Il meglio The entire arrangement is totally astonishing. I was incredulous at first since I thought L'Orfeo wouldn't be as intriguing to me as were Handel and Beethoven. Educator Keller figures out how to pass on the excellence and astounding abilities poured down in this work to you as though you're viewing a film as opposed to examining. Astounding instructional methodology, extraordinary illustrations and historical trivia, alongside live execution. What a course.

Da migliorare Nothing.

Il meglio The course for me could have been somewhat more top to bottom musically and more, yet as dependably an intriguing course given by an incredible educator. The course was exceptionally open and clear in its design.

Da migliorare Everything OK.

Il meglio This class is truly brilliant for any starter in musicology or anybody needs to enhance their insight about L'Orfeo or all the more by and large about Baroque musical drama. It was magnificent and agreeable time.

Da migliorare Nothing bad.

Programma

Claudio Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo premiered in Mantua in 1607, and continues to be regarded as one of the most important examples of early opera. With L’Orfeo, Monteverdi helped to establish the techniques and traditions that continue to inform the genre of opera to this day. Harvard’s Thomas Forrest Kelly (Morton B. Knafel Professor of Music) guides learners through the first half of L’Orfeo, highlighting aspects of operatic form and dramatic technique, the rehearsals and cultural context for the premiere performance, and the work’s continued relevance today. There will also be a focus on Monteverdi’s life and work as a Renaissance court musician. In this music course, you will learn the basics of operatic form and analysis, the genres and styles used, and the circumstances of this opera’s first performance and subsequent history. Learners in this course need not have any prior musical experience.
