Tenny's Tunes Ep 7 - Practice, Practice, Practice

Episode Notes [I. Shinji, 1997 Evangelion Symphony by the New Japan Philharmonic] Hi guys! Welcome to episode seven of Tenny’s Tunes. I am your host, Tenny. For the past couple episodes, we took a look at some of the greatest pieces composed during the Romantic period in the 19th century, from Rachmaninoff’s prelude to Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. In analyzing and learning to perform what many people like to broadly call “classical pieces,” there is a certain level of freedom for you to create your unique interpretations, but in the end, you are to pretty much obligated to follow the notations for changes in loudness or texture of the sound set forth by the composers. For me personally, I started off learning classical pieces on the piano by memorizing the music scores, so music theory didn’t occur to me as something really important until the time I took some of the music level assessments that required me to learn theory. Still, it was solely for the purpose of passing th...

Tenny's Tunes Ep 6 - Rimsky-Korsakov and the Arabian Nights

Episode Notes Hi guys! Welcome to episode six of Tenny’s Tunes. I am your host Tenny. Last time we discussed Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C Sharp Minor, which describes his very own funeral he dreamed of as a 19-year-old. It was said that the piece grew so much in popularity that Rachmaninoff himself grew sick of playing the piece every time someone in the audience asked him to perform it. This week, we follow the same logic by briefly exploring another piece of music so popular that anyone studying orchestral music should know. Scheherazade, composed in 1888 by the great Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov who lived from 1844 to 1908. A brief background before we introduce Scheherazade, which is playing in the background. Rimsky-Korsakov was a Russian composer and a member of The Five, a group of prominent 19th-century Russian composers who were working on creating a distinct Russian classical music genre at the time. In particular, Rimsky-Korsakov developed a nationalistic style of classical m...

Tenny's Tunes #5 - Rachmaninoff, Death at 19

Episode Notes (Clair de Lune, Debussy) Hi guys! Welcome to episode five of Tenny’s Tunes! I am your host, Tenny. Looking back, we have covered a variety of music, from popular Japanese anime original soundtracks to what I call the genre of online artists. The reason being, so many talented musicians exist on the Internet, showing off their unique styles, that attempting to attribute each one with a specific genre in music history is a tedious, if not impossible, job. Therefore, I thought to myself, why not define online artists in general as a new genre to make our lives easier? Okay, I am going off topic. The thing is, I realized we haven’t yet discuss what is considered a giant among the genres, and that is classical music. As you might have guessed, my parents and grandparents raised me up as a kid who learned to play classical pieces on the piano, like just about the rest of the five hundred million kids in the world. A common misconception is that people tend to refer to any ...

Tenny's Tunes Ep 4 - Childhood Idol, Case Closed

Episode Notes [Background: Thelonious Monk - Don’t Blame Me] Welcome to episode four of Tenny’s Tunes. I am your host, Tenny! Now, I wanna spend some time taking you back to childhood. Our childhood. In cognitive psychology, we learned that crystallized intelligence, such as skills, knowledge and experience, increases with age while fluid intelligence, the ability to assess and solve problems in novel circumstances, decreases as we grow older. This leads some people to believe that the mind of a child is way more creative than that of an adult’s. In other words, we can become smarter and wiser, but never more creative than our younger selves. Scientific studies have produced persuasive evidence for this argument. A 1968 creativity test on 1,600 children conducted by George Land and Beth Jarman demonstrated a sharp drop in creativity score, from 98 percent at 5 years of age to 12 percent at 15 years old, all the way down to 2 percent around 31 years old. A gradual decrease in the ...
