Music in our life.
People all over the world are fond of music. There are a lot of different kinds of music. Some of them appeared long ago, and some are modern.
Let’s speak about classical music. There are different musical genres: symphony, concerto, chamber music, vocal music, opera and ballet. Classical music gives people delight, pleasure, partly sensual, partly intellectual. It is also a complex of emotions, excitement and at the same time., love for others and a desire to do something for people. When listening to classical music people have to combine all their feelings into one and it is happiness. Classical music contains the powerful appeal for listeners, it addresses both our senses and intellect. Some musical pieces are based on the theme of struggle of good against evil. This theme is very actual today.
There are a lot of outstanding composers and orchestras in the world. And you can listen to music by L. Beethoven, W. Mozart, B. Britten, G. Gershvin, P. Tchaikovsky and others everywhere. Today one can also listen to original interpretations of classical music, because some people think that classical music is a complicated art and they want the kind of music to which they can dance or just talk to friends. It should be simple, cheerful and up-to-date.
That’s why many young people today are gravitating towards new rhythms. These rhythms help them to express their individuality. Pop is short for “popular”, and there has always been popular music. But until the 1950s there wasn’t a style of music just for young people. That all changed when rock-and-roll began. Since then, hundreds of styles and stars have come and gone.
In the 1980s such style as rave was introduced new styles such as rap and reggae have been also introduced under the influence of Afro-American culture. Rap music came from the USA, and is the form of poetry that involves chanting to a strong beat. Today it is common to hear rap on TV commercials as well as on the radio. Pop music is a kind of global language, a really unusual, exciting one , too. It cuts across all the barriers – age, colour, class, religion – and brings people together. It’s a way of sharing all teens hopes and fears.
Generation – поколение
Chamber music – камерная музыка
Delight – восторг, радость
Partly sensual, partly intellectual – частично чувственная, частично интеллектуальная
Desire – желание
Powerful appeal - мощный призыв
Struggle of good against evil – борьба добра со злом
To gravitate – тянуться
To involve – включать
Chanting to a strong beat – декламация под сильные удары муз. Инструмента
To cut across all barriers – разрушить все барьеры

Dialogue № 1.
Will you turn off the radio-set? I’m tired of this terrible sort of music!
It’s not so terrible as you think. It’s just modern. Shall I try another programme?
All right, will you try the programme of classical music then? It is quiter, more harmonizing.
Shall we listen to Mozart? It’s too boring!
You’re wrong! Itn’t it wonderful? I’ll be sorry when the concert is over.
What music are you fond of?
I don’t listen to much rock and pop these days. I prefer classical music. Well, pop’s lost its direction, I think. Everything is controlled by machines and technology. Ten or twenty years ago there were real artists writing real songs – now all you get is synthesizers and dance music. It’ll like wallpaper, everything sounds the same.
And I think pop music is better today than ever before. There are the stars from all over the world – lots of different styles and images. It’s great!
Sometimes I agree with you, sometimes I don’t. I can’t understand why some people take music so seriously. Why to argue about which song is better? You can just relax and enjoy music, or not listen to it.
And I think, of course, there’s a lot of rubbish in pop music, but there are lots of pop stars, too. That’s the matter of choice.
By the way, I hear in Australia taped pop music is used to frighten the sharks off the public beaches. Obviously the sharks’ nerves cannot endure this kind of noise.
