Romanticism Essentials

About this playlist

As with all labels, the 'romantic era' doesn't exactly have defined borders. Although it spanned roughly from 1870-1910, the music of the period can be divided into early and late: the late works of Beethoven, for instance, are often considered to be the dawn of romanticism, and many composers who lived and wrote well into musical explosion of the 20th century began in a more romantic tradition. Much like in art and literature, the romantic composers were all about self-expression, emotion on a grand scale and new ideas.
