How Is Baroque music similar to Romantic music?

Differences between baroque and romanticOk I go to a music school so I guess I can answer this one! Baroque and Romantic music are two types of music which are included in the broad term most non-musically educated would call "Classical music". Classical music is actually music from about 1750-1825. Baroque and Romantic music are actually not very similar in many ways, however many structures (such as sonata form, ternary form, rondo form etc) are used in both musical periods. Sequences are used in both, as are melodic lines and chords. Major and Minor keys are used in both of course, as are time signatures etc. Both periods use homophonic and contrapuntal textures.this is all i can think of at the moment, hope this has helped! AnswerThe above answer is pretty good. I can think of one other thing that those periods have in common, and it is virtuosity. In some Baroque compositions, a cadenza was frequently used. A cadenza is essentially a little section within the coposition where the performer (pianist, vocalist, etc) would be expected to add their own ornamentation. It was an opportunity to add their own "voice" to the composition, and it frequently became a showcase for virtuosity. The same regard for virtuosity can be seen in much music of the Romantic period, with the most notable virtuosos being Paganini and Franz Liszt.
