Western Music then started</p><p>becoming more of an art form with the advances in music notation and more focus on secular</p><p>themes that occurred in the Renaissance period. We then have expansions of range and</p><p>complexity as we move into the Baroque era. The Classical era gives us the emotional power</p><p>associated with such composers as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Romanticism then transforms the</p><p>rigid styles and forms of the Classical era into more individualistic stylizations. Tonality was at its</p><p>peak during this period, then Impressionist music paved the way to the use of extreme</p><p>dissonances in the music of the Modern era. This process continued into the current</p><p>Contemporary period of music.</p><p>Book Discussion Read Latest draft Edit View history Search</p><p>Main Page</p><p>Help</p><p>Browse wiki</p><p>Cookbook</p><p>Wikijunior</p><p>Featured books</p><p>Recent changes</p><p>Donations</p><p>Random book</p><p>Using Wikibooks</p><p>Community</p><p>Reading room</p><p>Community portal</p><p>Bulletin Board</p><p>Help out!</p><p>Policies andguidelines</p><p>Contact us</p><p>Tools</p><p>Create account Log in</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

For western art</p><p>music, there is no clear dividing point - the Renaissance in music happened at different times in</p><p>different places. So for convenience, we will use 1400 A.D. as the start of the Renaissance.</p><p>About this book [edit]Authors</p><p>Subjects: Western Music History Music Art history</p><p>Add links</p><p>What links here</p><p>Related changes</p><p>Upload file</p><p>Special pages</p><p>Permanent link</p><p>Page information</p><p>Cite this page</p><p>Languages</p><p>Sister projects</p><p>Wikipedia</p><p>Wikiversity</p><p>Wiktionary</p><p>Wikiquote</p><p>Wikisource</p><p>Wikinews</p><p>Wikivoyage</p><p>Commons</p><p>Wikidata</p><p>Print/export</p><p>Create a collection</p><p>Download as PDF</p><p>Printable version</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?
