"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. I hope you've enjoyed hearing the inventive things Beethoven did with the piano next week a look at what Beethoven did with the symphony.

"Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn Germany in seventeen seventy Beethoven's father was a singer who worked as a court musician in Bonn but he wasn't very reliable. So by the time Beethoven was a teenager, he was supporting his family as a court musician. Beethoven. Played Violin Viola and most of all keyboard instruments. The prince who employed Beethoven sent him on a trip to Vienna, which was the center of musical activity in Vienna Beethoven played for Mozart who was so impressed that he said to his friends, keep an eye on him. Someday he'll give the world something to talk about. Once, he'd had a taste of Vienna. There was no keeping Beethoven in Bonn he moved to the Anna where he intended to study with. Mozart but by then Mozart had died. So Beethoven studied with Haydn instead. Heiden was a pretty easy going person while Beethoven was Moody and Intense. So their student teacher partnership didn't last very long just long enough for some of what Haydn was good ad like string quartets to rub off on Beethoven. Beethoven quickly became known all over Vienna as a wonderful musician at first he was mostly famous for his skill as a pianist. But when Beethoven was just thirty years old he realized he would have to give up his career as a concert pianist because he was going death. After a while Beethoven couldn't hear an extra well enough to stay together with it when they played and eventually he couldn't even hear himself play his own piano. But Beethoven, was such a genius that even though he couldn't here with his ears, he could still hear music in his head so he kept right on composing. Aw. In Beethoven's Day, composers were considered servants but Beethoven refuse to be treated like a servant by his patrons members of the nobility who paid him for his work. He knew he was unique and said so as he wrote to one of his patrons, there are and will be thousands of princes. Is One Beethoven. Beethoven wrote nine glorious symphonies more about those and his piano music in coming weeks. He also wrote Chamber Music Ballets Religious Music Songs, and one opera Beethoven wasn't afraid to change his music when he didn't think it worked this is one of four tries to get the overture to his opera just. Between the French revolution and Napoleon's Wars Beethoven lived through a lot of political changes. In fact, He created a revolution of his own, a musical one. Beethoven took the graceful elegant forms that Mozart and Haydn had used and change them into something powerful and passionate. Even in his own lifetime, Beethoven was famous all over Europe twenty thousand people came to his funeral for years after his death composers lived in Beethoven's shadow afraid that they couldn't possibly write any music as good as his.

"That's a clarinet playing the famous. Gla Songo and first theme or Melody from George. Gershwin's repeatedly in blue. List Sandro is a combination French and Italian word that means sliding. It describes how instruments. From one note to another. When the first theme returns, it's played by a trumpet with a Wall Mute a Wah Wah Mute looks like a toilet plunger minus the stick, and it's named for the fact that it lets a player make his trumpet go Wa Wa. And that was also the first appearance of the piano playing a different theme. rhapsody in blue was a rabbit that George Gershwin pulled out of his musical hat in a big hurry Gershwin had talked with popular bandleader Paul Whiteman about maybe writing a piano concerto that combined jazz and symphonic music, but they never made any definite plans, or at least that's what Gershwin thought until his brother IRA picked up a newspaper and read that George was writing a jazz concerto for a concert taking place in less than a month. The first theme again this time played by the piano at the point when George. Gershwin heard that he was supposed to be composing a concerto, he was knee deep in writing a new Broadway show, so he said to Paul Whiteman I don't have time for a whole concerto. How about a smaller pieces like a rhapsody? Whiteman said fine, and Gershwin tossed off his rhapsody in about three weeks. A different melody Latin sounding jazzy step a rhapsody is songs, or in this case, themes stitch together and Gershwin came up with some great ones. He originally wanted to call the peace, American rhapsody, but his brother IRA who had a way with words came up with a better idea IRA had just seen an exhibit of paintings by American Artists James McNeill Whistler who gave his work interesting titles like arrangement in black and gray, the real title of the picture. We know as Whistler's mother. Iris said call the piece rhapsody in blue. That's another theme from rhapsody in blue. That's been mostly chugging along in the background. Until now it's kind of amazing. How many different bits of deem Gershwin put into this piece? Here's another one. When Gershwin finished rhapsody in blue, he had no time to write out orchestra parts and decide which instruments to use pretty groping did that. He's the composer who wrote the Grand Canyon Suite with the donkeys. At. The original performance of rhapsody in blue, there was a lot of blank space in the Orchestra score where the piano part should have been because most of it was still in George Gershwin's head. George's brother IRA made another contribution to rhapsody in blue besides the name. George originally meant the whole peace to be fast and Jazzy, but in rehearsal. One day the musicians played the last section to slow IRA convinced his brother that it sounded better like that, and that's the way it stayed. Believe it or not. Here's a banjo part in rhapsody in blue, although it's pretty hard to hear it. This is a spot where you can, though if you listen carefully. Everyone who was anyone in the New York music world came to the first performance of rhapsody in blue, and they loved it. Overnight at the age of twenty five George. Gershwin became a celebrity. When named his brother's piece rhapsody in blue? The word blue referred to the fact that there was jazz in their more about that next time on classics for kids when you can hear other classical music that uses jazz I'm Naomi Newin I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at WG UC Cincinnati.

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. If the story of frontiers of Haydn's farewell symphony were a fairytale, it would start out once upon a time. But this is a true story. When Haydn worked as music, director and composer, for prince nNcholas Eszterhas e every year at soon as the weather turned nice the entire household packed up and moved to the summer palace, even though the summer palace named Eszterhas was big and beautiful. It wasn't quite big enough for everyone the prince since he was the prince brought his whole family and invited lots of guests. But the musicians in the court orchestra who were considered servants weren't allowed to bring their wives and children to the summer palace needless to say they weren't too thrilled about that. One year it stayed warm long into the fall and prince nNcholas didn't leave the summer palace. It got to be November and the prince showed no sign of heading back to the Anna where all the musicians families were waiting. The orchestra members went to their director Haydn and asked him to do something Haydn, who loved to good joke, and got along very well with his boss. The prince came up with a very clever idea. The next concert for prince nNcholas featured a new symphony by Haydn his forty fifth the first three movements or sections of the peace were perfectly normal, and so was the beginning of the last movement. Then there was a pause and a complete change of melody and mood. All of a sudden, in the middle of the music, two of the orchestra members and Oba withstand a horn player stood up blew out the candles, lighting their music, stands and left the stage. Then more wind instruments took off. I the soonest don't listen for him anymore. He's gone. Pretty soon. The other oboe est left to before letting the double bass player go heightened gave him a nice solo. But then the double bass left. And so did the cello which made the orchestra Sam pretty puny? By the time three more instruments took off there were only two violinists Haydn and one other man onstage playing. Fortunately, prince nNcholas thought having musicians say farewell during a symphony was very amusing. And he took the hint the next day they all headed for home in Haydn's. Farewell symphony and many other Haydn symphonies. The third movement is a minuet next week. More about the minuet and how it migrated from the dance floor to the concert hall. I'm Naomi Lewin.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids in honor of the season. Some classical music. That's traditionally heard at Christmas time. George Frederic Handel's messiah wasn't written for Christmas. It was first performed. In April messiah is an oratorio a piece for solo singers chorus and orchestra that's based on a sacred a religious story, even though or a Tory os are performed on stage. They're different from operas. Because unlike an opera, the story is not acted out handles or a to'real messiah tells the story of Jesus whom Christians considered to be the messiah the whole first part of the oratorio is about his birth. The text of Handel's messiah comes from the bible part of it is from the Old Testament like the book of Isaiah. And messiah also uses parts of the New Testament. There's an oppor that really has nothing to do with Christmas. Even though this is the time of year when you usually see it, maybe German, composer, Engelbert, Humperdinck opera, Hansel and gretel got connected to Christmas because it was first performed on December twenty third over a hundred years ago. Unlike Handel's messiah, there's is not much religion in Hansel and gretel except the evening prayer that the title characters sing when they realize they're going to have to spend the night in the woods. There is an opera that was written just for Christmas. In fact, it was also written especially for television. A mall and the night visitors by Giancarlo Menotti was first performed on TV live on Christmas Eve nineteen fifty one. It's the story of a poor. Boy, a mom and his mother who gives shelter for a night to the three wise men in the opera three kings as they're on their way to visit the baby Jesus. Hey. All right. The opera ends with a miracle. Among all who couldn't walk without a crutch is cured as he gets ready to go with the kings to give his crutch to the newborn, baby. He says goodbye to his mother. I. Those three pieces of classical music Amal and the night visitors Hansel and gretel and handles messiah have all become Christmas traditions. And of course, so has Tchaikovsky's ballet the nutcracker. I'm mayo me Lewin produce classics for kids with Tim Lander at W G, U C Cincinnati.

"I maley Lewin welcome to classics for kids. Composer Edvard. Grieg was born in Norway, a Scandinavian country today music by some more Scandinavian composers. There are three countries that officially belong to the northern corner of Europe, known as Standen, Avia, Norway Denmark, and Sweden. Scandinavians like composers in other places wanted to develop a musical style that was distinct, their particular countries that usually meant using or imitating native folk music, which is what Swedish composer who go out and did in the dance of the shepherdess. Another Swedish composer dog Virin was born about a quarter of a century after Verron studied in France. So his serenade for strings has a bit of a French flavor. Virin may have studied in France, but French composers were not the ones he admired most. He said, I believe in God, Mozart and Carl, Nielsen, Nielsen was a fellow Scandinavian composer from Denmark. He based his opera masquerade on a comedy by Scandinavian, playwright, the big Hobart. Nielsen lived well into the twentieth century. The most important Danish composer of the nineteenth century, the man whom Edvard Grieg really admired was Neal's gotta. Another Danish composer was actually born in Germany, but Friedrich koolau hotfooted out of Germany in his early twenties in order to avoid being drafted into Napoleon's army. When he got the Copenhagen Pulau wrote operas for the Royal theatre. There are only three officially designated Scandinavian countries, but there are also a couple of hangers on Finland and Iceland. Sometimes wind up getting thrown into the Scandinavian mix because Finland spent a lot of time belonging to Sweden and Iceland belonged first to Norway. And then to Denmark, Johnson belius was the most famous Finnish composer and his most finished piece is one with a very finish name Finlandia. If you think there are no composers from Iceland. Think again, Yonne Nayef's wrote a piece about something. They have a lot of him his country, not ice geysers, hot springs that shoot up out of the ground just like old faithful in Yellowstone National Park. You can even hear them erupt in the music. Now that you've had a musical tour of other Scandinavian countries. It's back to Norway. Johan Halvorsen was another composer from Edvard Grieg's country. He spent a long time, directing the Norwegian national theatre orchestra. So how Verson wrote a lot of music for theatre and opera like the entry March of the boy. Ours. And of course there's Edvard Grieg himself. Some of his most Norwegian music is the stuff he wrote for the play here. In the hall of the mountain. King is pretty spooky stuff. And of course there's a pretty spooky holiday coming up. So next week's show will be full of great mood music for Halloween. I'm Naomi Lewin.

"Hello, I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics for kids. William Shakespeare lived from fifteen sixty four to sixteen sixteen long before Felix Mendelssohn. His sister fanny were born which was in the early nineteenth century. By that time, Shakespeare's work had been translated into all kinds of languages including German, which is what the Mendelssohn spoke as kids Felix and fanny loved to perform a midsummer night's dream with the two of them portraying all the characters. As a teenager Felix Mendelssohn wrote an overture to the play. In a midsummer night's dream. There are two kinds of characters. We'll people known as mortals including four young lovers, a Duke and his bride and group of nut too bright towns. People who are rehearsing a play for the duke's wedding. Then there are the fairies a king and Queen plus all their servants. At the beginning of Mandelson's overture. He sets a magic mood after which you can hear the ferries during around. Some Royal music announces overrun and to Tanya the king and Queen of the fairies. The story of a midsummer night's dream involves an argument between the fairy king and Queen and the mischief that follows to get back at the Queen. The king asks his servant puck to use some magic to make her fall in love. With the next creature, she sees that turns out to be some creature. It's bottom the Weaver, one of the silly towns people, but to amuse himself Huck has stuck a donkeys head onto bottom. You can hear the donkeys haw cau- in Mendelssohn music. Seventeen years after Mendelssohn composed his overture to amid summer night's dream for his own amusement. The king of Prussia asked him to write more music for the play. That Scherzer was meant to go between acts one and two Scherzer is at talion for joke, and the Scherzer is mostly about puck who loves to play jokes. Shakespeare also wrote some song lyrics for a midsummer night's dream and Mendelssohn set those lyrics to music. This is the lullaby with which the female fairies sing their Queen to sleep. Between two and three Mendelssohn put a piece he called Intermezzo, which is talion for something that goes in between. A nocturnal animal is one that comes out at night and in Newsweek Anoc turn can also have something to do with night the characters in a midsummer night's dream all spend a night in the forest. After Mendelssohn knocked turn all the characters wake up to find that their lives are back in order again. And for member that I said that there was a wedding in this play well, you can't have a wedding without a wedding March. I think you'll recognize the one that Mendelssohn composed for a midsummer night's three. Mendelssohn was not the only person to write music based on plays by Shakespeare. A lot of composers did. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at WG, UC Cincinnati.

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin Felix Mendelssohn was lucky enough to be born into a wealthy family with loving parents who encouraged him to be a musician. And his first name certainly fit his situation. Felix is Latin for happy. Mendelssohn was born in eighteen oh, nine in Hamburg, Germany, but he grew up in Berlin. His grandfather was the famous Jewish philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, but this was a time when it was very difficult to be Jewish in Germany. There were all kinds of laws and taxes that applied just to Jews Felix Mendelssohn. Father was a banker who didn't want to deal with anti-semitism people discriminating against him because he was Jewish. So he converted to Christianity and had everyone in the family baptized. Then he tacked Christian name onto their last name, making it Mendelssohn Bartoli when he got older Felix told his father, he would stick with just plain Mendelssohn. The Mendelssohn family held regular Sunday afternoon concerts at their house. So Felix Mendelssohn grew up with music all around him as a kid. He was already terrific pianist, and he started composing when he was ten. By the time he was a teenager Mendelssohn had already written some of his greatest music. When he wasn't making music Mendelssohn like poll typical kid tricks, one night, he climbed onto the roof and woke everyone up by yowling like a cat, but he was hardly a typical kid. In addition to German, he spoke French English and talion. He was also a wonderful visual artist, so good that he might have made a living as a painter. Mendelssohn also had a knack for making friends with older people. Some of them much older when he was twelve. He met the great poet and playwright Johann both gun phone good who was seventy two. At the time they became good friends and Mendelssohn wrote music based on good has worked. Mendelssohn loved to travel back then instead of going to college, a lot of young Europeans did what they called the grand tour around the continent traveling for months or years to see famous sites, visit famous museums and soak up foreign culture. Mendelssohn grand tour inspired some of his best music in spite of the fact that he got horribly seasick on the way to England and Scotland when he saw fingle cave in the Hebrides islands. Mendelssohn came up with an overture. When Mendelssohn saw the ruined castle of Mary Queen of Scots, he composed a symphony. And his trip to Italy, inspired another symphony. In addition to having a career as a pianist, Mendelssohn was famous as a conductor as a teenager. He fell in love with Johann Sebastian, Bach music when he was just twenty. He put together and conducted the first concert of the Saint Matthew passion. Since box lifetime, of course, Mendelssohn wrote choral music of his own. Mendelssohn had a younger sister and brother, but he was closest to his older sister fanny. She played the piano and composed to Felix and fanny, not only made music together. They also put on plays like Shakespeare's amid summer night's dream. That's the overture Felix Mendelssohn wrote for a midsummer night's dream more about a midsummer night's dream and Mendelssohn music for it. Next week I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at w. g. u. c. Cincinnati. Please join me again for more classics for kids.
