An unwavering belief in the power of music to touch people’s lives - that’s the spirit of Calm Radio’s Baroque Music.
Drama, exuberance, and grandeur were found in the sculpture, painting, architecture, literature and dance of the Baroque period and those traits extended into the realm of Baroque music as well. Elegant and complex polyphonic textures prevail. Drama and urgency are incorporated into vocal form, while vibrant rhythms and expressive harmonic dissonances heighten tension in compositions.
Many compositions that form the classical music canon of today are gifts from the Baroque period. Composers like Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Monteverdi, Scarlatti, and Henry Purcell expanded the size, range, and complexity of instrumental performance, while also establishing mixed vocal/instrumental forms of opera, cantata, and oratorio, and the instrumental forms of the solo concerto and sonata.
Begin your journey into one of the richest and most diverse periods in music history. Let the spirit of Calm Radio’s Baroque channel be the music soundtrack to a day at work, study, focus or even sleep music. Let the vibrant energy of the time boost your mood, productivity, and creativity.
