Baroque Era

  • artwork becomes dramatic and theatrical
  • Space is played with
  • the greatest of the scultpures and architects- BERNINI
  • a scene is created with often more than one character

  • baroque music and art go along with each other

  • Bernini alter piece-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sant'Andrea.jpg
  • bernini influenced all of Rome in the Baroque time period
  • multiple parts to music scores- additions to the harpsichord and organ
    • counterparts
    • one melody with another melody playing in harmony to each other 
    • ex. bach inventions
  • we move in the baroque period from a unified composition to somehting with many parts doing a distinct part
    • if you took out the violo there wouldn't be cohesiveness
    • if you took out the cold in the alter piece it would be beautiful but unable to be understood
  • File Ruben's Adoration
  • there is movement and there is many different parts

  • ART BRINGS YOU INTO IT
  • ARCHITECTURE BRINGS YOU INTO IT
    MUSIC BRINGS YOU INTO IT
