VIVALDI: The Four Seasons

by Susan Campbell


Composed in 1723, Baroque.


About the composer: Vivaldi was employed by the Pio Ospedale della Pietà in Venice to write two concertos a month from 1723-29. The Pietà was a publicly supported orphanage for girls that focused on teaching talented individuals musical instruments. The concerts held there were a tourist attraction, if you went to Venice in the mid-1720s it was a highlight to attend a concert by these young ladies.


About the work: Vivaldi was known for using fanciful titles for his compositions. The Four Seasons are a set of four programmatic concertos. The musical elements in each concerto give the image of the season they are portraying, such as chattering teeth in winter, the dancing peasants in spring, and the slow languid heat of summer in Venice. The four works were written to accompany a set of four sonnets that were most likely composed by Vivaldi.


About the music: A key element in composition is repetition. Several movements in The Four Seasons are in ritornello form. Ritornello is the alternation of a refrain (repeated portion), the business of the orchestra, and virtuosic sections where the soloist plays fast, high and sexy. The exchange could be compared to society and the individual. The repetitions give the listener an anchor to hold onto and cheap citrate generic sildenafil viagra recognize while the alternating solo elements give the listener variety and excitement.




Carl Nielsen: Symphony No. 2

by Susan Campbell


Completed in 1901-1902, Romantic.


About the composer: Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) was a mostly self-taught musician. He is considered by some to be Denmark’s most famous composer. Although he earned his main living as a section violinist for the Royal Chapel Theater in Copenhagen he was a rather prolific composer. In addition to the six symphonies that the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera will be performing this season he wrote many songs, chamber pieces and concertos. His music is generally optimistic in nature and very enjoyable.


About the work: The second symphony, subtitled “The Four Temperaments,” is the only programmatic work that Nielsen wrote. In contrast to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, which are about the weather, Neilsen explores the four “seasons of humanity”: the temperaments choleric, phlegmatic, melancholic, and sanguine.


About the music: The first movement is titled choleric, which in this instance means ambitious, and one can hear the incessant energy and drive throughout the movement. At times it sounds as though the different instruments are striving to climb to the top of some peak, stepping over the others as their eagerness rises.


The second movement, phlegmatic is relaxed and quiet. This movement is relatively short and invokes a feeling of repose with its leisurely tempo and listless melodies.


Melancholic – analytical and order viagra online a href thoughtful – is the topic of the third movement. The rhythms are very precise and contemplative with little variation.


The final movement is titled sanguine, evoking the pleasure-seeking and sociable mode of behavior. The tempo is again lively, with the violins playing party host, fluttering about trying to satisfy. Just after the repeat of the opening material we hear a minor tantrum: apparently all did not go as planned by the hosts this time. Out of the aftermath arises a very social and grand melodic display by the winds and brass.
