History

Music based on modes.Richer texture in four or more parts. Blending rather than contrasting strands in the musical texture. Harmony with a greater concern with the flow and progression of chords.

Baroque Period

Classical Period

Music is tuneful and very organized and melodies tend to be highly decorated and elaborate. Conflict and contrast between sections in a piece and between instruments are common, and the music can be quite dramatic.

Romantic Period

Renaissance Period

Modern Period

Modern music allows composers to emulate traditional musical ideas while implementing their own creative approach, promoting complete freedom in all dimensions, including melody, rhythm, and chord progression.

Music from this era sounds almost boundless and free from any limitations of form. Much of this music is programmatic—that is, it is meant to describe something, perhaps a scene in nature or a particular feeling.

Music from this period is orderly, balanced and clear. Its form is very important as is its harmony and tonality—that is, the musical key in which a piece was written.
