YOUNG MOZART AND MUSIC SCHOOL PUPILS

Wolfgang Mozart gave us not only his great music, but also opened for us (as Columbus opened the way to America) the path to the heights of musical excellence from unusually early childhood. The world does not yet know another such luminous music, who showed his talent at such an early age. Triumphal Prodigy. The phenomenon of bright children’s talent. Young Wolfgang sends us a signal from his 18th century: “Do not be afraid, my young friends, go ahead. Young years are not a barrier … I know that for sure. We young are capable of many things that adults don’t even know about. ” Mozart openly shares the secret of his phenomenal success: he found three golden keys that could open the way to the temple of Music. These keys are (1) heroic perseverance in achieving the goal, (2) skill and (3) the presence of a good pilot nearby, which will help to enter the world of music.

Music Education: History in Songs of the October Revolution Song

No matter how belated curses are sent to Lenin and the Bolsheviks, no matter how rampant demonic, satanic forces the October Revolution is declared by some pseudo-historians, the book of the American journalist John Reed is nevertheless named as precisely as possible – “Ten days that shook the world.” It is the world, and not only Russia.

“I RAISED THE DUBIN AT ITS ENEMIES!” One of such things, as if anticipating, blessing and historically anticipating the social revolution that took place, of course, was Dubinushka. Fyodor Chaliapin himself did not disdain to perform the songs of the October Revolution, for which, in fact, he suffered – the greatest order of Emperor Nicholas II was ordered to “remove the tramp from the imperial theaters.” The poet V. Mayakovsky then writes: “Both the song and the verse are a bomb and a banner.” Continue reading

Famous arias from Verdi’s operas

Giuseppe Verdi is a master of musical drama. The tragedy is inherent in his operas: they have a fatal love or love triangle, a curse and revenge, moral choice and betrayal, vivid feelings and almost indispensable death of one or even several heroes in the finale. The composer adhered to the tradition established in the Italian opera – to rely on the singing voice in opera action. Often opera parties were created specifically for specific performers, and then they began to live their own lives, going beyond the theater. Such are many arias from Verdi’s operas, which were included in the repertoire of outstanding singers as independent musical numbers. Here is some of them.

“RITORNA VINCITOR!” (“GO BETWEEN VICTORY TO US …”) – AIDA ARIA FROM “AIDA” OPERA When Verdi was asked to write an opera for the opening of the Suez Canal, he first refused, but then changed his mind and literally a few months later appeared “Aida” – a sad story-tale about the love of the Egyptian military leader Radames and the slave Aida, daughter of the king of Ethiopia, hostile to Egypt.
