Show Summary Details


This chapter starts with a discussion of modernism. Modernism comes in many forms. It has had a long history since the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, which are referred to as the “early modern” period. In musicology, it is difficult to distinguish the “modernity” of early repertories due to terms such as “Renaissance” and “Baroque.” Francesco Petrarch's Sonnet No. 245, “Due rose fresche” has been examined here. It is a sixteenth-century sonnet that many composers in this period tried to give music to like Andrea Gabrieli and Luca Marenzio. These two composers have different interpretations of the sonnet. Versions of “Due rose fresche” are discussed and analyzed in this chapter, as are its criticisms.
