As of lately I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading to learn the material for my exa- AHEM! I mean review my learned material for my IB exams. As much as I appreciate the works of Shakespeare and enjoy immersing myself in modern dramas, the studying is stressful nonetheless when it is for IB. What better way to relieve stress other than to listen to some works by your favorite Western Classical composers?
A while back in the course, I studied the play ‘Death and the Maiden’ by Ariel Dorfman, and it was through this morbid production that I was introduced to the works of Schubert. The Death and the Maiden Quartet immediately became one of my favorites. The usage of the quartet in the play was brilliant as well, it gave the rape scene a sense of gravity that I can’t explain. I do recommend reading it. After going through some of his other pieces, I came across one which was composed for piano. I will let you guys here it and decide for yourselves what you think of it.
Hopefully Schubert will keep me sane while I study for exams next month as well…
Huzzah, I’ve finally gotten around to creating a blog! After much talk and not much do, I decided that I will just go with creating one here, since I don’t really like Tumblr.
Well I suppose an introduction is in order. I am Jellyfish~ Or my real name is Harmony. I am currently taking grade 11 in the IB program, full diploma too. So needless to say I don’t really have much spare time. But when I do (when I’m not doing homework or doing mandatory CAS hours), you can find me playing field hockey, playing video games or working a anything to do with music. I used to play piano but stopped as I went into IB, so I usually just use FL studio to compose. And whenever I can, I suppose I will post what I have on here.
Just a little idea of what you might be seeing here in the future. Any updates with a little group I have would be posted, random rants on life and the little problems it throws at me, as well as any thoughts I may have. Anyways, make sure you join the Jellyfish Komrades by clicking subscribe on the side! Until next time!
