Classical music is art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western culture, including both liturgical (religious) and secular music. While a more precise term is also used to refer to the period from 1750 to 1820 (the Classical period), this article is about the broad span of time from before the 6th century AD to the present day, which includes the Classical period and various other periods. The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common-practice period.

Western staff notation is used by composers to indicate to performers the pitch, tempo, meter and rhythms for a piece of music. This can leave less room for improvisation and embellishment than in other musical styles. The classical period saw a dramatic increase in the size of instrument ensembles and orchestras, as well as public concerts. Composers began writing longer works for these large ensembles. Musical terminology became increasingly complex, as did the harmonies used in Western classical music.

During the classical period there were many developments that led to the modern day orchestra that we know today including; string instruments such as violins becoming more prominent with four fiddles being standard; wind instruments becoming more standardized into sections with each playing a different role e.g. flutes playing high melodies, clarinets playing middle range notes etc.; keyboard instruments such as harpsichords and pianos becoming more widely used; new types of orchestral layout such as seats being placed in a semi-circle around the conductor with first and second violins on opposite sides so they can play harmony together rather than just one line of melody with accompaniment; improvements to instrumental technique such as vibrato being used on string instruments; range extension e.g. trombones originally only had one note but over time new positions were added so they could play a wider range of notes; greater use of dynamics e.g playing forte (loud) or piano (quiet); and an expansion in orchestral size from 12-13 players in early orchestras to up to 100 players in late 19th century symphony orchestras


The baroque period in music history is generally considered to span from 1600 to 1750. Baroque music is characterized by heavy use of counterpoint, elaborate ornamentation, and rich, often grandiose texture. Violin music from the baroque period often makes use of the instrument’s unique capabilities for improvisation and display. Notable composers from this period include Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Arcangelo Corelli, and Georg Philipp Telemann.
