Baroque & Bach
Transcript of Baroque & Bach
Viola da Gamba
Timpani The Brandenburg Concertos are a collection of six musical pieces by Bach. He named them so because he presented the collection to a rich man, Christian Ludwig Brandenburg. These pieces are thought to be Bach's most popular works. They are almost guaranteed to make one feel better if one is in a sad or grouchy mood. Bach was never thanked in any way by Brandenburg for this gift. These six pieces were never played in Bach's lifetime. Fate of Bach's Music Many music lovers cared less for Baroque music toward the end of Bach's life. Baroque music was too difficult to appreciate. It sounded old-fashioned. People wanted simple and lighter music. Musicians around the world were introducing new music. Even though Bach realized that a new style of music was developing, he would not budge from the Baroque style. He was quite stubborn. Bach's music faded away with him. It took a hundred years before Bach's music was rediscovered. The New Beginning So now, we all know about the Baroque period, and Bach. He is really quite the musician, right? He showed us all what a beautiful place our world is. He had a fairly short life of sixty-five years, and yet accomplished a lot. He showed us how we can achieve more if we put our best effort into the things we are doing. He is an inspiration to all the people who believe that he did a great job. Baroque music is a type of music that was composed in the Baroque period. It is tuneful and very organized. It has a kind of grand and decorative feeling. The melodies tend to be highly decorated and elaborate. Typical qualities include contrasts between soft and strong, chorus and solo, and voices and instruments. Three major Baroque composers were Antonio Lucio Vivaldi of Italy, Johann Sebastian Bach, and George Frideric Handel, both from Germany. Some musicians who lived in the Baroque period didn't compose any Baroque music! Baroque Music Baroque Bach Me playing J. S. Bach's Minuet I (BWV 822)
