Musical Style - Introduction to the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic Eras Musical Style views the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras from different perspectives, including the spirit of the time, the characteristics of the keyboard instruments and their varied playing techniques, the leading keyboard composers, the performance venues, and the basic elements of music and interpretation that give the music of each era its distinctive character.
