Course Content (Syllabus)
The 17th century is a period where musical textures such as monody, basso continuo and Konzertprinzip are defined and constitute important musical genres such as opera, oratorio, cantata, sonata, concerto). This course is explicitly focused on instrumental music from 1600 onwards. Its evolution is examined through the social norms and musical life conditions of the period, development of musical instruments within national traditions (Italian string tradition, French keyboard and lute tradition, Viol consort, German Organ tradition etc.), musical genres (suita, sonata and trio-sonata, concerto, toccata, fantasia, canzona, ricercare, fuga, fancy, ground), composers and works. Students attend seminars by specialists on the performance of 17th-century music (8 hrs.), visit conferences or attend concerts of Baroque music (like the Baroque Music Festival of Thessaloniki - until 10 hrs.), and perform in the classroom in repertory of 17-th century music (study + performance = 30 hrs).
