Mugham

MUGAM is the main form (genre) of Azerbaijani professional music of oral tradition.

Part of the pan-eastern culture of macamata. The poetic basis of Mugam is the gazelles of classical and modern poets. Monodial mugham art has developed over many centuries, transmitted from generation to generation.

The teaching method is based on auditory perception, memorization and creative comprehension of mugham information transmitted from the master (ustad) to the student (shagird). Cyclic mugam compositions are embodied in small and large instrumental (solo) and vocal-instrumental (ensemble) forms. The mugham composition is based on frets (modes), each of which has a characteristic final melodic formula (ayag).

An important feature of Azerbaijani Mugam is the improvisation of a metrically free ornamental melody within the framework of a certain canon. Performers also have some freedom in composing a mugam composition (selection of parts, their sequence and quantity). Depending on local characteristics, time (season, time of day) of performance, talent of the performer is the same. mugams can have different options. Mugam schools are preserved: Baku, Karabakh, Shirvan, etc. Continue reading

Late happiness Luciano Pavarotti

When Luciano Pavarotti appeared on the stage, the audience froze in anticipation, and it seemed to every woman: he sings just for her. The great performer had many fans who were ready for anything for the sake of Pavarotti’s supportive look alone. For many years he was married to Adua Veroni, but he never gave up on small romantic adventures. Everything changed when Luciano Pavarotti met his Nicoletta.

Luciano Pavarotti met Adua Veroni in his teens. He dreamed of becoming a famous football player, but Adua, who was seriously engaged in vocals and saw how talented young Luciano, persuaded him to develop in this direction.

Pavarotti began taking music lessons in 1961. When he achieved his first significant success at the international vocal competition, and then brilliantly performed Rudolph’s part in Puccini’s Bohemia at the Theater of Reggio Emilia, Adua accepted his marriage proposal. Since then, she has always been with her husband, touchingly cared for him, put up with his long tour, raised three daughters. Continue reading

Why does music heal?

Almost everything that happens in nature is connected with the world of sounds. In any case, in wildlife. It can be considered proven that music affects us and you, and plants, and animals.

Music increasingly serves health. A special, though not so vast yet, field of medicine has appeared – music therapy. First of all, she treats neuropsychiatric diseases: music therapy sessions under the guidance of psychotherapists are firmly established in medical practice.

And in recent years, sound exposure is increasingly used for the treatment of somatic, bodily diseases. So, the journal “Inventor and Rationalizer” recently spoke in detail (in No. 5 for 1986) about the experience of the doctor A. Guskov: with the help of sound, he removes stones from the ureter.

Sounds that energize the brain

“Some sounds work just as well as a couple of cups of coffee,” says Alfred Tomatis, a distinguished French hearing expert.

This means that we can use music as a tonic.

Ever since the time when mankind first created music, it served its daily goals. Lullabies, military, sea songs – the list is as long as history and culture.

In these days of high technology, Tomatis has discovered a high-tech method of revealing the internal strength of sound, a force that in fact has the “superpower” to enhance mental abilities, healing and energy nourishment.

According to Tomatis, “sound can be an extraordinary source of energy.” Today, at the age of seventy, he is still energetic; he needs only three or four hours a day to sleep, because when he works, special music sounds as a background. But Tomatis did not close only to tonic music. Continue reading
