- Nationalism In German Music During The Early Romantic Period - 1,330 words
Nationalism In German Music During The Early Romantic Period Until the nineteenth century, music was generally regarded as an international language. Folk music had always been in place and linked directly with particular regions. On a larger scale though, European music was a device for expression through the application of Italian techniques and styles. In other words, its technical vocabulary was Italian, and from the time of the early baroque, European music, in general, had evolved its styles and technical devices from the developments of Italian composers. Furthermore, court opera was nearly always performed in Italian, whether in Dresden or in London, no matter who composed it or wher ...

... pokesman for a movement begun years before by Fichte and Herder. Nonetheless, if this German national style is not, like other national styles, instantly recognizable as German, it had popular expressions which may now seem strange. For example, in 1863 the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna awarded a prize to a Swiss man, Joachim Raff, for his first symphony. This symphony was titled An Das Vaterland, and included a rather interesting and fairly detailed program: First Movement: Allegro. Image of the German character; ability to soar to great heights; tendency towards introspection; mildness and courage as contrasts that touch and interpenetrate in many ways; overwhelming desire t ...

- Notes On Russian Nationalism - 844 words
Notes On Russian Nationalism Nationalism in Music Prior to the 1830's, Russian opera and classical music was largely uninspired and derivative of Western works. While Italian and German music was well-known and enjoyed in Russia, the country had no distinctive classical musical style to call its own. Mikhail Glinka, commonly considered the father of Russian classical music, changed that. Glinka's compositions were powerful and distinctive, incorporating elements of Russian folk music. Glinka kick-started the development of the Russian Art Music style, which integrated components characteristic of Russian folk music and church hymns into classical music. He went on to become part of the Russi ...

- The Childhood Of Adolf Hitler: The Nativity Of Evil - 1,464 words
The Childhood Of Adolf Hitler: The Nativity Of Evil The childhood of Adolf Hitler: The nativity of evil Intro: An idea such as killing millions of people to create a more prefect world or sameness throughout the human race is absolutely psychotic and unrealistic. This vision was a fantasy world that no one on the earth would ever live in. Yet there was one man that truly believed in this fantasy. He had a plan, a scheme, sketched out in his head, of how this world would work. Yet the strange thing was that he did not fit in his own perfect world. Many ask how would someone come across this image? How is it possible? This image was created with constant negative influences throughout his life ...

... fect an art. They did however tak reat pride in their playing, but they placed themselves apart from other musicians of the time. The field trumpeters (i.e., military trumpeters) and kettle drummers classed with them did not form a guild, owing to their knightly character and the circ stance that their calling was considered not a trade but a free, knightly art.17 Perhaps this opinion caused a longer separation between the trumpet and the orchestra than was necessary, but the trumpet did not possess the versatility to play much mor han octaves and fifths, and these were terribly out of tune and horribly inconsistent, until the trumpet makers of the seventeenth century began to make great ...

... enemy. So great are the psychological resistances to war in modern nations, wrote Lasswell that every war must appear to be a war of defense against a menacing, murderous aggressor. There must be no ambiguity about who the public is to hate. American propaganda was not the only source of anti-German feeling, but most historians agree that the CPI pamphlets went too far in portraying Germans as depraved, brutal aggressors. For example, in one CPI publication, Professor Vernon Kellogg asked will it be any wonder if, after the war, the people of the world, when they recognize any human being as a German, will shrink aside so that they may not touch him as he passes, or stoop for stones to ...

- Wittgenstein And Aesthetics - 766 words
Wittgenstein And Aesthetics I disagree with Ludwig Wittgenstein when he states that aesthetics "draws ones attention to certain features, to place things side by side so as to exhibit these features" because of the logic that gives birth to the thoughts that led to this statement. This logic questions the ability of a person to ascertain what "beauty" is, what contains the quality known as "beauty", and the levels of beauty and how they can be measured and compared. Wittgenstein uses the metaphor of games to illustrate his points regarding aesthetics and beauty. He reasons that the idea of a common feature or "ingredient" being common to all games is to simple and primitive an idea to accept ...
