/bəˈrɒk,bəˈrəʊk/

The word Baroque, derived from the Portuguese barroco, or “oddly shaped pearl,” has been widely used since the nineteenth century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750. To some, it was an overly ornate art form and to others it was an example of some of the most unique and exquisite natural forms. It’s all a matter of perspective.
