Muzyka i kompozytorzy - Music and Composers
Music comes in different types: from jazz, classical music, pop, rock, disco, baroque music to heavy metal, techno, hip-hop and rap. Every type of music is different and some of them attract more listeners than others.
Speaking about classical music one can mention such famous figures as, for example, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, or Witold Lutoslawski and Mikolaj Gorecki. Thanks to them, classical music became the music of harmony of all artistic elements. Classical music has got a devoted but comparatively small public. The style of music today that dates from 1910 is based on novelties. One of these novelties was music of Debussy - music of impressionism and music of Arnold Schonberg - music of expressionism.
It is not possible to discuss here all types of music, so I would like to mention only some of them. Pop music is surely the most popular in the world, with the Beatles - the pop group of all times, the Swedish group ABBA and modern boys bands.
Rock is among the most popular types of music, too. Elvis Presley, the king of rock'n'roll, became a real symbol of this music. Such songs as It is Now or Never, Are You Lonesome Tonight? or Love me tender became the best known songs ever written. His contribution to rock music is inestimable.
In the nineties rap, hip-hop and techno appeared. Rap is music of Afroamericans against drugs and racism. Then, there is also computer created techno music with its strange power to influence listeners' minds.
I would like to mention disco music as well. A lot of people like it because it is good for dancing to.
While speaking about modern music, one can mention Vanessa-Mae - a real phenomenon in the world of music. She plays the violin, and in her style she brings traditional and modern music together.
In conclusion I would like to say that music adds colour to life, thanks to it one can relax and forget about one's problems. It accompanies us everywhere: at our home, at the discotheque, and it is one of the main sources of entertainment.
