I’m studying and need help with a Film question to help me learn.
A variety of 19th-century musical types that are the forerunners of film music.
Describe Descriptive music, Programmatic Music, and Symphonic poem, including their basic qualities, important composers, and similarities to film music.
• Descriptive music: the term descriptive music is often applied to music that either depicts a general mood suggested in a text, title, and program, or mimics specific physical movements and natural sounds, such as wind, thunder, and animal noises.
• Programmatic Music: Instrumental music that tells a story, suggests an image, or evokes a designated mood is referred to as programmatic.
• Symphonic poem: a piece of orchestral music, usually in a single continuous movement.
