How Much Music History Can You Illustrate In Less Than 7 Minutes? [VIDEO]

Just like everything else, music too evolved through the ages and countless genres of music have been created through time. History has given us some really notable music composers and performers, including names of people like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Ludwig Van Beethoven.

In this video, the Spanish artist Pablo Morales de los Rios shows an incredible display of talent by trying to artistically narrate the entire history of music – in less than seven minutes. Perhaps we should say, he is rapidly attempting to outline the evolution of Western classical music, from the Dark Ages to the present day.

But the question is: how many significant names the artist can convey via these drawings and the background music in such a short time? Where’s Stravinsky? Where’s Bartok? Where’s Shostakovich? Who else do you think the artist could or should have illustrated on this list?
