Dance of the Hours composed by Amilcare Ponchielli’s from his opera La Gioconda takes us on a journey through the hours of the day. We will be reviewing three versions of this composition where the ballet through dance and costume, the orchestra through music, and staging or film techniques assist in representing the hours in a day (dawn, morning, twilight and night). These three previously recorded versions in review are in the forms of classical, modern, and Disney’s Fantasia version of the ballet.
A lucent crescent of the moon is seen on the top right hand corner of the painting where dramatic contours and fluidity of the brushworks are seen due to the Japonisme influences. Moreover, the eleven stars and the rolling hills are depicted moving to the momentum of the swirling sky.
Rudolf Laban was first recognised for his dedication to supporting the movement of expressionist dance (also known as Ausdruckstanz), which had a big effect on the culture of movement as it changed the artistic stagnation of classical ballet and the maturity within the future of art. This movement arose in the 1900’s and was a protest against classical ballet which was perceived as tightly held and mechanical in fixed and conventional forms. This changed movement to become free and natural, allowing more flow and openness to arise. Rudolf Laban was considered a significant figure within this movement as he influenced the younger youth, teaching at a creative art school called Monte Verita situated in Switzerland. Laban became a key figure based off of his metaphysical ideas regarding his exploration of time and space within movement which further developed later in his career. Without Laban’s teaching skills and inspiring the next generations, classical ballet wouldn’t have as much meaning
Right now I want to introduce this work with more detail information. This band work of Scenes from the Louvre created for the original film score for the 1964 documentary. Scenes from The Louvre was premiered March 13, 1966, conducted by the composer. So there are five movements in this works. The first one is an introduction focus on the film score. Another three movements are based on the Renaissance tunes. The movement 2 called Children’s Gallery is a theme based on Tielman Susato’s “Ronde and Saltarello.” Themes by court composers Jean Baptiste Lully and Pietro Antonio Cesti serve as a base for movement 3, “The King of France,” a chorale and development. Movement 4, “The Nativity Paintings,” is based on “In delci jubilo;” the same theme used by Dello Joio in “Variants on a Medieval Tune” and for all thirteen movements of “Colonial Variants.” The final movement, “Finale,” is based on Albrici’s “Cestiliche Sonate.” Primarily written around the keys of C, G and F
Whether we look at a romantic ballet like La Sylphide or a classical ballet such as Sleeping Beauty, audiences are constantly mesmerized by the gracefulness and weightlessness of the ballet dancers. They seem to defy the laws of physics, which is greatly possible due to the use of the pointe shoe. However, many masterworks that were created in the Romantic era did not solely rely on the pointe shoe to help convey messages. Instead, the choreography, dancers, scenic elements, subject matter, and music all helped shaped masterworks such as La Sylphide, Napoli, and Giselle. Similarly, in the Classical era, these elements all played a role in shaping famous ballets like La Bayadere, Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake. But once we take a closer look at these ballets from the Classical era, we can see how much ballet evolved. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the Romantic era was the stepping stone for this pure art form that we have been able to preserve for more than 160 years.
Since the first brush stroke was taken in Europe, the paintings that have been produced have played a vital role in revealing our world 's past, history, religion and daily lives of its citizens. Each time period and movement have influenced artists from its first existence to even this very day, creating an extraordinary timeline of art and history as one. Frans Hals ' Merrymakers at Shrovetide of 1615 and Francois Boucher 's Interrupted Sleep of 1750 are no exception. Despite their different time periods and movements, the two paintings each have many parallels and at the same time very distinct styles which play on how influential artists ' styles are upon each other. Even with all of the differences and similarities, both paintings are

Analyze the differences in leisure activities shown in the two paintings, and reflect about the social life of peasants (The Peasant Dance) and of urban dwellers in the 19th century (Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grande Jatte).

Stylistically, his painting is an example of the “smooth” manner, characterized by fine technique in the portrayal of illusionistic form. In this painting, Calabrese uses strong directional lighting from the top, left corner of the painting to highlight the scene. It is Caravagesque in the way

The artists Jean-Honore Fragonard and Jaques-Louis David both successfully embody their respective stylistic differences. Fragonard’s style of painting is Rococo, which is characterized by its softness, asymmetry and curviness. Contrasting these ideals is David’s style of painting, Neo-Classicism. Neo-Classicism is synonymous with strong gestures, symmetry, and solidness. Two works that best exemplify the ideals of each style of painting are Fragonard’s The Swing, 1767 and David’s The Death of Socrates, 1787. Although at first glance, it is easier to focus on how each work is different to the other, one can argue that they are similar in theme. Both
He creates this dance-like feel in a variety of ways. Firstly, the 2/4 time signature makes the music feel upbeat compared to the 4/4 time signature of the rest of the piece. Secondly, the sforzando accent on the first beat of every bar drives the music onwards. Also the catchy, short and rhythmic melody is lively and metronomic. Finally the fiddle-like manner in which the violins play creates a sense of a dance. There are unexpected changes and dramatic dynamic changes throughout the trio which are both romantic qualities. The fact that this movement moves seamlessly into the next is also romantic.
