The Classical Period didn't last too long, about 70 or so years, but when stacked on top of what occurred during the Baroque period, it gave us music that will undoubtedly be with us forever. Step into what I have come to call the real 'class acts' of musical innovation.
We were coming of age musically and by the end of the 19th century we had witnessed the birth of several still popular musical styles. More and more personal styles such as Folk were in demand by the common people. Some made their own music to help others relate and tell the world how things were going. Things were changing.
We'd been using multiple formats and devices for recording and playing our music for a couple decades and were due a change. Vinyl albums are now sought only by collectors, 8-track tapes too faded into history after a very short lifespan.Then came cassette tapes which were great for a little while but..
We made it! We've finally reached plug n play status! Actually, the point and click generation never had it so easy. Thanks to not only personal computers but tablets, palm-helds, smartphones, jet packs, and digital apps of every kind therein, we carry our music literally right at our fingertips. A mere touch plays our music on a hoard of digital gadgets and apps. 😀
