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.
