Music in the making; 19th Century Opera Expansion
Music in the making. Produced by Milliken university under a grant from the Educational Television and Radio Center in cooperation with the National Association of educational broadcasters. The Milliken School of Music presents concert vocalist Hubert Norval chairman of the voice department in a recorded consideration of expansion of opera in the 19th century. Rather than talking at length Professor Norval is elected to give you four musical examples of this period to introduce the subject briefly. Here is Professor Norval. Wagner excelled in the use of the leitmotif with impassioned declamation. The orchestra serves no longer primarily as an accompaniment but is closely associated with the dramatic action on stage vapor and Wagner inspired the orchestral portions of their scores through the use of instrumental tone painting a painting a vivid quality never before realized in opera. At the
same time in Italy Verdi he was busy writing melodic operas. His plays in the evolution of opera is one of degree of creative inspiration rather than that of the innovator. Let us now listen to a soprano aria from Rigoletto. Don't know me. Naturally Verity imbue these conventional forms. That is the are your
trio in quartet and other set pieces with a creative vitality not a let's listen for tenor and baritone from La Foret said it is Dino. Oh. Oh oh oh oh oh. Oh. The fact that there have been some on street corners and played and
mystically by the organ grinder must not blind us to the fact that his genius was a colossal one. Here's another are your 410 A from Rigoletto. At the end of life someone once termed
opera. In France during the 19th century we have composers like oh and others. Let us now hear a tenor aria from by law. Was was loath. That's important to help pave the way for the development of
instrumental and vocal art of the 20th century. Professor Hubert Norval has brought here a recorded consideration of the expansion of opera in the 19th century.
