About Temperaments

Historical Overview

This section contains a brief graphic overview of types of temperaments in the context of classical composers. The bottom half of the graphic has live hotspots, but the upper half (with the names of composers) is sadly lacking in interactivity.

If you click on a miniature and get the full-size chart, you can press backspace to return to the current History image.
