M-LT 71312 - Bach, Handel, Vivaldi
This course considers three composers at a single moment in time: 1724. In this year, Bach premiered the John Passion in Leipzig, Handel introduced Julius Caesar to London audiences, and in Rome, Vivaldi's spectacular opera Giustino was performed for the first time. Themes and threads not visible in a single-composer course emerge from this type of study: the far-reaching influence of the castrato, shared principles for musical borrowing and recycling, and evidence of an increasingly cosmopolitan style of composition. Minor works by contemporary composers fill out this survey of classical music in 1724.
