Editors' Notes It’s hard to pin down exactly what classical music is, but we can generally understand it as Western, composer-centric music that relies on traditional orchestral instruments like strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and piano. Within those parameters lie the impressionistic melodies of Debussy, the playful drama of Mozart, Mahler’s grand symphonic visions, Bach’s ethereal dexterity, Stravinsky’s aggressive, rule-breaking rhythms and orchestration, and so much more. What threads all these works together is their attempt to communicate something beautiful about what it means to be human.
