The Classical period emerged in the 18th century, when aristocratic societies in Europe sought to emulate the elegance, simplicity and proportional balance found in ancient Greek art and architecture. Music from the Classical period was characterized by flowing melodies, lightness in mood, clarity of form and homophonic textures. In this informative 60-minute video-lecture, music historian Dr. Maurice Hinson uses compositions by Haydn, Clementi, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert to explore the performance practices of piano music in the Classical period.
