Classical Music /Orchestral
: European Music Tradition
Classical music gets its form from the educated European musical tradition
that is influenced by both popular and folk music. It is often
thought to represent the cultural history of Europe, America
as well as other parts of the world. It is also fondly known
as Orchestral Music. Orchestral comes from the word Orchestra
which means a musical organization consisting of a group or
instrumentalist. These two words are closely knitted a most
orchestras play classical music.
Most of the early recordings and pieces played in concerts today
are said to be dated since the 1600s. Classical music has indeed greatly
influenced the development and growth of music, often being
referred as the standard in music education.
Classical music as we know it today is very diverse and has
many styles and takes many forms, including music from the Baroque
period, Renaissance period, Impressionistic, Romanticism, Chamber
to the experimental Avant-garde style.
Some reknown famous classical music composers include Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Stravinsky.
