BAROQUE MUSIC

UNIT 9 DAY 1 - 150 years of Hyperbole.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 9 Day 1 - Thirty Third Lecture of 3ESO)

Characteristics of Baroque Music.
    Hyperbole aesthetics. It is made with Basso continuous on top of which sound walls are composed, based on mechanical rhythms and the dramatic contrast between opposing elements.

 Baroque contrasts.
    Clash of the tutti and the concertino, fast and slow parts and dynamics of terraces. Other options are possible: the playfulness vs pathos, sober vs ornate, etc.



Baroque music spans century and a half, from 1600, with the first operas to Bach's death in 1750. It is characterized by its tendency to hyperbole, abusing of all kinds of emotional inflections.

UNIT 9 DAY 2 - International and National Baroque Styles.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 9 Day 2 - Thirty Fourth Lecture of 3ESO)

 Spanish Musical Baroque.
    Spain does not follow European trends, devising new types of religious music close to the Renaissance Music and 'Tonadillas escénicas'.

During the Baroque period, each country repeats the compositional formulas, but national tastes were the first steps to all kinds of new styles. In Italy the Opera and the Concert is promoted while in Germany religious music and fugue are emphasized. In England religious and theater Music are reinvented, while in France are being taken the first steps to get to Classicism.

UNIT 9 DAY 3 - Fugue.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 9 Day 3 - Thirty Fifth Lecture of 3ESO)

Elements and parts of the Fugue.
    The subject, the answer and countersubject form the thematic core. When the fugue does not sound as such we can find bridges, diversions, and estretos with pedal note.
    

Fugue is a polyphonic composition based on imitative counterpoint, in which a melody is systematically subjected to imitations and modifications of such luck that produces the feeling that the Subject or Main Melody seems pursued by himself.

What is a Fugue?
