MCCLEERY, D.: Discover Music of the Romantic Era (Unabridged)

Amidst a background of wars and revolution, the 19th 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 the period: Discover Music of the Romantic Era charts the course of music through these turbulent but exhilarating times. This light-hearted but authoritative audiobook tells the fascinating, often scandalous, life-stories of the 19th century’s greatest composers.
