During the orchestra period, our class always have conversation about some song and make comments on the song. Some of us have said "this song is sad," while the professor disagreed with us. So I decided to search for what was actually "sad" for most of people who enjoy classical music and I found this music from Tchaikovsky. I chose classical music because it doesn't have lyrics and it can be interpreted in different ways. As you listen to this song, what can you think that this song's flow is like? Is it sad? Is it happy? Is it exciting?
Even though I was looking for a "sad" violin concerto, I actually found this song as a dramatic piece of music because it had different changes of mood in between times. Some parts, I actually thought it was joyful, which was the opposition of what I was looking for. Thus, I think a piece of music can be interpreted very differently in different point of views.
What do you think is the mood of this song is? Why do you think music can be interpreted in many different ways?
