The Romantic era produced some of the biggest orchestral works ever written.
The emotional outpouring and go-big-or-go-home attitude of the composers, combined with the ever growing size of the orchestra, was a recipe for heart-on-sleeve music pushed to its limits. This class explores some of the more famous masterpieces of the time, as well as some tasty music you might never have heard before.
