Like I said in my last post, I was going to the New York Philharmonic. I went yesterday and I have a lot of things to say about it. First of, the New York philharmonic was at David Geffen Hall, in the Lincoln Memorial Center. It was beautiful from the outside, almost like a show of its own. The program for the night was three songs. Their names were Overture Of The Bartered Bride, Piano Concerto No. 2, and Pictures in an Exhibition. Overture Of The Bartered Bride was a very fast piece the lasted only seven minutes, the shortest of all of them. The next one, Piano Concerto No. 2 was the in the middle, lasting twenty-eight minutes. The piece was more clam. The last piece, Pictures In An Exhibition was the longest, lasting thirty-two minutes. This was the piece that I liked the most, and it is also my dads favorite. The composer of the piece, Modest Musorgsky, was walking through his friends exhibition of paintings, and he loved the exhibition so much, that for the next twenty days he wrote a composition about it. The composition begins with him walking to one of the paintings, which was the repeated part in the song. When he was at each painting their was different music. If the painting was happy, the music would be high pitched. If it was sad or angry, it would be deeper. When he walked to the next pictures though, it wasn’t always exactly the same. This depended on if he liked the painting or not. After ten paintings their was a grand ending , followed by minutes of applause. The composition then made me think. It showed me that in life, we change things about our self that we don’t like, like the different feelings about the paintings changing the tone of the composition. You should always be yourself though, like the repeating parts in the composition. I will now think about this composition more often, and see how I can be more like it, and maybe after reading this, you will too. I will be posting some, bye.
