Background of Classical
Burgh (2006), suggests that the roots of Western classical music ultimately lie in ancient Egyptian art music via chironomy and ancient Egyptian orchestra, which dates to 2,695BCE. Classical music is art music rooted in the traditions of Western music (both liturgical and secular). It encompasses a broad period from roughly the 11th century to the present day.
