Series: The Romantics

The Romantics
A revolution in art and literature swept through Europe and by the early 1800’s Romanticism dominated the musical landscape. Such figures as Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Brahms exemplified the ideals yet maintained highly individual approaches. Now, our finest historically informed musicians and scholars present this incomparable repertoire in a series destined to become an essential part of every serious music lover’s collection.
With this ongoing series, Musica Omnia pays homage to the great composers of the nineteenth century, by presenting their works in new, historically-aware performances featuring some of the leading artists of our time. The music of such familiar composers as Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schumann is complemented by the works of less commonly heard composers such as Sigismond Thalberg, Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Gabriel Fauré and many others. Such artists as Penelope Crawford, Max van Egmond, Jaap Schröder, Kenneth Slowik, Emlyn Ngai, Sally Pinkas, Steve Larson and Mark Fraser and Enid Sutherland are featured both in solo repertoire and as members of ensembles such as the Adaskin String Trio, The Atlantis Trio & Ensemble (Earlier Recordings), Smithsonian Chamber Players and The Axelrod Quartet. Enhancing each release is an informative booklet featuring major essays by such leading writers as Susan Youens, Larry Todd, John Daverio, Rufus Hallmark and Robert Mealy.
