Desire and Pleasure in Seventeenth-Century Music

University of California Press

The prologue brings us to the composers who might be regarded as the first champions of tonality: the artists who cemented the standard forms and procedures that underwrote eighteenth-century repertories, thereby delimiting the often-wild exuberance of seventeenth-century experimentation. Their choices have appeared overdetermined to those waiting for the advent of tonal forms, but they ought to look rather different in light of the earlier chapters in Desire and Pleasure. The book concludes with a cluster of composers who sometimes turned for strategic purposes to the resources available only within modality.

Keywords:   Alessandro Stradella, Arcangelo Corelli, Giacomo Carissimi, J. S. Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven
