How is the title of “‘Italian’ Concerto” derived?
who’s the composer? for which orchestration is it scored? when was it written? Otherwise you’re asking “what’s the name of this american team?” without any of the pertinent information.

Yr question is vague and I’m not sure to which Concerto Italiano you’re referring.However I’ve 2 options :The Italian Concerto (properly entitled Concerto in the Italian Style and this is the reason of its name), BWV 971, is a three-movement solo harpsichord concerto composed by Johann Sebastian Bach in 1735. The work was published as part of Clavier-Übung II, along with the French Overture. The Italian Concerto has become quite popular among Bach’s keyboard works, and has been widely recorded both on the harpsichord and the piano.Its three movements are as follows:Without tempo indication—usually indicated asAllegro Andante Presto The Italian Concerto’s two lively F major outer movements, in a ritornello style, frame a central arioso-style movement in the relative minor, D minor.Though a concerto by definition relies upon the contrasting roles of different groups of instruments in an ensemble, Bach achieves a similar effect by creating contrasts using the forte and piano manuals of a two-manual harpsichord alternatively throughout the piece. (Bach also transcribed real Italian concertos by Vivaldi and others (BWV 972-987) for solo harpsichord (and others for solo organ or pedal harpsichord.Concerto Italiano is also an Italian early music ensemble well-known for their interpretations of Monteverdi and Vivaldi, among others.The historically informed performance ensemble was formed by the harpsichordist Rinaldo Alessandrini, and made its Rome debut with Francesco Cavalli’s La Calisto in 1984. Since then, Concerto Italiano has recorded Monteverdi madrigals, which have won numerous awards, including the Gramophone Award three times. Other major international awards garnered by this ensemble include Preis der deustschen Schallplattenkritik, Prix de la Nouivelle Academie du disque, Premio internationale del disco Antonio Vivaldi (Cini Foundation), and the Prix de l’Academie Charles Cros.Concerto Italiano is under exclusive contract with OPUS 111, which is now under the umbrella of the large French label, Naive. Most recently, with conjunction with the National University Library in Turin, Concerto Italiano has been recording all the operas and concertos of Vivaldi, many of which have not been performed for over 300 years. Highlights include Concerto Italiano’s recordings of the opera L’Olympiad, La Senna Festeggiante, La Quattro Stagioni (hailed as one of the best versions of the work by Gramophone), a reconstruction of a possible Vespers for the Ascension of the Virgin Mary (Vespri per l’Assunzione), and in 2004, an entire CD devoted to Vivaldi’s Concerti per Archi.

help me with my piano audition choices! ill love you forever? I am planning on minoring in piano and I am now preparing what to play for my audition this fall/winter. These are the guidelines:*a work of at least six minutes in duration*or a slow and fast movement from a multi-movement work*or two selections from different historical style periodsok. So I was thinking of playing Beethoven Sonata 6 Op 10 No.2. Is this piece too easy for a college audition? Perhaps another Sontata?I also have played through debussy’s children corner, grieg lyric pieces, chopin preludes and waltzes, and a few mozart sonatas In your opinion what would make a killer audition? and do your pieces have to be memorized?
It is too easy. Do Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, all three movements, or possibly some of Chopin’s etudes and concertos. These are long enough, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata is especially long enough and has enough movements. Chopin’s Allegro Concerto is one piece, but has many movements, and usually takes at least 14 minutes to play. Allegro Concerto, including the other Chopin Concerto, is also at a great difficulty level. Consider buying the music, or go to so you can print up free sheet music for the piano from a variety of wonderful composers.Best wishes, and good luck with minoring in the piano.

Having been a student, and a teacher, and an examiner, I recommend two pieces in contrasting styles. Choose pieces that are not so commonly done (ie: please people, can we all give the “moonlight” sonata a bit of a rest for about 100 years. Pick one from each of the following lists:List 1Haydn Piano Sonata No.50 Hob.XVI:37, D major:,_D_major_(Haydn,_Joseph). (Don’t be fooled by the seemingly simple appearance of this work; it’s a real challenge to play it well, and it’s utterly delightful.)Bach Prelude from English Suite No.2 in A minor, BWV 807:,_BWV_806-811_(Bach,_Johann_Sebastian)Bach 1st or 3rd movement from the Italian Concerto:,_BWV_971_(Bach,_Johann_Sebastian)List 2:Debussy Passepied from Suite Bergamasque:,_Claude)Brahms Romanze, Op 118, No.5:ücke,_Op.118_(Brahms,_Johannes) (SO gorgeous)Ravel Sonatine, 1st movement:,_Maurice) (also gorgeous!)I would not think it necessary to perform from memory unless explicitly directed to. However, if you have the time to commit your pieces to memory, it’s always beneficial.I’ll say again, because I think it’s important: stay away from the standard fare that examiners must listen to 100s of times, student after student. Give them something interesting to listen to and to work with. That way, they are critiquing you and your performance, not you and your performance as compared to the 50 other people who just played the same thing.Good luck.
