Neo-classic/Enlightenment Era Neo=new “Age of Reason” – historical intellectual movement – ideas of Greece and Rome Marked by rationality, ethics, aesthetics, and knowledge Get away from superstition (magic), irrationality, and tyranny of dark ages Enlightenment – framework for American and French revolution
Continued Birth of capitalism, socialism, liberalism, and fascism Arts important way of spreading knowledge and serving the state’s needs State created arts academies – served the state’s needs and ideas – created qualifications and diplomas Women recognized in the arts for first time Public museums and art galleries created
Classical Music Polyphony replaced by homophonic (melody supported by system of harmony) Use of chords – more audible Movement centered in/around Vienna Begins in 1750’s and 60’s Reached maturity in 70’s and 80’s – around the time of the American & French revolutions
Mozart First symphony (musical work made up of 4 movements separated by silence) at age 8 Amadeus means “loved by God” Austrian Emperor Joseph II accused his music of “too many notes” Spread his reputation in Vienna by publishing, playing the piano and having an opera performed in 1782 (the first one you saw in the movie)
Mozart Composed 15 piano concertos (composition for an orchestra and soloist) by 1786 Served as composer and soloist in his works Final compositions included Clarinet Concerto and pieces for his Masonic lodge Unable to finish his Requiem Possible causes of death – Flu, Mercury poisoning (medicine), Kidney illness, Rheumatic fever Buried in a Vienna suburb with little ceremony and in an unmarked grave (even the second one he was buried in)
Haydn Trained as a choirboy and taken to St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna, in mid 1700’s Became freelance musician and accompanyist Played violin and keyboard Wrote sacred music, music for theatre comedies, and chamber music Seen as the “father of the symphony and string quartet” – did not originate them At his funeral in 1809 Mozart’s Requiem was performed
Beethoven Exact date of birth unknown (likely 12/16/1770) Father gave instruction in piano, violin, and viola First public concert was on March 26, 1778 at age 7 (same day as his death 49 years later) 1802 – found out his impaired hearing was incurable and would worsen
Beethoven Became very productive despite hearing impairment Aristocracy of Vienna supported him generously and were tolerant of his rude & insensitive manners, careless appearance, and towering rages From end of 1790’s, he was no longer dependent on patronage for income Sometimes took several years to refine an idea before satisfied
Beethoven Ideas usually written in sketchbooks which he constantly carried Death in 1827 – said that 10,000 people were at his funeral Became public figure before death – unlike any musicians before Bridged classical of Mozart and Haydn with Romantic period that followed
