A New Kind of Music

During the Enlightenment, classical music was the new media of expression. Classical music came about to express the feelings of the time; formality, harmony, and control. Balance and order were encouraged over the more spontaneous and emotional improvisation of the non-western world.

The music of the Enlightenment is still relevant to this day. The works of Mozart and Haydn are still performed and apprecaited today.

Haydn Symphony no. 76 in E flat major 1/4
