Italian Baroque music is a genre characterized by ornate melodies, intricate harmonies, and dramatic contrasts in dynamics. It often features virtuosic instrumental solos and complex polyphonic textures. This style emerged in Italy in the 17th century and was popularized by composers such as Antonio Vivaldi, Arcangelo Corelli, and Tomaso Albinoni. The music was often written for the church or for wealthy patrons, and was intended to evoke strong emotions in the listener. The genre had a significant influence on the development of classical music in the following centuries.
