Product Overview

An era of continuous and far-reaching musical evolution, the Baroque period witnessed the invention of opera and oratorio and the emergence of such instrumental genres as the sonata, suite, and concerto, which continue to engage composers today. An ideal instructional package for courses in music history and literature, Music of the Baroque, Second 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 forty works from the principal traditions of the period. An opening chapter on late-Renaissance vocal music and a closing chapter on galant instrumental music provide bridges to earlier and later European music.
Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect current scholarship, this second edition ofMusic of the Baroque offers expanded coverage of instrumental music, with new sections on French lute music and the Italian trumpet sinfonia, along with enhanced discussion of chamber music from Salomone Rossi to Biber and Corelli. French sacred music also receives renewed attention. Offering models for musical criticism and analysis in a variety of compositional styles, author David Schulenberg analyzes familiar works like Monteverdi'sOrfeo and a Bach cantata as well as lesser-known compositions, including works by Barbara Strozzi and Elizabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre.
