I never use sheet music, so I don’t know. Again, I did this from solely listening to the piece and trying to copy it. 🙂 i think it moves in octaves in the bass (cello and double basses). the violas probably move in sixths with the violins. i seriously doubt that samuel barber wrote parallel fifths throughout this piece. they have a certain sound to them that isnt present in adagio. very cool. amazing piece. do you have lights in your home? This is not my home; this is at my college. The lights were off intentionally. 🙂 =) i really like it.. thanx for posting … Nice playing and good arranging! To answer your question: the bass moves in octaves and 5ths through the piece. They occur in different sections, but they are there – my college sang the Agnus Dei transcription of the piece this year. Good old Barber and good old contemporary music; throwing the rules away to compose a phenomenal piece of music! Keep up the good work!! Nice playing and good arranging! To answer your question: the bass moves in octaves and 5ths through the piece. They occur in different sections, but they are there – my college sang the Agnus Dei tranion of the piece this year. Good old Barber and good old contemporary music; throwing the rules away to compose a phenomenal piece of music! Keep up the good work!! Only in late Renaissance, Barouque, classical and early romantic, or, in other words, common practice period, are parallel 5th or 4ths (even octaves) to be avoided. But in mid to late romantic (or starting with Debussy) and until now are they exceptable; parallel motion is. Why? Becasue during the common practice period, the foundation of harmony was according to the rules of strict conterpoint, which stressed contrary motion, especially in to the soprano (melody) and bass. Moreover, direct approches to octave and fifth,. especially in in s/b, was considered poor voice leading and an error. However, the composer had liberty to break these rules when the music dictated such especially at cadencial points. send a video on how to play it please! Is this paul mc cartney in let it be becuase as a child i rem,eber this song being played and havent watched the film since……. depressing aiiz nice work could you please send me the sheet music for this song?? Its from samuel barber. song was composed and played in 1936. The most famous movie this piece was used in was „Platoon“ by Oliver Stone. I used no sheet music. I simply listened to the piece, jotted down a few notes, and played. I know that but paul mc cartney played it in a film and i want to know if this was that…. you think i wouldnt know that i am a vietnam reinactor 😛 lol.. i want to hear that paul’s version too! So if you find it, mail it to me if you want. Amazing, maybe make a tutorial on how to play the simple melody? depressing yet calming. very beautiful piece. 5/5 I like the video especially, dark and calm… the playing is also beautiful Hey, If I woke up at 3:30 AM in a cold sweat having to play a tune, I’d play in the dark too……Scare the s*it out my parents playing this music while they sleep…. LOL…… p.s. Play by ear FTW!!!!!! mite see if any gd scores for this out there.. must be now this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I’m taking piano lessons. I want this power, the power to make people laugh and cry, hope and dream. This is power, not political, not arms or weapons, but pure spiritual power. @BigBrotherMateyka That explains the plethora of misconceived chords and phrases @BigBrotherMateyka That explains the plethora of misconceived chords and phrases and the wrong opening chord Kommentare sind geschlossen.
