Episode 78: The Baroque Era


We’re kicking off a brand new, four-part series on the podcast — all about the four main periods of Western classical music. First up? The Baroque Period!

If you like things that are extravagant and fancy, then you will love the music of the Baroque period! You probably are familiar with some of the composers and music of this time in music history, even though you may not have realized that it was part of this era. So what exactly makes a piece of music “baroque”?  We’ll learn all about that in today’s episode!
