Normally graceful, the minuet seems flat-footed in places and a little rough around the edges for a courtly dance.
Ottorino Respighi spent more time in his home country of Italy than Handel or Haydn did in theirs, but he did travel to study with Rimsky-Korsakov in Saint Petersburg and Bruch in Berlin. However, his orchestral postcards from Rome— Fountains of Rome , Pines of Rome , and Roman Festivals —traveled even more widely than their author and remain internationally popular. Like the fascination with ancient Rome in his colorful tone poems, his Ancient Airs and Dances betrays him as a classicist among his modernist peers, like Alfredo Casella.
The orchestral suite maintains the clarity of the lute pieces Respighi borrowed from Renaissance composers, known and unknown, including Simone Molinaro and Vincenzo Galilei the father of Galileo.
The style of each movement echoes its origin, whether in song villanelle or dance balletto , gagliarda , and passo mezzo. Balancing his preference for expressive orchestration with his Renaissance source material, Respighi opts for a small ensemble with brilliant timbres. Perhaps only Lalo Schifrin could outdo Respighi and his teacher, Rimsky-Korsakov, in terms of inventiveness and variety in orchestration. With his experience as both film composer and jazz arranger, Schifrin has developed perhaps the most colorful orchestral palette of any current composer.
Perhaps the best-known minute of music in history, the Mission Impossible theme song broke the mold that had been set in film noir soundtracks of the s where jazz was associated with gritty urban landscapes.

For study purposes, this can be helpful and illuminating. Although Symphony No. The son of a wheelwright, when Haydn was about eight years old he became a choirboy at St. After leaving St. Haydn studied composition on his own and with Nicola Porpora, a composer and singing teacher for whom Haydn was an accompanist. Officially, Haydn was still associated with the family; however, he was free to pursue other opportunities as well.
On Sunday, January 19, , Haydn, with his friend and copyist Johann Elssler left Vienna, arriving in London on February 4, a day after the scheduled opening concert. It was for this orchestra that Haydn composed Symphony No. The first movement begins with a slow introduction in minor featuring two ideas built on the same rhythm: a fanfare motive containing the skeletal outline of a chord progression,. The four repeated notes in this main theme are easily recognizable and become a continuous source of energy throughout the movement.
The second movement, Andante, shifts between major and minor with a dramatic effect for which Haydn had become and is still known. The opening melodic idea stays in the forefront of this movement even while Haydn nimbly varies the instrumentation and figurations around it.
For the Trio, featuring solo passages in the winds accompanied by strings, Haydn wrote delicately swirling lines that continually unfold, and, only at the last moment, anticipate the return of the Minuet. Traveling on his first trip to England, Haydn stopped at the Bonn where he met and agreed to teach a young composer at the court, Ludwig van Beethoven.
