can’t get this from
WHY DOES THE INITIAL ENTUSISM DISAPPEAR? There was a time when you eagerly awaited the opportunity to pick up a tool and flew like wings on lessons, rejoicing at your successes. And suddenly something changed, something that once came so easily became a routine, and the need to allocate time for additional classes is an unpleasant duty that you want to get rid of. Remember that you are not alone in your feelings. Even great musicians passed through this. And most importantly, be honest with yourself. Answer for yourself: is there a problem in music? Or at the teacher? In the vast majority of cases, this is not so. The fact is that you want to play more with friends and have fun, and do not want to work. And music lessons significantly cut down your free time.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO TAKE APATHY! In this situation, you can get help from at least three sources: do something yourself, ask your parents for help and talk to the teacher. If after analyzing your situation, you realized that, in fact, your main enemy is boredom, deal with it with your imagination! Tired of hitting the keys? Continue reading
Adagio Albinoni is a truly enchanting piece of music. The melody as if touches the hidden strings of the human soul, is remembered for a long time and then, it seems, sounds inside. At first, no one doubted that the author of “Adagio in G Minor for String Orchestras and Organ” was precisely Tomaso Albinoni. However, musicologists today almost with absolute certainty declare: in fact, a completely different person created the ingenious music.
In 1671, in Venice, in a rather wealthy family of a merchant and patrician Antonio, a boy named Tomaso was born. It is unlikely that the parents then assumed that their son would become a famous composer, and a few centuries after his death he would become famous throughout the world.
Very little has been preserved about the life and formation process of composer Tomaso Albinoni. He began his musical career as a violinist, then began to write music, devoting his works and even entire collections to the honorable and famous people of his time. Thanks to his marital status, he could write music completely independently, not seeking to get a place as a court composer or to serve in any one church. Continue reading
In 1964, two students, Brian May and Tim Staffel, created a musical group in London, which for the most part played cover versions of popular songs at that time. The dentist student Roger Taylor responded to the announcement that the guys hung at Imperial College. He liked to play drums in his spare time. A little later another student really wanted to get into the team – Farrukh Bulsaraoy. So began the path of the group, which today is called “cult” and one of the most successful in the history of rock music.
The guys took the first name for their offspring from the author, who at that time were read out. George Orwell’s dystopia “1984”, which struck their imagination, was the first inspiration, and this is what the group was called. A few years later, however, the name was replaced with a less gloomy and slightly more understandable one – “Smile”. Music in the style of rock blues, performances, mostly free, on student evenings – the group followed the usual path of young bands, which usually eliminated 90% of all who want to conquer the big stage.
