    Is this strictly classical music or would baroque, romantic era and opera be acceptable?

    I would say that baroque definitely qualifies as classical music. Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel were all baroque composers.

    Technically, baroque and classical are separate classifications, hence why I asked. Beethoven falls under the romantic era.

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_music

    This article is about Western art music from c. 1000 AD
    to the present. For Western art music from 1750 to 1820,
    see Classical period (music) . For other "classical" and art
    music traditions, see List of classical and art music
    traditions .
    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    THE CLASSICAL PERIOD (1775-1825)

    THE CLASSICAL PERIOD (1775-1825)

    The Baroque period culminated in the masterpieces of J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel. In the middle of the eighteenth century, contemporaneous with the mature years of Bach and Handel, a new musical style developed that is known as Rococo or preclassical style. This style is most evident in keyboard and orchestral music, but it is mentioned here because it represented a transition from the Baroque to the Classical era, occurring between 1725 and 1770.
    Classical period (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The dates of the Classical period in Western music are generally accepted as being between about 1750 and 1820. However, the term classical music is used in a colloquial sense as a synonym for Western art music, which describes a variety of Western musical styles from the ninth century to the present, and especially from the sixteenth or seventeenth to the nineteenth. This article is about the specific period from 1730 to 1820.[1]

    The Classical period falls between the Baroque and the Romantic periods.

    Wikipedia also says,

    Baroque music is a style of Western art music composed from approximately 1600 to 1750.[1] This era followed the Renaissance, and was followed in turn by the Classical era.
    But in the next paragraph, it says,

    Baroque music forms a major portion of the "classical music" canon, being widely studied, performed, and listened to.
    Make up your mind, Wikipedia.

    Wiki differentiates between the term used in the colloquial sense and in the technical sense, hence why my post begins with 'Technically'.

    Fair enough. Technically, no, you cannot post your favorite baroque pieces. But colloquially, knock yourself out.
