Author: David McCleery
2 CDs with 160-page booklet:

  • 20,000-word essay
  • Timeline of events in music, history, art & literature
  • Illustrated throughout

Amidst a background of wars and revolution, the nineteenth century produced many of the world's best-loved composers. Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and Tchaikovsky are just some of the many familiar names whose music was shaped by the events of period: Discover Music of the Romantic Era charts the course of music through these turbulent but exhilarating times. The 160-page booklet includes a light-hearted but authoritative essay telling the fascinating, often scandalous life-stories of the nineteenth century's greatest composers. It describes how they created musical history, and their many different styles are illustrated by two-and-a-half hours of carefully chosen music contained on two CDs.
