9780199942015: Music of the Baroque

Music of the Baroque, Third Edition, and its accompanying anthology of scores offer a vivid introduction to European music from 1600 through 1750. Integrating historical and cultural context with composer biography, music analysis, and performance practice, the text surveys Baroque music while analyzing in depth more than thirty works from the principal traditions of the period. It also places special emphasis on the evolution of instruments and performance practices, showing how the period shaped them into what we know today.

Organized by chronology and genre, the third edition expands the discussion of social and cultural issues through new sidebars on women in music, gender and the castrato voice, the relationship of music to ethnicity and colonialism, and other key areas of study. Also new are contemporary perspectives, including writings by composers Caccini and Couperin and critics Artusi, Scheibe, and Burney.

Visit the companion website at www.oup.com/us/schulenberg for a discography of the scores included in the anthology (with links to online recordings), sample worksheets, and supplementary musical scores

About the Author:


David Schulenberg is Department Chair and Professor of Music at Wagner College. He is the author of The Music of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (2014); The Music of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (2010); The Keyboard Music of J.S. Bach (2006); and numerous articles. He performs and records on harpsichord and other historical keyboard instruments.

Review:

I suspect that most teachers of the baroque period will know and recommend the volume. It reads well, and given the space, it manages to offer some detail on the music selected for attention. * Clifford Bartlett, Early Music Review *

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This textbook is a concise survey of European music from 1600 through 1750 and is designed for junior/senior level courses in Baroque music. These are the centuries of the composers Palestrina, Monteverdi, Schutz, Lully, and Bach-years that saw the culminating development of the polyphonic motet and madrigal, the invention of opera and oratorio, and the emergence of such instrumental genres as sonata, suite, and concerto, key forms in which composers have continued to write to the present day. The text features a survey of Baroque vocal music organized by chronology and genre, followed by chapters on keyboard music and instrumental music, and an epilogue on the gallant style that emphasizes the continuation of that tradition into what we call the Classical style. The text balances historical context with musical analysis, emphasizes interpretation and the music s historical performing practices, and provides concise definitions of terms and basic explanations of key theoretical issues. The author s website includes a discography there for the scores included in the anthology. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780199942015
