Bach and the Baroque

Bach and the Baroque

Baroque music tends to be known for its clarity and concision: Think Pachelbel and Purcell, or J.S. Bach. Spanning the 17th century through the beginning of the Classical era around the mid-1700s, the compositions here also chart the emergence of forms like the concerto, sonata, and oratorio. This playlist is regularly refreshed by our classical editors. If you like a piece, add it to your library.
