The Baroque style - one of the richest traditions in Western music - emerged during the late 16th century and lasted well into the 18th. Italy was the source of this new impulse, which soon spread across Europe, and the period was one of contrasts and innovations. Few other eras witnessed such a profusion of new forms: opera, oratorio, cantata, sonata and concerto.
