Giuseppe Torelli

April 22, 1658 - February 8, 1709
born in Verona, Italy, composed during the Baroque period
Giuseppe Torelli (1658-1709) was an Italian composer and violinist of the Baroque era, noted for his essential role in the development of the solo concerto, concerto grosso, and chamber sonata forms. Torelli's career took him from Verona to Bologna, Anspach, and Vienna, and he once toured Germany in the company of the castrato Pistocchi. The chronological publication of his music in seven collections enables scholars to follow his advances in style and form. His interest in the trumpet resulted in sets of sinfonias and sonatas for the instrument, an unusual diversion for a composer usually associated with string music. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Besides classical pieces composed during the Baroque period, I also enjoy bluegrass and some country music as well. I'm certain that this piece and many others written during the Baroque period raise my awareness and my Spirit. Torelli is so easy to listen to!. I revisit his work often.

If you enjoy classical music, you probably have an above-averag e IQ. And usually you are a better, more mature person. You either have it or you don't. But exceptions certainly exist, even in large numbers.

I have never been a huge fan of the Baroque era but Giuseppe Torelli has become my exception. Concerto grosso in E minor, Op. 8/9 blew me away. Truly masterful and moving. I could listen to it several times consecutivel y .

I know baroque and early classical Music has helped me organize my thoughts. It also helps restore me often times. I don't know about boosting IQ but I think it helps in understandin g things.

I don't know about IQ, but listening to classical music increases my appreciation for all that is beautiful, disciplined and exalted. Like climbing a mountain and finding yourself in fresh air with breathtaking views. Thus the metaphor of uplifting to describe this music.

Research has shown that an individual's IQ is variable within 20 points or something, and as the listener formerly known as dbradfor said, Baroque music can improve cognitive ability (to your potential).

There is a lot of research to support the idea that listening to music can improve cognitive ability (to your potential), but the Mozart Effect was more marketing than science.

Orale

No, it's not true. IQ is set at birth and is a measure of potentiality , not actuality. Just because you have a high IQ doesn't mean you're going to be the most successful at life but, sadly, the lower your IQ (once you pass the average of 100), the less you can function.
I think the name of the town the composer went to was Ansbach, not Anspach.
