The Romantic Period
Romanticism (1820-1900) in music was brought to the world during the early nineteenth century. This music stressed emotion, imagination, and individualism. The Romantic period was about freedom of expression and breaking away from time-honored conventions.
This period in time had influenced many, or even all of the arts. Painters used bolder and more brilliant colors in their works. Also, they had preferred dynamic motion to gracefully balanced poses. Poetry was also changed during the Romantic Period. Emotional subjectivity was a basic quality in every type of art during this time. Many artists had become ?romantics? and had become drawn to the realm of fantasy: the unconscious, the irrational, and the world of dreams. Romantics were fascinated with the Middle Ages, the time of chivalry and romance. What neoclassicists had thought of to be the ?dark ages?, the romantics had cherished.
The Romantic Period was filled with many significant, brilliant musicians. Among these artists were Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Robert Schumann (1819-1896), Clara Wieck Schumann (1819-1849), Frederic Chopin (1810-1849), Franz Liszt (1811-1886), Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), Hector Beriloz (1803-1869), Peter Ilyic Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884), Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), Johannes Brahms
