The Romantic Era, initiated by the intensity of Beethoven’s style and lasting well into the 20th century, produced the most emotional, passionate and widely beloved classical music of all time. From the light-hearted, comic spirit in Gioachino Rossini’s overture to the opera Cinderella, the strong, folk-based nationalism of the “Czech” Suite by Antonin Dvorák, the flashy soloistic virtuosity displayed in Camille Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso and Pablo de Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen, to the lush, impressionistic late French Romanticism of Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, and even the bold 20th-century American neo-Romantic style in Elegy by John Corigliano, this program will inspire listeners with the wide dramatic breadth of Romanticism.
