Classical Pacific, Thursday, March 1, 2018: The Romantic Period


Tuesday's program covered music of the Baroque, and Wednesday featured music of the Classical Period. Today, I'm focusing on the Romantic Period. So many composers - so little time. If there's a theme for these thee days, it's the fickleness of fame - composers who were famous in their lifetime, yet faded in time, and those who may or may not have been recognized in their time, but have grown in stature over the centuries. Today, listen with me to Kalkbrenner, Saint-Saëns, Chabrier, Alfven, Beach, Albeniz, Schubert, Brahms and Massenet.
