"Classical" is the name the Romantic composers of the nineteenth century gave to the period immediately before them, with Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert particularly in mind. The use of the term "classical" was subsequently expanded to include the Romantics and both earlier and later compos…ers. It was used to distinguish their products from "popular" music such as commercial and ethnic music. By implication, this use of the word "classical" denotes music that is primarily written, as distinct from music learnt by ear. Beyond that, the term is a meaningless shibboleth. ( Full Answer )
Baroque musique is classical music! It's just from a particular era of classal music (the baroque era).
"Classical music", strictly speaking, is music written in the years between 1750 and 1820. Progenitors of the classical style include W.A. Mozart, of course, Haydn, and Beethoven. It's a light and very logical style, full of consonant harmonies and easy to listen to.. However, I think you are proba…bly asking about that music that is not the so-called "popular" music, i.e. jazz, rock, hip-hop, etc. The ways in which that music differs from popular music is mostly in how it is handled and is a very, very long discussion.. I highly suggest that you check out the Wikipedia article on classical music, and then narrow your question.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_music ( Full Answer )

In the mid 18th century, Europe (the heart of art and music) moved into a new "formally elegant" style called Classicism. Classicism actually originated during the Renaissance, but took on a more ordered, formal and contrasting style during the 17th century. The term "classicism" was retained, but c…ame to mean a different style. ( Full Answer )
Most music in the Western tradition is either in a major or a minor key (although many pieces will switch back and forth). A "key" might also be thought of as a "pitch collection" - the series of notes from which a composer will construct their piece. A more popular way of thinking of it is that maj…or and minor represent different musical "moods" with major being associated with brightness or happiness and minor with darkness, volatility, or sadness. A specific example? Beethoven's first three piano sonatas are in F Minor (No. 1), A Major (No. 2), and C Major (No. 3). But each of these sonatas has four movements, and individual movements may begin in different keys (the sonata's key as a whole is usually determined by the key of the first movement). For example, the second movement of the first piano sonata is actually in F Major. ( Full Answer )
Mozart, beetoven, just to name the most famous classical composers, other modern ones are shostikovitch and prokoviov, any pieces from any of these composers or countless others can be considered classical music, but the classical period is the period when Mozart was around, before beetoven, and aft…er the baroque period.

Romantic music immediately followed the Classical era so uses a lot of the same structure and basic harmonic principles, but pushed those principles to create new styles of music. While the Classical era was mostly focused on form, beauty, and balance, the Romantic era shifted focus to the individua…l and focused on emotion and the personal human experience. The symphony orchestra was also greatly expanded during the Romantic era and works became larger and more harmonically challenging. ( Full Answer )
No. Îonophonic and polyfonic styles of music -like gregorian hymns,organoum, discantous- were the first types of music(dating back to 7th-9th century). Soon the barok writers took over and eventually after the 17th-18th century classical music came up, followed by the romantic century and then th…e contemporary. ( Full Answer )
The term 'Fortspinnung' is frequently used to define Baroque music. Fortspinnung is a German word that describes the constantly unfolding nature of the music. When you listen to music from the Baroque, you will notice that it rarely comes to a complete stop. Even at Cadences, one or more voices lead… into the next phrase. By Contrast, music from the classical period has a much stronger focus on phrase units. Try listening to a Bach Prelude and Fugue (Baroque) and a Mozart piano Sonata (Classical) and comparing the phrasing. You can find some good examples on youtube. You may also notice some differences in the texture. Baroque music has a strong focus on counterpoint, or line against line. If you listen to a Bach Fugue for example, you will probably notice that there are several different lines moving freely of each other. One may leap up while the other leaps down, or one may step down slowly while another is moving quickly in many different directions. Classical music has a focus on harmony, or chords. While there are still different lines in much of Classical music, you will notice that there is a more distinct melody with a chordal accompaniment. ( Full Answer )
Classic music is the kind of music played by Louis Armstrong in the "Roaring '20s"
The difference between classical music and modern music is that classical music was written hundreds of years ago, by Beethoven, Handle...etc. And they are not produced using electricity, eg. electric guitars and microphone. They are normally 'calmer' than modern music.
I think classical music was popular in the 1900's. ____________ Broadly defined, "Classical music" can refer to any art music from the 9th Century to the present. The distinctions are becoming blurred , but art music is music other than the popular forms listened to casually, or enjoyed by t…he majority of young people, like rap, jazz, all the forms or rock, country, etc. Classical music in this sense is being written today. People are writing large-scale works for symphony orchestras for example, that follow structural ideas and that often deal with sound that is free of lyrics. Many young people today think that lyrics and music are identical, or that the music is incidental or less important. No value judgments here-- just observations. On the other hand, the "Classical Period" is more narrowly defined as being roughly between the periods known as Baroque and Romantic. This period is about 1730/1750 to 1815/1820. Music from this "Classical Period" is just a part of the "Classical music" as thought of in the broad definition. Mozart is the highlight of the Classical Period, and Beethoven is sometimes regarded as an important transition figure between Classical and Romantic periods. So, Classical Period music was indeed popular music during the Classical Period, between the early 1700's and the early 1800's. But classical music is wildly popular even today, and it is not likely that the classical craze will end any time soon. See links for more. ______________ Classical music is still popular, but it seems that 'popular' depends on how many people enjoy it. Besides that, the music today was formed on the foundation of classical music, no matter how different it may sound. Classical music wasn't the beginning of music, but it has had a big impact on music today. So, you could easily say it's still popular today. ( Full Answer )

Umm ohmygosh i think its like something with the tunes and notes and like the instruments.=D
Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky first comes to mind. Try also 'Rite of Spring' by Stravinsky, or Goreczcki (spelling?) Symphony No 3.
Aside from exposing them to some of the greatest music ever written (in my opinion), I would unfortunately say nothing. There are rumors that having a child listen to classical music will make them "smarter," but this theory has no foundation whatsoever.
Classical music is a genre of music therefore had hundreds of composers. Examples include Antonio Vivaldi, George Frederic Handel, Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Liszt, Giuseppe Verdi, Felix Mendelssohn, Frederic Chopin, Johannes Brahms, Pyotr Ilyich Tcha…ikovsky, Maurice Ravel, Aaron Copland, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Richard Wagner, Johann Strauss, Jean Sibelius, George Gershwin, and Dmitri Shostakovitch.

Yes ... one must have a thorough knowledge of music theory and counterpoint. One must also know about the instruments he/she is composing for - their ranges and limitations. Some instruments readily read the "C" clef, others you will have to transpose into other keys for them Start with a simple …one line melody at first. Then add other voices. ( Full Answer )
This question is a little too general, but I think I know the answers you are looking for. Early orchestras had 30 to 60 players. As the music progressed to the classic/romantic period, the size of a symphony ochestra increased to 60 and above, exceeding 100 or hundreds, if choirs were involved. Th…en there are the groups with fixed numbers, like quartets and trios that tell you from the designation how many players are needed. Another grouping popular in the past was the chamber orchestra. This was just a small orchestra. This is not to be confused with groups that played "chamber music". They played pieces specifically written for three to nine performers. This was the amount of musicians that could fit in a large room or "chamber" in a rich person's house and still have room for spectators. ( Full Answer )
Classical Music started in Ancient Egypt. The good composers are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Johann Sebastian Bach.
Beethoven only composed very few pieces in a "classical tone", primarily his first symphony. He was taught by Haydn, a classical composer, so it would make sense for Beethoven to start off by composing a classical piece. Later on in his life though, he composed very Romantic style music. His second …symphony, Eroica, was a key example of the romantic era. ( Full Answer )
Romantic Music is similar to classical music because it relates with the same texture of harmonies and melodies in which both genres are developed. All music in the world is made up of rythms, harmonies, pitches and melodies that make up a tune.
No, but it does tend to relax the brain so that it can do its best thinking. In other words it wont make you smart, it will simply make you think clearer
No, Motown is influenced by Soul and Pop primarily However, in the first few years, Motown used members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to play the backup music.
It is educational Ans.2: Because it has been written, and has to be performed, by real musicians (i.e. not 3-chord guitarists), it needs to be listened to, not merely heard, and it lasts - music from every century at least back to the 14th is regularly performed and enjoyed, And has real talent u…nlike most modern popular music.

Everything! The same theoretical elements of western music are used for all sorts of music: Jazz, Pop, Latin, Gospel, Musical Theater, etc. When we think of classical music, we usually tend to only think of Bach or Mozart, but these composers actually influenced the theroetical understanding of how …music functions and how we as listeners interpret the music. Just think, without Bach there wouldn't be a Beyonce, or a Kesha, or whomever. ( Full Answer )
That was the period when dynamics began to develop. Instruments were developed that allowed grand shifts in volume throughout the piece. In prior areas, volume would remain the same throughout the piece, but classical composers used dynamics to make pieces more interesting.
In the generally accepted sense of classical music in western cultures, classical music is almost always scored, or written out , whether it is for a solo instrument or for a group of musicians. There are some examples of music that have improvisational elements, structural elements that can be arb…itrarily arranged, or that have some chance or aleatoric elements. ( Full Answer )
Difficult question. The biggest inspiration for creating western music was religion. It was never birthed at a certain time but it evolved from the music that came before it. In the Vatican, throughout the early middle ages monks would sing in perfect fifths and would learn and sing by ear. It was P…ope Gregory who is often credited as the man who first notated and simplified music. It was very raw and simplified but it allowed monks to read the music they were learning. This evolved, more notes and note lengths were added and eventually evolved upon until the common score was created (with a bass and treble clef.) It was during this evolution that was called the medieval period of music, where most of the music being created was coming out of Italy. After this came the Renaissance which is generally seen as being from 1400-1600 where music had evolved to be able to be played in small groups and notated easily. This is when countries such as France and Germany had their influence on the standard European music. It wasn't until the birth of Bach as a composer that the rest of Europe had effect on classical music. He was German. From that point on, Germany, Italy and France were the biggest composers. The classical era was born out of the Baroque era. It was birthed in primarily Germany and Italy. ( Full Answer )
Technically, no. Classical music is it's own genre, and from a certain time period (~ 1759 - 1830). It is also 'Western music', while 'African music' is not. Thus, they are two completely separate entities. However, that does necessarily not mean that certain musical ideas present in classical music… are not present in African music, because music can do whatever it wants and show up where ever it pleases. It simply means that these ideas are not intentionally placed in the music - it was just a coincidence. ( Full Answer )
Western musics in general, including classical music, usually use the diatonic scale system in equal temperament, with standard pitch set at A = 440 Hz.
No. Generally, Classical music consists of music created by an Orchestra or a smaller group of musicians who all play 'live' together on real instruments. These might include violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, oboes, trumpets, horns cymbals and kettle-drums, for example. There may also be vocal per…formers. The group all be playing from a score written by the composer of the music. The group's performance is often co-ordinated by a person known as a conductor who gives visual cues to ensure the intended time, feel and dynamics of the piece are adhered to. Hope that answer helps. ( Full Answer )
Yes at that time it was the Romantic almost modern era.

The word "classical" is used in two different ways in music. The first refers to the style of most music written in the time approx 1750 to 1820 (of course, the change was gradual). Notable composers of this time are Mozart, Haydn, early Beethoven and Schubert. The other sense refers to a much bro…ader style of music. about 90 years ago, jazz became a distinct style of music, separate from all the music that was around then (which is what we now call classical), and in jazz, all modern popular music has its roots. So classical music is essentially all music that is not "popular" music. It tends to use acoustic or orchestral instruments (although in the last 50 or so years, this has begun to change).

I would say if you knew how to play hymns on a violin or viola that would be good classical music.
Answer 1: No it isn't Answer 2: Technically no. Baroque music belongs to its own period, the Baroque period (1600-1760). It was followed by the Classical period (1750-1830). Baroque music and Classical music differ in terms of music theory, instrumentation, and key people. However, a lot of peo…ple (laymen) generalize pre-1900s music as "Classical music", so you could call Baroque music Classical music. Also, instead of using the term "Classical music" you could use the term "Serious music" ( Full Answer )
Saptak means "gamut" or "the series of seven notes". It denotes the set of swaras, Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni which comprise a musical scale in Indian classical music.
The main 4 voice parts in order from highest to lowest are soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. Soprano and alto are sung by women, and the tenor and bass parts are sung by men.
Not at all. Your musical preferences don't make you weird. Besides that, music's popularity is proven by its sales. Classical sells quite well.
The beginning date is usually given as 1750, at the death of J.S. Bach. That's more just a matter of convenience, though, because there were composers continuing in the Baroque style afterwards, and the "pre-classical" or "rococo" style can fairly be said to emerge during the 1730s-1740s. Still, the… decade of the 1750s also marks the beginning of Haydn's adult career, so it's a pretty good place to start. The end of the Classical era is much, much harder. The older opinion was simply to round it off and say 1800, which also coincides more or less with the beginning of Beethoven's 2nd period--the Eroica symphony (n. 3), etc. More recently I've seen people say 1820-ish, when Beethoven goes into his more experimental 3rd period (C# minor quartet, op. 131!); this also gives a nod to Schubert, whose songs in the late 1810s (cf. "Gretchen am Spinnrad") were Romantic by anyone's definition. Also it gets you past the death of Haydn. Same problem exists on this end of the era, though--you have holdovers who continue writing a Classical style, and there are bursts of Romanticism earlier. Carl Dahlhaus even argued in his 19th-Century Romanticism in Music that Classicism and Romanticism coexisted for most of the earlier part of the century. But 1750-1820 will do for a shorthand answer.

'Classical music' is actually made up of a number time periods (one of the main ways works of the genre are categorized). One of these periods is known as the 'classical period'. The word 'classical' was later (ie in the 20th century) applied to the whole genre, regardless of time period. The class…ical period is called 'classical' because of its concern for formal organization, a concept that observers linked to the ideals of ancient Greece (the original meaning of 'classical' refers to classical Greek). The first known use of this term for music defines 'classical' music and 'romantic' music as opposing trends. In current usage, 'classical' is more likely to be considered the opposite of 'popular' music. ( Full Answer )
Asking what is about classical music is a very broad question. Classical music usually has to do with orquestras, chamber music, chorales, and solo istrumental works. There are different eras in classical music in which the music portrays a different philosophy or feelings. The most common eras are …the baroque(1500s-) with composers like J.S Bach. Classical(1700-) with composers like Mozart and Beethoven. Romantic (1800s-) With composers like Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Puccini. Modern or Impressionists( 1900s-) composers like Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Prokofiev, Rimsky Korsakov, Igor Stravinsky. Contemporary( Alive Composers) like Mason Bates, John Cage, Carl Vine, Philip Glass. ( Full Answer )
Allegretto is a tempo marking, which means fairly fast, but not as fast as allegro. It can also be a title of a movement or a piece, since Classical movements are often referred to by their tempo markings.
Homophonic refers to when a single melody line or phrase is played by more than one voicing or group. it also refers to when a melody is being played with a simple accompaniment.
No. Classical music is typically European church music while folk music is the music composed and played by plain old folk from about any country, but particularly America.
Some of it is wonderful to work with kids (I taught it for many years). Pieces such as the suite form Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker", and Saint-Saens "Carnival of the Animals" are two good examples. Edit: Not necessarily. Classical music is for everyone. As for kids playing classical music, pieces …by Chopin, for example, might not be the best choice because of the emotions associated with it (somewhat depressed, heartbroken, etc). Beethoven's 'Moonlight' Sonata also deals with 'adult' emotions, so it also might not be considered 'children's music.' Although kids can play those types of pieces, it would be hard for them to genuinely be able to feel those emotions (assuming their life isn't a total tragedy). ( Full Answer )
About the only way to know is to listen to it. Answering this question in words is like describing the taste of salt to someone who never ever tasted salt. Listen to Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach. Then you'll have an idea of the style of classical music.
It wasn't. Beethoven initially developed as a composer during the Classical period. He admired the music of Mozart, which was marked by pretty melodies and simple harmonies, but not a great range of dynamics or complex structure. Gradually, Beethoven's music took on more expressive tones, passiona…te dynamics and grander orchestration. This was the beginning of the Romantic Era of music, and Beethoven not only provided the transition into this new period, but he also developed it and paved the way for later Romantic composers to build on this new, expressive style.
