Question description

two music assignments, watching youtube and answer few questions.

Herbert von Karajan - Conducting Robert Schumann Symphony No. 1 Watch the video, then answer the following questions. Composer: Robert Schumann (1810-1856) Orchestra: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Conductor: Herbert von Karajan Full performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3R54DjZAYA (Links to an external site.) Links to an external site. 1.) Who was Herbert von Karajan? The biggest misconception of job of the conductor is that he is like a human metronome. You would not say that the job of the CEO is to make sure that everyone shows up to work by 9 a.m. A conductor leads by giving a larger picture and by communicating a vision of the music. 2.) How does Karajan communicate with the orchestra? In an orchestra, many multi-directional connections need to occur simultaneously in order for a successful performance. It is a complex web of interactions between the composer, the musicians, the conductor, and the audience. The composer has written the music. The musicians have learned their parts. The conductor has an overall vision for the music and is a central conduit through which the music and the musicians come together. Finally, there is the audience. 3.) How does Karajan’s method of communicating reflect on the music? 4.) How does it affect the way you perceive the music? Herbert von Karajan - Rehearsal of Schumann with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Watch the rehearsal videos, then answer the following questions. Composer: Robert Schumann (1810-1856) Orchestra: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Conductor: Herbert von Karajan Rehearsal: Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Shc-4AZVaNk (Links to an external site.)

Watching an orchestra rehearse is like watching a chef putting a dish together from raw ingredients. When we observe a performance, we get the enjoyment from the experience, but when we have the opportunity to go backstage and to see how something is made, we can learn far more about the music than from just listening to a polished performance. 1.) What was striking about the rehearsal process? What surprised you? 2.) Reflect again on how Karajan communicates with the orchestra. Is it different from the performance? 3.) Consider Karajan’s body language, his words/adjectives, and the orchestra’s response. Cite three segments in any of the 6 parts of the rehearsal where you felt that Karajan’s vision and movements were reflected in the orchestra’s performance. Then describe how his movements synchronized with the orchestra and the music. For example: Part 2: 07:56-09:05, “...this momentary relaxation in this short lyrical episode. Then comes the trombone chord… But then as easy and relaxed as possible, the winds as well.” Description: Karajan’s hands relax and flow… etc. 4.) The entire rehearsal is about how he would like notes to be expressed, phrases to be connected, instruments to work together. The biggest misconception of job of the conductor is that he is like a human metronome. A conductor leads by giving a larger picture and by communicating a vision of the music. How has watching this rehearsal affected your idea of the role of the conductor and what a conductor is at his or her highest aspirations?

What was striking about the rehearsal process? What surprised you?
Watching the rehearsal helps to learn more about the music than from listening to the
polished performance. Surprisingly, the rehearsal is of most interest because it’s just for an hour,
but it is inclusive of all the details of how Karajan communicate to his orchestra through
demonstrations and words. The surprising thing is that during the rehearsal, they sound a bit
crappy, but during the performance, they sound like one of the best ...
