Composers on the interval began enlarging sonata building, equaling the melody using additional elevated diploma and chromatic chords, and moreover rising a recent type of music that lent the dramatic and presumably not the bodily sides of music. We appreciate logic, intellectual progress, order, but we also appreciate imagination, emotion and human nature. It is quite possible for a man to write a book almost automatically. The Romantic fascination with the subconscious led to their ultimate philosophical goal: the hunt for the sublime. It is in this rare fact of communication that you get the root of aesthetic pleasure. He remembers always that he is mixed up with earth. The improvement of varieties and harmonic concepts that grew to turn into excellent from the interval enlarged from the interval.
We think and make our own decisions on all matters of our lives. Classicists, on the other hand, are wary of intuition. I have met the preliminary objection founded on the bad romantic aesthetic that is such verse, from which the infinite is excluded, you cannot have the essence of poetry at all. From the cave paintings of the Paleolithic era to the abstract expressionism and Pop Art of the 21st century, we have seen styles of art evolve and develop. Classicism, however, is quite the opposite and remains simple using trustworthy techniques. Since it has a long history, western music is classed into several periods or eras: medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, modern, 20 th century, contemporary and 21st century music periods.
I must say here, parenthetically, that I use this word without prejudice to the other discussion with which I shall end the paper.

Needless to say, the Romantics thought the Classicists were stuffy old bores, while the Classicists turned up their noses at the wild Romantics' desire to let it all hang out. In rejecting Neoclassicism, Romantic artists began to find themselves rejecting the foundations of Western art itself. It is used loosely by all kinds of people who talk about art, to mean something vaguely and mysteriously significant. This always seems to be the case in successful changes; the privileged class is beaten only when it has lost faith in itself, when it has itself been penetrated with the ideas which are working against it.
