The term classical music is used to refer to the music of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras, which ranged roughly from the years 1600 - 1900. Classical musical consists of some of the world's best known and celebrated composers, such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Weber, and many more. Classical music can be heard by orchestras all throughout the world. In modern times Houston Symphony is very popular among classical music fans.
Coming out of the Renaissance period of music, classical music made a move toward music that was much more expressive than previous forms. Its composers used concepts such as instrumentation in order to invoke emotion in their audiences by writing parts for specific instruments. Today, classical music is often used as the background for major motion pictures in order to produce certain emotions in movie-going audiences. It has also made stars of many solo artists, such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinists Andre Rieu and Joshua Bell.
