How to play the iconic ‘Epic’ instrumental music?
The “Epic” instrumental music is the main theme of many Westerns.
It was originally composed by the great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi and has been played on TV and in films for over two centuries.
However, the music has since been replaced by the modern version, called “real” music.
We speak to an expert in the field of instrumental music to find out more.
Al Jazeera’s Samara Ghanem speaks to Dr. Jumana Ranganathan, an associate professor in the department of music at the University of California, Los Angeles, about the music of the world’s greats.
Al Jazeeras: The “real music” is the “epic music” of the West, and the modern instrumental music has become very popular.
What do you think makes the “real”, classical version of the classic instrumental music so popular?
Al Jase: The modern instrumentalist has always been influenced by Verdi’s music.
It’s one of the major influences on classical music, but not as much as the “traditional” music of classical music.
Al-Jazeeraw: In the modern era, it seems that there is a trend to incorporate modern music into the repertoire of Westerns, and there are several recent examples.
For example, the recent BBC documentary The Song of Myself, which features classical musicians, is a great example of this trend.
The music of this piece is quite complex and often quite technical.
Al Ranganath: The classical “epics” of classical compositions, like Verdi, are a little bit like the classic Westerns – they have a bit more structure, they have more dynamics and a bit less melody.
There are also a lot of references to historical events and places, as well as more lyrical elements.
But it’s really not a traditional Western, it’s more of an orchestral score, and in the same way, the modern jazz of classical musicians can be more of a fusion of elements, and I think that’s a very good thing.
Al: So why did the modern-sounding “epicyon” (the classical version) of the “Epics” become the “true” instrumentalist’s music?
Dr. Ranganatha: There’s actually a really simple explanation for this.
In the classical world, the melody and harmony are a bit different.
The harmony is a little more like a harp, the melodies are slightly less rhythmic, and so on.
But in the modern world, we have more of this, but they are also quite different.
They are very much a hybrid, a bit like modern jazz, but with a different melody.
Al : So why do you see this in the classical repertoire?
Dr RanganATH: It’s a little different, but it is also a bit similar.
In classical music there are also more complex, less rhythmatic melodies and lyrics.
They tend to have more in common with jazz and modern jazz.
Al; Al Jayeras: How would you describe the modern, “realistic” version of this music?
Al: It has been popular for a long time, and has also become the music that’s used by so many TV shows and films, which is quite unusual in the West.
In recent years, there’s been a lot more interest in classical music and the Westerns that are being used by TV and film directors and producers.
So I think this music is very interesting and it’s very contemporary.
Al JA: And the new “real jazz” is also becoming popular?
Dr JR: It is very popular, especially in the UK.
Al Q: The music has a lot in common.
You mentioned jazz, modern jazz and classical music all being “modern”.
But do you have any more specific criteria that you use to decide which “modern” jazz is the best?
Al Q; Yes, this is my main criterion: a) the melodic qualities of the music, b) the emotional tone, and c) the way the music is used in the film.
Al G: In your study, you mentioned that the modern “episodes” of Western music, the jazz of modern jazz have an emotional tone that’s very emotional, whereas the classical music of Western composers tends to have a more emotional tone.
How do you feel about this?
Dr L: I think the classical Westerns have a very interesting sound and I’m quite happy to see that in classical and jazz.
But I’m also really disappointed that the contemporary jazz is still used in films and television.
I think it’s just not being used anymore.
Al Al: What are your thoughts on jazz and contemporary jazz?
Al Al Q S: I am very impressed that jazz is being used, because jazz is really good for storytelling.
I like that it’s a bit older than jazz, and it has a little less melodic depth and a little fewer melodic motifs. So it
