By the s, digital media, in the form of the compact disc, had gained a larger market share, the vinyl record left the mainstream in Since the s, records continue to be manufactured and sold on a smaller scale, are used by disc jockeys and released by artists in dance music genres, listened to by a growing niche market of audiophiles ; the phonograph record has made a notable niche resurgence in the early 21st century — 9. In the UK sales have increased five-fold from to ; as of , 48 record pressing facilities remain worldwide, 18 in the United States and 30 in other countries.
The increased popularity of vinyl has led to the investment in new and modern record-pressing machines. Phonograph records are described by their diameter in inches, the rotational speed in revolutions per minute at which they are played, their time capacity, determined by their diameter and speed. Vinyl records may be scratched or warped if stored incorrectly but if they are not exposed to high heat, carelessly handled or broken, a vinyl record has the potential to last for centuries; the large cover are valued by collectors and artists for the space given for visual expression when it comes to the long play vinyl LP.
In the s, these tracings were first scanned by audio engineers and digitally converted into audible sound. Phonautograms of singing and speech made by Scott in were played back as sound for the first time in Along with a tuning fork tone and unintelligible snippets recorded as early as , these are the earliest known recordings of sound. In , Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. Unlike the phonautograph, it could both record and reproduce sound.
Despite the similarity of name, there is no documentary evidence that Edison's phonograph was based on Scott's phonautograph. Edison first tried recording sound on a wax-impregnated paper tape, with the idea of creating a "telephone repeater" analogous to the telegraph repeater he had been working on. Although the visible results made him confident that sound could be physically recorded and reproduced, his notes do not indicate that he reproduced sound before his first experiment in which he used tinfoil as a recording medium several months later. The tinfoil was wrapped around a grooved metal cylinder and a sound-vibrated stylus indented the tinfoil while the cylinder was rotated.
The recording could be played back immediately; the Scientific American article that introduced the tinfoil phonograph to the public mentioned Marey and Barlow as well as Scott as creators of devices for recording but not reproducing sound. Edison invented variations of the phonograph that used tape and disc formats. Numerous applications for the phonograph were envisioned, but although it enjoyed a brief vogue as a startling novelty at public demonstrations, the tinfoil phonograph proved too crude to be put to any practical use.
A decade Edison developed a improved phonograph that used a hollow wax cylinder instead of a foil sheet; this proved to be both a better-sounding and far more useful and durable device. The wax phonograph cylinder created the recorded sound market at the end of the s and dominated it through the early years of the 20th century.
Lateral-cut disc records were developed in the United States by Emile Berliner , who named his system the "gramophone", distinguishing it from Edison's wax cylinder "phonograph" and American Graphophone's wax cylinder "graphophone". Berliner's earliest discs, first marketed in , only in Europe , were Both the records and the machine were adequate only for use as a toy or curiosity, due to the limited sound quality.
In the United States in , under the Berliner Gramophone trademark, Berliner started marketing records of 7 inches diameter with somewhat more substantial entertainment value, along with somewhat more substantial gramophones to play them. Berliner's records had poor sound quality compared to wax cylinders, but his manufacturing associate Eldridge R. Johnson improved it. Abandoning Berliner's "Gramophone" tradem. Organ music In music, the organ is a keyboard instrument of one or more pipe divisions or other means for producing tones, each played with its own keyboard, played either with the hands on a keyboard or with the feet using pedals.
The organ is a old musical instrument, dating from the time of Ctesibius of Alexandria , who invented the water organ, it was played throughout the Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman world during races and games. During the early medieval period it spread from the Byzantine Empire , where it continued to be used in secular and imperial court music, to Western Europe , where it assumed a prominent place in the liturgy of the Catholic Church.
Subsequently it re-emerged as a recital instrument in the Classical music tradition. Pipe organs use air moving through pipes to produce sounds. Since the 16th century, pipe organs have used various materials for pipes, which can vary in timbre and volume. Hybrid organs are appearing in which pipes are augmented with electronic additions.
Great economies of space and cost are possible when the lowest of the pipes can be replaced. Non-piped organs include the reed organ or harmonium , which like the accordion and harmonica use air to excite free reeds. Electronic organs or digital organs, notably the Hammond organ, generate electronically produced sound through one or more loudspeakers. Mechanical organs include the barrel organ, water organ, Orchestrion ; these are controlled by mechanical means such as book music. Little barrel organs dispense with the hands of an organist and bigger organs are powered in most cases by an organ grinder or today by other means such as an electric motor; the pipe organ is the largest musical instrument.

These instruments vary in size, ranging from a cubic yard to a height reaching five floors, are built in churches, concert halls, homes. Small organs are called "positive" or "portative"; the pipes are controlled by the use of hand stops and combination pistons. Although the keyboard is not expressive as on a piano and does not affect dynamics, some divisions may be enclosed in a swell box, allowing the dynamics to be controlled by shutters.
Some organs are enclosed, meaning that all the divisions can be controlled by one set of shutters. Some special registers with free reed pipes are expressive, it has existed in its current form since the 14th century, though similar designs were common in the Eastern Mediterranean from the early Byzantine period and precursors, such as the hydraulic organ, have been found dating to the late Hellenistic period.

Along with the clock, it was considered one of the most complex human-made mechanical creations before the Industrial Revolution. Pipe organs range in size from a single short keyboard to huge instruments with over 10, pipes. A large modern organ has three or four keyboards with five octaves each, a two-and-a-half octave pedal board. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart called the organ the "King of instruments"; some of the biggest instruments have foot pipes, it sounds to an 8 Hz frequency fundamental tone.
The most distinctive feature is the ability to range from the slightest sound to the most powerful, plein-jeu impressive sonic discharge, which can be sustained in time indefinitely by the organist. For instance, the Wanamaker organ, located in Philadelphia , USA, has sonic resources comparable with three simultaneous symphony orchestras.
Another interesting feature lies in its intrinsic " polyphony " approach: each set of pipes can be played with others, the sounds mixed and interspersed in the environment, not in the instrument itself. Most organs in Europe , the Americas, Australasia can be found in Christian churches; the introduction of church organs is traditionally attributed to Pope Vitalian in the 7th century. Due to its simultaneous ability to provide a musical foundation below the vocal register, support in the vocal register, increased brightness above the vocal register, the organ is ideally suited to accompany human voices, whether a congregation, a choir, or a cantor or soloist.

Most services include solo organ repertoire for independent performance rather than by way of accompaniment as a prelude at the beginning the service and a postlude at the conclusion of the service. Today this organ may be a pipe organ, a digital or electronic organ that generates the sound with digital signal processing chips, or a combination of pipes and electronics. It may be called a church organ or classical organ to differentiate it from the theatre organ, a different style of instrument. However, as classical organ repertoire was developed for the pipe organ and in turn influenced its development, the line between a church and a concert organ became harder to draw.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century, symphonic organs flourished in secular venues in the United States and the United Kingdom , designed to replace symphony orchestras by playing transcriptions of orchestral pieces. Symphonic and orchestral organs fell out of favor as the orgelbewegung took hold in the middle of the 20th century, organ builders began to look to historical models for inspiration in constructing new instruments.
Today, modern builders construct organs in a variety of styles for both secular a. Bernardino Molinari Bernardino Molinari was an Italian conductor. Since this was like now, the leading symphony orchestra position in Italy, it aroused the envy of several rivals. After the liberation of Rome on 4 June , Molinari was contested by the public, in particular during two concerts held on 9 and 12 July, for his involvement with the Fascist regime, he had to suspend the performance and, since he was able to conduct in Rome the Orchestra of the Theatre of Opera only.
In , he arrived in Palestine and conducted the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra became its musical advisor; the performance of the Korngold violin concerto with David Grunschlag as soloist was critically acclaimed According to some, his arrangement of the Israeli national anthem Hatikvah was praised by Leonard Bernstein.
His version serves most Israeli performances of the piece. Molinari guest-conducted at all the important musical centres in Europe and the Americas, always as a symphony leader. Unlike most Italian conductors, he conducted opera. Lanciano , Casini, Claudio. In Deane L. Grove Music Online. Oxford Music Online. Oxford University Press. Retrieved 30 May Tempo In musical terminology, tempo is the speed or pace of a given piece.
In classical music, tempo is indicated with an instruction at the start of a piece and is measured in beats per minute. In modern classical compositions, a " metronome mark" in beats per minute may supplement or replace the normal tempo marking, while in modern genres like electronic dance music, tempo will simply be stated in bpm.
Tempo may be separated from articulation and meter, or these aspects may be indicated along with tempo, all contributing to the overall texture. While the ability to hold a steady tempo is a vital skill for a musical performer, tempo is changeable. Depending on the genre of a piece of music and the performers' interpretation, a piece may be played with slight tempo rubato or drastic accelerando. In ensembles, the tempo is indicated by a conductor or by one of the instrumentalists, for instance the drummer.
While tempo is described or indicated in many different ways, including with a range of words, it is measured in beats per minute. For example, a tempo of 60 beats per minute signifies one beat per second, while a tempo of beats per minute is twice as rapid, signifying one beat every 0. The note value of a beat will be that indicated by the denominator of the time signature. For instance, in 44 the beat will be a crotchet ; this measurement and indication of tempo became popular during the first half of the 19th century, after Johann Nepomuk Maelzel invented the metronome.
Beethoven was one of the first composers to use the metronome. Instead of beats per minute, some 20th-century classical composers specify the total playing time for a piece, from which the performer can derive tempo. With the advent of modern electronics, bpm became an precise measure. Music sequencers use the bpm system to denote tempo. In popular music genres such as electronic dance music, accurate knowledge of a tune's bpm is important to DJs for the purposes of beatmatching ; the speed of a piece of music can be gauged according to measures per minute or bars per minute, the number of measures of the piece performed in one minute.
This measure is used in ballroom dance music. In different musical contexts, different instrumental musicians, conductors, music directors or other individuals will select the tempo of a song or piece. In a popular music or traditional music group or band, the bandleader or lead singer may select the tempo. In popular and traditional music, whoever is setting the tempo counts out one or two bars in tempo. In some songs or pieces in which a singer or solo instrumentalist begins the work with a solo introduction, the tempo they set will provide the tempo for the group.
In an orchestra or concert band, the conductor sets the tempo. In a marching band, the drum major may set the tempo. In a sound recording, in some cases a record producer may set the tempo for a song. In classical music it is customary to describe the tempo of a piece by one or more words, most in Italian , in addition to or instead of a metronome mark in beats per minute. Italian is used because it was the language of most composers during the time these descriptions became commonplace. Some well-known Italian tempo indications include "Allegro", "Andante" and "Presto". This practice developed during the baroque and classical periods.
In the earlier Renaissance music, performers understood most music to flow at a tempo defined by the tactus ; the mensural time signature indicated. In the Baroque period, pieces would be given an indication, which might be a tempo marking, or the name of a dance, the latter being an indication both of tempo and of metre. Any musician of the time was expected to know how to interpret these markings based on custom and experience.
In some cases, these markings were omitted. For example, the first movement of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. Despite the increasing number of explicit tempo markings, musicians still observe conventions, expecting a minuet to be at a stately tempo, slower than a Viennese waltz. Genres imply tempos. Many tempo markings indicate mood and expression. For example and allegro both indicate a speedy execution, but allegro connotes joy. Presto, on the other hand indicates speed. Additional Italian words indicate tempo and mood.
For example, the "agitato" in the Allegro agitato of the last movement of George Gershwin's piano concerto in F has both a tempo indication and a mood indication. Composers name movements of compositions after their tempo marking. A particular musical form or genre implies its own tempo, so composers need place no further explanation in the score.
Popular music charts use terms such as bossa nova, ballad. Designed by architect William Burnet Tuthill and built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in , it is one of the most prestigious venues in the world for both classical music and popular music.
The Four Seasons ("Le Quattro Stagioni"): Piano Sheet: Antonio Vivaldi
Carnegie Hall has its own artistic programming and marketing departments, presents about performances each season, it is rented out to performing groups. Carnegie Hall has 3, seats, divided among its three auditoriums. Carnegie Hall contains three separate performance spaces; the Isaac Stern Auditorium seats 2, on five levels and was named after violinist Isaac Stern in to recognize his efforts to save the hall from demolition in the s.
The hall is enormously high, visitors to the top balcony must climb steps. All but the top level can be reached by elevator; the main hall was home to the performances of the New York Philharmonic from until Known as the most prestigious concert stage in the U. After years of heavy wear and tear, the hall was extensively renovated in ; the Ronald O. Perelman Stage is 42 feet deep; the five levels of seating in the Stern Auditorium begin with the Parquet level, which has twenty-five full rows of thirty-eight seats and four partial rows at stage level, for a total of 1, seats.
The First Tier and Second Tier consist of sixty-five boxes. Second from the top is the Dress Circle , seating in six rows. At the top, the balcony seats Although seats with obstructed views exist throughout the auditorium, only the Dress Circle level has structural columns. Zankel Hall, which seats , is named after Arthur Zankel. Called Recital Hall, this was the first auditorium to open to the public in April Following renovations made in , it was renamed Carnegie Lyceum, it was leased to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in , converted into a cinema, which opened as the Carnegie Hall Cinema in May with the film White Nights by Luchino Visconti and was reclaimed for use as an auditorium in The reconstructed Zankel Hall is flexible in design and can be reconfigured in several different arrangements to suit the needs of the performers, it opened in September The seats in Zankel Hall are arranged in two levels; the Parterre level seats a total of and the Mezzanine level seats Each level has a number of seats which are situated along the side walls, perpendicular to the stage; these seats are designated as boxes.
The boxes on the Parterre level are raised above the level of the stage. Zankel Hall is accessible and its stage is 44 feet wide and 25 feet deep—the stage occupies one fifth of the performance space. The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Recital Hall seats and is named after Sanford I. Weill, a former chairman of the board, his wife Joan; this auditorium, in use since the hall opened in , was called Chamber Music Hall.
The Weill Recital Hall is the smallest of the three performance spaces, with a total of seats; the Orchestra level contains fourteen rows of fourteen seats, a total of , the Balcony level contains 72 seats in five rows. The building contains the Carnegie Hall Archives, established in , the Rose Museum , which opened in ; until studios above the Hall contained working spaces for artists in the performing and graphic arts including music, dance, as well as architects, literary agents and painters.
The spaces were unusual in being purpose-designed for artistic work, with high ceilings and large windows for natural light. In the Carnegie Hall Corporation announced plans to evict the 33 remaining studio residents, some of whom had been in the building since the s, including celebrity portrait photographer Editta Sherman and fashion photographer Bill Cunningham.
The organization's research showed that Andrew Carnegie had always considered the spaces as a source of income to support the hall and its activities. The space has been re-purposed for corporate offices. Carnegie Hall is one of the last large buildings in New York built of masonry, without a steel frame; the exterior is rendered in narrow Roman bricks of a mellow ochre hue, with details in terracotta and brownstone.
The foyer avoids typical 19th century Baroque theatrical style with the Florentine Renaissance manner of Filippo Brunelleschi's Pazzi Chapel : white plaster and gray stone form a harmonious system of round-headed arched openings and Corinthian pilasters that support an unbroken cornice , with round-headed lunettes above it, under a vaulted ceiling; the famous white and gold auditorium interio.
