After viewing the concert excerpts, construct a comparison of these two concerts. For this assignment I chose to compare and contrast two concerts. The first concert is from the modern era, while the other is a Baroque Era concert originating from the 17th Century preformed by a modern day orchestra. The Baroque Era Concert takes place in a large modern day Lutheran Church in front of a small crowd of well dressed onlookers. The second concert that I chose for this assignment is a modern ay rock concert from the English Symphonic Rock Band, Muse.
This concert takes place at the 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire Theatre in London, England. The crowd is large and ruckus, the concert is loud, bright, and energetic. Did you enjoy the concerts? If so, why? If not, why not? How does the music differ between the Baroque era and now? How is the music similar? How does the role of concerts differ between the Baroque era and now? What types of people attended concerts in the Baroque Era? Who attends concerts now?
