Baroque music, from the Baroque period of Western Classical Music, was composed in the range of the late 1600s to 1700s AD. The first Baroque composer is widely recognized to be Claudio Monteverdi. The death of Johann Sebastian Bach (1750) is generally considered to mark the end of the Baroque period. The most important composers of this period were JS Bach, Handel, Domenico Scarlatti and Vivaldi. The music of these four men (the first three of which were born in the same year) continues to be enjoyed by millions.
