From Wikipedia: Baroque popbaroque rock,[1] or English baroque,[2] often used interchangeably with chamber pop/rock,[3] is a pop rock musicsubgenre which originated in the United States and United Kingdom. It emerged in the mid-1960s as a fusion of pop rock and classical music, particularly of the baroque period.
Baroque pop reached its height of success in the late-1960s, with several prominent exponents emerging and/or incorporating the genre into their repertoire, including: The Beach Boys, The Moody Blues, The Beatles, The Left Banke, The Rolling Stones, Love and Procol Harum. Baroque pop's mainstream popularity faded by the 1970s, partially because punk rock, disco and hard rock took over; nonetheless, music was still produced within the genre's tradition,[2] and it exerted an influence on several subgenres. Such includes the arrival of chamber pop in the 1990s, which contained ornate productions and classical influences,[4] while contesting much of the time's low fidelity musical aesthetic. Furthermore, since the 1990s, baroque pop has seen a revival; several prominent artists, such asBelle and Sebastian, Regina Spektor and The Divine Comedy, have performed or incorporated elements of the genre in their work.
