SUMMARY – 18TH CENTURY

  • Age of Enlightenment but not all are enlightened . . .

  • ART & IDEAS - 3 different styles (Rococo, genre, Neo-Classical) reflect overlapping and conflicting values of different social classes

  • MUSIC – Genres such as the SYMPHONY and the STRING QUARTET emerge, all emphasizing CLARITY of musical ideas and the organization of CONTRAST, as exemplified by SONATA FORM
