I Know You'll Like!! What exactly is Baroque? Finally: Baroque
Composers Baroque Cello History Baroque Music! The most famous and important cello music of all time was by Bach: Prelude to Suite #1 and his six other suites. Most famous cello music was written on another instrument. For example, Bach's minuets for violin are better known for cello.
An other example of transcription might be: There are many, and for a cello player to give them to you, it could take years. My favorite (very well-known) are listed within the following: On Google or simply YouTube, search cello and then the mood to a piece. If you find one you like, search it and learn how to play it. Some are very hard, but start out easy and work your way up. In no time, you'll be playing like a pro.
Other sources you might want to see to find out more would be something along the lines of freesheetmusic.com where you could look up cello and whatever shows up first is probably most popular. Baroque ended when Bach died.
About 20 years before that, the end of the Renaissance era took place as well.
The Rococo Period soon followed. Auguste Franchomme

Gaspar Cassado What lots of people do not realize about the world now is that there are still many composers in business that actually make millions of dollars off of it. Of course there is cultural music everywhere, but classical music is played now less and less. The more we allow trash music in (like pop and electronic music), the more classical gets spit on. Although this may seem to you like an opinion, it is factual that the stats for classical music liking is at a downfall. People need to open their eyes to the spirit of music and not let rap stuff get in the way. It is a controversial cause, for sure, but it'd be better for society.
There are, also, many composers at any age alive today. (I am an example). The "Baroque" ages come from three different time periods: Early Baroque (c. 1590-c. 1624)
High Baroque (c. 1625-c. 1660)
Late Baroque (c. 1660-c. 1725) Each of these time periods were significant because of each of their composers. Most of the world's most respected, best, and most well-known composers come from the Baroque period.
Not only was it famous for its music, but it was extremely remembered for its art, sculpture, architecture, literature, and theater. Some composers that you might know from this time would be:
Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, and Lully (there are many more) Lots of composers in the Baroque time wrote many famous pieces for instruments they may not have ever played. For example, Johann Sebastian Bach, who mainly played organ and violin, wrote the six cello suites, well, for cello. Cello was held between the calves back then, so it was rather difficult to play. Most string composers are famous for their violin concertos, but cello sonatas, however, are always remembered. Of course, cello music could be transcribed to treble clef to be played on the violin, but it was rather difficult to play at that point. 1. Johann Sebastian Bach
2. George Frideric Handel
3. Antonio Vivaldi
4. George Philipp Telemann
5. Arcangelo Corelli
6. Henry Purcell
7. Domenico Scarlatti
8. Jean-Philippe Rameau
9. Johann Pachelbel
10. Giovanni Battista Sammartini (Enlarge timeline to see) In Baroque Vivaldi also had a very famous reputation as a composer. His most well known cello song, that was not written originally for violin, was his Cello Concerto in G minor. Paganini Caprice No. 24 Op. 1 (Transcribed for cello) (Wells Cunningham) Gabriel Faure - Elegie
W. H. Squire - Tarantella
The Swan - Camille Saint-Saens from Carnival of the Animals
Bukinik - Concert Etude #4
Frederic Chopin - Etude in A flat minor, Op. 25, No. 1
Bach's six cello suites
Edward Elgar - Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85 TOO MANY MORE That's it for the compilation. Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for some more.
BYE ~Mark Egan~ Why was Baroque so special? The Baroque Period (NOT to be confused with general classical music) was the gateway or the key to the following generations of music. It set the bar to, for example, Mozart, Beethoven, Hayden, and Paganini. Without a revolution such as Baroque, there would be no advancement in the area of music, and it would not be so important to mankind. Emanuel Feuermann
