M-LT 71319 - Renaissance Madrigal
This seminar considers the music-text relationship in the Italian madrigal during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. We will focus on three aspects of this topic, including evolving themes of love and sensuality in the first half of the sixteenth century; the emerging concept of the composer and performer as a "musical orator" around the mid-sixteenth century; and the shift from the balanced polyphony of the early Renaissance to the experimentation and extravagance of composers such as Luca Marenzio, Carlo Gesualdo, and Claudio Monteverdi in the decades surrounding the turn of the seventeenth century.
