Fall in Love With Music

Is This Music?

Season 1, Episode 3 of 8

Viewers are asked to think about what are the most basic ingredients of music. Brief excerpts from the Gregorian Chant Victimae Paschali Laudes; the Medieval Song Quan vei la lauzeta mover; the 3rd movement of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3; 1st movement of Mozart's String Quartet, K. 387; 3rd movement of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No.2; 1st and 2nd movements of Bartok's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, and Desmond's Take Five, played by the Dan Crisci Jazz Quartet, are used to stimulate this thought process. Morton Subotnick's electronic music composition Silver Apples of the Moon is used to encourage speculation about what can be considered to actually be music... or not.
