Dive deep into the luscious music of the German Romantics, with this celebration of the rich beauty of choral voices: the drama of Beethoven and the delicacy of Schubert, the eloquence of Mendelssohn and the resonant harmonies of Brahms and Bruckner, culminating in Schoenberg’s passionate and powerful plea for Peace on Earth.
This was the age when music got personal, as composers shook off the old conventions of balance and restraint to seek out fresh ways to communicate feeling. Inspired by the magnificence of Nature, the unexplored paths of dreams and a deep awe of the divine, the Romantics opened up choral music to unlimited horizons of both grandeur and intimacy.
