The Baroque: All About Contrasts!

The Baroque: All About Contrasts!

The term Baroque is used to describe a style of European classical music from around 1600 to 1750. The term, used to describe the visual art of the period as well, means “highly ornate and extravagant in style.” It’s very appropriate since Baroque painting, sculpture, and music are elaborately decorated in their own way – favoring ornamentation and business over simplicity.

For me, however, a term I’ve come to rely on to remember lots about Baroque music is CONTRASTS. Listen to found out why!
