Tip 1: How to understand classical music


classical music, usually does not come by itself, it is necessary to develop.For example, imagine the average person who sees only the primary colors - red, yellow, green, etc.But in addition to these colors, there are a variety of shades of the color palette.When a man begins to distinguish these nuances, it develops a more subtle perception.Developing an understanding of classical music, you are setting up your perception in unison with the beauty and harmony.
Nowadays attitude to classical music mixed.Lovers of classical music is considered that without it is unthinkable cultural and spiritual development, which forms an educated person.In turn, opponents of the "classics" argue that for modern man, this music is outdated.By the way, most people perceive "classics" biased, as something boring, boring and very long, and most importantly - is unclear.
What prevents understand (or accept) to classical music?In general, these three things.Firstly, the inability to
listen.It is important to understand the difference between classical music from any other.Every music has its purpose: for one can dance ("pokolbasitsya"), under the other - to relax, lose adrenaline and etc.Classical Music - this is not the background, it is necessary to delve into.The main problem is lack of understanding of "serious" music - is laziness.
second reason why join the "classics" - a modern, dynamic pace of life.The big problem for many - lack of time, lack of desire to delve into something where you just want to relax.It takes a long time to do that, you need to run somewhere, that is,fuss.But if we analyze, which takes most of the free time, it turns out that something is not quite right.For example, transmission or viewing of the series on TV, some "nenapryazhno" comedy to relieve the brain.
classical music just makes it possible, at least temporarily to "rise above the vanity," to separate the important from not so important, necessary from the unnecessary.To do this, apart from their cases, problems, ideas and immerse themselves in the music.If you can not do it, try a method called "inner music".To do this tune to the song's tempo, its rhythm, volume, etc., enter into resonance with it.Fully concentrate on the sensations that occur when listening to music and immerse yourself in the experience.That is, observing the sensations and feelings, as if you are listening to music is not, and within yourself.
third reason why you may not be prepared to understand classical music - it's unpreparedness.However, the argument that this understanding will come by itself, is not entirely true.As you know, musical taste is formed since childhood.For example, if parents want to develop the child's taste in music, preferably at an early age to attach it to classical music.It should start with the simple to the child's perception of the compositions.
classical music better join gradually.Listen to those songs that are pleasing to your ears and do not cause overt rejection.For example, it may be the composition of a series of "Masterpieces of classical music."You can select the "Classics in the instrumental / contemporary treatment."Although this is a dubious choice if you really want to listen to classical music, but for the beginning may come.
not start acquaintance with the music difficult to grasp (mostly majority of works by composers of the twentieth century), becausewithout proper readiness can discourage yourself willing to listen to classical music ever.It is best to start with such composers as Vivaldi, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Bizet, Rachmaninov, Brahms and others., With fragments of works by various composers.
If there are able and willing to try to read about the composer, the music you listen to, his biography and the era of his musical works.This will help you a deeper understanding of his music.
