With almost all exclusive material, the album is exposing an elegant diversity and depth of style from the most innovative worldwide producers in the genre. The opera seria sinfonia was quite typical of the early pre-classical period, says Grout, because of its light texture and standardized harmonic formulas. [7] The ordinary recitative that was used in opera seria was the recitativo secco, or, as it was called at the time, the recitativo semplice, which consisted of the typical recitative-style vocal line set to a continuo accompaniment of harpsichord and a stringed bass instrument.

He's accused of "taking" Christine from Erik, having a bad temper, interfering where he doesn't belong, and many other bad attributes that I won't name here. Dancing masters taught the steps to the nobility, and the court participated in the performances. These were considered the most important kinds of music for performance and hence enjoyed greatest success in the public estimation. Accidentals were not always specified, somewhat as in certain fingering notations (tablatures) today.

But I like SOAD because they are actually different from most of the schlock out there. Most people think of Mozart as the great symphonic writer, or the composer of beautiful piano concertos but he was a truly operatic composer. Acrostic, in which the first letters of the lines, when read downward, form a word, phrase, or sentence. The setting was usually for four or five voices with no instrumental accompaniment, although instruments were probably added in performance at times. Many of the first musical sound films were generally heavy-handed, stage-bound adaptations of operettas that looked much like photographed stage plays.

The large number of dedications to gentry and noble patrons in England in lute and madrigal collections is one indication of their likely audience, but the presence of merchants and tradespeople among the dedicatees suggests that private performance was not limited to elites. Richard Strauss (1864-1949) followed in Wagner’s footsteps using even more lush orchestrations, introducing dissonance (clashing tonal centers) as an expressive and descriptive tool to underline the drama.
