Music of the 18th Century
Derived from the Portuguese barroco, or “oddly shaped pearl,” the term “baroque” has been widely used since the nineteenth century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750. Comparing some of music history’s greatest masterpieces to a misshapen pearl might seem strange to us today, but to the nineteenth century critics who applied the term, the music of Bach and Handel’s era sounded overly ornamented and exaggerated (Hosler, 27).
A magnificent classical composer, Johann Sebastian Bach is revered through the ages for his work's musical complexities and stylistic innovations. Born on March 21, 1685, in Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany, Johann Sebastian Bach had a prestigious musical lineage and took on various organist positions during the early 18th century, creating famous compositions like "Toccata and Fugue in D minor." Some of his best-known compositions are the "Mass in B Minor," and the "Brandenburg Concertos". The Brandenburg Concertos are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt. They are widely regarded as some of the best orchestral compositions of the Baroque era. Most likely, Bach composed the concertos over several years while Kapellmeister at Köthen, and possibly extending back to his employment at Weimar (Boyd, 14-47).
Each Brandenburg follows the...
...occurred in my life recently. Two days ago, I attended a baroque sinfonia at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, directed by Adam Gilbert, director of the early music program. The program consisted of selections from The Fairy Queen, originally composed by Henry Purcell. The overall performing environment was quite outstanding. It was great that the performers were on an elevated stage, making it much easier to see and hear them. It’s always crucial to be able to make eye contact with the performers in order to establish a personal connection with them. The event was very well attended. All the seats were practically filled causing some of the audience to stand up because there was no room. Overall, the audience seemed to be educated and had a great deal of knowledge on the music that was being performed. Also, the musical program was well organized, being consisted of five acts. The program passed out to the audience consisted a libretto, a text of all the words and stage directions of a piece, which made it much more easier to understand what was occurring on stage at the moment. The instruments I encountered at this concert were the violin, viola, cello, violone, harpsichord, lute, theorbo, guitar, oboe, bassoon, trumpet and recorder. Fortunately, I had learned about most of these instruments and what they sound like in my music class, so I was able to identify which instrument was being...
...the largest number of listeners is probably due to the music that our peers and parents knowingly or unknowingly exposed us to when we were younger.
After careful review of the elements of music in relation to “Meet Me in Montauk”, I was able to determine which one accentuates this piece the most. In my opinion, I believe that the dynamics is what generates the feelings emitted when listening to this song. The song is played in mezzo piano, which means it is not loud nor soft, but somewhere in between. Dynamics have set the melancholy feel even more than the harmony itself. While the harmony in minor key is vital, it only brings out the piece to a certain extent. On the other hand, dynamics are the reason why the song has a resonating neutral tone. For example, the Star Spangled Banner could be played fortissimo which gives the feeling of superiority, while on the other hand it could be played piano which would completely alter the attitude. After seeing this song being played live by the band and then comparing it to the studio version, I was able to tell instantaneously that the disposition of the song changed completely. Live, the track sounded somewhat brighter as Anthony Green sang louder and the guitars were more audible compared to the gloominess of the original. This is what dynamics are really all about, setting the feeling to a song and music in...
...Chinese music, aesthetics and cross-cultural context has aroused great interest of me within the first three lectures. With the help of the previous readings, I was able to get absolute involved in the following highly-organized lectures and make critical thinking towards the ideas that conveyed. Throughout the time, I was not only trained to acquire basic knowledge about Chinese history and music, but also taught to discover some philosophical ideas through culture and music. Because all the three main ideas, which is Chinese music, aesthetics and cross-cultural context, have run through the previous progressive explanations, the reflection of my harvest will be methodized into those three aspects with one critical thinking part added.
1. Broadened perspectives towards music and prevention of stereotype due to ignorance
The discussion about the criteria for defining music broadens my perspectives and gives inspiration. Because music involves not only sound, but also deeper expression and communication, the definition of music is much beyond the components such as melody, harmony and rhythm. It actually embodies uniqueness and distinctiveness of people, performs within certain culture and address certain theme such as worldview and value. Therefore, the subject of both composition and appreciation, the standard for definition as well as the cultural and...

Fast Food Mania
What ever happened to a home cooked meal? Dinner time in a household was once special and food was prepared by people who actually cared about what they served. About a generation ago, more than half of the meals consumed were prepared at home. Today, a majority of the meals we eat are prepared by strangers who could care less about our health as long as they receive a paycheck. Our fast paced society no longer values the simple things of the past and the food that we eat today is just the tip of the iceberg. I found my mind wondering today as I researched this topic. Despite my opposition, a craving for a McDonald’s cheeseburger gripped my senses and would not let go. Fast food is like a drug and it is all around us. Unfortunately, most of us are addicts and do not even realize it. In Fast Food Nation: The True Cost of America’s Diet (1998), Eric Schlosser reports that “Americans now spend more money on fast food than they do on higher education, personal computers, software or new cars” (3). Despite the obscene amount of cash Americans spend on fast- food, it is our bodies and economy that ultimately end up paying the price.
Obesity and diabetes in adults and children is prevalent in the United States today, thanks in part to fast- food. Fast- food is cheap, tasty, convenient, and loaded with saturated fat and calories. Unfortunately, minorities are usually hit the hardest and many do not have access to adequate...

“Be the Manager” Essay 1
As the new manager of a major clothing store that is currently facing a crisis, it is my job to answer, resolve, and communicate with my fellow managers and employees. I have analyzed what has happened to the task environment of this store; low sales and poor customer service. With sales dropping to a mere 30% due to competition and supply, I have devised a program that will help the managers, employees, and most importantly the store.
Surveyed customers said that our store wasn’t keeping up with changing fashion as well as new trends. To better construe this issue I have set training sessions for our purchasing managers giving them an insight on what to look for when contacting suppliers and to be less risk averse. These sessions and classes will help our PM’s get familiar with current fashion trends and how to keep up with this fast pace economy. We have been in contact with the same suppliers for quite a while which has probably become why this store’s inventory is being viewed by customers as not in style. To help resolve this problem, I have split the purchasing managers into two categories. Half of the PM’s will focus mainly on keeping all clothing, accessories, etc up to date. The other half will be set to find and be more progressive when selecting new suppliers. By doing so, I wish to see improvement in sales and positive customer feedback.
Furthermore, there has been...
