Millennium Canons I wrote Millennium Canons to usher in a new millennium with fanfare, celebration and lyricism. Its rising textures and melodic counterpoint are almost always created through use of the canon, which also provides rhythmic propulsion at times.
He was referring of course to the beautiful concert march by English composer Edward Elgar, played at nearly every graduation ceremony in the country.
Violin Concerto in C major, Op. He wrote numerous songs for schools and summer camps many of which became immensely popular. Between and 52, Kabalevsky wrote three concertos for violin, cello, and piano, respectively for young artists.
The violin concerto was first performed by year-old Igor Bezrodny, who went on to have a distinguished career as a violin soloist and conductor. The youthful character of the concerto is also manifest in a straightforward and largely unproblematic musical style. The second movement is, surprisingly, in B-flat minor; it has a lyrical main theme and a capriccioso middle section in A major. The finale, whose melody oscillates between major and minor a device of which Kabalevsky was particularly fond includes a partially accompanied cadenza in which a solo flute takes over the melody while the violinist plays some rapid figurations.
The work ends with a fiery con fuoco coda. Three American Pieces , rev. Equally gifted as a composer, conductor, and pianist, he studied with such luminaries as Serge Koussevitzky and Paul Hindemith.
He achieved his first great success in with his cantata The Prairie on a poem by Carl Sandburg—a more American topic could hardly be imagined. The same year, Foss wrote what he initially called simply Three Pieces for violin and piano.
The work was premiered at Carnegie Hall by violinist Roman Totenberg with the composer at the piano. The reviews were positive, but the pieces were not frequently performed over the years, until Foss, at the height of his career, came back to them in the mids and made two new versions, one for flute and piano, and the other for flute or violin with orchestra.
At this point, the work was renamed Three American Pieces and recorded several times. In the finale, the composer let his hair down and produced a popular dance movement in the style of a hoedown.
I wish I could write that simple and straightforward American music now. The curtain rises on a street corner with a lamp-post, a side street bar, and New York skyscrapers pricked out with a crazy pattern of lights, making a dizzying backdrop. Three sailors explode onto the stage.
They are on hour shore leave in the city and on the prowl for girls. The tale of how they meet first one, then a second girl, and how they fight over them, lose them, and in the end take off after still a third, is the story of the ballet. In the original production, a jukebox played the popular tune "Big Stuff" before the rise of the curtain; the song was interrupted by the sudden entrance of the orchestra.
The first movement "Enter Three Sailors" presents the young men through jazzy rhythms and lively melodies. Next, in "Scene at the Bar," they are waiting for some action to begin, and sure enough, a "fast and hot" new melody begins, and "Enter Two Girls. Fancy Free was an instant success, and made Bernstein immediately famous as a composer.
His big break as a conductor had come a year earlier, in , when he replaced an ailing Bruno Walter at the New York Philharmonic and created the sensation of the century. Before the year was out, Bernstein had received another commission, this time for an evening-filling Broadway musical. This piece, On the Town, expanded on the story of the sailors and the girls in Fancy Free, but Bernstein wrote completely new music for it.
