The RomanticsStreaming Video - 2012
The Romantic movement-a reaction against the orderliness of 18th-century classicism and 19th-century industrialization-strove above all for self-expression. The Romantics composed for themselves and the new bourgeois audiences that now frequented concert halls and were acquiring pianos for their living rooms. Chopin's A-Flat Polonaise is performed in Chopin's house outside Warsaw, Mendelssohn's Elijah and Brahms' Requiem in the halls where they had their premiere performances. Contents include excerpts from: Chopin's Polonaise in A-Flat, Prelude; Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony (Finale), Octet, "He watching over Israel" from Elijah; Schumann's "In the heavenly month of May," Symphony No. 3 ('Rhenish'); Brahms' Lullaby, Symphony No. 2, Ein Deutsches Requiem, Clarinet Quintet; Bruckner's Symphony No. 7.
