Baroque Music
Listen to special web programs about periods in music history.

The period called "Baroque" in music history extends roughly from 1600 to 1750. Baroque music is tuneful and very organized and melodies tend to be highly decorated and elaborate. Conflict and contrast between sections in a piece and between instruments are common, and the music can be quite dramatic.

Featured composers: Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel
