Siciliano

 

a popular, 17th-century instrumental or vocal piece similar to the pastorale, in 6/8 or 12/8 time, often with a dotted rhythm and usually in a minor key. Its Sicilian origins have not been substantiated.

Vocal sicilianos were frequently included in Italian operas and cantatas. Fast sicilianos were often dance-like songs similar to the gigue. Far more common were the slow sicilianos, both vocal (in Handel’s operas) and instrumental (Handel, J. S. Bach, and W. F. Bach). The siciliano was revived in the later works of Haydn and Mozart.

Green, por ejemplo, sostiene que nada puede ser mas anacronico que un programa revolucionario para la abolicion de la esclavitud basado en la monarquia y la religion, y que esta idea tiende a obscurecer los motivos reales de la primera guerra servil siciliana, que no fueron ni comunistas ni meramente anarquistas; para el autor no hay duda de que no se trata de una forma de socialismo primitivo (1961: 20).

For example, the first theme (bars 1-46), a Siciliana, represents Chopin in Poland before the Rising; it is a kind of paradise; the second theme (bars 47-83) is a sudden, violent storm or battle, which refers to the nation's struggle for freedom; and the Siciliana rhythm that recurs throughout the rest of the work suggests unfulfilled aspirations and dreams, similar to the dreams of 1831, when it seemed that the damage and misery wrought by the Russians could be minimalized.
