Music Appreciation Monday

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

Listen to Schubert’s “Der Wanderer” (D. 493) and view the slideshow of paintings by Caspar David Friedrich. This piece of music was written in October 1916. I don’t often pick selections with a vocal accompaniment but this is quite dramatic with the words and visuals.

This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 6 plans if you would like to listen to more Schubert.

Music Appreciation Monday – Mussorgsky

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

I think this is the first featured piece from Modest Mussorgsky. You are either going to really love it or hate it…it is a little intense. I would love to hear what your children think about this particular piece of music. Does it sound familiar to them? (Check out this link: Fantasia.)

Listen to this selection with your children: Night On Bald Mountain.

Music Appreciation Monday – Stravinsky

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

This week we will be listening to a dynamic composer that you may or may not like after listening to the selection. Please note that we all don’t have the same taste in music but it can be fun to try something a little different.

Spend a few minutes listening to this more modern composer with your children and then discuss it afterwards. Did you enjoy the style of his music? How about the way the instruments were played? Did it sound like “spring” to you?

The Rite of Spring (Extract) by Igor Stravinsky

This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 4 plans if you would like to listen to more Stravinsky.
