Info Music(classical)

From time to time i'll post some informations about different subjects. I'll write in the title Info then the subject.

Classical music is usually divided into periods:
1) The Baroque period 1600 - 1750
2) The Classical period 1750 - 1830
3) The Romantic period 1830 - 1893
4) The Modern period 1893 onwards

Music may also be divided into categories like:
Instrumental
Sonata - Chamber music (trios and larger groups with one player per part) - Symphony - Concerto - Ouverture - Symphonic Poem - Programme music - Suite

Vocal
Opera - Solo song - Choral (including cantata and oratorio)
