Question Get Answer It’s 1939 at Café Society in Greenwich Village. The club opened just last year as the first racially integrated nightclub in the U.S., and you and a friend have been enjoying a performance by up-and-coming singer, Billie Holiday. Throughout her performance, Holiday has roamed from table to table, singing love songs and charming the audience with her unique voice and wry sense of humor. Suddenly the lights dim and you notice that the waiters have stopped serving. A murmur passes through the excited crowd, and then everyone goes quiet. The piano starts to play a somber introduction. A single spotlight illuminates Holiday’s face, her eyes closed. The song is “Strange Fruit.” The spotlight goes out with the final note and when the lights come back on, Holiday is gone. Your friend turns to you, completely baffled by the spectacle. “What was that all about?” (s)he says.Task: In the form of a dialog, explain to your friend what “Strange Fruit” is about and why Holiday chose to end her show that way. Your explanation should include discussion of: -some background of the phenomenon of lynching in this country -the origins of the song -what the words mean -the risk that Holiday is undertaking in performing it

On July 22nd, Music critic, Mark Swed published a commentary in the Los Angeles Times, entitled Bach wrote BWV 82 to transcend tragedy. It’s a lullaby for our times too (Links to an external site.). Click here for a PDF of the article.Here is a link (Links to an external site.) to a live performance sung by Christian Gerhaher on YouTube.Here is a spotify list (Links to an external site.) of two performances, Lorraine Hunt Lieberson as a soloist, and a recording by the Oxford Schola Cantorum with an uncredited soloist. (The Oxford recording uses Baroque tuning and will sound a half step lower than Hunt Lieberson’s recording.)Assignment:1) Read the article and listen to the music. If you can’t access Spotify or YouTube, a search of “BWV 82” will lead you to a recording.2) Reflect on your own response to the music in light of Mark Swed’s commentary. How are your responses similar and how are they different?3) Reflect on the music you have been listening to the past 4 months (since mid-March). Select one piece that has somehow brought you peace of mind, catharsis, or an emotional outlet. Identify that piece and the artist(s) who created/produced it. Write about the way in which the music affected you, and, assuming that you have listened to this music more than once, whether you ritualized it into your life routines or just reach for it when you have a specific need. In either case, talk about that need.Please write 350 words for your post.Response:1) In your response to a classmate, compare your own response to the Bach with theirs.2) Listen to the music that they shared (assuming you can find it) and reflect on what role it might play in your life. If you can’t find a recording focus on how they use the music and whether you use music in the same way.Write 150 words for the response.The “Ich habe genug, BWV 82” music piece shocked me the first time I heard it. Although I don’t understand the language, the melody of this piece of music is too beautiful, and there is a feeling of psychological trauma being healed. This piece of music has a poetic melody. It gives people a religious shock like a devout believer praying. The violin’s weeping tone is pure and sweet, expressing inner peace and hope. In an instant, all fatigue and sorrow disappeared in smoke, and happiness came to my heart. Life is heavy, life is better.My comment is similar to Mark Swed’s comment in that we all appreciate this musical work, and we all find it shocking. The difference is that after listening to this music, my feelings are more focused on the melody itself. It may be because I am not a professional music appreciator, so I have no attitude towards professional knowledge. I can only distinguish from the melody. The quality of the work, in other words, is my preference. But in Mark Swed’s comment, he analyzed it thoroughly. He started from the musical work itself. He analyzed the background and content.In the past 4 months, the music work that most influenced me was “Cry On My Shoulder.” The song was sung by Deutschland Sucht den Superstar (DSDS). “Cry On My Shoulder” is a standard inspirational song performed by the singers of the German talent show. “Don’t forget to cry on my shoulder when you are helpless, I will be by your side and still share with you with love.” People can sing to their most precious friends, or they can sing to their scarred hearts. I would sleep with this song every night last month because I think its melody is very beautiful, the lyrics are also very inspirational, and it gives me a feeling of positive energy.
