Intrada

 

a short instrumental piece that serves as the opening movement to a formal ceremony, an entertainment, or a musical performance; flourished between the 16th and 18th centuries. The term “intrada” also referred to marches accompanied by fanfares (played during the ceremonial procession of dignitaries), pavanne-like pieces played for various occasions, and pieces performed in the ballet as quick, entertaining dances. During the 17th century the intrada, called the entrée, formed part of an instrumental suite; 19th- and 20th-century composers occasionally used “intrada” as a title for their works.
