In the power of music

Ensemble

Ensemble – means the joint performance of a piece of music by several participants or a piece of music for a small number of performers; A favorite type of music since ancient times. In accordance with the number of performers (from two to ten), the ensemble is called a duet, trio (tertset), quartet, quintet, sextet, septet, octet, nonet or decimet – by the Latin name of the numbers. As independent works, ensembles belong to the field of chamber music, but also belong to operas, oratorios and cantatas. VIA (vocal – instrumental ensembles) were common in Russia in the seventies.

THE BEATLES “. ROCA ORIGINS?

About “THE BEATLES” written so much that new discoveries in this area can not be done. Many consider 4 Liverpool guys to be the founders of the rock style. Is it so? – It is hard to say. Probably so. Although it seems to me that “THE BEATLES” gave impetus to the development of style, which was later called “soft rock” and which later developed into the so-called “pop music”.

The youth were then tired of the complexities of life, they wanted something light and easy to understand. There is no denying the contribution to the development
