Musical genre

Genre (from French genre – genus) is a historically established division, the type of work in the unity of its form and content. They differ in the way of performance (vocal, vocal-instrumental, solo), purpose (applied, etc.), content (lyrical, epic, dramatic), place and conditions of performance (theater, concert, chamber, film music, etc.).

Choosing a Digital Piano

All digital pianos have a MIDI interface, thanks to which you can connect the instrument to a computer, which opens up unlimited possibilities for creating music. As a rule, in addition to the piano sounds themselves, most digital instruments have a variety of electric piano sounds (Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet, harpsichord, champagne, etc.) and the sound of a vibraphone. Samples of organs and stringed instruments are added to the preset a little less often. Also, many models are equipped with more or less powerful sequencers that can record your performance and play ready-made songs.

Naturally, it is difficult for an inexperienced person to understand such a variety, and our task will be to find the best option, both in terms of its capabilities and price. Continue reading

Cello history

Cello (Italian violoncello, abbreviated. Cello, German Violoncello, French violoncelle, English cello) – stringed string instrument of the bass and tenor register, known from the first half of the XVI century

The cello has the same structure as the violin, but much larger sizes. They play the cello while sitting, putting it in front of themselves and resting it on the floor with a special leg with a point (spire).

History is remembered by two masters, especially famous for the production of cello. This is Gasparo da Salo and Paolo Magini. They lived at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the first of them, folk rumor attributed the honor of “inventing” a modern violin with four strings, quinte moods, improving violone, or double bass violin and, finally, creating a cello. The first masters who built the cello did not quite clearly understand the right path in the development of modern cello, which was completely completed, only by Antonio Stradivari.
