Unit 3 The Enjoyment of Music- Prelude 4, “Music as Order and Logic” The Enlightenment movement is popular during the classical period, stressing ideals of reason and logic at the core of human thinking. Classical music mostly defined by the master of the Viennese School- Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, and their successor Franz Schubert. The Enjoyment of Music- Ch. 28, “Musical Conversations: Haydn and Classical Chamber Music” Varying a theme’s melodic outline, rhythm, or harmony is considered thematic development. A motive is a small melodic or rhythmic unit of a theme. When treated in sequence, it is repeated at higher and lower levels. Absolute music is music where there is no prescribed text or story to hold the music together. Form is very important here. The second movement of a multimovement cycle generally uses theme and variations, and is slow, lyrical, andante, or adagio. The Enjoyment of Music- Ch. 29, “The Ultimate Instrument: Haydn and the Symphony” The Italian overture was an orchestral piece in three sections, fast-slow-fast. Usually first played to introduce an opera. These grew into symphonies, where the early German symphonists added “rocket themes”, gradual crescendos, and dance movements in the form of elegant minuets. The classical orchestra is a mix of all the instrument families. Classical orchestra uses a dynamic style of writing in which all instruments participate actively. 2
