Research periods

Fifty years ago, when Deutsche Grammophon started its pioneering Archiv Produktion label devoted to (increasingly authentic) performances of early music, the ambitious plan organized the works that were to be recorded in "Research Periods" and through the early 1970s all recordings on that label were classified according to the scheme. It still seems to us a good starting point, and as good a way as any to present information about the music, despite some deficiencies. Indeed, its schematic presentation might be considered prescient, only needing the new technology of the Internet website to realize its full potential. However, the subheadings 1-8 under section IVM have been added. Pure instrumental headings are linked to HOASM. Start the journey here.
