Art music report on “Partita for 8 Voices” “Partita for 8 Voices is a piece written by Caroline Shaw for a Capella octets and commissioned by Roomful of Teeth, a vocal octet she members, who perform a Capella. It is comprised of 4 pieces, which premiered individually from 2009 to 2011 at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Partita itself means “a suite, typically for a solo instrument or chamber ensemble.” Shaw has described the work as: "Partita is a simple piece. Born of a love of surface and structure, of the human voice, of dancing and tired ligaments, of music, and of our basic desire to draw a line from one point to another.” The four movements of the piece are titled: Allemande, Sarabande, Courante and Passacaglia, each inspired, and denominated after a Baroque dance form.
While the individual movements were named after the Baroque dances, Shaw stated that the suite as a whole was inspired by Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing 305, a black pencil and crayon drawing which is composed of one hundred random (in that they may be placed anywhere on the wall) but specific points (in that the artist should follow LeWitt’s instructions as where to place the point). “The eighty-sixth, eighty-seventh, and eighty-eighth points are located symmetrically across the central vertical axis of the wall from the forty-fifth, the twenty-eighth, and the sixty-fifth point in that order.” This is just one excerpt from the wall drawing and many different parts can be heard throughout “Partita”. The piece itself is very avant-garde, using whispers, sighs, hums, many guttural effects and imitations of instruments, and many times just plain, clear speech. Caroline Shaw won a Pulitzer Prize for Music for this piece in 2013, at 30 years old, becoming the youngest person to ever do so. The jury was quoted as saying the composition as "a highly polished and inventive a cappella work uniquely embracing speech, whispers, sighs, murmurs, wordless melodies and novel vocal effects."…...

Johann Sebastian Bach

...produced at Christmas. During his first two or three years at Leipzig, Bach produced many new cantatas, sometimes, at the rate of one per week. As a result, he had created a supply of church music to meet his future needs for the regular Sunday and feast day services. After 1726, he turned his attention to other projects. He did, however, produce the St. Matthew Passion in 1729, a work that renewed interest in the mid-1730s for vocal works on a larger scale than the cantata: the now-lost St. Mark Passion (1731), the Christmas Oratorio (1734), and the Ascension Oratorio (Cantata No. 11, Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen; 1735). In 1726 began to publish the clavier Partitas singly, with a collected edition in 1731. The second part of the Clavierübung, containing the Concerto in the Italian Style and the French Overture (Partita) in B Minor, appeared in 1735. The third part, consisting of the Organ Mass with the Prelude and Fugue [“St. Anne”] in E-flat Major appeared in 1739. From c. 1729 to 1736 Bach was honorary musical director to Weissenfels; and, from 1729 to 1737 and again from 1739 for a year or two, he directed the Leipzig Collegium Musicum. Bach died on July 28, 1750, at Leipzig and for about 50 years after his death, Bach’s music was neglected. After 1800, the revival of Bach’s music gained momentum. By 1829 a representative selection of keyboard music was nonetheless available, although very few of the vocal works were published. The St. Matthew Passion and the St.......

...together that entire second half of the concert. Overall I found the concert a success. It was nice to see such a wide variety of pieces - jazz, modern, ballet, contemporary - all in one place. Each piece brought something different to the table which made the concert enjoyable. Ashley's piece was so fun and bright which contrasted with the Women of War, a very dark, struggling piece. Quicksand had this lovely repetition to it, the hand/arm movement. The group moved together and slowly the two women were pulled apart. Wa(i)ver was powerful and had a unique beginning. I enjoyed how it combined theatre with dance. I also loved how the stage was fully open, it completely changed the way it was presented. The ballet piece, Partita V in G Major was a nice ending to the concert. It was lovely, graceful, and inviting. The duo/trio/quartet work and the cool green costumes were elegant. It closed the show on a sweet note....

Rule for Creating Value in Social Enviroments

...indirizzo degli investimenti, compresi quelli privati. Molto spesso le aziende di stato sono state i “campioni nazionali” che hanno aiutato la crescita delle economie dei diversi paesi e la loro competitività, anche attraverso l’innesco di fecondi processi di innovazione del tessuto produttivo, che diversamente (a causa dell’incertezza collegata alla redditività dell’investimento in nuove tecnologie) non si sarebbero potuti realizzare. Dagli anni '80 invece si è assistito ad una costante privatizzazione delle aziende pubbliche, alla dismissione delle partecipazioni statali e alla deregolamentazione dell'economia e della finanza, con il risultato che gli “spiriti animali” hanno ripreso i sopravvento. Dopo 30 anni di liberismo, nella crisi partita nel 2007/2008 sono stati proprio i paesi ad economia mista o comunque con una forte presenza pubblica quelli che meno hanno risentito della grave situazione economica mondiale, tanto che l'Economist nel gennaio del 2012 ha dedicato una copertina all' “ascesa del capitalismo di stato”. Il moltiplicatore keynesiano Supponiamo che lo Stato decida di dotare il Paese di una rete telematica ad alta velocità che arrivi in tutte le case, gratis o a prezzi molto contenuti. La realizzazione di questa infrastruttura andrebbe direttamente ad aumentare il PIL. Ma non finisce qui.

...different feeling. When Mr. Howard finished his performance he stated that he felt it was quite necessary to begin by providing the audience with significant background information about Bach. This lecture would allow the audience to better understand Bach as a composer and to appreciate his music work. To begin, Mr. Howard briefly discussed Bach’s early life and career. Bach was a prominent German composer and multi-instrumentalist in the Baroque period his works laid down the foundation of the Baroque musical period and ultimately brought it to its maturity. Bach was born on March 31st, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany. In 1707, Bach married his second cousin, Maria Barbara, and had 7 children. Bach composed his immortal Six Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin at a time when his first wife and several of his children died. He did not learn of these deaths until he returned from travel with his employer, Prince Leopold of Anhalt-Cothen. In 1721, after his wife passed, he married Anna Magdalena and had 13 children. Bach worked at various churches as a composer, performer, and musical director his final and most important position was as the Cantor of the Thomass Chule at St. Thomas Church in Leipziq, Germany. Bach died on July 28th, 1750 and was buried in Leipzig, Germany. He suffered from a stroke and severe fever. He was 65 years old. Overall, I enjoyed the recital. However, I must admit that it was quite a challenge to remain concentrated on Mr. Howard’s......

J.S Bach

...dismissed: "On November 6, [1717], the quondam concertmaster and organist Bach was confined to the County Judge's place of detention for too stubbornly forcing the issue of his dismissal and finally on December 2 was freed from arrest with notice of his unfavourable discharge."[35] Köthen (1717–23) Leopold, Prince of Anhalt-Köthen hired Bach to serve as his Kapellmeister (director of music) in 1717. Prince Leopold, himself a musician, appreciated Bach's talents, paid him well, and gave him considerable latitude in composing and performing. The prince was Calvinist and did not use elaborate music in his worship; accordingly, most of Bach's work from this period was secular,[36] including the orchestral suites, the cello suites, the sonatas and partitas for solo violin, and theBrandenburg Concertos.[37] Bach also composed secular cantatas for the court such as Die Zeit, die Tag und Jahre macht, BWV 134a. At least one significant influence upon Bach's musical development during his years with the Prince are recorded by Stauffer as Bach's "complete embrace of dance music, perhaps the most important influence on his mature style other than his adoption of Vivaldi's music in Weimar".[19] Despite being born in the same year and only about 130 kilometres (81 mi) apart, Bach and Handel never met. In 1719, Bach made the 35-kilometre (22 mi) journey from Köthento Halle with the intention of meeting Handel, however Handel had recently departed the city.[38] In 1730, Bach's son Wilhelm......

Concerning music, their ideals were based on their perception of ancient Greek musical drama, in which the declamation of the text was of utmost importance. As such, they rejected the complex polyphony of the late renaissance and desired a form of musical drama which consisted primarily of a......

Johan Bach

..."Well-Tempered" tuning method that has been in use ever since, and used that method to create his genius works that make up the "Great 48 preludes and fugues". His mastery of counterpoint is unique. And the vast number of works, from the simplest lute piece to his wonderful Cantatas and on to the massive Passions and Masses profess the enormous genius. It is true that his music fell out of favor after his passing, but a few decades later we find the great composers from Beethoven through Liszt (and many more) being greatly influenced by the master Bach. Bach's works. His pieces require a very good finger independence technique, clear tone, legato (without pedal), cerebral difficulty (fugues). Have you ever listened to his six keyboard partitas? Goldberg variations? If Baroque music had consisted only of harmonies like those of Handel and Vivaldi, great as they are, the next generation might have started looking for different ways to sound new and fresh.  We can't know, of course. There are a plethora of words that can describe Bach’s musical genius Bach's influence in music would be the equivalent an actor winning the holy trifecta of an Emmy for television, a Tony for stage productions, and an Academy Award for movies. As it is Einstein only tackled a piece of the whole puzzle; Bach was the ultimate initiator of all that we recognize today. Bach was influential during the baroque era. Bach's music was the foundation upon which modern music is derived from. His hard work...
