same timeframe, Piano and Violin were perfected
Classicism resulted in architectural designs drawing on the greek and roman types of structures.

In terms of music, the "classical" era was just prior to the Industrial Rev. After that, they were able to build all these instruments, so it was a new era (Romantic). It's not so much dates as it is style - many classical musicians wrote romantic music and vis versa.

"classical" in terms of physics is the idea that the universe is ideal and can therefore have finite solutions.

classical is just another term meaning stuff created by old, dead, white guys.
