My Favorite Things -Brahms-

Knowing that I’m going to berlin this weekend, I needed to do some research on one of my favorite German composer that made beautiful music with a strong sense of melody— Mendelssohn. 

Mendelssohn is famous for the wedding song, midnight summer night’s dream or songs without words. however he is one of the less appreciated composers due to his lack of popularity during Nazi Germany. The Nazi’s prohibited Mendelssohn due to his jewish background and therefore was pushed back in the popularity.

However, listening to his music today that was composed in the 19c, you hear and enjoy the beautiful melody. Coming from a wealthy family and very little difficulty during his childhood most of his music is pleasant and light. He was considered a prodigy during his youth and lived in Berlin although traveled to London upto 20 times in his lifetime. Also reintroduced Bach, Schubert, Schumann into society as something worthwhile to listen to. 

Personality wise, he was seen as aloof like many in high society, but also had many fits when he lost his temper. 

He lived his life time along with composers such as Liszt, Wagner, and Berlioz. 

Fun facts for traveling to berlin

  • Mendelssohn studied at the Humblodt University of Berlin
  • Burried at the Trinity Cemetery

My Favorite Things -Debussy-

As part of being a curious individual, I decided to do some research and write some comments on things that I like. In a way, I think that knowing more about the things you like makes your life richer and yourself more interesting. 

So today I want to start with one of my favorite composers, Debussy. Beginning this endeavor the few things I knew about him were the following:

  • He was a early 20th century composer
  • Used impressionist techniques to write music
  • Colorful sounds
  • French
  • Pieces: Arabesque, Clair du lune, Prelude, Estampes 

However, with gruesome but interesting research I found more interesting things about him. In terms of techniques, he used a form called chromaticism that ignores parts of tonality that was tied strongly to other composers during this time period. Whole tone scales(no starting or ending point) and pentatonic scale was also used heavily(only 5 notes instead of 7). He was heavily influenced by Wagner and worked along with Satie. Suite bergamasque is one o the earlier and famous pieces composed by Debussy that includes claire du lune. 

More on his life and inspirations to come.

Cien Años de soledad Chp 1

Review

En este capítulo, hemos visto la vida en Macondo. La gente no sabe el mundo otra que Macondo. La separación entre el mundo afuera y el mundo dentro crea la distancia entre el nivel de ciencia. Los gitanos son los únicos recursos para obtener la información.

Aurlenio Buendía es uno de los hombres en Macondo. Sin embargo en comparación con los otros hombres que no saben no quieren saber mucho, Aurelino Buendia tiene mucho interés en la ciencia y las cosas que Macondo no sabe. Por eso, cada vez los gitanos vienen, Aurelino Buendía trata a aprender algo nuevo y luego, experimentar con los nuevos ideas hasta que los hombres vayan. En el proceso, podemos ver la particularidad del hombre Aurelinao Buendía y también la insolación de esta ciudad.

Alberto Fujimori, a japanese/ peruano dictator in Peru till early 2000s has much more charisma than all the other Japanese politicians other than maybe Koizumi.
I oppose and detest what Fujimori has done in terms of human rights but it just keeps me questioning what lacks in Japanese politicians these days.
