Gustav Holst: The Planets

"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. Astronomy is the science that studies the Sun Moon Planets and other objects in the sky astrology is not a science. It tries to show how objects in the affect people's lives on Earth Gustav. Holst loved astrology and he composed his planets to be musical pictures of human nature. Holst started composing his First Planet Mars. The bringer of war in nineteen fourteen just before world. War One broke out. Mars was the Roman God of war. All the planets in our solar system except Earth are named for God's from ancient mythology. In Roman mythology Venus was the goddess of love. But host was interested in astrology not mythology. So his Venus is the bringer of peace. Venus is sometimes called the evening star because it's the first pinpoint of light you see in the sky after the sun goes down. But, light from stars twinkles when it passes through the Sky, light from planets doesn't. Next up is the planet that Holst actually composed last. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. So it's trip or orbit around the Sun is the fastest. It's named for the Roman Messenger God who had wings and host called his mercury the winged Messenger. Mercury is the smallest planet in the Solar System Jupiter is the largest. Jupiter King of the Roman gods was also known as Jove. That's where we get the word jovial, which means cheerful or jolly host titled He has Jupiter the Bringer of jollity. Jupiter is full of great tunes. Host later turned this one into a patriotic song. Gustav Holst called his planets seven pieces for large orchestra. You might say, wait a minute. There are eight planets nine. If you're a pluto fan how come host on the road seven well, first of all host finished composing the planets in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixteen, and Pluto wasn't discovered until nineteen thirty also host based his planets on astrology which looks at how the other planets affect us here on earth. So no earth. Even, though the planets is the most popular piece, go stop host ever wrote he didn't think it was his best work, but he did like his planet Saturn the bringer of old age. Saturn Jupiter. In Roman mythology. There are other planets with rings, but none of them are as spectacular as the rings around Saturn humorist, Mark Russell joked that Saturn's rings are made of lost airline luggage, but they're really made of dust and ice. He only planet named for a Greek rather than Roman God is urine us who was Greek God of the sky. Rotate for turn on an imaginary line running through their middle called an axis. The access usually runs top to bottom with a little bit of a tilt like you see on globe but urine this is so tilted on its axis that it looks like it's spinning on its sign. Posts Planet Uranus is the magician. And his Neptune is the mystic. Neptune was the Roman God of the sea. In Neptune host created a really unusual ending for the planets. A double choir of women's voices join the orchestra singing with no words. And at the very end, only the voices are left and they just fade away.

Even though his family was descended from nobility, the story goes that one of Zorzi or Muzar excuse ancestors had quite a potty mouth. So people started referring to him by the sort of language he used Mazaar ski didn't have a very common first name either Modeste in Russian means the same thing as when you pronounce it in English modest. resort Steve got his first piano lessons from his mother and it was clear early on that he was a very good pianist but back, then the oldest son inherited the family house and land and the second son went into the army. Was the second son. So after he graduated from Military Boarding School, he became an army officer but not for long when he was eighteen was ski met Russian composer, Mealy Bella, Kiev, and started studying with him. The next year was ski left the army to become a composer. pollock was only a couple of years older than me. And he was very passionate about developing a Russian style of classical music for years. He and four other Russian composers met every Saturday night to study music together. Bollock didn't actually know that much about music but that didn't stop him from dissecting and criticizing the other's throat. 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. Then he was right we know those which is as a night on bald, mountain? The story behind a night on bald mountain may well be one of the Russian folk tales resort ski learned from his nanny while he was growing up quite a few of those legends turned up later on in his music. When Muzar oxy was twenty four. There were political changes in Russia and his family lost most of its land and money since McKee wasn't making any money composing he had to get a job. He went to work for the government, but he kept on composing was arc ski loved writing for the voice. Lots of songs including one about a very pesky insect a league. uh-huh. And Ski also wrote several operas. His masterpiece is a Russian czar or ruler who lived in the fifteen hundreds Boris enough. A. No Moose and Squirrel Boris good enough is not related to buddies bad enough. But now you know where the folks who wrote the rocky and full winco cartoons came up with the name. One of Mubarak's Ke's best known pieces. Pictures at an exhibition was written in memory of an artist friend of his who died unexpectedly.

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. Wish, I had time to play you more music from Mozart operas next week a kind of music so. In Mozart's bay that classical composers latched onto it to

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

"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'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.

"I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids FRANZ Joseph Haydn never had any children. But that didn't stop people from turning him into a dad musicians, who worked for Haydn were so fond of him that they called him Papa Haydn and we know Haydn as the father of the symphony. Hi, may not have been the first person to compose symphonies, but he wrote over a hundred of them more than anyone else, and he helped the symphony grow up because he spent most of his career cut off from the rest of the world composing for the Esterhazy family has heightened himself said he had only his own imagination to depend on. So he could experiment and do what he liked. That's high military symphony named for the drums, triangle and cymbals. He used in it for some reason. A lot of Haydn symphonies wound up with nicknames soon after he went to work for the Eszterhas. He's the prince he served suggested that Haydn write a series of pieces, like on Tonio vivaldi's four seasons. But named for times of day, instead, so Haydn called his symphonies six seven and eight morning, noon and evening in his evening symphony. Haydn borrowed these idea of putting a thunderstorm into the music. Two of Haydn symphonies have animal nicknames. The symphony number eighty two is known as the bear because the last movement reminded people of the kind of music played for a dancing bear. And the next symphony number eighty three is called the hen, because two different instruments, make clucking sounds, I the bio Linz. And then the oboe. Haydn's imperials Anthony, his fifty third was a huge hit in London. Paris, and Germany, the second movement was so popular that someone even wrote words to turn it into a song when they put up a statue of high in his hometown. They carved the music from the second movement of the imperial symphony on it. Sometimes the nickname of a heightened symphony is very obvious, like number one, a one called the clock. But sometimes you have to work hard to hear the reason for the nickname. Do you like Pailin drums, you know, words or sentences that read the same forwards and backwards like a man a plan, a canal Panama heightened symphony number forty seven is called the Pailin Rome, because Haydn put a musical, Pailin, Rome, into it. Exactly. The same music is played forwards and then backwards listen closely. Pretty cool. There are also Haydn symphonies named for places the Paris London and Oxford symphonies for a chandelier that fell didn't hurt anyone that's the miracle symphony.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. When someone says opera, what do you think? If your answer is a large woman with long blond braids wearing a metal bra and a helmet with horns you've been watching too many cartoons. An opera is like a play. It's a theater piece performed onstage with sets and costumes. Most plays have some music in them between the scenes or in an overture to get things started. But in an opera the music never quits. Around sixteen hundred a group of talian came up with the idea of theater with music all the way through it. Instead of speaking characters in an opera sing their lines. The really amazing thing about opera singers is that they make a huge sound with their voices big enough to fill a whole hitter without using a microphone it takes years of studying practice to be able to do that. That's channel poverty, a very famous. Tenor tenor is what you call the highest male voice in opera, or maybe I should say the highest natural male voice men who have developed the very high part of their voice known as the full Seto are called counter tenors. The baritone sings lower than a tenor. And the lowest voice of all is the base. The highest woman's voice is a soprano. Women who are called contralto or mezzo sopranos. Mezzo is talion for half. Since opera started in Italy. A lot of the terms are in talian a solo in an opera is called an aria. That's another Italian word when two people have a singing conversation. It's duet. If there are three singers. It's a tree. You can go on and on any soloists opera. Also has musical numbers for chorus a large of singers with no solos. Once upon a time. I learned some other words to that chorus from Faust that have nothing to do with the opera my goal roasted a kangaroo gay me the recently end to choose while. I was that very nice thing to do to give me the grisly end of a kangaroo who to there are other. Alternate words in German that have to do with passing the potato salad. Speaking of words, by now, you've probably noticed something else that operas a lot of them are in foreign languages opera. Singers, learn to perform in other languages, but you can enjoy opera without knowing those languages because most opera companies in America project English translations of the words above the stage. So that you know, exactly what's going on. Of course, there are presenting Lewis. This. That's from an opera by my father, Frank Lewin. He based his opera burning bright on a play by the famous American writer, John Steinbeck next week a bit about one of the most famous of all opera, composers Duceppe Verity. I'm Naomi Lewin.

"I'm Naomi Lewin welcomed at classics for kids. Frederic Chopin was one of the greatest pianists of his day. Every single piece of music. He wrote used the piano. Chopin was born in eighteen ten in town just outside of Warsaw Poland, but his name doesn't sound very polish. That's because Chopin's poverty was born in France. He moved to Poland married, a polish woman and wound up staying for the rest of his life. Frederic Chopin did just the opposite of his father as a young, man. He moved to France and stayed there for the rest of his life. And he never got married. His mother was the one who introduced Chopin to the piano by the time. He was six Chopin not only played phenomenally. Well, he was also starting to compose. So his parents got him a music teacher. But he wasn't a pianist. He was violinist since Chopin's teacher couldn't really show him. How to play his instrument? He showed him what to play instead leading him through all kinds of keyboard music by great composers because he never had an expert piano teacher Chopin came up with his own unique style of playing. Chopin's family moved to Warsaw. And that's where he gave his first concert at the age of eight, but Chopin quickly found out that he didn't enjoy performing in public in spite of the fact that he was so famous he actually gave very few concerts for paying audiences. He preferred playing in private homes for small groups of friends. The time Chopin was twenty he was pretty bored with saw so he set off to seek his musical fortune in other European cities. He was a big hit, Indiana. But when Chopin reached Paris that's where he decided to stay first of all there was the French connection of his father's background also as much as he loved Poland Chopin hated the thought of going home. That's because there had been an unsuccessful revolution against Poland's Russian rulers who were now completely in charge. Chopin was very unhappy thinking of the country he loved being dominated by Russia. There's a story that when Chopin left Poland some friends gave him a silver goblet full of polish soil, which he carried around with him for the rest of his life. That's probably not true, but Chopin did continue to be a passionate polish patriot. Even though he never returned to his native country. Chopin made a big splash in Paris. So even though he didn't like giving concerts. He had no trouble making a living. Lots of people bought the music. He wrote then took very expensive piano lessons from him. While he was in France Chopin had an interesting girlfriend named George actually her name wasn't really George. It was ovo French for Aurora since back, then it wasn't acceptable for a woman to be a writer of oh do devoe wrote under the name Josh song, George sand. Sometimes she even dressed like a, man. Frederic Chopin was never healthy when he was only thirty nine. He died of Burke, yellow sus. He was buried in France and special box of polish earth was imported to sprinkle on his grave, but Chopin ask to have his heart removed put in an urn and sent to Warsaw you can still see it there in the church of the Holy Cross. one kind of piece that polish composer Frederic Chopin. Especially liked writing was the pollen is a polish dance. The military Pullen is by Frederic Chopin. I'm Naomi Lewin.
