The word itself comes from the portuguese barocco, meaning a deformed pearl The term later assumed a negative conotation, meaning abnormal, bizarre, exaggerated, grotesque, bad taste, or what Germans might call kitsch (bad or cheap imitation of artworks) or even schund, tresh, garbage 1920s: the term was brought back by musicologists who applied it to mean a period of some century and a half in history of European music, spanning the 17th and the first half of the 18th centuries or roughly between 1600-1750 Like in the Renaissance, Italy was the main region of musical influence, although France developed its own style, as well as Germany European courts, such as that of Louis XIV of France (r. 1643-1715) Academies, a new type of private urban associations which promoted arts, music, 'high culture and learning', sciences, something like elitist salons based on other than aristocratic merits or membership The Baroque era was the time partially simultaneous to the 18th century Enlightenment, during which sciences, arts, and literature saw a great production of works, new scientific inventions and discoveries, and a great plead of outstanding personalities Prima pratica, the 'first practice', which was also known as Stile antico, the 'old style' Seconda pratica, the 'second practice', also known as Stile moderno, the 'modern style' this was one of the typical textures of a great part of the Baroque music, and a new emphasis on the firm, i.e. fixed and emphasized bass, and the florid treble composers would provide the bass and treble (cantus or soprano) lines, and the rest, i.e. the intermediary voices, would be filled in by performers in a way of improvisation a new system of notation was invented for basso continuo: the main melody in the treble was usually a solo singing, while the bass part was played as an accompaniment on a continuo instrument, such as harpsichord, organ or lute composer would then put the numbers or figures below the bass line -- hence the name, figured bass these figures stood for the tones improvised as chordal fillers on top of the bass line which was 'thoroughly' written out, and which usually represented the root tones of the chords played performers would then fill in the remaining tones of chords, making harmonies to accompany the main melody in the treble this 'filling' of chords was known as ripieno, which in Italian means 'stuffing' Tonality and basso continuo were probbly the most crucial musical concepts and practices that changed the texture and general charactersitics of European music from its contrapuntal, polyphonic and linear-melodic texture to homophonic and chordal-harmonic texture (see Equal Temperament, below) As such, opera may be understood as musical drama with narratives, actions and affections expressed in musical monologues, dialogues and choral sections, usually with instrumental/ensemble accompaniment or with independent instrumental/ensemble sections, including scenes and costumes Although the musical developments in the Renaissance, especially the madrigal, as well as the typically Renaissance ideas about humanism and the 'revival' of ancient Greek classical culture, have prepared the road for the creation of opera as a new musical theatrical form, it is commonly understood that the beginnings of opera belong to the Baroque, a period which ushered its later development in Europe It is possible that the whole texts in ancient Greek tragedies were either sung throughout or maybe intoned with heightened pitches and emphatic intonation, which was not just a plain declamation or reading of text In many Orthodox churches throughout the world, the Orthodox Liturgy, for example, is still performed exclusively musically, with all its text being sung, either by the priest or the choir (chorus), without a single liturgical text, hymn, or prayer being just read Epic songs from the Balkans are also exclusively sung, although they, like ancient Greek tragedies or Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, are long narratives.
