Johann Phillip Kirnberger

Born on April 24th, 1721, in Saalfeild, Germany, Johann was a very well known and advanced composer. Not only was he a composer, but he was a musical theorist, musician, and he even wrote a bit of church music as well. Kirnberger was so talented, in fact, he was an apprentice of Johann Sebastian Bach. The talented man lived and worked in Poland for powerful magnates including Lubomirski, Poninski, and Rzewuski before finally ending up at the Benedictine Cloister in Lvov. This all happened between the years of 1741 and 1751. Sadly, Kirnberger died in the year of 1758.

Myself

My name is Lauren Haugrud. Being in Choir as well as band, I keep up with a busy schedule here at Discovery. I have two dogs and love to play and smother them both in love. Very much enjoying playing the flute, I practice as much as I can make the time for. Dancing on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have to find a schedule to make time for big projects and assignments, however, as I am aware, many people have it much worse.

My Song: Menuett

Menuett is completed with many fascinating strides and accomplishments. For one thing, it sets variety. It speeds up and slows down many times throughout the piece. There are slurs which make the song more interesting to listen to. When I listen to Menuett I feel like it is a very beautiful and relaxing song.

What I learned

I have learned many things from this song. First of all, I learned some definitions. Not only was I fascinated by what I was playing, but how I was playing. I learned to evaluate my entire piece while playing it. This is so that I do not miss any musical terms while playing. Also, I have realized it is quite a bit more doable to play a piece as a solo than I thought it was.
