Part 1: Corelli and Patronage/Power in RomeFirst, consider Corelli's importance to the Roman aristocracy. What did those in power stand to gain from the patronage of the arts, especially considering Rome's political system?Then, discuss the modern relationship between music and politics. How is music (or art more broadly) used in the modern pursuit of political power? Why do you think certain music is chosen for political events or for political candidates? If you're not sure where to start with this question, consider the following the clip of Katy Perry's performance at the 2016 Democratic National Convention and Hillary Clinton's bid for the American presidencyPart 2: Haydn and BeethovenConsider the composers we've discussed so far in this course (Corelli, Haydn, and Beethoven). Of these composers, who do you see as having the most creative freedom in their compositional process and who has the least? What factors allowed for this freedom, or lack thereof, and how we can hear this in their music? To fully answer this question, you will need to consider and discuss the composers' individual circumstances that can include, but are not limited to, location, concert culture, and patronage. Make sure to include specific musical details in your response. These details can come from lecture/the readings, but you are welcome to include your own listening observations as well!This portion should take around 200 words to answer. Requirements: 400 words
