Music Appreciation Monday – Antonio Vivaldi

 

Antonio Vivaldi – Concerto for 4 Violins

This is such a high energy piece…hard not to tap your toe as you listen. How long do you think it takes a violinist to learn to play a piece of Vivaldi’s music? My son plays a little bit of Vivaldi’s music and it takes lots and lots of practice!

Were you surprised when the music changed to a slower section? Which part did you like better…fast or slow?

This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 1 plans if you would like to listen to more Vivaldi.

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.
