By age seven, his musical talent was already apparent, and he became a student at the Vienna Conservatory, although the minimum age for entry was ten years.

Kreisler gradually became blind and deaf and died at age He is interred in a mausoleum in New York. His style is easily recognized when compared to violin recordings of others. This piece is in two sections, the first being a strong declaration. The music softens as it progresses, but reasserts itself in a dramatic close. The second section is a quick-paced affair, which eventually builds up to a flashy dazzling cadenza that appears over a rumbling pedal in the bass of the piano.
Kreisler originally attributed the origins of the two-section piece to a less known composer of the 18th century. After 30 years of attributing the work to the composer Pugnani, he finally claimed rightful ownership. As a composer and pianist, Arutiunian also served as full Professor at the music conservatory. Several of his works for wind instruments have secured their place in the international repertory.
It was promptly considered a virtuoso showpiece to be assimilated into the standard trumpet repertoire worldwide. The concerto consists of five major sections that are performed without pause. Its melodic and rhythmic elements represent the compositional style of fellow Armenian composer Aram Khatchaturian.
Gallagher is a prolific composer of orchestral works that feature instrumental solos in a variety of forms. She has written vocal ensemble and choral music, dance and dramatic music, and music for children. Gallagher is a recipient of numerous awards, grants, and commissions and her works are published by three music companies and performed throughout the United States and abroad.
A resident of Wilmington, Gallagher lives with her husband, composer Ernesto Ferrari, and their two children. It focuses on two recurring themes and a series of dramatic fanfares that vary in intensity, mood, and pitch. At age 28 he and another young, fledgling artist, Jerome Robbins, teamed up to write music and choreography for this minute jazz ballet. Three sailor buddies spend their one-day pass on the New York City scene. In the process of meandering around, they end up in a bar competing over local girls until the mood peters out for both girls and sailors.
They leave the bar and saunter onto the street again, resuming their prowl for more adventure. The suite begins with a musical depiction of the three sailors as brassy, swaggering, high-spirited sailors, all steamed up and ready for fun and girls.
They cavort boisterously to accompanying music which focuses on a short, high spirited, somewhat dissonant theme quickly passed among winds, brass, percussion, and a jazzy solo piano.
This cool, bouncy piano interrupts the action throughout the score with several delightful interludes. One sailor interacts with a lone girl out on a stroll. A casual attitude mixes with moments of intense lust between the two as they move to slow and torchy music. The mood changes when the three sailors enter a nearby bar. The first is bawdy and boisterous with highly percussive music to illustrate acrobatic, vaudeville showiness in dance form. The second dance is lighter, gayer, more happy-go-lucky, while the sailor prances to ever-changing, half-waltz time rhythms.
The third dance music evokes Spanish and Latin flavors, with the wood blocks playing a prominent role along with a display of rhumba-type rhythms. The music becomes a frenetic lindy hop, and a fight breaks out. The girls become disgusted with the wild antics and leave the scene. The sailors also leave with newfound determination to never to let girls interfere with their friendship.
Then a new girl appears and they turn to follow her. A modernist in all art forms, he believed wholeheartedly in contemporary influences. His goal was to liberate American music from its European heritage.
He realized that previous works had been too esoteric and complex in harmonic and rhythmic construction; dissonances had previously been exploited for little reason other than standard usage in composition.
As a simple tourist, he began looking for the spirit of the Mexican people and found it in a local dance hall. The moods run from garish and lusty to lyrical and sentimental. Copland was convinced that he had found a compositional style leading in the direction of the recognition and permanent success he personally desired.

Trumpet Concerto in E major, S.49 (Hummel, Johann Nepomuk)
After deciding that a career as a composer was right for him, Arutunian joined the U. With some works being fairly popular in the Soviet-Armenian sphere, Arutunian was more often than not overshadowed by fellow composer, Aram Khachaturian.
