What kind of Yamaha piano is used in Michael meets Mozart?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

"Michael Meets Mozart" is a YouTube video created by ThePianoGuys, featuring a mashup of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" and Mozart's "Symphony No. 40." In the video, Jon Schmidt, one of ThePianoGuys, plays a Yamaha Disklavier grand piano. The Disklavier is a type of acoustic piano that has integrated digital components, allowing it to reproduce performances with remarkable accuracy. The Disklavier system records and plays back not only the notes played but also the nuances of the performance, including dynamics and pedal use. Yamaha offers different models of Disklavier pianos, and the specific model used in the video may not be explicitly mentioned.

When was Homer's poetry most probably written down?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, or at least the first known poet, because he was in Mesopotamian times.

Answer:

Although the Mesopotamian poem "Epic of Gilgamesh" was written about 2000 BCE no author is indicated. The earliest version we have was put together by Sin-liqe-unninni a Mesopotamian in the period between 1300 BC and 1000 BC. Homer's poem, or at least poems attributed to the Greek Homer were written in 850 BCE (maybe) but hey too may have been put together at a later date by others.

The earliest poem with recorded poet(ess) is also the oldest love poem. It was recited by an unnamed bride of the Sumerian king Shu-Sin, who ruled from 2037-2029 BCE.

''type of person was Mozart''?

Asked by Wiki User

Mozart was a very whimsical jovial, brilliant musical romantic genus. His music comprised of symphony's that he first composed by violin at age 6. Mozart was deficient in other fields because his music knowledge was so advanced. Mozart had not much reality of what was "the big picture" making him exuberant in nature and humanity. Mozart was one of the greatest most intricate composers to ever walk the face of the earth. Surely, like one of his self biography's read, he was." touched by God in a musically enchanted way"...

Why did van Gogh cut off his ear?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Finally, one right up my alley!! VanGogh, as is often the case with Artists and other creative types, suffered from mental illness and an addiction to Absinthe, also known as "the green fairy"(which is now banned in the US)and was quite fond of visiting prostitutes. Technically he didn't "lose" his ear, he cut off only the lobe of his left ear and gave it, in an envelope, to a prostitute named Rachel at a brothel he frequented, with the instructions to "guard this object carefully". An accurate diagnosis of Van Gogh's illness is still unavailable, but we do know a few things for sure: 1)he acquired syphillis from the prostitutes he visited and 2)there was a family history of mental illness. Recently, a new theory has evolved which states something to the effect that he may have had a congenital brain lesion that was exacerbated by his regular ingestion of absinthe. Hope that helps! Cheers! *That is true. He cut it off and brought it to a woman at a brothel. He was a very odd person. He once urinated in the fireplace of the queens castle for no particular reason. I added a link to the right. If you would like to read more about the ear you can find the information on that site. See link below.

What age did Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart start playing the violin?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Beethoven was a virtuoso pianist, and wrote much of his early music for his own performances. He was also instructed by a relative in playing the violin and viola. From age 7 to about 9 his father tried to exploit him as a Wunderkind, as Mozart's father had done with Wolfgang. It is not clear whether he performed on violin or only on piano during those appearances, and by age 9 they were over.

They didn't classify school grades so much in Mozart's day. There was no Elementary, Middle or High School ... it was just "school", usually taught at home by parents or relatives, although there were universities specializing in various subject matters.

What are the names of Mozart's songs?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Mozart composed symphonies and concertos which are not exactly the same thing as songs, and they generally have numbers instead of names, for example, Piano Concerto #12. However, there is one that has a name, the Rondo a la Turko, which I find to be particularly charming.

What is the name of the piece of music Mozart wrote when he was dying?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

the name of the piece of music he began to write when he started dying was called the Requiem and after a short amount of time he started to convince himself that this was his own death music. he continued on this piece of music until he died and never finished it. the last 3 sections of the Requiem were completely lacking when he died and one of his pupils Franz Sussmayer ended up finishing it.
He was just a couple of measures into another symphony.
