ABSTRACT. Antioh Cantemir’s substantial effort is his Petrida, an unfinished epic glorifying the Emperor. His language seems antiquated to the modern reader: he stuck to the gallic system of rhyming, which was subsequently discarded. Antioh Cantemir’s poems are generally satires in the manner of Juvenal. Cornicello contends that the music of the young French composers was based on slow harmonic development, and was devoid of a prominent melody or a strong sense of pulse. Stern argues that the element of chance has become an accepted contemporary aesthetic, which has challenged musicians to reexamine and reevaluate the elements of music and musical sound.
