Abstract

The core of my research has been discovering the approach performers had towards music in the seventeenth-century as compared to the present. The ways in which music can be created, discussed, interpreted, and the expectations of the audience, all influence the way in which the performance actually takes place. The cultural norms of today versus 400 years ago are quite different, and this is reflected within the music. The style of playing instruments has also changed drastically.

What I have uncovered in my research have eluded ways in which I may teach fellow musicians the correct performance practice for the period. While things have changed quite a bit, it is essential to learn about the beginning to understand the results; i.e. mordern approaches to music.
