The dates of the Classical period in Western music are generally
accepted as approximately 1750 to 1825. However, the term classical
music is used colloquially to describe a variety of Western musical
styles from the ninth century to the present, and especially from
the sixteenth or seventeenth to the nineteenth. This article is
about the specific period from 1750 to 1825. The Classical period
falls between the ? Baroque and the ? Romantic periods. The best
known composers from this period are ? Joseph Haydn, ? Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart and ? Ludwig van Beethoven; other notable names
include ? Luigi Boccherini, Mauro Giuliani, Fernando Sor, Muzio
Clementi, Jan Ladislav Dussek, ? Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and ?
Christoph Willibald Gluck. Beethoven is also sometimes regarded
either as a Romantic composer or a composer who was part of the
transition to the Romantic; Franz Schubert is also something of a
transitional figure, as are Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Luigi Cherubini
and Carl Maria von Weber.
