Romantic Era - A 'Project Climax' Subcategory - 15 CDs


Romantic Era (1820-1880)
The period in music history that we call the Romantic era lasted from roughly 1810 until sometime around 1900. There was no drastic break with the Classical era which preceded it; rather, the difference is one of degree. Romantic composers stretched the accepted rules of harmony and form, creating novel musical structures and exploring new and richer harmonies, both in instantaneous sonorities and over the course of a whole piece or movement.

The term "Romantic" comes from the predisposition of many nineteenth-century composers towards the fantastic, idealistic, and marvelous – qualities associated with medieval romance. Composers in this time expressed much more intense and personal emotions in their music than had composers of previous eras. It was also around this time that the idea of the musician as an artist – rather than a craftsman – began to take hold.

Romantic music remains the most popular style in today's concert halls, and it is difficult to choose just ten works to represent this rich and varied era. If you enjoy the music on this list, you should try out some music of the worthy composers we have had to omit, such as Gabriel Fauré, César Franck, Edvard Grieg, Franz Liszt, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and Camille Saint-Saëns.
