The program includes works by Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel, as well as other important composers who contributed to music of the Baroque period, stretching from about 1600 to 1750.  This extremely productive period for vocal and choral music produced the first operas, larger-form cantatas and oratorios, including arias and independent art songs.  The modern orchestra was also developed during this era — both in musical forms and new instruments.
