SmartSound’s collection of classical music is impressive, with 28 albums currently featuring tracks labeled as classical. Numbers from genuinely classical composers such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart are well-represented, as are modern composers who write in classical style. Just as guitars are essential in modern rock music, strings are the heavy hitters in classical. SmartSound’s Classical Royalty Free Strings Music fills these albums with the beautiful sounds of violins, violincellos, and acoustic basses.
Baroque musical style implies embellishment with flourishes as colorful as they are, sometimes, extreme. Spirited Baroque 1 from album Parlour Games pours it on, despite only four instruments used in this Chamber Group quartet track. It’s regal and dignified, reflecting the power of just a few people working together. As was done for movie Marie Antoinette, whimsically juxtaposing modern music in a 200-year-old story, this track could find a home in an Indie Film or Short Film.
