You know what goes on in a musician's head when an orchestra plays.

Friends who have heard live performance of orchestra will be shocked by powerful line-up of performers. But have you ever wondered what these performers think about when they play?

First, you need to know that these people have mostly practiced behind closed doors for at least ten to twenty years, and they practice six to eight hours a day. How could such a group of people play together without any selfishness in power of conductor?

The above is simplest map of location of orchestra, it is important to know where they sit.

First of all, let's get acquainted with children's shoes in thong group. Remember, to tell a violin from a viola, it's important to understand which one looks smaller when you hold it in your hands! To tell a cello from a double bass, it's important to see whose shoulders are down!

Then let's take a look at real internal monologue of this group of crazy people who practiced kung fu to point of obsession.

1. First Violin

Generally speaking, first violin is placed in two extreme rows of violins, which attract attention and central ones, facing directly to audience. Literally, "one" means "first", which determines main position of first violin and is irreplaceable.

In a piece of music, first violin is responsible for playing main theme of piece, which determines pitch of piece. Similar to deputy conductor of orchestra, in terms of emotional expressiveness it can be considered strongest voice. The rhythm of his performance is most important for whole work.

2. Second Violin

Position of second violin next to position of first violin, second. Whether it is conspicuous or not, it does not matter, it cannot be conspicuous.

Although what second violin plays is also melody part, compared to first violin it is not main melody, but a sub-melody. Its height is several steps lower than that of first violin, and sound is deeper. This is equivalent to role of accompaniment to first violin.

3. Viola

Alto usually acts as an alto part, accompaniment and background for main melody. He often plays role of connecting high and low voices in a string group. The viola is only one-seventh larger than violin and is almost same shape, but viola strings are usually thicker than violin strings, so sound is softer and deeper.

At same time, thicker strings also mean slower pronunciation. In fact, if violinist and violist play together, violist must pull strings slightly ahead of violinist so that viola and violin sounds sound at same time.

4. Cello

The cello is most intuitive as it can only be played while seated. The cello is a lower middle-level musical instrument in violin family of musical instruments, with a rich and full timbre and cheerful character, playing lyrical melodies well and expressing deep and complex emotions.

The cello is suitable for a variety of roles: sometimes it joins bass camp and gives a heavy sigh in lower part, sometimes it plays role of a rhythmic backbone with two middle strings.

5. Double cello

From performer's point of view, double cello has two playing poses - sitting and standing. The sitting posture is sitting on a high stool or standing up. Looking at surface of instrument, double cello is much larger than a cello and is about size of a man. If it's a painting, compare arms of a piano, round arms of a cello, and folded arms of a double cello.

When we listen to symphonic music, it is difficult for us to hear or notice sound of double bass. In fact, sound of a double cello is basis of building of entire orchestra. If there is no foundation, then building will be unstable, not thick, and tee will float.

Next we move on to woodwind section. Woodwinds play role of a palette in orchestral symphonic performances, are a combination of musical instruments with richest timbre and most vivid personality in orchestral symphonic performances, and are often used to express scenes of nature and rural life.

The above are examples of children's shoes from woodwind group. Let's see what they think about when they play.

6. Oboe

The oboe often plays a leading role in an orchestra and is an excellent solo instrument. In addition, it is also reference tuning instrument in a symphony orchestra (the band is tuned with oboe's lowercase A). The difficulty of playing oboe depends not only on level of performance and quality of instrument, but also largely depends on quality of reed.

Objectively, oboe itself is more expensive than other instruments, and reeds need to be changed regularly, and one is not cheap. Subjectively, requirements for breathing and mouth shape are relatively high.

7. Flute

The sound of flute is melodic. Although appearance is metallic, since early flute was made of wood, it is classified as a woodwind like piccolo.

The flute is oldest musical instrument discovered by humans and main instrument for creating high melodies in modern orchestral and chamber music. Except that after a long practice, height of shoulders on both sides will be different, there are no other side effects.

8. Clarinet

The clarinet is also commonly known as clarinet. But remember, don't call it a clarinet if you see black. The high frequencies of clarinet are bright and clear, mids are full of expression, and basses are deep and deep, and sound sounds more ethereal than that of oboe.

They say doppelgänger is a gentleman and loner is an asshole... but you're just saying who you like to listen to? right! Let's talk about it, okay? Who said that a clarinetist looks like a gangster when he looks at waves? We don't need waves, we want flowers to grow from waves~

9. Large pipe

The bassoon, also known as bassoon, is a double-reeded bass woodwind instrument. Bassoon is even more difficult to play than oboe, but since there are fewer scenes and not too many solos in play, this does not seem to be such a big deal. Like double bass, it is a labor-intensive instrument that cannot be played solo.

In fact, almost everyone has heard its sound when played alone, such as very recognizable prelude in Four Little Swans most familiar to us in Swan Lake, with which we are familiar, and Prokofiev. old man in "Peter and Wolf".

Next horn group. The number of wind instruments used in early symphonies was small. It was not until first half of nineteenth century that wind instruments began to be widely used in symphony orchestras.

The timbre of wind instruments is characterized by majesty, brilliance and enthusiasm, and they are indispensable in many great moments of history. Above are some representative children's brass band shoes. Let's see what they think about when they play.

10. Trumpet

As we all know, violin instruments are mainly responsible for melodic part and are most striking. Among brass instruments, trumpet has highest sound.

The trumpet is responsible for playing a melody or high rhythm in an orchestra.

11. Trombone

Although trombone is not as bright as trumpet, its timbre is just as brilliant, with a solemn and majestic color, and timbre is very full and full of power. When trombone is played lightly, it can still show a soft and gentle effect.

Due to sliding pipe control method, trombone can freely play various chromatic scales and unique slides. In a symphony orchestra, trombone is mainly used to express melody, rhythm, and harmony of middle and bass parts.

12. Large

The tuba plays bass role in brass instruments and is largest brass instrument. Since volume of a wind instrument is relatively large, it does not need as much as a double bass. Usually only one tuba is used in an orchestra.

Finally, let's take a look at percussion group. Compared to string group and brass group, children's shoes in percussion group seem to spend more time playing mobile phones...

13. Percussion

Percussion instruments are generally divided into two types: tuned percussion instruments and atonal percussion instruments. Among these, tuned percussion instruments include timpani, bells, xylophone, and marimba; atonal percussion instruments include snare, bass drum, triangular iron, tambourine, castanets, maracas, cymbals (i.e. one less circle than cymbals), gongs, etc..

Although children's shoes with percussion look relatively calm, they are actually quite tense. Because if string music gurgles, it's like tripping while walking, if wind music gurgles, it's like scratching, but if percussion music gurgles, it must be scene of a car accident!

Huh? You ask me why there is no horn on it, because I have no idea what horn is thinking. What's with harp? Isn't harp just narcissistic? ...

We've finished talking about hearts of different voices. In fact, everyone has a wonderful wish at end! Just hurry up and go home for dinner...

What? Extra row today? ….

The story above is for entertainment purposes only. Dedicated to hardworking and obsessed silvers in the orchestra.
