Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

"I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics for kids. Viktor Hartmann was a nineteenth century, Russian artist and architect and a good friend of composer mode as his ski. When Hartman died suddenly at the age of thirty nine was dark ski was devastated. Hartman's friends organized a memorial exhibit of his work, and then resort ski created his own tribute to Hartman a piano piece that portrayed ten artworks from the show called pictures at an exhibition. Quite, a few people have made orchestra versions of pictures at an exhibition. The best known one is by Maurice, Richard. Pictures at an exhibition starts off with that promenade which pops up several more times. Zarzusky meant it as strolling music to lead you through the gallery from one picture to the next. The first picture in Zork Skis Exhibition is a gnome actually it's a sketch for a nutcracker shaped like gnome sort of a Goblin who lives under the earth. then. The promenade leads to a painting of a very old castle from medieval times with a troubadour traveling singer outside it in reveals orchestration the saxophone is the instrument that plays the part of the troubadour. From there we promenade onto a picture of a nanny taking care of some kids playing in the twee gardens in Paris. Doesn't it sound like they're teasing each other and? Yeah Yeah. No promenade before the next picture, which is of a wagon with huge wheels the kind of wagon that was pulled by oxen. The title of the picture is bid low, which is Polish for Oscar. After the last of the promenades we come to the ballet of the unhatched chicks. Victor Hartman's designed for some ballet costumes in his sketch to people where egg outfits with bird head helmets but I think the music sounds more like they're running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Next to that picture repair of Pencil sketches of a rich man and a poor man, the rich one sounds pretty snooty. Roll. Along. In the poor man sounds like he's crying. Back to France for the next. Women Gossiping in the marketplace in the town of Moses. Then a couple of very creepy scenes I some catacombs, underground tombs full of old bones. It almost sounds like they're about to get up and walk around to the promenade tune doesn't it? The next bit creepy nece is a sketch for clock based on an old Russian fairy tale about a witch named Baba Yoga who supposedly lives in a scary hut that's perched on fouls or chickens legs. The very last picture in the exhibition is the designed Viktor. Hartmann entered in a competition to build a gate that would be the grand entrance to the city, of Kiev. If, the great gate of Kiev theme reminds you of the promenade. Now, you know where that strolling music was edited all along.

Modest Mussorgsky: The Mighty Handful

"Hello welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. The mighty handful may sound like a rock band or a bad babysitting job and the mighty five may sound like a basketball team. But both of those were nicknames for a group of Nineteenth Century Russian composers interested in developing a Russian sound for classical music. Obviously, there were five of them. Mighty handful refers to five fingers. The ringleader of the mighty handful was mealy Bollock, a pianist and composer who wanted to promote nationalism in Russian music in music nationalism refers to a south. That's distinct Taylor country. Sometimes, that's done by using folk tunes, rhythms, or dance forms and a piece of music, but it can also mean including historical characters or legend from a region. While Akira, wrote an overture in which he put pieces of three Russian folk songs. Eventually Bala of became director of the Russian Court Orchestra. But for a while he quipped music and went to work for the Russian railroad in fact, every member of the mighty five held a nonmusical job at one time or another. Alexander Borodino was never a professional musician. He was a professor of chemistry. From the time he was a kid Borodino was very musical but he decided to study science instead he wound up founding the first Russian School of Medicine for women. After he met Bollock. The great cheerleader for Russian Music Borodino. Began composing. But since science and medicine took up most of his time, he didn't get a chance to finish very many pieces. One of the other members of the mighty hand full wound up putting Borodin's opera Prince Ebor into its final form, the man who cleaned up Laura Dean's music and music by quite a few other composers was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov. Rimouski. Korsakov was in the navy when he met up with Mealy, Bollock Kiro and decided that. Should be his life rimsky-korsakov quit the maybe to study composition after teaching himself to compose he wound up as a professor of composition at the new conservatory. In Saint Petersburg Russia rimsky-korsakov was great at orchestration knowing what instruments to assign to which lines of music in order to get the best sound. He finished a lot of pieces that some of his fellow Russians left unfinished and he also rearranged a lot of music some of which didn't necessarily rearranging. The. Last member of the mighty five was Cesar. Has An unusually UN Russian sounding last name because his father was French.

He complained so much about one piece of Zork Skis that Missouri Ski finally stopped working with him. was. Exceed thought the composition he called his witches was pretty good.

Mozart's Operas

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi. Lewin. Both Con Amadeus Mozart wrote more beautiful music in his not quite thirty five year lifetime than a lot of composers who lived a lot longer one kind of music that fascinated Mozart from the time he was a kid was opera. Mozart I. said he wanted to write an opera when he was eight and when he was twelve, he did up through the very last year of his life. He continued composing operas. An opera is a stage work with costumes and sets that also includes music singing as an important part of the drama instead of speaking their lines, the characters sing them. Italy. Was the country where opera got its start. So Italian was the fashionable language for writing operas even in German speaking Austria where Mozart lived. But Go to kind of opera that's related to our Broadway musical. It's called the Zing Spiel a play with singing Austrians who didn't speak Italian could understand because it was in German just like in American musical theater, there are spoken lines that move the plot along but when the characters want to let you know what they're feeling, they sing about it or August. I have two favorite Mozart operas one in each language not city Figo Godot is Italian for the marriage of Figaro. This opera is based on a very famous, very revolutionary play about a servant Figaro who outsmarts his royal master. Since, there was still plenty of royalty around when the play was written. It was pretty daring. Some kings wouldn't allow it to be performed. At the beginning of the Opera Figaro is busy measuring his new bedroom, you can hear him counting five, ten, twenty in. Italian of course. Susannah the woman Figaro's going to marry tries to interrupt. She wants him to look at her bridal veil. You can hear in Mozart's music how hard it is forces Emma to get Figaro's attention. Figaro has some Great Arias or Solos in the opera when one of the characters is sent to the army and doesn't want to go figaro things about what it will be like ticked rate in his pants, he closed for a uniform and then marched to the mud. Nine. and. My other Mozart favorite is the magic flute heat Salva Fluid a Germans ing. SPIEL. In the magic flute, the Queen of the night represents evil dark forces and Rostro represents light and truth. It's brilliant how Mozart shows the contrast between them by having the Queen of the night fast loud and very high. While rostro music is slow deliberate and very. The. Most, fun character in the magic flute is Papa Gay No. The Bird Catcher I even named a cat after him. Papa John is always looking for a wife when he finds one, her name turns out to be Papa Gain A-, and they sing a wonderful using their names to investigate the birds he catches.

About Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to. Classics for kids. Think of the most brilliant talented kid. You know maybe somebody in your class now imagine if that person couldn't be in class because starting at the age of five he or she was off performing for presidents, kings queens all sorts of world leaders. Well, that's what it was like to be both gung. Amadeus Mozart. Mozart was born in Salzburg Austria where his father leopold was a violinist and composer when Mozart junior was three, he climbed up to the keyboard and just started playing. That's when Mozart senior realized he had a genius on his hands. So he started the touring Mozart show he took his son both gun and his daughter Nano on the road to perform for royalty they went all over Europe. Sometimes staying away from home for years at a stretch everyone was amazed at how well the children played and especially at how well little both gone could improvise. That is makeup music on the spot using whatever tune they gave him. Votes, are composed his first piece when he was five had his first music published when he was seven and wrote his first opera at the age of twelve he was a Whiz at the keyboard and the violin most of Mozart's concertos for those instruments here for himself to play. Lose Friends with the best musicians of the day. So he wrote Concertos for their instruments to, for instance the French Horn. One friend played a newfangled instrument that Mozart. Loved the clarinet. A Concerts that he and other people put on Mozart wrote symphonies. And for celebrations he wrote serenade. When he worked for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg the man who also employed his father Mozart composed religious music. Having, toured all over Europe as a child Mozart did not want to stay in Salzburg working for the Prince Archbishop when he grew up even though that's put his father wanted. So he moved to the big city of Vienna, which was full of music theatre and opera in Vienna Mozart married Constanza Vaber. He'd actually fallen in love with her older sister I and he tried to find steady work that he thought was worthy of how talented he was. Mozart had a hard time as an adult. He couldn't get over being a child prodigy the very talented kid back. Then grownup musicians were considered servants by the nobles who hired them, but kings and empresses had made a huge fuss over Mozart when he performed for them as a child so he didn't think of himself as a servant. He also never learned how to manage money. He couldn't resist the urge to buy new clothes or a piano or a billiard table whatever he wanted. Mozart. Died just before his thirty fifth birthday. It's amazing. How much incredibly beautiful music he wrote in such a short

Music that Imitates Inanimate Objects

"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. It's pretty obvious that at the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony The Orchestra is imitating something mechanical. That's not a clock ticking. It's a metronome, the machine that was invented to show exactly how fast or slow a piece of music should be played before the metronome. The only way to show the tempo of a piece was by writing fast slow, very fast or very slow usually in Italian on the music. But a composer had no way of telling you exactly how fast very fast was. That's where the. Comes in. In, the early eighteen hundreds Dutch inventor named Dietrich Nichols Vinko perfected a machine that could be adjusted to take at set speeds, but Vinko wasn't a good salesman. So he didn't get credit for it. A friend of Beethoven's Johann. NEPOMUK melt. Seoul was the one who took out the patent on the metronome and marketed it. So he gets the credit. When you see 'em m equals sixty on a piece of music. The M M's stands for metals. metronome equals sixty a metronome marking of sixty is one tic per second, which is about the speed if your pulse. battleplan was the only composer to write music imitating an inanimate object something that's not alive. He wasn't even the only one to write music takes composers love to put clocks into their music. That's the symphony number one, hundred, one by Franz Joseph Haydn, which is nicknamed the clock for pretty obvious reasons. Hungarian composers ultime Kodi put a musical clock into his opera Janos. There's also a famous fairy tale character for Houma clock striking midnight was very important and very scary Sergei. prokofiev wrote a ballet Cinderella including the clock. One last. A tick that slightly off balance, there's a piece by American composer. Leroy Anderson called the syncopated clock. In this piece, the clock goes tick Tock Tick Tock and then suddenly. It does something different syncopation in music is when you shift the accent from where you expect it. To, someplace you don't. Leroy Anderson loved inanimate objects. He wrote another piece imitating one that's just about disappeared these days before there were computers with printers, there was the typewriter. In music, it's not just instruments that imitate inanimate objects sometimes singers due to. That's from the first act of Jacques Offenbach, opera the tales of Hoffmann in which the hero Hoffman falls in love with a woman named Olympia or whether he thinks Olympia is a woman but she's really a mechanical doll in the middle of singing her mechanical music she runs out of steam and someone has to wind her back up. Played. Some wonderful jokes with their mechanical music

Beethoven the Pianist

Beethoven the Pianist

"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. Once upon a time, keyboard music was written for the Clavichord or Harpsichord. A harpsichord looks a lot like a piano but the sound is produced differently inside a Harpsichord the strings are plucked by little quills sharp pointy spikes usually made from the heart ends of feathers. The only way to get the Harpsichord to play louder is to pluck more than one string at a time. But a piano has little felt covered hammers that hit the strings, which means you can control the dynamics. How loud the sound is by how hard you push the keys. The Piano is named for the fact that you can change the dynamics piano is short for piano, Forte Italian four soft loud. One of the cool things about even that he was living at a time when the piano was literally growing up that's William Black who was head of the Piano Department at the University of Cincinnati College, Conservatory of Music according to him. When Beethoven started writing for the piano, it only had forty eight keys. But by the end of Beethoven's life, it was much closer to today's piano, which has eighty eight keys. So over the course of his thirty or forty years of writing, he was watching this instrument grow both in power and in range. Sort of like a apparent watching a child grow from a baby to a an adolescent and finally to an adult in the thirty two sonatas big solo pieces that Beethoven wrote for the piano. You can hear him demonstrating some of the great things his new instrument could. William Black said in one Sonata, Beethoven starts both hands playing in the lower part of the keyboard and within a very short time the right hand climbs very quickly as if it's in a hurry to the top of the piano when he keeps doing that over and over again, and when he gets to the top of the piano plays very loudly all of a sudden to sort of proclaim that it's gotten to the time. That was one way to show how large the piano keyboard had gotten in another Sonata Beethoven starts both hands in the middle of the piano then has them traveled to opposite ends of the keyboard before they meet back up again in the middle. Or even has the top and bottom parts of the keyboard hold a conversation in this sonata it almost sounds like a grandfather talking to his grandchild. One of the great improvements to the piano in Beethoven's Day, was the pedal. Early Pianos had lever near your knee, which was pretty awkward to use on Beethoven's piano pedals had been moved to where they are today near the ground and you operated them with your feet. pedals change the quality of the sound when you hit a key on the piano hammers, strike the strings and the sound starts. When you let go of the key things called dampers come down onto the strings to stop the sound. William. Black, said Beethoven loved the new and improved damper pedal which stopped the dampers from stopping the sound so that it kept on going and going. So here was a a brand new sort of hazy foggy misty type of sound that he was introducing to to music that this pedal would make possible on the piano listen closely and you can hear how the melody gets slightly blurred. That's from the tempests Nada a piece Beethoven named for Shakespeare's play the tempest which Beethoven. said. Him To write that Sonata before that, you heard part of the pathetic. Sonata name that Beethoven also came up with and the Moonlight Sonata a name that was not Beethoven's idea moonlight was attached to that Sonata by publisher who knew he could make more money selling a piece with a catchy title.

"To classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. By the time. Giocchino Rossini died. He was seventy six years old but he only had eighteen birthdays. That's because Rossini was born in leap year on February twenty-ninth uh French horn was just one of the instruments. Rossini's father played as official town. Trumpeter in pays Idaho Italy where Seaney was born. Both Rossini's parents were or musicians. His mother was an opera singer which probably had a big influence on his choice of profession When he was a kid Rossini had a beautiful voice to his father taught him to play the horn and he also played piano and Violin at the age of twelve twelve? Rossini wrote a set of core tests for four string instruments. The first time they were performed he played the second violin. Part Rossini's first job as a teenager was coaching singers and playing keyboard instruments for an opera company. By the time he was twenty one in years. He's not in birthdays. Rossini composed ten operas. He wrote seven of those operas in less than a year and a half then. Rossini came out with the opera that what made him an international superstar And an Aria area is what you call a solo song in an opera and that Aria from Rossini's opera Tancredi was so popular that everyone in Italy whistled and hummed it from gondoliers in the boats on canals in Venice to people sitting in jury boxes. So we're seeing reused the tune for a set of variations Because he composed so many operas in such a short time. Rossini actually early recycled a lot of material especially his overtures for instance Rossini Pin this overture on three different operas the first two flopped at the the last one was a huge hit. You've probably heard the overture to the barber of Seville in cartoons or commercials and you probably know the partner of me. He Oh ooh. Even though the barber of Seville is Rossini's best known most performed opera. It's opening night. Did Not go. Yeah well another composer already written an opera. Based on the play the barber of Seville so fans of his opera who didn't think the world was big enough for two Barbara of Seville came to Opera Tabu then during the performance. One Singer had trouble with a guitar. He was supposed to play and another singer trip and wound up with a bloody nose but no one paid any attention to them after a cat wandered onstage. Needless to say there's no part in the Barbara of Seville for a cat but eventually Rossini did write a duet for two cats. Yeah Wow Rossini. Any wasn't enormously successful composer he wrote forty operas in under twenty years and then when he was just thirty seven years old he quit but he went out with a bang.

TJ Lieutenant Key J. or key J. as it's pronounced in Russian was a book and then a movie about an army the officer who never existed Sergei Prokofiev composed music for the movie. Lieutenant J. is a satire. A story that pokes fun at someone or for something in this case. It's czar the leader. who used to rule? Russia and all the people who work for him. The story begins with a copying mistake on a list of soldiers. Bizarre reads the mistake as Lieutenant. TJ and thinks gee what an unusual name so he asks everyone about the man. Dan In his army called key Jay. Of course there is no such person but the czar can never be wrong and everyone around him is too scared to say so so they create a whole life for the non-existent lieutenant and key J.. All on paper. Sergei PROKOFIEV's music describes key Jay's life beginning when he was born as key gets older supposedly he falls in love Prokofiev Camila Straits this part of Lieutenant. TJ's life with some unusual instruments that was a double bass which doesn't get to play Solos in an orchestra very often. Next up is the CELESTICA which looks like a tiny piano but sounds like bells Another instrument that Prokofiev used was very new at the time and is still hardly ever found in symphony orchestras. The saxophone after key J. falls in I love he gets married. I there's a wedding procession And then a dance jake. It's promoted but then he does something wrong and get get sent to Siberia as punishment. Siberia is a very frozen part of Russia. That you wouldn't want to spend a whole lot of time in eventually key. Jay is pardoned hardened but of course all of this is only according to army records. Because he doesn't really exist. I'm not sure at what point. TJ takes a sleigh ride. It sounds to cheerful for Siberia when Kijima finally gets promoted again to General Bazaar decides.

It was almost almost considered cheating to write down a fantasy A hand Sebastian bath originally only called that piece of Fanta Z German for fantasy but then he changed the title to invention same thing in England. They often shortened fantasy fantasy too fancy in Spain or Italy they called it a Fanta Zia and in French Pontes E. Sometimes a fantasy became the beginning of a whole sweet in the nineteenth century. Instead of making up the melodies themselves composers posers started to build fantasies out of pre existing tunes. Max Bruch used folk tunes. He picked up on a trip to the British isles in his Scottish fantasy in. Uh Pablo this. Sarah Saute a Spanish violinist based a fantasy for his instrument on themes from George visas opera. Carmen which is set in Spain in another Spanish fantasy by Joaquin Rodrigo uses old dance melodies in a new arrangement for guitar and Orchestra the fantasy up at one.

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.

Adidas female. Ray a drop of golden sun. Me a name. I call myself. Long way to run Hungarian composers Ultime Kodi singing was at the heart of all music. So he took sole fish and combined it with folksongs to come up with a method to teach people to read and write music, Joe Trinka teaches the Kodi method. She says it starts in kindergarten with very basic things. The first notes you learn are so and me in a song like rain go away that song starts out with Lou which happens to be. So in me, there's another little song come back home my little chicks, which would be. So so me. So so me, Jill Trinka explains that there are also hand signals for each soul Ferzan out. So if you look at your hand, the palm of your hand and spread your fingers out a little bit and put your thumb on top. That would be the hand signal or hand side. Fine for so. And then if you made your hand, flat pancake, so that your palm is facing the floor that would be a me and by using the signs the teacher in the students can communicate musically after you learn so and me and how to signal them with your hand. Then you find out where those notes belong on a page of music music is written on a staff, which is a set of five lines and the spaces between them we bind where the so would live on the staff, let's say it would be in a space, and that means home on the staff would be the space below. So if so however were on a line, then me would be on the line below. So after learning so and me one by one new notes are introduced I you learn a song that uses the note, then you learn the notes name, then it's. Hand signal. And finally, you see where it lives on the staff. Of course, just knowing notes didn't enough. There's also rhythm how fast notes move, and how long you hold them. Jill Trinka says learning rhythm starts with keeping a steady beat. So if you were marching to some music, you are probably keeping a steady beat in your feet. There are lots of songs that have a very steady beat. And sometimes the words the way the words go can be one sound on a beat. And sometimes there are two sound beat. And that's where we start left left. I left my wife and forty nine kids the old gray, mare and the peanuts. And do you think I did right right right from the country, where Kodi method also has syllable names for different note links. Tom is a note that lasts one beat when there are two notes to the beat. It's t t the song who killed cock, Robin. Who killed? Cock Robin starts out tie t t ta ta ta t t ta ta that's the same rhythm as one part of Beethoven's seventh symphony. Joke. Trinka says the Kodi method aims to show the links between folk music and classical music perhaps in kindergarten. You might have sung. There was a man and he was mad. So he jumped into paper bag which would be so dude it he do or in fourth or fifth grade. You might have sung the whistling gypsy. Oh, the whistling gypsy came over the hill. So do do and you can find those same patterns in classical music, so don't owed. Amy dough me Vassos fun me. By the time. They're in fourth or fifth grade just about every kid who has Kodi music in school every day just like reading or math can sing on pitch and read music from page.

Leonard Bernstein's Teacher Quit Because He Was Too Good

"Leonard Bernstein was born in nineteen eighteen in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Then grew up in the Boston area for years. The only music in the house came from a wind up Victoria and a radio, both of which Bernstein loved when he was ten. His aunt Clara gave the family Appiano and he was hooked. It didn't take long before. His first Pano teacher told his parents, they'd have to find another teacher because she couldn't keep up with her pupil. Bernstein's parents were both from Ukraine where one of his grandfathers was a rabbi. So the Jewish religion was very important part of Leonard Bernstein's life as he was growing up. He spent a lot of timing Hebrew school and synagogue, and the music heard there had a big influence on him.

He's the one who coined the term canned music implying that recorded music, like canned vegetables was not as good as the real thing Sousa realized that once people could buy music to listen to in their own homes, they wouldn't go out to hear band concerts and he was right, your attention attention. Friends with a wave of my hand. This very, please observe me if you will. I'm professor Harold hill and I'm here to organize river city boys, ma'am.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin FRANZ Liszt composed twenty Hungarian rhapsodies. So I thought you might like to know what a rhapsody is. That's a Swedish rhapsody by who go out fan. But the word rhapsody is Greek. It means songs stitch together. Ancient Greeks told stories about their heroes in huge long, epic poems, and they took parts of those poems and recited them using lots of vocal up Sundowns. For emphasis. The sing song recitation of poem pieces was called a rhapsody in music. Rhapsody is a free form composition that stitches different Kyun together. Lots of rhapsodies us popular or folk melodies from a particular country, like the Romanian, rhapsody number one by Georgia Escott. And that's actually got annoyed that his first rhapsody became so popular audiences never wanted to hear any of his other music. FRANZ Liszt was born in Hungary in spite of the fact that he spent very little of his life, their list composed, plenty Hungarian rhapsodies. Anyone who's at Bugs Bunny fan knows the list, Hungarian rhapsody, number two. Charles Stanford only composed six rhapsodies about his native country. This is Stanford's Irish, rhapsody, number five. French composer. Camille sound souls based his rep city Dovan on folksongs from a region of France. Another Frenchman got inspired by a trip to southern Spain Emmanuel Shabri called his rhapsody Espana, which is Spanish for Spain. Not all rhapsodies are about foreign countries. The second rhapsody for piano and orchestra by George Gershwin describes a walk through Manhattan. One of the five boroughs of New York City. Because Gershwin used music to imitate the sound of skyscrapers being built. His second rhapsody is sometimes called rhapsody in rivets. Rivets are what hold the metal beams of a building together. There are also rhapsodies than don't really have anything to do with a place as a wedding present for Robert and Clara Schumann's daughter, Julie Yohannes Brahm's rhapsody for voices. His Alto rhapsody. The rhapsody on a theme of Pattani by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff takes a little violin piece by Niccolo Panini. And turns it into a much bigger piece for piano and orchestra. I could go on waxing rhapsodic about rhapsodies, but end with a bid of the most famous one by FRANZ Liszt, his Hungarian, rhapsody, number two. I'm Naomi Lewin.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. In may. Thousand. When Jonathan Larson wrote the musical rent, he used the same plot as Giacomo Gucci knees opera LA Boheme hits the exact same story about a group of artists struggling to make it in a big city. But instead of nineteenth century Paris, Jonathan, Larson put his artists in twentieth century, New York. The names of the characters in rent are all related to the names of characters in LA Boheme, and there's even a direct musical quote, attempt to write a suite of Buckingham song. Doesn't remind us that as waltz aria or so low that the character Muzasa sings in LA Boheme has come to be known as music as waltz. Of course, the waltz is a dance and Jonathan Larson made a very funny musical joke by using another dance form for Maureen. The music character in rent. In the nineteenth century, the waltz was considered just as outrageous as the Tango is today. Saying God a fiery rain. Thinking dripping gasoline. Honey. I know this act, it's called the tangle more rent is not the only usable where a bit of Puccini pops up. Just listen to this piece of aria from Puccini's opera the girl of the golden west. Does that sound familiar. Your talk. No one can say for sure if Andrew Lloyd Webber consciously borrowed from Puccini for his music of the night, but some musical theater was definitely borrowed. All the music in the Broadway show. Kismet is adapted from compositions by Russian composer Alexander dean. For example, the pull up and dances from Borodino opera prince, eager. Became the song stranger impera dice. Strange are in power. And the nocturnal from Barra dean string quartet number two. Turned into the song, and this is my beloved. A musical called song of Norway uses compositions by Edvard Grieg to tell the story of Grieg's life. Music for that song. Legend from song of Norway comes from the first movement of Greeks, piano concerto. When Broadway lyricist Oscar Hammerstein translated George as opera Carmen into English. He moved it from Spain to New York City's Spanish Harlem and called it Carmen Jones. Grows up and he don't do what you want him to. And he won't pay any in mind. Naomi Lewin.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin by the time. Italian composer Giacomo Puccini was born in eighteen fifty eight. There had already been four generations of Puccini musicians in his hometown of Luca Italy. Most of the Puccini's were church musicians, but Giacomo had other ideas as a teenager. He fell in love with opera. That was the kind of music he wanted to write. Giacomo mother decided that her son should study at the conservatory in Milan as a widow with seven children. She didn't have money to send him there. So she got the Queen of Italy to give him a scholarship. Some of Puccini's student compositions wound up getting recycled in his operas. Justice. Puccini was graduating. He heard about a competition to compose a new one act opera he wanted to enter, but he had a hard time getting down to work. Thanks to his mother who kept prodding and encouraging him. He finally turned his opera into the competition on the last possible day. Cini didn't win a few weeks later. He was at a party with some of the competition judges who didn't remember his operate all. So they asked him to play through it on the piano. They liked it so much that they decided to produce. It may Lee who genie's first opera turned out to be a big success. But the opera that made him famous was his third one. My, no, let's go. Menno Lesko was a huge hit. Puccini traveled all over the world here performances and earned enough money to buy his first house. It was in Torretta Lago a lake side town near the Alps where Puccini loved to compose and where he loved to be distracted from composing when he wasn't spending time hunting or boating, or playing cards with friends Puccini worked on his next opera, LA Bowen based on a play of poor artists and students in Paris. Most of the critics who heard LA Boheme didn't like it at first, but audiences have always loved it. And it still Puccini's most popular opera after that he composed tusk, which is also based on a French play. Any had such exact ideas of what he wanted that he drove, the people who wrote his libretto's crazy, making them revise their work over and over LeBron is what you call the words of an opera. It means little book in Italian, and then there were the times that Puccini had to revise what he had written. The first performance of Madam butterfly was a total failure, but Puccini kept revising the opera until he got it right. Even though Madam butterfly sings in Italian, the opera takes place in Japan, which these next opera the girl of the golden west takes place during the American gold rush with a saloon keeper, abandoned a sheriff, and even a horse. The horse doesn't sing for his last opera toward dote. Puccini went back to the far east and a story about a Chinese Princess and the prince who loves her. Died before he could finish Turandot, and people still argue about how he meant it to end and about how the name of the opera should end. Whether it's pronounced to dot for Toronto when Puccini died. He owned houses all over Italy, but he was buried in the one in Todo Lago that he bought right after his first big success Puccini came along right when Italy was looking for its next great opera composer and he turned out to be it next week. A brief history of Italian opera. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at W G UC Cincinnati. Please join me again next time for it.
