Baroque Era (1600-1750)

There are some great soundtrack opportunities here.  The Caccini Ave Maria is a beautiful piece that is often performed at weddings.  The Sonata Sopra La Monica is a solemn piece evoking solitude and peace.  The Torelli Sonata in D creates an eloquent and refined atmosphere and is similar to the PBS Masterpiece Theatre theme.

[ This is a small, diverse listing of classical stock music compositions from 1600-1750.  The assortment of tracks highlights work from Baroque composers who have only one or two recordings in our library (not enough to give them their own separate cateogry). Major Baroque Era composers, like VivaldiHandel, and Bach, have been given dedicated categories on this site. ]

220px-hallelujah-score-1741.jpgThe Baroque Era followed the Renaissance, and was followed in turn by the Classical era. Composers of the Baroque era include Johann Sebastian BachGeorge Frideric Handel, Alessandro Scarlatti, Domenico Scarlatti, Antonio Vivaldi, Henry Purcell, Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Arcangelo Corelli, Tomaso Albinoni, François Couperin, Claudio Monteverdi, Heinrich Schütz, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Johann Pachelbel.

The Baroque period saw the creation of tonality. During the period, composers and performers used more elaborate musical ornamentation, made changes in musical notation, and developed new instrumental playing techniques. Baroque music expanded the size, range, and complexity of instrumental performance, and also established opera, cantata, oratorio, concerto, and sonata as musical genres. Many musical terms and concepts from this era are still in use today.
