Impressionism

Impressionism (French: impressionnisme, from impression – impression), the direction in art of the last third of the XIX – beginning of XX centuries.

The application of the term “impressionism” to music is largely arbitrary – musical impressionism does not constitute a direct analogy to impressionism in painting and does not coincide chronologically with it (its heyday was the 90s of the 19th century and the 1st decade of the 20th century).

Old oboe

Tubes with single or double tongues are known, apparently, from ancient times. The oldest surviving instruments of this type are two silver pipes found in the Sumerian royal cemetery in Ur and dating to 2800 BC. These tubes paired and had double tongues. Later, similar tubes made of metal, wood or bone appeared in Egypt, Asia Minor, Greece, India and the Far East. The main wind instrument in Ancient Greece was Avlos (the ancient Roman name is Tibia), often incorrectly called a flute. It consisted of two tubes with double tongues, which were played simultaneously, with one of the tubes giving a monotonous bass accompaniment for the other. A similar bourdon accompaniment has become a distinctive feature of another instrument with a double tongue – bagpipes. Ancient pipes became the forerunners of reed instruments of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Continue reading

Irish dances

The green island, as Ireland is often called, is widely known throughout the world for its fiery, cheerful motifs. Irish dance is a charge of fun, positive and good mood – it is impossible to calmly sit still when such energetic music sounds that makes your legs go to dance.

When adopting Christianity, they did not lose their popularity, on the contrary, they harmoniously blended into the new religion, being used in festivities and even Christian rites.

Fast and fun dances have become popular not only in the homeland, but also abroad. But after the advent of English power, they were banned, which, however, served as a new impetus for their development, rather than vice versa. Continue reading
