The Pianist (2002) is a true story, based in 1944, about a Jewish pianist named Wladyslaw Szpilman. At the beginning of the film, the German Army had just taken control of Poland, and the film follows Wladyslaw’s journey as the Germans swiftly strip the Jews of their rights, relocate them to a ghetto, and dehumanize their entire community.
The show Hamilton, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, would be a great tool for teaching US History, namely from 1776 to 1800. The musical follows the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s Founding Fathers. Act I focuses on his pre- and mid-revolution life, while Act II details the remainder of his life, post-revolution. Not only does it provide a lot of valuable information on Hamilton, but it has plenty of information on other key individuals such as Aaron Burr, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. In addition, it presents the information in a unique, entertaining way with the usage of music that appeals to today’s youth. In short, this musical is a fun and interesting perspective on the beginning of America and many students would
We explored the aeolian scale when we composed our music. We also made sure to use the lyrics to a song that was around during the middle ages. Back in the middle ages there were only 2 types of music secular and religious. The secular music was written in the local language where as religious music was in latin. Secular music would have instruments playing but religious music would not have any instruments adding tune, but they would sometimes use a drum as a drone to help keep the beat. The piece we composed is similar to a religious middle ages peice of music. Our composition has a drone and latin lyrics we also used the aeolian scale which was a commonly used scale from the middle ages. Our composition also has polyphonic
The piece opens very quickly, with a quickening of the cello but it is suddenly interrupted with the piano in a deep key. The opening part of the piece has a significant amount of dissonance, bringing a sense of anxiety and desire for the piece to end. As it rises, the listener is both anxious for an ending and a resolution. The piano is this ending. The piece then picks up in a minor key, entering a more mystical and quiet place. The piano takes precedence with the cello sitting in the background yet when the listener thinks the pieces will be piano heavy, the cello takes over the piano withdraws to the background. The deep vibratos of the cello are contrasted with the light single key of the piano. This leads the listener to associate the cello with a lament and the piano for hope. The piano always closes the movement with a deep, somber key, suggesting that though hope is out there, there is still an air of sadness, of melancholy.

The piano concerto in the 1800s was still very standard. By 1850, the piano was still being used in a conventional manner. The two Brahms piano concerti are demonstrative of Brahms employing a classical, conservative style. The first concerto is in a traditional three movements, with a long orchestral introduction, a slow second movement, and a rondo finale. The second concerto came decades later and is in four movements. In the first movement, the piano interrupts the horn solo that begins the piece. The second movement is a scherzo. The slow third movement has a cello solo beginning the movement, giving a prominent role to the orchestra, not just the piano. The final movement goes back to tradition. Both concerti are exceedingly long, clocking in around fifty minutes.
After Hayden Listened to Beethoven’s new symphony called, Eroica, he specifically said, “Everything is different from today”. I think what he meant by saying this is that music was going to have a drastic change because other composers would try and top his symphony. It was extremely different from current symphonies, and it made the audience feel the mood of the music which no one had done before.
It starts out with a sax along with drums giving it rhythm. It soon slows down stays slowed for while. The sax and drums makes for some enjoyable tunes. The song then picks up again giving the song something extra. I like how the song changes a lot and there is great variety in the song along with catchy

The film The Pianist, directed by Roman Polanski uses many significant scenes throughout the film to portray certain themes and ideas to the audience, however I found one scene in which Szpilman is playing for life. Polanski uses aspects including lighting, camera angles and shots, and character actions, to emphasise the importance of this scene, and to portray the theme of “it’s possible to retain hope through music”. And “it is unfair to call a nation completely evil or completely good”
I, Ludwig van Beethoven want to thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for watching me grow musically and personally. My life has been fun of musical highs and success and I appreciate you for allowing me to be me. I was born on or about December 16, 1770 in the city of Bonn in the Electorate of Cologne, a principality of the Holy Roman Empire. Although the exact date of birth is uncertain, I was baptized on December 17, 1770.
New Zealand during the 1850s was a time where European settler populations were beginning to outnumber the native Maori populations which resulted in a major cultural divide. Jane Campion, the director of The Piano, was able to use this temporal setting and the two contrasting cultures to allow her audience to explore the film through the critical perspectives of social class and gender/feminist.
The Pianist is a film directed by Roman Polanski that took place in Poland, in the year 1939, and was based on the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman. Szpilman was a Polish-Jewish pianist that played live on the radio in Warsaw. The story follows Szpilman as he and his family struggle to live through the German occupation of Warsaw in World War II. Szpilman and his family are forced to adapt to the new rules and discrimination of the Nazi regime. They are later forced to move to the Warsaw ghetto with the rest of the Jewish population, which was over 400,000 people(United States Holocaust Memorial Museum "Warsaw"). After a few years, Szpilman’s family was put on a train going to a concentration camp, however a Jewish police officer saved Szpilman and let him escape. The film then tells of the harsh times Szpilman spent in hiding in the Warsaw ghetto and the people that hid and fed him. Wladyslaw Szpilman was played by Adrien Brody, who won an Oscar for his amazing performance in the film. The Pianist demonstrates the timeline and conditions of Warsaw through German behavior towards the Jews, subtleties in the background, and the change in mood through the color tones.
