1/24/07 (missed) New elements in musical world of 18 th century: The melodies more broken up Use of vernacular Baroque (sp?) period 1750’s (common opera Ruelln (sp?) ) Flowed naturally like speech (melodies) (appealed to a wider audience) Emotional (appeal) valued; many moods Affect -> Dominated Psychology theories changed. Flux in emotion reflected this change in theories Fugue (sp?) -> piece of melody introduced, then another mimics, then two “duke it out” Melodic Period: a complete musical thought concluded by a cadence Based on Rhetoric: analogy to a sentence Melodic Periodicity: ^^^^^^^ period: ^ (Bryce’s Note: imagine series of lambdas) The music is very listener-focused (difference in audience target: Mozart -> composed for court/aristocracy) Opera Buffa: Italian comic opera Full length w/ 6+ singing characters (sung throughout as opposed to speeches) Aimed @ wider audience Used stock characters (typical archetypes/stereotypes)
