MUSIC OF THE CLASSICAL PERIOD

UNIT 11 DAY 1 - The Classical Period.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 11 Day 1 - Forty-First Lecture of 3ESO)

Features of Classicism.
    Idealism, positivism, formal perfection and proportion.

Classicism (Classical Period Music) comprises the second half of the eighteenth century and the first two decades of the nineteenth century. It is characterized by its idealistic and positivist stance that seeks perfection of form. If art is provided, the human being that produces and by extension the society in which he lives is harmonic. This optimistic attitude leads to create a stream of free thinkers known by the name of illustration.

 Different Kinds of Sonatas..
    Monothematics or bithematics, depending on whether you have one or two main melodies in the exposure.
    

The most advanced form of composition of classicism is the symphony and is based on a first movement called sonata form. It presents the AABA structure where part A is exposition and B development. Part A has one or two issues that are linked by bridges. The second movement is slow and has the shape of Lied ABA.
