Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video is one of a series that traces the history of piano music over the centuries, from the Baroque period to the present day. Dr. Maurice Rinson, who is a music historian, teams up with keyboard professor Stewart Gordon to present an overview of piano techniques through these eras. In this volume, the focus is on the Romantic era. The film shows how the music was influenced by the literary and artistic trends of the times. The plight of the common person, revolutionary movements, and a veneration of nature all prevalent in other art forms, found expression in the music of the day.
