Classical music is the art music produced in, or rooted in, the traditions of Western liturgical and secular music, encompassing a broad period from roughly the 11th century to present times. The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common practice period.

Classical music in 1632Edit

Throughout his stay, Balthazar Abrabanel became an enthusiastic fan of modern classical music as he was long sick of hearing the music of his era, particularly lutes.[1]

NUS forces played certain pieces of post-17th century classical music at the Battle of the Wartburg as part of a psychological attack on Spanish forces.

Classical music and other music genres were gradually introduced to the European culture.
