Transcript of Baroque Music Project

Baroque At the age of 18, Bach decided to become an organist.
He got married to his cousin, Maria Barbara. The happiest period of Bach’s life was his time spent as KAPELLMEISTER or Director of Music at the court of Anhault Cothen. Bach's second wife, Anna Magdalena.was a professional singer. Bach wrote the famous Clavier-Büchlein, a book of keyboard pieces and songs for her. It contained music by himself and other composers, including Bach's oldest son Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. Baroque is a period of artistic styles which followed the Renaissance era. Baroque started in the 1600 in Rome Italy and spread out to most of Europe. The Baroque era ended in around 1750. "Baroque" was more applying to art rather than music during this time. It was only in the 20th century when "Baroque" referred to a time in music history. Fact: The word "baroque" came from the Italian word "barocco" meaning bizarre.

Bach- Baroque Masterpieces (Baroque) 2 Other Famous Composers of the Baroque era Invention No.13 in A minor by J.S.Bach Antonio Vivaldi (Famous for his "Four Seasons") George Fridereick Handel (Successful for his "Messiah") BWV 784 In this piece, Bach expressed the dynamics in this piece quite well,
with forte at the beginning, becoming piano in the middle and ends with
a strong ending. We know that this piece belongs to the Baroque era because:
A) Johann Sebastian Bach is a Baroque composer.
B) The notes are more complicated, with a lot of eighth notes
and even sixteenth notes. Usually, in Baroque music, the
notes are more complicated than other types on music.
There's a lot of slurs at the end of several bars, and crescendo and
decrescendos at the very end. The melody was at the beginning and near the end of this song. All these are characteristics of Baroque Music. THANK YOU EVERYONE By: Susanna JingJing 8E Music Styles Interesting Fact:
