Romantic Music
Listen to special web programs about periods in music history.

Romantic music came into its own at the beginning of the 19th century. Music from this era sounds almost boundless and free from any limitations of form. Much of this music is programmatic—that is, it is meant to describe something, perhaps a scene in nature or a particular feeling.

Featured composers: Chopin, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann
