Music Appreciation Monday – Vivaldi

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Music Appreciation Monday –  Antonio Vivaldi

Vivaldi is one of the first composers many families listen to as part of their music appreciation plans. He is famous for his Four Seasons masterpieces and we immediately recognize these works when we hear them. His vibrant style and his amazing command of stringed instruments inspires us all as we listen. I picked the following selection for this week’s listening because it highlights three distinct sections ( easily distinguished by everyone if you pay attention.

You may wish to challenge your children to indicate when the music “changes” in speed and tone. Active listening will help your child as he develops his classical music “ear”.

Antonio Vivaldi – Concerto for Strings in D Major

If you are trying to learn about the musical instruments of the orchestra, there are several featured in this week’s video. Point out the differences in the stringed instruments and how they are similar and how they are different.
