Synopsis by Alice Day
During the Romantic period, music developed with the advent of the symphony orchestra. Instruments continued to be improved as both brass instruments and woodwinds became more versatile, and the grand piano became a fixture. Music of Man: The Age of the Individual explains how these new tools helped to propel composers such as Paganini, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Verdi, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, and Strauss to new heights of creativity. Their works were marked by emotion and passion not previously experienced in music history.
