycled for something else. Maybe a wedding piece but nothing really religious. After mendelssohn died someone in england discovered that the music went perfectly with a poem by charles wesley. The brother of john. Wesley who founded methodism Pieces that use christmas carols were meant to be played at christmas time. Utter reno raspy composed a musical description of three paintings by italian renaissance artist. Sandro botticelli one of those paintings is the adoration of the maj. I in which maj i.

Antonio Vivaldi 3: Violin Concertos Through the Ages

"Some people love to show off or perform in front of other people. A concerto is a piece of music. Which one or more solo instruments get to show off in front of a larger group of instruments and also in front of an audience? The starring instrument in Vivaldi's Four Seasons concertos is the violin. The violin was invented over a hundred years before Vivaldi came along but not the concerto concertos for Solo instruments were born in Italy in the late. Sixteen hundreds soon composers in other countries wanted to write concertos in the Italian style. Johann Sebastian Bach Pot himself to compose concertos by copying out the Valdis music as he copied out the parts box. Study what he had done and how he had done it based on that. Bach wrote his own concertos for most of his life. Franz-josef Haydn held a job that involved composing music for the Court Orchestra that he conducted in Haydn's Day conductors didn't stand in front of the orchestra waving their arms. The way they do today back then. The head Honcho violinist or concert master. Who is a member of the orchestra was also the conductor so heighten was also a very good violinist and wrote concertos for his instrument by the Time Felix? Mendelssohn came along. The conductor of an orchestra didn't play in it anymore. When Mendelssohn became conductor of one of the best orchestras in Europe. He hired his good friend segment. Davi to be the concert master head. Honcho violinist then. Mendelssohn wrote a concerto for his friend to play. Mimbo Cement Dhabi also helped popularize an earlier violin concerto. One by Ludwig van Beethoven Beethoven's Concerto never caught on during his lifetime which may have been because at the first performance of the piece. The violinist hadn't bothered to learn his music. He was sight reading seeing the music. For the first time. Which you're not supposed to do in concert. People don't sight read Beethoven's Concerto in performance anymore some violin concertos got labeled unplayable. Because they haven't found the right violinists to play them. The first violinist Tchaykovsky asked to perform his Concerto. Said it couldn't be done turns out he was thrown. It makes sense that the history of Violin concertos follows. The history of great violinists Joseph. Yokneam was the greatest violinist in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century was happy to give advice on how to get around the violin to composers. Who wanted to write concertos for him? Like Max Bro. Up until recently most great violinists also wrote concertos for themselves to play. Not many of them do that anymore today. But Mark O'connor does you can definitely hear bits of folk music which is what. Mark O'Connor grew up playing in the PC calls his fiddle concerto. Fiddle is what folk and country musicians call the

Or wherever you get your podcasts so to get to the end of the mania and the end of life in eighteen forty seven list met princess. Caroline's you son Wittgenstein and he met her in Kiev and they started a relationship and she like his previous long term love affair with Mary. The princess wanted him to stop touring and settled down and focus on teaching and composing instead so while he and the previous his previous love interests come tests had needed to escape. Paris and scandal instead list was installed in the princesses estates as last paying concert was in September of that year and he was thirty five at the age of thirty seven. He accepted the permanent post of capita MEISTER. Basically the person in charge of music for the Grand Duke of Weimar. This position came with a royal benefactor. Carl Alexander to be his patron so he had the financial and social backing to just continue his own work. Liz Move to Mar. And the princess later joined him there. In addition to his ongoing teaching and composition list started trying to create new musical forms. The most famous of these was the symphonic poem which is a musical piece. That's meant to evoke or illustrate a story. Or if you SA- Visual Art. These compositions were really groundbreaking. And they attracted more music students. He wanted to learn from him. He dedicated most of his music around this time to the Princess Caroline and while in Weimar List wrote what's considered to be his most accomplished symphonic work in Faust symphony or Faust Symphony. This is essentially a series of interconnected symphonic poems based on Johann Wolfgang Von Jeff. This tragic play faust guarantee and. Schiller had both lived in. Weimar and Liz drew musical inspiration from their literary work. His post capital Meister also meant that was responsible for conducting the orchestra and in doing so. He really revolutionized what it meant to conduct up until that point. The conductor was basically a human metronome. He made sure that all of the orchestra played in time with one. Another and the nobody missed their cues. But at least added gestures and expressions and an emotive physical presence to guide with. The Orchestra's should sound like in the shape of the playing itself. And this is pretty much taken for granted in the field of conducting an orchestra today. That's how it works. At the end of the eighteen fifties life became more difficult for list. He resigned his post in Weimar in eighteen. Fifty nine and at that point. Two of his children also died one in that same year that he resigned and then another a few years later in eighteen sixty two he also got caught up in a musical feud known as the war of the Romantics and this pitted the more romantically inclined musicians list. Richard Wagner against the more conservative classically inclined traditionalist faction of Robert Schumann Felix Mendelssohn. Yohannes Brahms was basically a dispute between the more avant garde musical scene and the composers who drew their influence from past masters like Bach Mozart and Beethoven this association with Wagner also meant that lives developed a reputation for having antisemitic views but there's significant dispute about whether quotations that were attributed to him in this Area of thought were accurate or they were not at this point. Wagner is kind of notoriously antisemitic in his views. I had a hard time confirming exactly what views were so as whole musical schism was going on list moved to Rome where the Princess Caroline had gone to try to get her previous marriage annulled by the pope. She enlists hopes to get married but her annulment did not go through so they did not and at this point lists turned away from a lot of the world in eighteen sixty three moved to an apartment at a monastery outside of Rome in two years later in eighteen sixty five. He cut his hair in a tonsure. So that's the shaving of the middle part of the scalp that leaves a ring of hair around it. At this point he took holy orders that same year and he pursued an extensive study of theology with the hope of joining the clergy and although he was never ordained he did become an Abbott and he produced a number of religiously themed musical works in Eighteen seventy lists returns to Hungary to visit and while he was away from Rome. Victor-emmanuel a second attempted to unify all the Italian states and essentially laid siege to round since he couldn't return list remained in Hungary and accepted a post at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music in Budapest and today this is the Franz Liszt Academy of Music for the last fifteen years of his life list divided his time. Among Budapest Weimar Rome he continued to teach extensively and cultivated the idea of a master class. And that's an idea that's continued to be part of musical and other artistic education today. He taught these demonstration based classes. He being the master of course for free. He's struggled with depression and failing health for the end of his life and he died in Germany on July thirty first eighteen eighty six by then he had composed about fourteen hundred works although he's pretty universally recognized as virtuoso piano player as well as contributions to the art of conducting in the idea of symphonic poems there are still people that argue that his skill as a composer was all hype. I found several articles that were like five list. Was He really any good? I don't think that's always the case with avant-garde folks though right like even also the case with excessively pretty soulful looking people who acquire an overly excited base of fans that liked to scream a lot. Right I mean you could say that. Any person in the arts or anything really wear like if they have really rabid fans. There's always gonNA to be a kickback of like no. They're not worth all of that. Even though they are super talented and amazing right people say that about the Beatles. Plenty of arguments. You can make about the Beatles. And what their influences are whether there's influence should've gotten more attention and whether all of their work is really great but really seriously you can't just dismiss the entirety of the Beatles because ladies were screaming about them. Yeah so they're also this whole phenomenon. Spawned a weird rock opera about front of list in the Nineteen Seventies. That was called Mr Mania. There's also a song and album by the band. Phoenix that became very popular more much more recently.

Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach

"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.

Gioachino Rossini 3: Overtures

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Win. Overture comes from the French word for opening vow to. That's what they called the piece of music that opened ballets and operas in Seventeenth Century France. After French overtures became popular all over Europe non-french composers started pending the name overture onto larger pieces of music those overtures or sweets as we now call them consisted of alternating fast and slow sections but they always started off with an overture in the French style. A slow introduction followed by lively second section today the kind of overture we know best is the dramatic overture a piece of music. That gets you ready for a stage. Work that follows sometimes. Those overtures consists of a bunch of hit tunes. That work like the overture to Jacques Oven. Box Operetta the Grand Duchess of Charleston. Dramatic go all the way back to the days when trumpets announced that some royal entertainment was about to start. That's the opening to one of the earliest opera ever written or fail by Claudio Monteverdi. Good overtures really. Get you in the mood for what's coming up for instance you can tell from the very first note that something serious is going to happen in. Mozart's Don Giovanni overtures set the stage for plays to Egg Mont by Gooda is obviously a tragedy as you can hear from the overture that Beethoven wrote for it but when you hear the overture Felix Mendelssohn composed for Shakespeare. Play a midsummer night's dream. You know it's a comedy. Actually Mendelssohn didn't originally right. His overture for production of the play. His midsummer night's dream is yet another kind of overture. A concert overture as the name says it's meant to be performed on a concert and doesn't have to have anything to do with anything. Theatrical lots of times when composers were asked to provide music for a special occasion. They'd write a concert overture. So that people who were sitting for a long time at some ceremony didn't have to sit through a long piece too when you're honest. Brahms composed music for the ceremony at which he got an honorary university degree. He made all the students happy by putting their favourite drinking songs into his academic festival. Overture lots of concert. Overtures were intended for patriotic purposes. Like the one Tchaikovsky wrote for the dedication of a church in Moscow. Tchaikovsky used that occasion to celebrate Russia's defeat of Napoleon in eighteen twelve tchaykovsky certainly knew how to put a rousing end to an overture and of course Soda Gioacchino Rossini. With one he wrote for his Opera William. Tell one of the things where Seaney put into his William Tell. Overture was a musical thunderstorm
