  • Amadeus By Peter Shaffer - 1,278 words
    Amadeus By Peter Shaffer The play "Amadeus" by Peter Shaffer was not written in order to be a biography of the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, much more than this, Peter Shaffer wrote it as a story, rather than a history. In his story he was free to insert fiction to make the play more interesting to a wide audience, as well as to fulfill his purposes. However, musicologists and historians have written several articles claiming that Peter Shaffer "trashed this immortal". What none of them can see is that in "Amadeus" there are situations that are plausible while others are "fictional ornament". In this paper I will make an attempt to point what is fiction or untruth. The center of th ...

  • Beethoven - 753 words
    Beethoven BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van (1770-1827) The composer of some of the most influential pieces of music ever written, Ludwig van Beethoven created a bridge between the 18th-century classical period and the new beginnings of Romanticism. His greatest breakthroughs in composition came in his instrumental work, including his symphonies. Unlike his predecessor Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, for whom writing music seemed to come easily, Beethoven always struggled to perfect his work. Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany, and was baptized on Dec. 17, 1770. (There is no record of his birth date.) His father and grandfather worked as court musicians in Bonn. Ludwig's father, a singer, gave him ...

  • Beethoven - 479 words
    Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer who is considered to be one of the greatest musicians of all time. He was born in Bonn. Beethovens fathers harsh discipline and alcoholism made his childhood and adolescence difficult.

In Bonn, Beethovens most important composition teacher was German composer Christian Gottlob Neefe, with whom he studied during the 1780s.

  • Death Of A Great Composer - 617 words
    Death Of A Great Composer It is hard to believe that the death of a man can remain unknown for several centuries. It is even harder to believe that the death of one of the greatest composers of all time, is indeed that. That composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was a child prodigy. He performed for royalty, wrote and composed symphonies, and learn to play the violin and organ without instruction all before he ever reached the age of seven. Mozart was truly blessed with a gift from God to hear the music before he ever wrote it. Many people were aware of that gift, including Antonio Salieri. Salieri was the court composer and was thought of highly until the works of Mozart became heard in Vienna ...

  • Elements Of Music: Sonata - 1,660 words
    Elements Of Music: Sonata The Sonata Christian Corah 10/6/96 In the late 1700's and early 1800's the Baroque period gave way to the classical era, introducing many revolutionary new scientific discoveries and theories. This drastically changed the peoples social views and brought on the age of enlightenment. With this change in social philosophy came changes in musical trends. One of the most important new trends of the time was a more common use of the sonata. During the Classical era, the sonata evolved into a more restricted role, and in doing so, embodied the new style of musical form for the time. The sonata originated in Italy and gradually gained popularity over the rest of Europe. Du ...

    ... rote specially for the occasion. In 1764 Prince Nicholas wanted to build a new palace, with extravagant gardens much like those of the Palace of Versailles. The construction immediately went underway and in 1768 after completion of the Music House, Haydn and the musicians moved in. Once everything was settled, Haydn became very busy. He composed theater works for puppet plays, the operas La Cantarina and Lo Speziale, as well as five or six symphonies a year. Between 1761 and 1765, Haydn had written over twenty symphonies.

  • Meaning Of Death - 1,830 words
    Meaning Of Death Death is a word that we know and fear, but what exactly does the word death mean to you? The end of life? The end of time? The end of hope? Wellmaybe. Some see Death as a messenger sent by god to take away people's lives. For some people, death is the worse of the worse thing of all, but for the protagonists in the plays Amadeus and Waiting for Godot death is something that they do not fear. They actually want to die or use death as a tool to achieve a certain goal. Although this might sound odd, there is a solid logic behind it. While death is a significant theme in both plays, the meaning of death between the two plays varies. In the play Waiting for Godot, Estragon and Vl ...

    Mozart Yekaterina Todika Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized in Salzburg Cathedral on the day after his birth as Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus. The first and last given names come from his godfather Joannes Theophilus Pergmayr, although Mozart preferred the Latin form of this last name, Amadeus, more often Amade, or the Italiano Amadeo. Whatever the case may be, he rarely-if ever-used Theophilus in his signature. The name Chrysostomus originates from St. John Chrysostom, whose feast falls on the 27th of January. The name Wolfgang was given to him in honor of his maternal grandfather, Wolfgang Nikolaus Pertl. He was the seventh and last child born to musi ...

  • Mozart Death - 1,802 words
    Mozart Death For the past two hundred years, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's death has been shrouded in mystery. Some say his great rival, Antonio Salieri, or the Freemasons murdered him. Others say he was simply exhausted. And some believe he died from sickness. It has been established that Mozart suffered from various illnesses, which no doubt contributed to his death. But some researchers have concluded that physical and mental exhaustion greatly affected Mozart, and contributed to his early death. These researchers claim that by cramming more work and play into one year than most people did in ten years, Mozart literally"burned himself out". The constant strain on his body forced it to succumb ...
