Topic: 1750 in music

Related Topics

In the News (Mon 15 Jul 19)

Later, during the early-to-mid 1900s, the term baroque was applied by association to music of the 17th and early 18th century, and today the term baroque has come to refer to a very clearly definable type or genre of music which originated, broadly speaking, around 1600 and came to fruition between 1700 and 1750.
Every period in music has certain recognizable clichés, and much of what is typical in baroque music, specific cadences and snatches of melody, can be traced back to one Arcangelo Corelli, who seems to have influenced just about everybody, from his Italian contemporaries and students to Handel who sojourned in Rome from 1704 to 1710.
Many a composer's fortunes rose or fell with the status accorded to music at the court in which he was serving, and composer-musicians would try to seek a position in a city or court where music was known, for the time being anyway, to be thriving under the patronage of an enthusiastic king or prince.

Music conventionally described as Baroque encompasses a wide range of styles from a wide geographic region, mostly in Europe, composed during a period of approximately 150 years.
Baroque music was more often written for virtuoso singers and instrumentalists, and is characteristically harder to perform than Renaissance music, although idiomatic instrumental writing was one of the most important innovations of the period.
In Classical music, which followed the Baroque, the role of counterpoint was diminished (albeit repeatedly rediscovered and reintroduced; see fugue), and replaced by a homophonic texture.

Music thus written is called "contrapuntal," or "polyphonic." The latter term means "many-voiced." In polyphonic music, harmony is an incidental result of the simultaneous progression of the voices.
The polyphonic music was first written for voices, and for the service of the church.
For these instruments the polyphonic music was written, and with the year of Bach's death, 1750, this first classical period may be said to have closed.

 What is Early Music?
Precise date-based definitions of the stylistic periods of Western music, and by implication of "early music" in sum, are a rather illusory goal.
Baroque music has its origins in the rise of the recitative style among Monteverdi and others, the beginning of opera as a form, and the consequent adoption of basso continuo.
By the 1950s, early music was a definite phenomenon, with such performers as Safford Cape, Alfred Deller, Noah Greenberg, etc. Since then, the number of early music performers has increased steadily, as has audience interest, to the point where early music sales are more or less equal to those of non-early classical music.
