Classical music

Often, in everyday speech, when we say “classical music”, we refer to anything with an orchestra, pieces that are not in our familiar song form or groups comprised instruments that are not modern and electric. However, classical music is actually a specific style that developed in the 18th and 19th centuries, with an immense historical value, that influenced everything that came after it. It is characterized by clear melodies, with some instruments playing a secondary role and some others coming to the forefront. The classical composers sought to prove that music unites people from all over the world, regarding music as a universal language.

The most well known classical composers were Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, comprising the “Vienna School”. Some of their works follow:

Joseph Haydn (1732 – 1809)

Sting quartet no. 76
