During the Baroque period, each country repeats the compositional formulas, but national tastes were the first steps to all kinds of new styles. In Italy the Opera and the Concert is promoted while in Germany religious music and fugue are emphasized. In England religious and theater Music are reinvented, while in France are being taken the first steps to get to Classicism.
Fugue is a polyphonic composition based on imitative counterpoint, in which a melody is systematically subjected to imitations and modifications of such luck that produces the feeling that the Subject or Main Melody seems pursued by himself.
Main contributions of Baroque Music are the creation of the Opera, the development of the orchestra and instrumental groups and the invention of the musical forms that will define symphonic and chamber Music forever.
