Course Description

During the late 1550s and early 1600s, while leading music countries such as France, Germany, England, and Spain were developing their specific musical languages, Italy had become the arbiter of musical tastes and practices for much of Europe. The material offered by Italian musicians was new, exciting, creative, intriguing, daring, and fantasy-laden. It became to be known as opera, oratorio, cantata, sonata, sinfonia, and concerto. At this time in history, we also see instrumental music gaining a lot more recognition and interest. This burst of creative energy went beyond the stage, music halls, and church naves. It was the first serious turn of events that changed the ways musicians, composers, and audiences related to musical expression. Even though the emphasis and attention will be on Italian productions, the rest of the European Baroque musical creations will not be overlooked!
