The article presents information on Baroque music and its influence on performers and audiences. The performers and audiences in the Twentieth Century have found an increasing satisfaction in Baroque music and have demanded it in purer forms. The composers, too, have been influenced by the styles and attitudes of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries. The formal methods of the Baroque have become part of the equipment of those composers who desire more freedom and at the same time more precision than Classicism admits.
