will be connected to our study we get scroll on stone radio hope that you had a blessed Easter and we hope that for many of you it was a time of spiritual refreshment and reflection as we remember and celebrated albeit sequestered what Jesus did for each of us on the cross I've always said that Easter more specifically passion week which culminates in that Easter Sunday the resurrection should be the most profound and meaningful week of our year and we hope especially in the days that we are now that it was for you our program today I wanted to begin with something that we have not been able to engage in for some time and understandably so and that's due to what's been happening around the world for the last three months and that would be our popular music corner segment with all that's going on around the world and the fact that our attentions have been drawn to other important matters there was something that was missed there was something that was overlooked and that was an anniversary which occurred last month in March more specifically March twenty first now what could been missed on that day you may be asking well that day marks the birthday of one of the greatest if not the greatest composer of all time March twenty first two thousand twenty marked the three hundred and thirty fifth anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach's birth now three hundred thirty five years is a long time but believe it or not I remember the three hundredth anniversary of Bach's birthday way back in nineteen eighty five when I was an eighth grader and my first great piano teacher at the time was immersing me into the world of Bach's keyboard music music like the various dances and the inventions and I remember him making a big deal about box three hundredth anniversary now to be honest I wasn't drawn to block as you would think at first it took me time to get into his music after all what what does a thirty year old really no but time did pass and as I matured musically and as I matured personally I begin to appreciate and eventually love the music of Bach and as time went on I also begin to see and understand the influence that he had not only on every great composer that followed composers like Haydn Mozart Beethoven Schubert Mendelssohn Chopin and the list goes on but it also begin to see the influence that he had on the artists musicians and even bands that I liked as I was growing up so when these connections were made my relationship of Bach's music was sealed and for the last thirty five years that love and appreciation has only grown more profound I will say without reservation or need of qualification Bach is the greatest composer of all time hero for every instrument and his music has been the defining influence not only for his period which was the baroque period but for all the periods that followed such as the classical the romantic the late romantic the moderate even arm postmodern world ticket a great composer you like and if they could rise from the dead they would tell you the same thing that I just said without Johann Sebastian Bach you don't have the development which occurred to music after him we talk about box influence we don't mean that composers who followed him sounded like Bach what we mean is that his ideas his development of melody and harmony work prerequisites for all other composers to study in order for them to write in their own style and I'm not just talking about classical or romantic composers I'm also referring to the twentieth century jazz in all its forms pop rock heavy metal progressive rock punk post punk alternative electronic EDM and the list goes on ask any of the leaders of these forms and they will tell you that box fundamentals are their fundamentals how many pieces do we sing or harm that we love that we actually think are originally from some current composer artist but are actually really inspired by Bach you'll be very surprised now and if you're curious about what I mean by that Jessica Paul McCartney's explanation of how he wrote blackbird and that will send you down a rabbit hole that will frankly amaze you on the influence of Bach's music on all not some but all great musicians when you delve into these things and see what a set of bop bop from those in jazz to electronic you'll begin to wonder how one man could be such a influence and I agree it's staggering to think about in addition to the incalculable influence of Bach has had on so many great composers the question has been asked what inspired him and if you could travel back in time and ask box that question he would inevitably say that god was his inspiration now that doesn't mean they believe that every idea came from god to him directly Bach was inspired by the world he lived in he was inspired by the music made around him he also was fired by the composers that were living during the time that he did what I mean to say is a Bach recognized as so little do today the big gift and the town that he had came directly from god and that his sole responsibility was to honor god with the very gift that was given to him as many of you know in addition to being a pastor I'm also a musician a composer and teacher of music and all my website Bergson music studio dot com I have a quote of Bach which says this the end end goal of music is nothing but the honor of god that was vox motus operandi hi to give glory to god through his gifting and this devotion has been recognized throughout the world you see throughout the world for the last two hundred plus years Johann Sebastian Bach has been looked at as the patron Saint of Christian music and the patron Saint of Christian musicians add to this he's held by many throughout all fields of the musical disciplines as the Christian composer now this doesn't take away from any other composers who also were Christian Barker presents is the culmination of Christian music through out the centuries if you look at the works of Bach has written the number of compositions that he penned your mouth would drop it is a measure of the staggering Beethoven once in regard to Bach this famous quote his name ought not to be Bach but ocean because of his infinite and inexhaustible wealth of combinations and harmonies what Beethoven meant by the statement was simply this ball is the German word for Brooke it should have been the German word for ocean because of the sheer volume and gravity of his compositions but it's not just the number of his works overwhelm the mind it's also the diversity of his compositions pieces like the corals the cantatas the masses the oratorios the passion the can charity your castle works even solo works for practically every instrument that existed during his time are all composed by him N. as prolific as he was in the realm of music he was also fully engage in his duties as a church musician and organised as a teacher a choir director a church composer and to top it off father and as many already know he was as prolific as a father as he was as a composer believe it or not he fathered twenty children yes I said twenty children however only eleven of them survived infancy this is possible of course because Bach was actually married twice his first wife her name was Maria Barbara and she gave birth to seven children box second wife was Anna Magdalena and she gave birth to thirteen children and what was being noted is that all these eleven surviving children four of them became composers in their own right and I want to give you the names of who these four composers are these four sons of Bach the first box sons become a composer was will helm Friedman Bach he was born in seventeen ten and died in seventeen eighty four he was box second child and first son who was born to his first wife Maria Barbara the second son to become a composer was his fifth son be born through his first wife Maria and his name was Carl Philippe a manual Bach he was born in seventeen fourteen and died in seventeen eighty eight now Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach who was called in the musical world C. P. E. Bach for short is really considered the most gifted musically of all the box children no it isn't until we get to the sixteenth son that was born a box that another composer actually emerges by this time box first wife Maria Barbara had died sometime ago in Buck had remarried his second wife remember her name was Anna Magdalena and this particular son was there ninety child his name was Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach born seventeen thirty two and dying in seventeen ninety five now what's interesting about your one Christophe Firth Bach was this that is eldest son will him Friedman earned Spock who lived until eighteen forty five was the only grand son of Johann Sebastian Bach to gain fame as a composer he was the music director for Frederick William the second of Prussia and this grandson was known for his famous quote they used to say heredity can tend to run out of ideas I was very famous quote he once said now the first son to become a composer was Johann Christian Bach born in seventeen thirty five and dying in seventeen eighty two he was the eighteenth child of all the children born to Bach eighteenth child and bought himself Johann Sebastian Bach was fifty years old when Johann Christian Bach was born he was it named J. C. Bach and is known in history as the London Bach he traveled to Italy and converted to Roman Catholicism before settling in London where he served under queen Charlotte this is the very same Bach who had a very significant influence over Mozart especially and the writing style of Mozart's concertos J. C. Bach composed all sorts of works from cantatas orchestral works keyboard music operas and symphonies and because J. C. Bach was living in during what we call the classical period his music actually reflects that style his music wasn't very much like his father's at all and as you know Bach lived during the baroque era these are the four sons they became composers now as for the girls there are a few facts that are of interest I want to share with you first it's important to know that unfortunately women were not allowed to pursue composing as a vocation having said that box first born child was a girl her name was Catharina Dorothea box she was born in seventeen oh eight dying in seventeen seventy four and history tells us that she apparently was a fabulous singer I was very musical and because of her musical talents she assisted her father in all of his work the youngest child that Johann Sebastian Bach had was a girl by the name of Regina Susana Bach she was born in seventeen forty two and died in eighteen oh nine she was the twentieth child the very last to be born and the only child of Bach to lived to the nineteenth century we get back from a break at a Swiss radio all talk about her connection to Beethoven stay tuned as low as radio we'll be right back with more starlet on stone radio and biblical teachings from pastor Craig on the answer San Diego.

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

"That's the opening to the fifth of six Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach. Why start with number five well first of all the concerto numbers don't really have anything to do with the order in which. Bach wrote them. The Fifth Brandenburg Concerto features a Harpsichord and the story of the Brandenburg concertos begins with a trip. That Johann Sebastian Bach took to pick out a new HARPSICHORD for the prince whose court orchestra he conducted. There are actually three solo instruments in the Brandenburg Concerto number five Harpsichord violin and flute. The harpsichord is an ancestor of the piano. But as you can hear it doesn't sound the same. That's because Harpsichord strings are plucked by teeny tiny. Quills in a piano. The sound is made by hitting the strings with small felt covered hammers. Here's a spot where the harpsichord plays alone. So you can hear it while he was on his trip looking at Harpsichord he met Chris. Jon Ludvig the Margrave of the province. That's like a state of Brandenburg. Margrave is a fancy title. They used to give to military governors of German provinces. The margrave of Brandenburg had his own orchestra and when he found out. Bach was a composer. He said he wouldn't mind hearing some of his work. Only own okay. There's the Brandenburg Concerto number one. It has a really huge group of Solo instruments. Seven in all Bach was thrilled that the Margrave was interested in his music. He thought there might be a good job prospect for him in Brandenburg so he pulled together a set of concertos mostly stuff he'd already written for the orchestra he conducted and sent them off with a very flowery letter to the Margrave the Brandenburg Concerto Number. Three IS FOR THREE SETS OF STRING. Instruments Violins violas and cellos. It's a good thing. Bach didn't hold his breath waiting for an answer from the margrave because he never got one in fact the margrave probably never even looked at these beautiful concertos. What A DOOFUS. Part of the problem may have been that his orchestra wasn't as big as the one baulk road them for so the Margaret didn't have the musicians to play them but he could have at least sent a thank you note. That's the six Brandenburg Concerto. It's also just for strings given the Margrave of Brandenburg's rudeness. You can bet that. Bach didn't name his concertos Brandenburg years. After he died one of Bach's biographers attached the name to them and obviously it stuck Bach called his pieces concertos for a variety of instruments which is a pretty good description since each one is written a different instrumental combination. The Brandenburg Concerto Number. Four has a small group of soloists two flutes or recorders and a violin. It's the violin that really gets to show off especially towards the end of the peace..

Johann Sebastian Bach 3: What's a Concerto?

"Kids. Concerto comes from two Italian words with sort of meanings first concerto means in agreement or together like the word concert. You go to a concert to hear people playing together but the Italian word contract. Tari has to do with struggling. And a concerto also has to do with one or more solo instruments doing friendly battle in concert with a larger group. Italian COMPOSER GIUSEPPE. Torelli gets most of the credit for developing the instrumental concerto. In the late sixteen hundreds an Italian who lived a bit later on Tonio Vivaldi wrote Zillions of Concerto will actually only five hundred or so. But it seems like Zillions Vivaldi's most famous set of concertos named for the four seasons the earliest concertos were written for violins. But you can have a concerto for any instrument. Here's one that you'll have nipple Makoma road for trumpet. One for cello by front-seat high one for Tuba by Refund Williams who in the late twentieth century Scottish composer James Macmillan wrote a concerto called vinnie Emmanuel for percussionist. Evelyn Glenn you can also have a concerto with more than one Solo Instrument Wolfgang Gone Medina's Mozart wrote this one for flute and Harp Dmitri Shostakovich wrote a wonderful concerto for piano and trumpet the end of the peace sense just like music for a silent movie. Let's because when he was young Shostakovich had a job playing piano for silent movies in box day composers also wrote something called the Concerto Grosso which does not mean. A concerto with slimy stuff. Losing out of it grow is Italian for great. Instead of just one or two soloists. A Concerto Grosso has a whole group of soloists. A smaller group pitted against a larger group. George Frederic Handel. Who lived at the same time as Bach wrote quite a few Concerto Grossi? That's the official plural of Concerto Grosso. a lot of Bach's Brandenburg concertos fall into the Concerto Grosso category in the Brandenburg Concerto. Number two the small group consists of Trumpet Flute Oboe Violin and the big group is made up of string instruments.

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. Two.

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.

Georg Philipp Telemann 3: Self-Taught Composers

"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. Garrick Phillip Telemann never studied composition. He taught himself. How to write music turns out that's not so unusual. A lot of composers taught themselves. As a kid Edward elgar wrote music for a play that members of his family put onto entertain each other elgar never had any music instruction other than instrument lessons, but he wound up making a very good living as a composer. When Nikolai rimsky-korsakov was in the Russian naval academy. He met up with mealy Bollock ringleader of a group of Russian composers Rynski Korsakov thought that Bella cure. Ed had taught him how to compose. But after he was hired to teach composition at the Saint Petersburg, conservatory rimsky-korsakov's suddenly realized how little he actually knew about it. So he got some books and studied hard always managing to keep just one lesson ahead of what he was teaching his students. After he'd gotten started on his composing career Francie spoon. I got a few pointers about writing music from his teacher, but Poulenc was mostly self taught. African American composer. Scott Joplin was the son of freed slave Joplin figured out. How to play the piano all by himself, and he also figured out how to write the NO rags? Scott Joplin did eventually take college classes in music, so that he could fulfill his dream of writing an opera when American composer, Amy beach was three years old. She taught herself to read when she was four. She started writing piano pieces in her head finally any beach went to a composition teacher. But all he did was show her how to teach herself by studying the work of other great composers. Someone else who believed in studying the work of other great composers was Johann Sebastian Bach. Learn composition from his family members. He came from a long line of musicians who handed down the profession from poverty to sun. But the concerto was pretty new in box day. So he taught himself to write concertos by studying on Tonio vivaldi's music. Twentieth. Century Brazilian composer, Etabe LA Noche was a big Bach fan when nobody was a kid. His father took him to concerts and quizzed him about the music. He was listening to what are those instruments who wrote that piece eventually below Bush became fascinated with Brazilian folk music and ran off to perform with street musicians, then below Bush found a connection between Brazilian music and Johann Sebastian Bach. He wrote a whole set of pieces based on that connection. By the time. George Gershwin finally got around to taking composition lessons. He was in his mid twenties, and he was already famous for writing popular songs, which he figured out how to do all by himself. There's a story that Gershwin asked to famous composers MAURICE rebel and eagles Stravinsky if he could study with them, but they both said no because they really liked his music and thought he was doing just fine without their help. And of course, someone else who started writing music as a kid without the help of composition lessons was this month's composer, Georg Philipp Telemann. That's the jig from Gail Phillip Telemann sweet indeed next week on classics for kids. The Jake is up. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at W G UC Cincinnati, please join me for a program of Jake's next time on classics for kids.

Now I want to get to that space to create in the conversation, cable Fosko NSM think everybody needs a space to think to create to John ideas. You know, I'll go further let you all way him, but I think that's the the difference. My daughter goes to Columbus school for girls, right? The only difference is the environment. You know what I'm saying? Columbus school for girls have about, you know, ten to fifteen kids in the class. The classrooms are intentionally set up in the way the setup based upon the other great level, the thing they're being taught and then everything's intentional about learning in a lot of inner city environments, you know is just kind of like, you know, who shot John and and all type of just met craziness going around from a sensory standpoint. Kids just, you know, scatter-brained everywhere. So that's something I felt like it was a gift to myself that nobody else could appreciate but myself. But I feel that allows me to go to the world as a better person. Yeah, fighting. Awesome. I mean, if you think about it, like when you're not working, you're either taking work home with you or your or you've done enough to where you can recharge. And I think when you're recharging. You owe it to yourself to have an area where your mind gets taken to a place that is absolutely a one eighty from what you spend all day doing. I think that's part of mental health.

"Important as multiple musicians needed to stay together in order to keep the peace from falling apart. By the mid thirteenth century. The first western rhythmic notation system was developed called rhythmic modes, laying the foundation of what would become our modern notation system. Rhythmic modes USA physical space between notes to indicate how long or short note was to be played. By the fourteenth century. This volved into a much more accurate and dependable system called Missouri notation here, the notes themselves were expressed with different symbols that indicated the duration of that note, this system eventually birth. The measure separated by vertical bar lines on a musical staff. A measure organizes a piece of music and small sections with each measure containing a certain number of beats a time signature expressed at the beginning of piece of music tells us how many beats are contained in one measure of particular piece of music today. The most common time signature in western popular music is written what's called four, four time, meaning their four quarter. Note beats per measure. So when you hear musicians counting one, two, three, four, and then starting over one, two, three, four. They're counting the beats of one measure in four, four time. Then moving onto the next measure. Starting the one, two, three, four count over a piece of music is organized measures, and these measures are performed literally to create a composition or song. Now I know this is a lot to throw you at one time, but the cool thing about all this is that you actually know these things quite well to prove this. Let's your few examples. I will listen to Brandenburg concerto number three and g major written by Johann Sebastian Bach in seventeen twenty one as the peace plays count along for four measures, and I want you to join in as counting, then I'm going to stop for two measures, but I want you to continue counting, then I'll come back in and if you and I are sinked you'll know that you can't to correctly in my absence. Okay. Ready count along with me one, two, three, four, one, two. Two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. Okay. So where we in sync when I came back in, I'm guessing for most of you, the answer is yes, let's try another, but this time I'm only going to count to measures with you. You keep counting when I stop and I'll join back in after a while again, if we're sinked when I come back in, you know, you counted correctly. My absence one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. So how'd you do again for most of you? I'm going to soom you did it correctly. These rhythms and patterns are so culturally ingrained in all of us that even those with Nobis training or able to do this exercise somewhat easily while this might seem second nature to you. This is actually an incredibly complex rhythmic system that took hundreds of years to develop and mature. It's the reason I took the time to outline it's lengthy development at the beginning of the sidebar. There's incredible history behind what we take for granted every day. Okay. So now that you're feeling like the second coming of Mozart, let's make it a little more challenging. Like I said earlier, most of the popular western music you listen to every day is written in four, four time for quarter note beats per measure, but that's just one way.
