What is early music?

For the purpose of this calendar, "early music" is defined as works composed prior to 1750, including the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque repertoire. Popular composers include Dowland, Praetorius, Purcell, Handel, Bach, Telemann, Vivaldi, and many others.

If your entire program is of works composed later than 1750, including the Classical and Romantic periods, your listing is not appropriate to this calendar. Popular composers not appropriate to our calendar include maestros Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, etc. An exception is made for concerts which feature works of the Classical or Romantic periods in a historically informed performance on period instruments.
