Abstract

The Baroque era in music was a turning point for musicians around the world. For the first time, all instruments, (specifically the natural trumpet) had their own repertoire, and were being featured through solos in many settings. In the Baroque era, many new forms and styles were developed by French, German, Italian, and English composers. Among the most successful composers were; Monteverdi and Frescobaldi in the early Baroque, Couperin and Purcell in the middle Baroque, and Handel, Bach, and Vivaldi, in the late Baroque (Ammer 31).
