Jump to: navigation, search

Classical music is music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western culture, including both religious music (from which it originated) and secular music. The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common-practice period. The term may also more narrowly refer to the period from 1750 to 1820 (the Classical period).
