Our Composer of the month is Vaughan Williams, a welsh man who wrote beautiful classical music. He liked writing music for large orchestras. Here is one of his pieces about a bird (a lark) who is flying up high in the sky (ascending). Sit back, close your eyes and have a listen! Let me know what you think!
This is a classical piece of music for an orchestra. There is one soloist who plays the violin by themselves at various parts of the piece. The soloist in this tune is called ‘Nigel Kennedy’. He is a very clever British violinist who started playing before he was 7 years old. He was a child prodigy which means that he was amazing at music from a very young age. He could listen to a piece of music and then go straight to a piano and play it, even when he didn’t know anything about music at all!
Here we have another piece of music, this time from an artist called Frank Sinatra. Here he is singing about his favourite place to go……NEW YORK!
Finally, some Flamenco….a Spanish tradition of music and dance. Have a little look at the video and think about the hot Spanish sun!
