Apa pengertian musik klasik ?

Seperti apa komposisinya?

Aliran musik ini sering disalah artikan oleh sebagian orang yang tergolong awam. Mereka mengartikan musik klasik identik dengan orkestra dengan berbagai macam alat musik akustik. Dalam pengertian aslinya, musik klasik adalah musik yang lahir dari budaya Eropa sekitar tahun 1750-1825. Pengertian lain dari musik ini adalah musik dengan keindahan intelektual yang tinggi dari semua jaman. Keindahan intelektual adalah keindahan yang berasal dari tingkat kesulitan permainan musik yang tinggi. Artinya, musik klasik memiliki tingkat kesulitan tinggi dari segi harmoni, melodi, atau aspek komposisi musiknya.

Musisi yang berani memainkan musik klasik adalah orang yang sudah mahir atau ahli memainkan alat musik tersebut. Selain itu, musik klasik identik juga dengan notasi balok. Setiap lagu klasik ditulis menggunakan notasi balok yang panjang. Hal ini terkesan sangat menyulitkan bagi orang awam. Musik klasik juga menuntut setiap musisinya, baik itu pemain musiknya maupun penyanyinya untuk menggunakan teknik yang benar. Sebagai contoh, untuk menyanyikan lagu-lagu klasik atau seriosa, penyanyi harus menguasai terlebih dahulu semua teknik vokal. Hal ini disebabkan oleh tingkat kesulitan lagu seriosa yang tinggi. Demikian juga dengan alat musik. Untuk memainkan musik klasik, pemainnya harus menguasai teknik bermain yang benar.

Yang tergolong musik klasik adalah lagu atau simfoni, atau instrumentalia yang diciptakan oleh para musisi pada zaman klasik yaitu pada tahun 1750-1825. Misalnya ‘Piano Concerto in B, Major’ karya Ludwig Louis Van Beethoven (1795). Begitu pula karya simfono, serenada, minuet dan lain-lain. Walaupun karya-karya klasik tersebut dibawakan oleh orkestra, band, atau kelompok musik tertentu, asalkan dapat memainkan karya musik klasik sesuai dengan teksnya, berarti kelompok musik tersebut membawakan lagu klasik. Dari keterangan tersebut dapat kita simpulkan bahwa belum tentu sebuah pertunjukan orkestra membawakan musik klasik. Bisa saja mereka membawakan lagu jazz, pop, ataupun jenis musik lainnya.

Getting Fernando Sor's Simfonia no. 1 performed MAYBE

I’ve been panicking and feeling useless today about how I’m 20 this year (23rd September - save the date) and I haven’t done anything good yet. So I’m gonna put everything into getting one of three symphonies by Sor played by some musicians at the university.

The score for all three symphonies was found in the Biblioteque nationale de France in 2003, but no performance or recording has been made since. Given the title ‘Simfonia’, it is likely that they were used as an overture for one of his operas or ballets. Even so, they would stand alone well.

The first simfonia, in C major (lots of it is in the parallel minor) is just a 2-movement work (Largo - Allegro Assai; Andante Molto) with mostly easy parts to play, which makes me think there’s little reason for an orchestra to not learn it. In the first movement there is a great dialogue between a clarinet and bassoon, and the second allows for a small display of virtuosity with one of the 1st violins taking a solo role.

The work I’ve done on this so far - apart from getting familiar with and excited about the score and thinking about the conducting - has been to write a piano reduction that I can share with anyone who wants to hear it (though the string and wind sections are very clearly separated, so you lose lots of orchestral colour) and adding a cello part, as that is lost. Haydn, whom Sor studied keenly around the time of the simfonia’s composition, generally in symphonies uses the double bass to double at a lower octave what the cello is playing. As the double bass in the simfonia is present most of the time when there is a string section at all, the cello part is mostly the same as the bass. I have also got two of my profs interested in this, one of whom also loves to revive “new old” music, getting us to sing a different ‘Canterbury Catch’ he has discovered every time we meet.

A dream would be to have a concert of Sor’s music… get some guitarists from the uni to play some stuff: the famous Andante Largo, the Grand Solo, maybe the later duets, some Seguidillas… and then out comes the guitar composer’s symphony. For all we know, it could be a premiere, two centuries too late.

Just a short fact flash. The Baroque style concert hall featured in one of my earlier posts is the Jakarta SImfonia Hall. It has been acknowledged as one the best concert halls in the world by famous world-class conductors, and I am proud to say that it is located in the capital city of my beloved country, Indonesia. It is part of a huge building, the Reformed Millenium Centre Indonesia (the hall is located inside the horizontal building in the middle of the two other buildings (the Messiah Cathedral and the Calvin Tower, as seen on this post). The whole building, including the concert hall was designed by the multi-talented Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong, an internationally acknowledged preacher, lecturer and musician. He is the founder of the Reformed Evangelical Church Indonesia. He is considered as “one of the greatest figures of Christianity in the 21th century”.

Opozita në pragun e të “40-tave” të deputetit të saj

Ilir Vata

Simfonia e zisë në partinë më të madhe opozitare, PD, ka nisur 35 ditë më parë pas një sherri në Parlament mes deputeteve të mazhorancës dhe të opozitës, ku deputeti Strazimiri mbeti “i lënduar” dhe më shumë e lënduar mbeti opozita. Dhe që nga ajo ditë opozita ka nisur “vajin me kuje” para shqiptareve me deklarata për shtyp dhe çdo ditë që kalon, kuja vjen e shtohet.
