Continuing a now 4 part series, this week we take a deep look at the Baroque Era, featuring composers like Bach, Handel, Couperin, Vivaldi, Purcell, Monteverdi, Biber, and more.  What made the Baroque Era distinct from the Renaissance?  A lot! We'll take a look at all of the innovations of the baroque, from tonality, the expansion of the orchestra, the emergence of true national styles, and the biggest key of the Baroque era, a focus on text and on meaning that distinguished it from the Renaissance. Thanks!
