The time or predominant style of Western classical music composed from around 1600 to 1750 is referred to as the baroque period or style. The Baroque and Classical eras, which came after this one and were themselves followed by the Renaissance musical era, were connected by the Galant style. The Baroque era can be divided into three primary periods: early, middle, and late. They usually have overlapping dates between 1580 and 1650, 1630 and 1700, and 1680 and 1750. The “classical music” canon includes a sizable amount of baroque music, which is often studied, played, and listened to today. The word “baroque” comes from the Portuguese word “barroco,” which means “misshaped pearl.”
The Baroque era is thought to have reached its pinnacle with the compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel. The other notable composers of the Baroque era include Arcangelo Corelli, François Couperin, Heinrich Schütz, Dieterich Buxtehude, Domenico Scarlatti, Alessandro Scarlatti, Antonio Vivaldi, Henry Purcell, Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Domenico Scarlatti, Domenico Scarlatti, and Georg Philipp Telemann.
Ex Libris Hermes and Shalom Music Academy worked together to organize the Sách & Sol performance, which had a Baroque music theme, on August 20 at Piquantum Design Studio, and everything went off without a hitch. Audiences and artists traveled back in time with the aid of cello, guitar, and opera ensembles performing the best works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrich Händel, A. Corelli, and Ferdinando Carulli. The show revived a dazzling musical era in Western culture and evoked a wide range of feelings in the audience.
