Gerald Finzi Music compositions Name Institutional Affiliation Date Gerald Finzi was a pacifist who believed that the prime representatives of civilization were the creative artists. He was better known as a music composer. He set many of his songs in an aria-like style. Finzi was neither a singer nor a pianist. His work was primarily focused on composing. Through his efforts Gerald became a role model for many performers and more importantly a champion of English from the nineteenth century. Two of his famous works are “In Terra Pax” and “Nocturne.” In Terra Pax was composed in 1953 while Nocturne was composed in the mid-1920’s (McVeagh His creative work still finds its place in this changing world where the taste of music has changed. His compositions were mostly choral but he sometimes made other genres. Gerald made few instrumental compositions except in his early career time. After Finzi's death his work continued to be promoted by his wife and the younger son who became a professional violinist.

Order Description:

Watch two videos featuring the performance of a twentieth century music composition. Your choices must be from the twentieth century classical tradition, such as solo, orchestral or chamber music performances, not pop, rock, or jazz. Please note that this assignment is not a 20th century performance of music from the Classical era - you should watch videos of music that was composed in the twentieth century. The music chosen for this assignment needs to have been written in the twentieth century, so it is important to not choose music that was composed before the twentieth century. Choose two compositions written by the same composer. The following is the list of composers you can use for this assignment. Jeanne Demessieux Harry T. Burleigh William Grant Still Arnold Bax Ralph Vaughan Williams Sergei Rachmaninoff Gustav Holst Arvo Pärt Henry Balfour Gardiner Gerald Finzi Nadia Boulanger Lili Boulanger Benjamin Britten Marcel Dupré Charles Ives Manuel de Falla Claude Debussy Maurice Ravel Augusta Read Thomas Bela Bartok Leonard Bernstein Aaron Copland Igor Stravinsky Arnold Schoenberg John Adams Dorothy Rudd Moore Philip Glass Morton Feldman Dmitri Shostakovich Ruth Crawford Seeger (Ruth Porter Crawford) Pierre Boulez Terry Riley For each of the two videos, discuss how each composition reflects the six basics of melody, harmony, texture, rhythm, timbre, and form. Please also address how the composer's music reflects the culture and/or time period in which he or she lived. Be sure to include links to the videos in your response. The videos should be cited in the body of the text and in a reference page.
