On a summer evening, when I was at home, the intercom rang.I thought that it might be a solicitation of sales or religion anyway, and decided to stay away, but there is a sound of posting something to the door post somehow.I was a little curious and checked the post… It was an advertisement in the cemetery.
How did visitors come in 19th-century Europe?I wonder if the entrance of any house was accompanied by a so-called "door knocker" (like a lion barking at a ring).I'm always curious, but in the Western movie scene, when a customer tells me to visit, I hit the door wildly.I think that even the people in the house might feel sick because of the noise, but I wonder if it is a custom after all.The house is big, so you may not notice it if you don't hit it hard.I used my visitors away, but mozart opened the door in response to a knock on the door at the end of August 1791, and at the request of "a tall, thin man dressed in gray," he set about making his last work, Requiem.
Mozart seems to be the person who wrote the most biography in history.It is written so in one book without any basis, and I believe it in a way that is convenient for my belief, but it may be written Beethoven in other books.It is no doubt that at least a few biographies have been written.It's because his life is mysterious, for example, why he was covered in debt at the end, how was his membership in Freemasonry affecting his work, and what was the cause of death after all? New theories appear one after another and disappear.It is a kind of historical mystery that looks like pursuing the truth of the strangeness of Honnoji Temple.
Why is "research on Mozart's life" still so gorgeous?Needless to say, he is popular with his songs, attractive, and "because he was a genius composer who remains in human history," but I think we should take another step and answer this – "he died at the best time."
The "best time" here is not social success.It is the ability as a composer.
Mozart was a "child" when he was young.He was taken to Europe by his father Leopold and sold his name as a prodigy.By that, Leopold is spreadthed the image of a vicious old man who earns money with a child as a dashi, but the world, that to experience the music of Italy, which was the cutting edge of the fashion, It was the best way to educate at the time (thanks to traveling around the world, Mozart was able to use five different languages, and he was able to acquire the knowledge of being an international person).However, his fame as a priest was mainly a key player, and it was not recognition as the kind of "composer" that the work he wrote as a child became a big hit.Of course, it is the one of the kind of "Hey, it is wonderful to be able to write such a tune though it is a child" though it is amazing that the work written in the boyhood is amazing, and it is not possible to call all the early works a masterpiece.
On the other hand, his creative ability from around the age of 20 is, in a word, very good.The quality of the company is getting higher and higher towards his later years.The final movement of "41 (Jupiter)", which is considered to be the last symphony, makes me goosebumps just by reading the score.It's not just that the sound is beautiful, but the fact that it came out one after another overlapped all at once on the last three pages, and it didn't break down as if it were.When it comes to here, it is a bakemono-jime.
What kind of genius is Mozart when he grows up?The splendor of the melody, the beauty of harmony, and the beauty of harmony, but it is not to ignore the skillfulness of "organizing" which brings together those elements in a very natural way.
Let's go back to the "Requiem" mentioned at the beginning here.It is a suite form, and the organization is choral, brass and timpa two, and the string instrument (i.e. orchestra).Mozart died in the middle of the completion of this song, and only the first song "Intotrotus" was made up of all of them by himself.Because it was a work just before he died, he should have been physically weak, and the level of the song was also… It is a big mistake though it seems to think.It is a work of the perfection that God was able to think well.
First, the string instrument begins to accompany.Buncha, Buncha, seemingly common accompaniment.However, here is the beginning of a counter-position legal chorus part written using a melody commonly known as the "Requiem Theme".
Let's sort it out for a moment.The counterpoint method is a "calligraphy in which each voice is treated equally", for example, their role is basically equal if four people are singing, who is the leading role and who is a supporting role, and there is no division (commonly referred to as polyphony).This calligraphy was most popular in the era called the Renaissance, but the master of the most anti-position method after all is the master Bach who appeared in the "Baroque period" later than that.
On the other hand, the so-called "classical age" in which Mozart played an active part was a time when the style (called homophony) in which the supporting role of accompaniment snuggled up to the leading role of melody became commonplace.In a word, the style of music has undergone a considerable transformation in the flow of the history.
Then, let's think about requiem again.To put the shape of the song described earlier very simply, it is "a state in which Mozart is accompanied by a bunchofa and a bunchofa to Bach's song".This seems to be fun at first glance, and in fact it requires a very advanced composition technique.
However, the song never ends with this.Before long, when the orchestral part including the string instrument begins the counterpoint legal movement (Fugue) this time, the melody of the single melody (which is able to reverse the requiem subject of the previous) is taken there this time.In a word, the accompaniment becomes a counterlevel method this time.In addition, when it ends one way, a tremendous world of the double fugue which advances while the theme of the requiem theme and the aforementioned fugue is formed while intertwining, and it is supported by a classical accompaniment.
In a confusing way, it's a fusion of classical homophonies and renaissance and baroque polyphonies, and it's very interesting from the flow of history.I even remember the feeling that the composer himself is at a turning point in music history.How can you write a song like this just before you die?I wonder who played the role of letting him write this song, who had no life left.If you start saying such a thing, it will become a religion.However, if Mozart lived a long life, gradually declined in creativity, and in his later years there was no shadow to see the glitter of his heyday (there are many of those people), whether he had won so much popularity.Dying at the peak is a condition that leaves a name in history.
By the way… As I wrote at length (I want to change the flow of the story, it is honorific from here), but what I want to say this time is about a count.Earl of Franz von Valzek.This person ordered a requiem from Mozart, so to speak, his client.The first thing I mentioned was, "A tall, thin man in gray clothes", is the count's errand.This Count, I'm a lord of the countryside, but there is a little bit of a thing, and I ask a professional to do a work later, and I'm going to announce it by saying "I wrote it" (such a person, there was, a few years ago), This requiem was commissioned for the funeral of the Count's wife, and the name of the true composer was scheduled to premiere face down.
Mozart still becomes the subject of debate whether he knew or didn't know about it, but in general, the theory that "I didn't know" seems to be powerful.But I think I knew that.Looking at the life of the great Mozart, I know that he was a person who was very difficult with his fundamental character, or who was prone to various troubles.Especially in the bad place, there is a place that makes a fool of a person very much.It angers the aristocrats here and there, and Clementi is a composer who is often said, and in the overture of the opera "The Magic Flute", the motif of the piano sonata is blatantly diverted.This is not that Mozart plagiarism, but "I can do it better at all even with the same motif!!"There is a meaning close to the declaration like that (although of course it is finished in a wonderful work), and the guts are bad at all.
Mozart's youngest son, named Franz Xaver, takes the name of Juicemeyer, a disciple known as a requiem complement.In other words, he suspected his wife Constante and Juice Meyer's affair, and he purposely named him in disgust.It's really your child (by the way, this son was known as Mozart II after he came of age, and there are still portraits, but he has the exact same ear shape as Mozart (the earlobe was a little missing) and the characteristics seem to be inherited splendidly).
Anyway, it's Mozart who has very bad guts. I think it's also possible to think of requiem like this.He knew that Count Valzek would publish the Requiem in his own name.Therefore, I made a work using advanced technology that amateur musicians in the country could not write at all, and if the person who listens to it listens, it might have made it to be a substitute for Moro. Of course, there is no evidence or evidence.But it's fun to imagine such a thing.
Well, in this way, it is also a condition of a great person to be able to interpret the footprints in any way.You can accept diversity.You can't do that without depth in the work you've accomplished.This time, I will write some textabouting about music for the HP of my long-time ally, Mr. Inaoka.With Mozart as the axis, I would like to focus on the diversity of masterpieces.
Don't lower your value.
That's a particularly important point.
If you don't, you'll be done.
There is a great chance for the most sassy man.
