The structure of the piece is in Rondo form with each section being in a rounded binary form. Rondo form is a very typical type of structure for a classical piece. Within each section there is a lot of periodic phrasing which is a very common feature within classical music. Periodic phrasing is where parts of the music are played in either 4, 8 or 16 bar phrases.

In this piece the chord changes are very slow. The piece also has some chromatic harmony but only very little. Chromatic harmony is where there is chromaticism between 2 chords. The tonality of the piece is mainly diatonic, it uses pedals to establish the key. A pedal is a long held note that is usually played on either the tonic or the dominant and is often seen in the bass part. The piece modulates from Eb major to close keys such as Ab Major and F minor. There are regular cadences through out the piece.

Joseph Haydn

...period, Franz Joseph Haydn is known to be the ‘Father of Symphony’ and the ‘Father of the String Quartet’. He was a divine composer and was able to create symphonies at different heights. Because of him, symphonies are extended in length and are an actual musical form. Haydn was very well-known at his time. It’s impressive to know that he had written over one hundred symphonies, more than any other composer! I think he is one of the greatest composers to have ever lived; to be able to be close friends with Mozart and teach Beethoven himself is an extraordinary thing. Mozart and Beethoven were the greatest musical artists during their time, so for Haydn to share his talents and teach them things shows that he was an amazing composer. He even had a list of string quartets dedicated to him by Mozart. Haydn contributed to the development of music tremendously. Symphonies were made before he began to write them but he created an orchestral repertoire out of them. Making music for a wealthy family, Haydn learned and became more skilled in his music. Being asked to compose music at the age of eighteen with only two violinists, a cellist, and a violist, Haydn perfected what is known to be the string quartet. He’s written many of them and since his day people challenge themselves to compose a string quartet, since it’s very limited with no other instruments. He was a kindhearted, optimistic, and a funny man. Haydn had a great personality and loved practical jokes. All of......

Is the Hoax a Bunch of Jokes?

...Is the Hoax a Bunch of Jokes? Since the amazing Apollo 11 landing on the moon, no one questioned whether it might have been a hoax, until February 15th 2001 when Fox released a documentary called “Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?”. Here, “hoax believers” argue that NASA faked the landing to prove that U.S. technology was greater than that of the Soviets, by not only meeting the standards of the Russians in space travel, but surpassing it, marking a bit of territory on another planet. They claim that they faked all of the footage of the mission, on earth, since NASA knew that landing on the moon was simply impossible. And that’s exactly what happened. First of all, I do not believe many of the claims that the conspiracy theorists have made to be true. Like the fact that there are no stars, or that the flag was waving, there were no craters on landing or takeoff, no dust on the footpads, no exhaust or flame, unparallel shadows, same backgrounds, astronauts brightly lit while under a shadow, crossers behind objects, detailed footprints, or the harsh climate. I understand how these claims prove to be false and don’t show evidence that the imagery was faked and therefore filmed on earth. But that doesn’t mean that it had to have been filmed on the moon, or that it couldn’t be filmed on earth! It was more important to see astronauts walking on the moon than to actually have them physically do it. So lets go back to July 20th 1969 when the U.S.......

...Alison Chastain Feature Paper: Final Draft Paul Mielke A devastating illness left this courageous Texan teenager wondering if the sport he once starred in was lost to him forever. Until, his favorite quarterback gives back to this big time Baylor fan the joy of playing football. A few years ago, Paul Mielke was the fastest player and the star quarterback of the Katy, Texas Youth Football League. “I knew I wanted to play professional football from a young age,” Paul said. Growing up in a family full of Baylor University alumni, Paul dreamed to one day become a Baylor Bear and play quarterback for the well-known football team just like his hero, Robert Griffin III. However, life for the 13-year-old aspiring athlete wasn’t going as planned. Paul’s decreasing health was relevant when the once active teenager became weak and exhausted. In July 2011, Paul was hospitalized and diagnosed with a life threatening heart condition known as Coronary Artery Disease. “It was really hard accepting that I will never be just an average kid again like my friends and because of this disease I’m always going to be different,” Paul said. For the talented athlete, the news that he wouldn’t be able to play football this coming season was the hardest part. This was just the start of Paul’s long battle. In October 2011, doctors informed Paul that the only way of surviving his stage of heart failure was to receive a heart transplant. Around the same time, a dual-threat......

A Pragmatic Analysis of English Humor in Jokes

...A Pragmatic Analysis of English Humor in jokes Abstract Looking back at the history, humorous language and behaviour had been treated as frivolous, ludicrous, and even evil. However, with the development of social civilization, people have gradually realized that humour actually is indispensable for our monotonous and regular life. Humour is embodied in operas, movies, writings, conversations, etc. And the most common type is humorous conversations. In many pragmatics books, lots of humorous conversations can be found, which are employed to analyze pragmatics. So we can see that humour and pragmatics are closely connected. However, papers about humorous language with a pragmatic view are comparatively only a few. Besides, most of them only focus on certain aspects of pragmatics, for example, cooperative principle. Based on the main parts of pragmatics, this paper does a comparatively detailed research on the humorous language in English conversations. At the beginning of the thesis, some popular definitions of humour are compared and a conclusion is made. Then humour is classified into four types and its functions in the social interaction are specified. Key Words: English Humour; Conversational implicature; Violation; Humorous effects 摘 要 回望历史,幽默的语言和行为都被视为琐屑无聊,很可笑,和甚至邪恶。然而,随着社会文明的发展,人们逐渐认识幽默实际上是为我们的单调和定期生活不可或缺。幽默被体现在歌剧、 电影、 文字、 对话等。最常见的类型是幽默的交谈。 ......

Ambivalent Sexism and Dumb Blonde Jokes

...Ambivalent Sexism and Dumb Blonde Jokes Eryn Haygood Oklahoma State University Diversity can be defined as individuals interacting with different races, nationalities, religions and gender to create a group, organization or community. A diverse organization is an organization that values the variance in people. It identifies that people with different attitudes, backgrounds, experiences, and skills bring in new ideas and opinions. Diverse organization also promotes and join these differences to make everything related and welcoming. These types of organizations have the widest range of views and skills so it can help the need of change for the people who are involved. Diversity encourages and benefits society. In the study of Greenwood and Isbell had three goals that they wanted to complete in their study. The first goal, they wanted to explore a certain sexist joke which are the dumb blonde jokes. These type of jokes are unpleasant to women and extremely known and accepted “form of disparaging humor” (Greenwood et al., 2002). They wanted to know how the reactions of women to these jokes would find out the degree of sexist attitudes. There next goal was to determine the line of sexist humor and ambivalent sexism. The dumb blond jokes may show a result to conflicted heterosexual ambivalence so, hostile and ambivalent sexist might react different to these types of jokes.

Three Features

...Three Features That Will Enhance Your Career Paulina Banos Grand Canyon University: UNV-504-PEO101 10/21/2014 Three Features That Will Enhance Your Career Venturing out to the real world after graduation can be exciting and scary all at the same time. One is stepping foot into a world where theory is replaced by practice, and where one is held accountable for their actions. This paper will explain how implementing three features: servant leadership, innovation and hybrid entrepreneurship, can enhance your career and future success. Servant Leadership Servant leadership is a style of management that inspires to bring out ethical and moral behavior in an organizational setting. This kind of leadership style focuses on the beneficial outcome of their employees instead of the self-interest of the leader. In addition, servant leaders try to accommodate their employees in ways where they can succeed in completing their goals, function effectively in the workplace and have a sense of well being amongst their peers and supervisors. (Rivkin, Diestel, & Schmidt, 2014, 52-55). Practicing Servant Leadership Stressors and strain found in the workplace can cause great harm to an individual. According to Rivkin et al., job strain can be caused by job ambiguity and emotional dissonance. Employees have reported that uncertainty of job functions and the lack of genuine expressed emotions from job roles can cause the feeling of “burnout” (Rivkin et al., 2014). In the......

Franz Joseph Haydn

...Franz Joseph Haydn Over the course of his 106 symphonies, Austrian composer Franz Joseph Haydn became the principal architect of the classical style of music. Haydn was called the father of the symphony and the father of the string Quartet. He was born March 31, 1732. When he was eight years old, he went to Vienna to sing in the choir at St. Stephen's Cathedral. His younger brother Michael joined him a short time later. Haydn spent a lot of his life as a musician somewhat secluded from the rest of the music world. On May 1, 1761, he went to work for the Esterhazy family where he remained for the next 30 years. Once he left the Esterhazy family, he was well known and worked with a number of composers. Joseph, he did not go by Franz, was also famous for his sense of humor. This affected his music in a few ways. He also knew other very famous composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven. He was a very busy man and took many trips throughout his life. By the end of his life he was ill and weak; luckily he was alive to enjoy some of his fame. Haydn died May 31, 1809 in Vienna, Austria as one of the greatest composers of his time. Joseph Haydn had a pretty good childhood. He was born in Rohrau, Austria which bordered Hungary. His two well-known siblings were Michael Haydn and Johann Evangelist Haydn. Michael Haydn was born on September 14th, 1737, and he also became a well-known composer. In 1745 he followed in brother Josephs footsteps and became a......

The Joke

...The Joke The Joke is a short story of a man who’s having a lot of problems in his marriage. He’s feeling kind of like he is just a joke. Like there’s no one who really knows how hard it is to be him in that marriage. While his wife is making a telephone call, he’s thinking a lot about his role, about the presence, about how everything was good in the past but mostly the fact that he feels that it has always been him who had done a decent job in helping her - but never her helping him. He’s wife tells the person who she’s talking to that he will be picking him or her up regardless of him even being able to pick the person up. That’s how it seems to be in the whole story. Him thinking too much and his wife taking decisions on he’s behalf. A short essay about how men and woman communicate: Communication between men and women is very often too poor. The woman expects a lot of things of her man, and so do the man of the woman. But none of them cares enough to talk about things – woman often wrap things up and men normally say what they mean. Somehow that makes the whole difference. Sometimes men hurts woman by their direct way of saying things but often it’s the easiest way of saying whatever they mean. And more often men are irritated by woman’s wrapping up, because they never really say what they mean, they want the men to figure out some of it by themselves. This often results in problems between the two of them. Normally woman tends to make decisions on......
