Compare and Contrast: Baroque vs. Classical Music


Essay, 2003

8 Pages


Abstract or Introduction

At first glance, the Baroque music period and Classical music periods seem to be very much alike. They do, in fact, have many similarities, for instance, the same basic orchestral and chamber ensembles. However, by carefully analyzing each period, distinct differences can be found. The word ‘Baroque’ comes from the Italian word barocco, which literally translates to bizarre, however some feel that when dealing with the arts, exuberant is closer to the aim of the translation, and exuberant is a word that perfectly fits this style of music. Although Baroque was first used to describe ornately decorated buildings in Austria and Germany, it quickly became used to describe a similarly ornate period of music.
