Baroque Music


Course description

Baroque music represents outrageously expressive and epic forms of communication. Come experience the pomp and splendor of Baroque music—bold in gesture and conception, vigorous, decorative, and monumental. Discover how music of this era was bolstered to new heights of virtuosity and opulence, amid socio-cultural tensions between two opposing masses: poverty-luxury, idealism-oppression. We examine what is unique to the Baroque spirit through a series of easy and fun exercises. We listen to the innovative treatments of musical elements (rhythm, melody, harmony)—particularly as “rhetorical” or symbolic expressions. Importantly, we focus on how these elements intertwine and unfold in new musical forms—the opera, the instrumental sonata, and the concerto—unique to the Baroque spirit.

No previous musical knowledge necessary.
