The classical era in music, the transition from baroque to romantic music, lasted from around 1750 till 1800. In this period the symphony as a seperate work of art was developed. Another characteristic is the so-called sonata form, a way to structure music. The term classical for this music refers to the ancient Roman and Greek cultures, that were idealised in that era.
