The History of Music – A Brief Guide to Genres and Festivals

Music has been an essential part of human life for thousands of years. It is one of the most powerful and pervasive art forms in the world, influencing people at all levels of society.

In the ancient world, music was recognized as an important adjunct to religious ceremony, and was performed in homes and theatrical productions. As the modern world developed, the popularity of music increased, leading to a multi-billion dollar industry. Today, it is widely studied and enjoyed, and its lyrics deal with a wide variety of themes and topics.

In the early 20th century, musical tone was defined by regular vibrations. This distinction gave a fixed pitch to music and distinguished it from noise.

During the early nineteenth century, composers exploited the unique sonorities of their instruments. This allowed them to record sounds directly, and created works without the need for a traditional interpreter.

The 18th-century philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel deprecated wordless music. Instead, he preferred vocal music to instrumental music.

The Roman philosopher Boethius was known for his conservative philosophy, and he accepted the use of music in church services. Nevertheless, he was averse to innovation.

Aristoxenus, a pupil of Aristotle, believed that music fulfilled an emotional role. Aristoxenus also denigrated mathematical considerations.

Greek thought continues to influence contemporary thought on the nature of music. Sextus Empiricus characterized music as a type of rhythm, and described it as the “art of tones.”

For centuries, music was thought to have no objective meaning. However, the concept of listening began to gain acceptance slowly.
