NewBaroque is all about Baroque music in the 21st century.

The Baroque period of Western art musical history started around 1600 and ended around 1750. It was characterised by a highly ornate style of writing, and it was the period in which counterpoint and polyphony were explored and developed by composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach.

The relevance of Baroque music in the present day is indisputable; Baroque music is widely recoded; Baroque music is streamed (see the J.S. Bach Foundation's 25-year project, for example); Baroque music is used in commercials; Baroque music is used as a teaching resource and many modern composers are inspired by Baroque music, choosing to integrate elements of the Baroque style of writing into their own works.

It is without doubt that Baroque music will continue to be central to music as a whole in the years to come.
