Western music history dates back to 400 AD beginning with the medieval era. Western music underwent a massive transformation through each era (Renaissance, Baroque, Classical era, Romantic era and the contemporary). Though vocal music was in rage for most of the time period, instrumental music came into limelight during the 17th century with instrumentalists such as Vivaldi (violinist) and Bach (organist and violinist) reaching great fame and laying down fundamentals of western instrumental music.
Components of Western Music
