The Baroque

Published: Mar 04 2021

Continuing on with our art history series, this episode we’ll focus upon the aesthetic of The Baroque, with reference to European classical music. The term ‘Baroque’, coined by 19th century critics, describes the period in western European classical music between 1600 to around 1750. The name derives from the Portuguese barroco, or “oddly shaped pearl.” Join our host, Dani Van De Broucke, as she explores the lives and works of Domenico Scarlatti, Antonio Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach.
