GENRES IN 14TH TO 16TH CENTURY INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC: IMPROVISATION – STYLE – GENRE Dr. phil. Kateryna Schöning

The project deals with the problems of the formation of genre and of the coalescence of style and genre characteristics in Renaissance instrumental music (e.g. Prelude, Toccata, Ricercar, Canzona, etc.). Hitherto, no research has been done that concerns the combination of style and genre influences on early instrumental genres in composition or instrumental practice. This applies equally to the processes in which the earliest instrumental genres came up during the 14th to 16th century, the emergence of instrumental genres and the role of adaptations for other instruments, modality and tonality in early genres of instrumental improvisation, etc.

 

The projects wants to contribute to answering these questions concerning style, genre, and instrumental practice in Renaissance music as well as their further development.
