Mix Music History

Love dangdut music is native to Indonesia. This genre has grown up to be like today. Whatever the origin of its genre, if re-arranged into dangdut-Me will taste delicious to the ear.

In Surabaya alone, now almost all celebration featuring live music always nanggap orchestra. Orchestra Orchestra dangdut question is-Me (orkesan). In fact it would be strange if there was celebration but nanggap band.

Thanks to all of you who are still loyal dangdut line-Love. Hopefully in the future, Dangdut-Love more acceptable to all socioeconomic levels of Indonesian society.

Classic Music History

What is classical music, and compositions like what decent classified as classical music? Genre of music this one was often invite misunderstanding in the eyes of those who "lay". Usually this kind of music is considered synonymous with the music played by the orchestra. Stereotypes are not always true, as a purely orchestral terms is defined as the music played by a band of musicians dominated by a stringed instrument (strings). In fact, the gamelan orchestra also scar.
In its original sense, classical music is a musical composition born of European culture circa 1750-1825. Usually classical music categorized by certain periodicity, ranging from the classical period, followed by the baroque, rococo, and romantic. In this era of big names such as Bach, Mozart, or Haydn birth of his works in the form of the sonata, symphony, concerto solo, string quartet, to opera. But in fact, the classical composer himself never to classify types of compositions they composed. Classification as we know it was done solely to make it easier, especially for academic interest.
There is also another meaning of classical music (although that is rarely used), which is all music with high intellectual beauty of all ages, whether it be a symphony of Mozart, Bach cantata or works of the 20th century. The term "intellectual beauty" itself has a relative sense for everyone. In this sense, the music of the modern era such as Kitaro, Richard Clayderman, Yanni, or even Enya, can also be classified as classical music, depending on which side we enjoyed it. If we enjoy more intellectual elements - in terms of melody, harmony, or other aspects of the composition, then so be it classical music. But if we stick to the terms of the first, then obviously this type of music is not in the classical sense. Is available for a separate genre, the "new age", or sometimes also classified as "art music".
If so, whether the music is often performed by the orchestra of Indonesia, Twilite for example, are also classified as classical music? Well, the problem here is that mistakes are already embedded kaprahan as written above was. Twilite is often criticized by the "mainstream" classical music lovers, because it provides more pop music wrapped in a classic package. Is it true? In fact, Twilite is not on the path to pure classical music - although in one or two occasions they also mempagelarkan classical music. Commonly performed by Twilite actually symphonic music, or Pops (use 's'; refers to pop music with a touch of symphonic-orchestra arrangements). Thus, one is precisely the critics who do not understand the true meaning of classical music (in fact, Twilite was never stated that they mempagelarkan classical music).
However, criticism of the orchestra, we sometimes have a point. For example, is a "taboo" for a professional orchestra to bring some sort syntesizer musical instruments (piano instead), or electric guitar (to replace the acoustic guitar) in staging, where it is often practiced by the orchestra in our country. Also there is criticism about the matter rada rada-technical, such as the role of conductor, audience etiquette, and some other things. Not to mention about the players-that's it. But anyway, the effort to introduce the music more "smart" for our society needs to be appreciated. Cook heck, we would constantly fed with model music wobble increasingly tacky it!
