Baroque So here, I am going to do music and society in this course, there is a question confused me a lot before I started, what is the order I should make for this course, should I start with like Chopin, Mozart, or Beethoven to catch your attention? Or follow the right music period to introduce Baroque music first, based on my experience, Baroque music is very bored, full of religious flavour, the melody also ordinary, However, I think follow the right order can make you understand the track of the development of music industry more effetely, there fore I decide to talk about Baroque music first. So firstly, what is “baroque” The word baroque derives from the ancient Portuguese noun "barroco” which is a pearl that is not round and elaborate shape. Do not have any connection with music. Hence, in informal usage, the word baroque can simply mean that something is "elaborate", The term baroque refers to music written during the period extending roughly from 1600 to 1750, beginning with the first attempts at opera in Italy, and ending with the death of Johann Sebastian Bach, whose works represent the peak of the era's contrapuntal style. The composers of the baroque era tried to use their music to express intense emotions. As a result, music became much more dramatic than it had ever been before. Further, religious music was considered to be as a very important music in the baroque era. And most of the best music of earlier times was composed for church, god.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
