Four centuries of music history which will make the pupils enjoy classical music.

Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) is zonder twijfel de belangrijkste componist geweest uit de boeiende periode waarin de renaissance overging in de barok. In deze periode componeerde Monteverdi aanvankelijk zuiver vocale madrigalen. Vanaf de eeuwwisseling schrijft hij steeds meer madrigalen die door instrumenten worden begeleid. In 1607 verscheen zijn eerste opera, Orfeo. Zijn tweede opera, L´incoronazione di Poppea, is een grote stap vooruit in het genre. Ook in de religieuze muziek heeft Monteverdi baanbrekend werk geschreven, zoals de Mariavespers. Leo Samama behandelt in vier uur het leven en werk van deze unieke en veelzijdige componist die al bij leven internationale bekendheid genoot. Hij gebruikt daarbij tal van muziekvoorbeelden van CD en op piano. Inhoud: Hoofdstuk 1: Tussen Cremona, Mantua en Venetië, Hoofdstuk 2: Monteverdi´s levensloop tussen hof en kerk, Hoofdstuk 3: Polyfonie en imitatio, Hoofdstuk 4: Prima en secunda prattica, Hoofdstuk 5: Chromatiek en madrigalismen, Hoofdstuk 6: De vroege madrigaaltechniek van Monteverdi, Hoofdstuk 7: Zefiro Torna, Hoofdstuk 8: Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda, Hoofdstuk 9: L´Orfeo, favola in musica, Hoofdstuk 10: Van de Orfeo naar Poppea.PLEASE NOTE: when you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1.

From Gregorian chant to Bach´s Brandenburg Concerti, the music of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods is both beautiful and intriguing, expanding our horizons as it nourishes our souls. In this Very Short Introduction, Thomas Forrest Kelly provides not only a compact overview of the music itself, but also a lively look at the many attempts over the last two centuries to revive it. Kelly shows that the early-music revival has long been grounded in the idea of spontaneity, of excitement, and of recapturing experiences otherwise lost to us--either the rediscovery of little-known repertories or the recovery of lost performing styles, with the conviction that, with the right performance, the music will come to life anew. Blending musical and social history, he shows how the Early Music movement in the 1960s took on political overtones, fueled by a rebellion against received wisdom and enforced conformity. Kelly also discusses ongoing debates about authenticity, the desirability of period instruments, and the relationship of mainstream opera companies and symphony orchestras to music that they often ignore, or play in modern fashion. 1.

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe´s finest cities... We´ll start at the Duomo, Florence´s vast cathedral, and tell you not only how the magnificent dome was created but how this remarkable piece of engineering was one of the cornerstones of the Renaissance.

We´ll show where Florence´s smartest cafés are and then take you into the Palazzo Vecchio, and then the Ponte Vecchio, and explain what all those padlocks on its railings are about. Then, into Oltrarno, and we´ll talk about the history of the Palazzo Pitti and its connection with opera as well as explaining what is so vitally important to the history of art about a small fresco in the Brancacci chapel.
