  • The City - TV Tropes
    it tends to feature a younger hipper crowd than the usual Dom Com People are also more cynical in The City and the Deadpan Snarker abounds There is also public transportation which is a good place to get Post Robbery Trauma Combine with a bit of dystopian political corruption and a Rogues Gallery of unrepentant lawbreakers and it s the perfect place for the Superhero to set up shop In the land of television The City is also full of really big apartments which even a twentysomething who s just starting out professionally can totally afford A few cities have their own special quirks especially CSI s Las Vegas For the most part The City will feature sprawling central business districts vibrant ethnic neighborhoods industrial zones and decaying ghettos Note that the distinction between The City and Suburbia is not always clear cut many shows set in The City might deal more with the residential neighborhoods making it feel like Suburbia with rowhouses Full House The Cosby Show Family Matters At the other end of the spectrum a show set officially in Suburbia may show an assortment of local businesses events and institutions that you would typically only find in a city The Simpsons Buffy the Vampire Slayer However these towns tend to be fictional Springfield in particular tends to go from largish city to suburb depending on the needs of the episode The peculiar interplay of aspects of Suburbia and The City in the real world city of Baltimore Maryland rural sensibilities high population density wacky crime has made it a popular choice in recent years for Crime and Punishment Series Homicide Life On The Street The Wire While not primarily a cop show police work typically figures into the B plots of Joan of Arcadia which is set

  • Classical Music - TV Tropes
    Johann Pachelbel which uses a much copied chord progression and the Messiah oratorio by George Frederic Handel which includes the famous Hallelujah Chorus The concerto a piece where a solo instrument or small group of instruments alternates passages with a larger orchestra became a major compositional form during this period as composers like Girolamo Frescobaldi began to focus much more of their attention to instrumental writing This was also the period in which the common practice tonality came into well common practice Other common features in this era include terraced dynamics the music is either loud or soft with few crescendos or diminuendos or so forth and a reduction in polyphonic density so that the words and the melodic lines come through much clearer often to the point of actual homophony simply having a melody on top of a harmonic accompaniment Additionally the early Baroque was when Claudio Monteverdi arguably the most important composer along with Heinrich Schütz in the transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque wrote what is widely considered the first great opera L Orfeo A few of the many other notable Baroque composers include Johann Jakob Froberger François Couperin Jan Dismas Zelenka Antonio Vivaldi Jean Philippe Rameau and Domenico Scarlatti Though the harpsichord predates the Baroque it is stereotypically associated with this era if you hear a piece of classical music and there s a harpsichord in it there s a good chance it s a Baroque piece though the instrument was still in use during the early Classical period and some modern era composers like Elliot Carter have also used it The Classical Era or Classical Period not to be confused with Classical Mythology c 1730 to c 1820 Think of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven While counterpoint was still respected this era saw the growth of homophony or having a melody on top of a chord based accompaniment Joseph Haydn was very influential in the development of the sonata form which became a dominant musical form in this period The piano replaced the harpsichord as the dominant keyboard instrument and music became increasingly independent of religious activity Concertos began giving way to symphonies Music also began to be written for ensembles such as the traditional string quartet The Romantic Era or Romantic Period note Romantic in the original sense of fiery and passionate literally in the manner of the Romans not the Victorian sense of soppy and sentimental c 1810 to c 1910 Composers started pushing the limits of their styles and instruments Sounds became lusher textures denser harmonies became more chromatic orchestras bigger and music more dramatic than ever before The sustaining pedal on the piano the one that holds notes down without having to keep your fingers on the keys became popular Famous composers included Fryderyk Chopin Fantaisie Impromptu Revolutionary Étude Franz Liszt Dante Sonata Johannes Brahms Brahms s Lullaby Ein Deutsches Requiem Richard Wagner Ride of the Valkyries is from one of his operas His style set the standards for epic film music through today Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker ballet amongst others Beethoven is often considered to be a Romantic composer for instance the Fifth Symphony Programme music telling a story or depicting scenes as opposed to abstract music and music reminiscent of particular folk styles became popular Some people consider Beethoven to be the first Romantic Era composer as he started or inspired many of the trends to come in this period It s also important to note that the Romantic style never really goes away Sergei Rachmaninoff and Edward Elgar were essentially romantics yet wrote most of their music in the 20th century Andrew Lloyd Webber and John Williams are romantic to their very bones although they aren t always considered true classical Composers due to their focus on Musicals and Film Music as well as simpler styles This is not pretension like some would say just a fact of cataloguing The Early Twentieth Century Exactly What It Says on the Tin Composers pushed the limits of musical understanding and style even more resulting in things like atonality music with no key at all and neoclassicism imitating though with obvious differences in rhythm and tonality earlier styles Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel the most famous impressionist composers began to discard the common practice tonality of earlier periods Serialism a method of composition based on the continuous transformations of a series of musical elements began to be used heavily starting with the twelve tone system of Arnold Schoenberg and his Second Viennese School Trends were all over the place some composers became very interested in Folk Music and Ethnic Music such as Béla Bartók others channelled the social and political turmoil into their works Sergei Prokofiev Dmitri Shostakovich and Igor Stravinsky while some combined Classical with popular styles George Gershwin whose origins were with jazz had heavily classical elements in his work That last category would eventually give rise to the show tunes of Broadway Picking a representative example our of all this variety is impossible the defining characteristic of early 20th century classical music is the absence of defining characteristics But try out the ballets of Stravinsky The Firebird The Rite of Spring Petrushka for just one of several styles The Later Twentieth Century to the Present during which all the tendencies of the earlier part of the twentieth century were pushed even further During the 1960s the mainstream classical music world was heavily influenced by the Darmstadt School whose members such as Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez pushed the serialism of Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Anton Webern to its extreme Edgard Varese a major influence on Frank Zappa began to experiment with electronic music while other composers began to use scales different from the traditional twelve tone equal temperament scale Iannis Xenakis pioneered the use of mathematical modelling in music Meanwhile minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass experimented with music that used very few basic elements often repeated with variations In
