The year 1744 in classical music and in lyrical art
1744. With other artists, Johann Sebastian Bach, Alphonsus Maria de Liguori and Domenico Scarlatti influenced their time (baroque era / classical era). That year would see the birth of future classical or lyrical artists, while others would disappear such as André Campra. That year, new works would be composed, published or performed for the first time in public, such as “Semele” de George Frideric Handel, for example.
All these moments, more or less notable, make the year 1744 a page in the history of classical and lyrical music to be discovered or rediscovered. soclassiq currently lists more than 40 of these moments for 1744.
