Romantic Era Listening

Rachmaninoff, Schumann, Chopin, Mendelssohn, and others composed during the Romantic Era. Music from this era sounds boundless and free. Much of this music is programmatic — meant to describe something, perhaps a scene in nature, or a feeling.

  1. Prelude in G Minor, Op. 23, No. 5 by Sergei Rachmaninoff

2. Widmung (Dedication) by Robert Schumann, transcribed for piano by Franz Liszt
