Side Notes:
• I came up with a killer Mozart-style arrangement involving several songs by modern artists. But I ran into a roadblock with getting permissions. So I decided to do variations on a theme by making my arrangement an original tune.

Helpful Hints:
• Learn the hardest parts first with the correct fingering. Instead of using a slower tempo to practice longer sections, try using the actual tempo to practice overlapping shorts sections (as small as 2 notes...hands alone if needed).

• For those who have heard the recording or seen the video on • When I practice, it helps me to realize that it takes up to 300 YouTube, Steven Sharp Nelson laid down over 100 tracks, including (perfect) reps before muscle memory kicks-in. cello textures never before known possible. Every single sound on the video was made using only the instruments shown: piano, cello, • I like to imagine totally soft and relaxed hand muscles as I play... think "soft hand" when approaching hard sections. mouth percussion and kick drum. Of course we put in additional cool effects. For example the U2-style delay on Steve's pizz at the • For a two-minute-edit version, start at measure 109 beginning. (two-minute-edit minus track available at jonschmidt.com). • A recording of the orchestration only (minus piano) is available at jonschmidt.com. This is very fun for live performances with a monitor speaker next to you on stage so you can hear the parts well.

Composers

...Hildegard von Bingen Hildegard von Bingen was known for her many works in history. She is also known as Saint Hildegard. I am researching her as a composer but she was not just a composer, she was very multitalented. Hildegard von Bingen was a scientist, philosopher, and a theologian. She was a very smart woman that really wanted to experience many things to expand her mind. Hildegard von Bingen was a German woman born in 1098 in Bermersheim, Germany. As tradition in those parts of Germany when a family has their tenth child, that child will be given to God. So this meant that Hildegard was the tenth child and she will be brought up into the church. So Hildegard von Bingen manly experienced the working of the Christian lifestyle. Hildegard von Bingen was a woman whose musical work sparked minds of others. She was so remarkably different than any other female composer in the medieval era. She gained much experience while being part of the Divine office which she sang. She had many music forms that she used as a composer. Hildegard von Bingen used antiphons, responsories, sequences, and hymns. Hildegard von Bidgen was well known and will never be forgotten as a musical composer. She was laid to rest in 1179 but she still lives on in her musical work. Fierro, N. HILDEGARD OF BINGEN: SYMOHONY OF THE HARMONY OF HEAVEN. 1997. 05 Novmeber 2012 <http://www.hildegard.org/music/music.html>. "Hildegard of Bingen." The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed.. 2012.......

...Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Redirected from Wolfgang amadeus mozart) "Mozart" redirects here. For other uses, see Mozart (disambiguation). [pic] [pic] [pic] Mozart c. 1780, detail from portrait byJohann Nepomuk della Croce [pic] [pic] Mozart's signature Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (German: [ˈvɔlfɡaŋ amaˈdeus ˈmoːtsaʁt], English see fn.), baptismal name Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboardand violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and travelled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons. Mozart learned voraciously from others, and developed a brilliance and maturity of style that encompassed the light and graceful along with the dark......

Raleigh Case

...4353 OCTOBER 10, 2011 ROBERT SIMONS MICHAEL MAHONEY Raleigh & Rosse: Measures to Motivate Exceptional Service Grasping the iconic “golden horseshoe” door handle, CEO Linda Watkins strode into Raleigh & Rosse’s Palm Springs, California, store and surveyed the sales floor. Ambient lighting was subdued while hidden halogen ceiling lamps artfully spotlighted merchandise and signage. Display cases made from polished exotic woods projected visual warmth and sophistication. A harpist played Mozart crisply in the background. It was just over a week into January 2010, and the store, swept clean of holiday decorations, had bright spring colors on display. Watkins noticed many sales associates engaged with customers, but foot traffic was below expectations for a Saturday afternoon. Her cellphone rang. “Linda, I got your voicemail. Raleigh & Rosse is being sued by its sales associates in a class action lawsuit?” asked Brian Rosse. He could barely contain his anger. Watkins moved to a quiet corner of the sales floor. “Sorry, Brian. R&R was served notice late Friday,” she said. “Looks like it’s a rehash of the ‘working off the clock’ charges that we dealt with last year. Logan [R&R’s general counsel] isn’t too worried about the merits.” “But think about the negative publicity, the damage to our brand and image!” “We’ve already engaged our PR agency to work on communications strategy. This is not great news, Brian, but I’m determined to find a way to manage it. Why don’t we discuss......
